INDIBA is a registered name for a type of medical equipment used to provide radiofrequency treatment to patients experiencing pain from inflammation and damaged tissue. These conditions can be caused by injuries which have been corrected through surgery or physical therapy. Although the creators of INDIBA did not discover the healing component of radiofrequency, they have been researching and refining the delivery of such healing through medical equipment for 35 years. Enabling equipment to provide the 448kHz necessary to promote cellular level activity has created INDIBA therapy. It is the application of this process used to promote such healing.

The Use of Radiofrequency as a Medical Remedy
