Power2Cell Cell Energy System
The Power2Cell was developed in the years 2004 – 2006. The basic idea was to develop a microcurrent device for the ‘patient’, ie the medical layman to perform a home therapy. The technical basics of the Power2Cell are 1to1 taken from the medical device Vital Master. From the hardware side, there is almost no difference between the Power2Cell and the Vital-Master, from an electronic point of view. The device was a joint project consisting of 3 persons: Schwab, Prof. h.c. Bernd Walitschek and Dr. med. univ. Vlastimil Voracek.
Power2Cell a wellness product
The device was (originally) designed to be used as a ‘wellness product’. The first devices did not have medical approval and therefore could not and could not be used in professional medical, physical and naturopathic practice. The basic principle was to increase the feel-good factor of the user. It was not about the definition of ‘pain therapy’. Pain therapy is basically a medical application.
Medical devices are all instruments, apparatus, devices, software, substances and preparations made of substances or other articles used individually or interconnected, including software determined by the manufacturer specifically for use for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes and used for the proper functioning of the medical device manufactured by the manufacturer for use by humans by means of their functions for the purpose
(a) the detection, prevention, monitoring, treatment or alleviation of diseases;
b) the detection, monitoring, treatment, alleviation or compensation of injury or disability,
(c) the examination, replacement or alteration of the anatomical structure or a physiological process; or
d) the concept of birth control

The current Power2Cell have undergone a conformity assessment procedure in accordance with Annex II of Directive 93/42 / EEC and are therefore CE-marked medically.
Power2Cell from a technical point of view
From a technical point of view, the Power2Cell mainly consists of the Vital-Master from 2003 (manufacturer: Walitschek Medizintechnik). Therefore, this technology is almost 15 years old and was not further innovated from the stand in Power2Cell.
The Power2Cell uses microcurrents, as all devices in this segment, there are not many ways to innovate this from their basic structure. However, this only refers to the pure current <1mA. The waveform, the design of the therapy signal, the frequency range and of course the ‘interactivity’ are the most important and decided differences that make up the success of the therapy. The Power2Cell has neither the software side nor on the hardware side the possibility to work interactively let alone to therapy.
Application and application possibilities of the Power2Cell
According to our current state of information, the purpose of the Power2Cell is: “Pain and movement restrictions on the entire musculoskeletal system” (Instructions for Use, 2012, p. 6).
The short description according to the instructions for use (2012) says the following:
“The Power2Cell device is a diagnostic and treatment system that belongs to the category of micro-current Biological Cell Regulation (BCR) therapy and is used in medical pain therapy. The device is used by the user as a therapy device for home treatment “(Instructions for Use, 2012, p. 6).
