AVACEN® Treatment Method (ATM)

How It Works

What is AVACEN®?

AVACEN® is a drug-free, noninvasive, over-the-counter (OTC) heat therapy system indicated for:

  • Minor muscle pain and joint pain, and stiffness
  • Joint pain associated with arthritis
  • Muscle spasms
  • Minor strains and sprains
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Temporary increase of local circulation

How Does AVACEN® Work?

AVACEN® products are intended to improve local circulation in muscle tissue in as little as 20 minutes of treatment, facilitating and improving microcirculation throughout the entire body. Since 2009, the benefits of AVACEN devices have impacted thousands of people worldwide, with over 20 million safe treatments to date. AVACEN is an FDA Cleared Class II medical device that is safe, effective, noninvasive and easy to use.

Vacuum Chamber

When the hand, enclosed in a special patented mitt, is placed inside the vacuum chamber, negative pressure and heat are applied to safely increase the temperature and blood volume flowing through high volume arteriovenous anastomoses (AVAs). It is important to note that the application of heat without negative pressure is ineffective.

Heat Infusion

Infusing heat into the circulatory system reduces blood thickness (viscosity) and increases microcirculation. Thinner blood facilitates more efficient flow through the skeletal muscles on its route to the smaller vasodilated capillaries (microvascular circulation) which the body uses to radiate the excess ATM produced heat.

Microcirculation Boost

An increase in microcirculation enhances oxygen delivery and nutrition to the skeletal muscles while carrying away carbon dioxide and waste. The result – healthier, more relaxed muscles throughout the entire body.

The Science Behind AVACEN®
Increase circulation

The AVACEN® Treatment Method

Over the last 2 years, AVACEN Medical® has been awarded 5 U.S. and 9 International patents for its unique apparatus and methods that support its innovative medical process called The AVACEN® Treatment Method (ATM).

AVAs are the Key

With over 4,000 programmed operating system instructions, the AVACEN® device manages the noninvasive and safe continued infusion of heat into the circulatory system. It does so by taking advantage of a unique arrangement of blood vessels called the arteriovenous anastomoses (AVAs) in the palm of the hand. The AVAs act as the body’s radiator to dump excess heat. ATM manipulates the AVAs so they can be used as a portal to infuse heat into the circulatory system. When dilated and distended by ATM, blood flow through an AVA can be 1,000 times more than the smaller capillary.

Muscular Relaxation Treatment

The warmed, reduced viscosity blood is rapidly circulated naturally to the organs and muscle tissue. In other words, wherever blood flows, enhanced oxygen delivery and nutrition occurs. Increasing the core body temperature is hypothesized to enhance enzyme* function for those with low core body temperature.

*Enzymes are large molecules (proteins), responsible for the thousands of chemical reactions that sustain life. Without proper enzymatic function at the correct temperature, these chemical reactions will either take place too sluggishly, or not at all. Therefore it is absolutely critical to have normalized core body temperature for good health.

Developed to Support ATM

Developed to support ATM, AVACEN® is an FDA Cleared and CE Mark Approved (EU) Class II OTC medical device. It is a unique noninvasive medical device that allows patients to systemically treat themselves from a single convenient treatment point (their palm) in the privacy of their home. Several clinical studies have produced scientifically significant results.

Supporting Studies

STUDY: AVACEN® Treatment Method (ATM) Sponsored by The Department of Veterans Affairs & The University of California, San Diego

RESULTS: A statistically significant reduction in widespread pain.

STUDY: Cardiovascular Effects of ATM Heat/Negative Pressure Conducted by San Diego State University

RESULTS: The heart does more physical work than any other muscle over a lifetime therefore muscular relaxation is important. This study produced a statistically significant reduction in “Mean Arterial Pressure.”
