|Experimental: Applications of shortwave diathermy||
Other: Shortwave therapy
Will be conducted in four stages, on different days: i) lower limb in extension and application of 180° for 20 min, ii) Lower limb knee flexion of 90° and application for 20 min; iii) lower limb extension in 180° without application iv) lower limb knee flexion of 90° without application.
|Experimental: Applications of microwave diathermy||
Other: Microwave therapy
Will be held in two stages, on different days: i) lower limb in extension with angle of 180° and application for 20 min, ii) lower limb in extension of 180° without application.
- Cutaneous temperature changes after short wave diathermy and microwave [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The skin temperature data will be acquired by a digital infrared thermographer at a distance of 1,5 m litter. 3 thermographic images will be collected over the application of diathermy at times 0, 10 and 20 min. For this, after the initial 10 min, the electrodes will be quickly removed from contact with the skin surface, so it can also be observed at room temperature under the electrode. Completed the 20 min of application will be also evaluated the temperature effect on residual time 10 and 20 min after application, where the individual remained at rest in the same position.
- Change in conduction velocity blood [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Data from the femoral artery blood flow will be collected through the Doppler Portable Ultrasound wave continues. Data will be collected after 20 minutes of acclimatization, immediately after application of shortwave diathermy and immediately after the 20 minutes of time resudual application.
