Abstract

<p>This paper demonstrates the comparative costs of a number of forms of electrotherapy: infrared irradiation (IR), laser, ultraviolet radiation (UVR), microwave diathermy (MWD), continuous shortwave diathermy (CSWD), pulsed shortwave diathermy (PSWD) and combined continuous and pulsed shortwave diathermy. The costing comprises two main elements; the purchase and running costs of the machine itself, and costs related to the employment of physiotherapists to carry out the work. The first is presented as costs per hour and the second is discussed in more general terms. Machine costs vary widely between treatment types, with infrared irradiation the cheapest form of treatment, and combined continuous and pulsed shortwave diathermy the most expensive.
