Abstract:

THE DESIRED RESPONSE FOR THERAPEUTIC DEEP HEAT IN THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM IS NOT SIMPLE TEMPERATURE ELEVATION. RATHER, MEDICAL MICROWAVE RESEARCH CORP. PROPOSES A PHYSIOLOGICAL ENDPOINT FOR DETERMINATION OF THERAPEUTIC RESPONSE. THE THERAPEUTIC RESPONSE WILL BE MEASURED NONINVASIVELY WITH AN ELECTROMAGNETIC SENSOR WHICH WILL OPERATE WITH ANY SOURCE OF THERAPEUTIC DEEP HEAT SUCH AS ULTRASOUND OR DIATHERMY. PHASE I WILL USE THE LATTER. THE DEEP HEATING WILL BE SUPPLIED BY A PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED, PROPRIETARY, CONTRACTING APPLICATOR OPERATING AT 918 MHZ AT A MAXIMUM MUSCLE SAR OF 150-200 M W/G FOR 20 MINUTES IN NORMAL HUMAN VOLUNTEERS. SINCE THE PROPOSED NONINVASIVE SENSOR CAN BE RETROFITTED TO ANY FORM OF DEEP HEATING, IT IS APPLICABLE TO EXISTING AS WELL AS NEW EQUIPMENT FOR THERAPEUTIC DEEP HEATING.
