How does whole body hyperthermia work?
For a whole body treatment, the patient lies comfortably on a bed underneath an insulating tent. Mounted on the roof of the tent is the Heckel HT-3000 Whole Body Hyperthermia System which emits warming Infrared (IR) light. IR light warms the body safely and while under careful monitoring, the patient is kept at the desired temperature for the length of the treatment.
Local treatment of hyperthermia can be administered while on a patient table and IR light is administered to a specific region of the body.
Hyperthermia therapy is always performed under supervised conditions with continuous monitoring of vital signs, including: Blood pressure, PO2 (oxygen saturation in the blood), Pulse rate, Respiratory rate
