Discovering Rhyk

Precision Biostimulation

A technology that uses targeted electrical signals to stimulate the activity of nerve and muscle cells, aiming to promote positive health outcomes.


A specific range of safe electrical frequencies used by the novel Rhyk technology, optimized for stimulating the activity of nerve and muscle cells, aiming to promote health benefits. This mid-frequency range is chosen for its potential effectiveness in reaching deeper tissues without discomfort, making it a promising option for various therapeutic applications.


Specific range electrical frequencies at the lower end of the spectrum in our biostimulation technology. These frequencies can be particularly effective for pain management, muscle stimulation, and promoting relaxation - providing a gentle yet effective approach to therapy.

Carrier Frequency

A foundational aspect of our biostimulation technology: the underlying frequency that delivers therapeutic electrical signals very deeply into the body’s tissues. This frequency is crucial for ensuring that the stimulation is targeted, efficient, and comfortable for the patient, aiming to optimize the therapy's effectiveness for various conditions.


Our proprietary algorithm-based treatment patterns: personalizable combination of electrical signals’ frequency, intensity, and waveform. These modulations are designed to optimize therapeutic effects for different conditions. They aim to enhance treatment precision and effectiveness by adapting to the specific therapeutic needs of the patient and the tissue which is targeted.

Skin Resistance

The skin’s natural opposition to electrical currents. Our unique technology is able to overcome this barrier: Thanks to proprietary technology, it can deliver deep, therapeutic electrical signals in a way that is very gentle on the patient, enhancing both comfort and the depth of treatment effectiveness.

Exploring health conditions


The simultaneous presence of two or more diseases or medical conditions in a patient.

Multimorbidity/Multiple Chronic Conditions (MCC)

The presence of two or more chronic conditions or diseases in a person simultaneously. Essentially, both mean the same. Multimorbidity is more often used in clinical research and healthcare. MCC is more often used in discussions about healthcare policy, management strategies, and the effect of chronic conditions on populations.


An abnormality or dysfunction in the body (or mind), highlighting an imbalance without specifying the cause.


A broad term for any health issue, including disorders, diseases, or just temporary problems, without necessarily implying severity or cause.


The reason to use a specific medical treatment, based on the presence of a disorder or condition, which is guiding the therapeutic decisions.

Chronic Pain

Long-standing pain that persists beyond the usual recovery period, or accompanies a chronic health condition.

Musculoskeletal (MSK) Disorders

Conditions that affect the body's muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.

Neurological/neurodegenerative Disorders

Conditions affecting the brain and nerves, including diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. Our therapeutic solution can offer supportive care for managing certain symptoms related to neurological conditions, such as spasms, through non-invasive biostimulation.

Neuromuscular Disorders

A broad range of disorders that affect the muscles and the nerves that control them.

Metabolic Disorders

Conditions that occur when the body's usual process of metabolizing (breaking down) food into energy is disrupted or dysfuncitonal. This can include a wide range of conditions, e.g. diabetes.

Deciding on Rhyk

Blended Care, Hybrid care

A healthcare approach that combines traditional face-to-face medical consultations and treatments with digital health interventions and technologies.

Clinical Evidence

Research and studies that provide scientific proof of the effectiveness and safety of a medical treatment or therapy.

Integrated Care

A flexible therapy approach that patients can use both under professional supervision (e.g. in clinic, in dr’s office) and independently at home, ensuring continuous and adaptable care, making it easier to manage health conditions for everyone, everywhere.

Therapeutic Arsenal

The range of treatments and therapies available for managing and treating conditions.

Therapy Pathways

Specific treatment protocols and sequences, designed with the goal of achieving the best possible therapeutic outcomes for particular conditions and individual patients.

Value-Based Care

A healthcare delivery model in which providers are paid based on patient health outcomes.

Understanding treatment options

(Neuromuscular) Cellular Level Treatment

Treatments aimed at affecting and improving the function of specific cells in the body. In Rhyk's case, nerve and muscle cells.

Customizable Biostimulation

The ability to adjust targeted electrical stimulation to meet personalizable medical needs for therapeutic purposes.

Multimodal Treatment

Using more than one method of treatment to address a condition or illness, enhancing effectiveness by targeting different aspects of the condition simultaneously. It often results in better outcomes and can reduce the reliance on any single therapy.

Non-Invasive Treatment

Treatments that do not require entry into the body (such as surgery) and are generally considered safer and less traumatic.

Non-pharmaceutical treatment

Therapies, or strategies that do not involve the use of medications or drugs.

Patient Compliance/Adherence

The degree to which a patient correctly follows medical advice and treatment plans. This is an important factor to improve health outcomes.

Ensuring safety and compliance

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union and the European Economic Area.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO)

An independent, non-governmental international organization that develops standards to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products, services, and systems. Rhyk has achieved this certification 2023.

Medical Device Regulation (MDR)

European regulations ensuring the safety and performance of medical devices. Rhyk has achieved this certification in 2023, and is an MDR Certified Medical Device Class 2a.
