The Science Behind The Technology

Microcurrent technology mirrors the body's natural current to promote quick and speedy healing.

Tissue, including muscle, tendons, ligaments, skin and bone, is formed from a large mass of similar cells that perform specific functions. These cells use tiny sequences of electric current, measured in millionths of an amp, to organise, monitor and regulate a stable state within the body. ArcEquine mimics these sequences.

When there is injury, damage or disease to a tissue, there is disruption to the normal electrical current within the cells and things fail to work properly. By introducing the correct sequences of current using the ArcEquine, the body's natural electric circuitry is replicated and kick starts and accelerates normal functioning.

Research has shown that microcurrent technology radically increases ATP. This is a high energy molecule that stores and transfers energy within all cells so that normal activity can take place. In theory, animals should be able to provide all the ATP needed but this does not always happen and any healing process requires large amounts of ATP, which can become depleted. Microcurrent stimulation increases ATP production by up to 400% and when introduced can enhance and accelerate healing in a fraction of the normal time. Pain is also minimised and effectively controlled.

Tim Watson is currently employed on a fractional basis, as Professor of Physiotherapy at the University of Hertfordshire. He has been employed at the University since 1998 and has held his (full) Professorial position since 2003. In addition to his academic research position, Tim work as a consultant in electrotherapy/electrophysical agents, working for various professional bodies, legal and insurance companies, manufacturers and retail groups undertaking work on a contract basis.

As part of his research, Tim has actively researched and published in the field of Microcurrent Therapy and its applications. The views expressed in these documents are his own and reflect an independent stance based on the available evidence, rather than from a commercially oriented perspective.
