Does INDIBA® ACTIV have any contraindications?

INDIBA® ACTIV works from inside the tissue respecting the physiological environment of the cells and increases in a safe, gradual and homogeneous way the temperature of the areas that are going to be treated.

This therapy respects cellular physiology, is painless, non-invasive and produces a pleasant sensation that has no adverse effects.

Before starting a treatment with INDIBA® ACTIV it is recommended to consult with the opinion of the physiotherapist, who will evaluate each patient in an individual  way.

INDIBA® ACTIV contraindications do not exist for healthy patients without pathologies but it must be borne in mind that it may be inadvisable in very specific cases. We explain you in below!


In general, we must bear in mind the contraindications of INDIBA® ACTIV on patients with pacemakers or electronic implants. Its application in open wounds or in skin that has not healed (blisters or recent burns) should also be avoided.

Pregnant women should refrain from performing the treatment and should not apply to the chest area during breastfeeding.

If the skin has suffered a very intense sun exposure it is advisable to restrict its use between one and two days. However, healthy skin that has recently sunburned is not an impediment and working at a moderate power can even help drain the erythema caused by sun exposure.

Patients who suffer a loss of sensitivity (such as congenital insensitivity to pain, nerve damage, paraplegia, or if they are taking drugs that reduce sensitivity) can work on biostimulation or low vascularization if necessary.

The INDIBA® ACTIV treatment does not cause skin burns in any case, however, in order not to interfere with the application electrodes, it is recommended to remove piercings or jewelry before starting therapy.

Another frequent question before initiating a therapy of this type is if the contraindications of INDIBA® ACTIV applied to patients who have suffered cancer. In particular, INDIBA has more than 30 years of experience in its field and has been working actively at the Ramón y Cajal Hospital in Madrid for 15 years. During this time, numerous articles and doctoral theses justify the safety of treatment in healthy cells. Therefore, INDIBA activ is a safe and safe therapy also for these patients for the pain management but it’s not an indication for the cancer treatment.
