      Interferential Electrical Stimulation is used on deep tissues like the pelvic floor muscles, which with standard (faradic) stimulation methods would require a high and often painful stimulation intensity to reach. Interferential Stimulation increases the frequency, which reduces the body impedance and lowers the stimulation intensity needed to affect deep tissues. Interferential stimulation often involves placement of more electrodes and therefore can take more time.
