Bioadaptive impulse therapy explained

Bioadaptive Impulse therapy is a type of electrical stimulation therapy that is used in all key series pain relief devices designed to be adaptive to the body’s physiological responses.

In this type of therapy, electrical impulses are delivered through electrodes placed on the skin to stimulate the underlying tissues and muscles.

The initial impulse is transmitted into the body, and then the medkey measures the response of the tissue and adjusts the subsequent impulses accordingly in real time.

The idea behind this approach is to deliver stimulation that is tailored to the individual’s specific needs and to achieve optimal therapeutic effects.

This type of therapy is used in a variety of medical conditions, including acute and chronic pain, muscle weakness, and nerve injury, among others. By providing stimulation that is customised to the individual’s body, this type of therapy can be more effective than traditional electrical stimulation techniques that use a one-size-fits-all approach.

The functional principle of bioadaptive impulse therapy

1. Impulse emission

The first impulse is emitted from the device as soon as there is skin contact.

2. Impulse absorption

This impulse only penetrates the skin in the range of a tenth of a millimetre. The receptors of the skin then process this stimulus.

3. Impulse transmission

Once the impulse has been absorbed by the body, the information is transferred to spinal and neurohumoral levels.

4. Impulse adaptation

The body’s “response reaction” in the form of a change in tissue resistance properties is measured by the device within microseconds and the renewed impulse delivery is then already adapted to this “body response”.

aims and objectives

Treatment with bioadaptive impulse therapy has the following objectives:

  • Rapid relief from acute and chronic pain
  • Improvement and restoration of function

Following treatment with the key series pain relief devices, more than 80% of the patients notice a significant change in their painful complaints. Users report an improvement in the tension state of the muscles, and a rapid decrease in soft tissue swelling has been observed in a large number of patients. This is probably due to a rapid lymph drainage caused by the special impulse technology.

Indications and areas of application

The aim of bioadaptive impulse therapy is the relief of acute and chronic pain, the improvement of blood circulation, passive muscle stimulation and improvement and recovery of function for the following areas of application:

  • Nervous system
  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Digestive tract
  • Urogenital area

The device is applied to intact skin. Direct application on injured skin is not advised.
The recommend treatment duration for the device ranges from a few minutes to a maximum of 1 hour. The treatment is usually performed by moving the device on the skin.
The field of application is primarily in trained, professional therapy, but also extends to trained private users.


Bioadaptive impulse therapy must not be used in the following cases:

  • On-demand-type cardiac pacemaker. or other electrically powered implant
  • Electrode placement over malignant tumours
  • Use over open wounds
  • Patients prone to seizures
  • Alcohol intoxication
  • Pregnancy

Side effects

Bioadaptive impulse therapy is extremely low in side effects. However, the following cases can be understood as side effects.

During treatment, symptoms may intensify as the body “dynamises”. In individual cases, this may be accompanied by increased pain, sore muscles and other reactions. However, these usually subside after a short time. If they last longer, interrupt the application for a few days and consult a health professional if needed.

Like all metals, the steels of the exchangeable electrodes of medkey, physiokey, and sanakey and contain traces of nickel. If you have a strong nickel allergy, skin irritation may occur.
