This invention relates to an apparatus for the emission of a combined
flow of electrons and electromagnetic radiations.
The apparatus of this invention has a specific application in the
medical sector for the therapeutic treatment of stimulation and revitalization
of living cells and in particular human cells.
In fact, it is known that when a continuous flow of electrons is
directed against a human body, a current forms which passes, more or less completely,
through the body, according to a complicated exchange operation between the atoms
that make up the cells, causing in this way an energy exchange between the cells
and the generation in their inside of electrochemical phenomena such as to create
oxygenation and revitalization conditions.
It is also known that, because of their structure, living cells are
animated by vibrations produced by the continuous action of external electromagnetic
radiations (cosmic rays). When a cell, thanks to the conformation of its nucleus,
and in particular to the precise length and structure of its filament, which is
different from cell to cell, even of the same type, is excited by a vibratory
action produced by the electromagnetic radiations, starts vibrating and resonating
with an own specific frequency.
Namely, as a consequence of its shape and the size of its filament,
each cell vibrates according to an own wavelength. It ensues from this that all
the cells that form an organ or a body as a whole, vibrate according to different
wavelengths, even though their magnitude order differs only to a minimum extent
and comprises rather limited frequency bands.
The cells, following lasting intensity variations of the above external
electromagnetic radiations, undergo vibratory alterations and modifications of
the intracellular energy system, and consequently they loose their original oscillatory
Due to this effect, the cells loose their functional capacity, reducing
the intensity and the coordination of the metabolic processes. The cells that are
in such state are usually called "depressed cells".
However, based on studies and researches carried out on said cell
behaviour, it is possible to regenerate the "depressed" cells by exciting them
with a flow of large spectrum artificial electromagnetic radiations, such as to
comprise the frequencies of all the cells of the human body.
With reference to humans, it can be assumed that many of the conditions
of psycophysical imbalance, such as asthenia, fatigue, depression, etc., may arise
from imbalances of the cellular biolectric system, caused either by variations
of the electromagnetic intensity which humans are usually submitted to in their
environment, or by oxygenation deficit in the inside of the cells.
It is known that said functional anomalies of the human cells can
be overcome by means of a treatment with a combined flow of electrons and electromagnetic
radiations, as living cells are characterized in that they always tend to resyntonize
on their original resonances.
GB-A-2 181 059 discloses an electrical medical instrument for increasing
the metabolic activity of desired cells by inducing electrical current flow through
the cells to be treated. The disclosed instrument comprises a source of direct
electrical energy, a pair of output terminals connected to a pair of electrodes
which are adapted to be placed in contact with healty tissue opposite one another
across damaged tissue, and means for generating from the energy source a voltage
wave and impressing it across the output terminals.
SU-A-1 183 110 - Database WPI, Section Ch, week 8616 - Derwent Publications,
discloses a depression treatment by polarising brain with direct current. The therapy
involves polarisation of the structure of the brain by direct current by placing
two pairs of electrodes with polar voltage in positions diametrically opposed on
the surface of the skin on the head.
Apparatuses are known that allow to emit combined electronic and
electromagnetic currents, utilizable for the aforementioned treatment. Such apparatuses
comprise basically an electric circuit formed by an electric or electronic device,
such as for instance, a transformer which, fed by alternated current from the
mains, can supply at the outlet a positive or negative direct current of high voltage
and very low intensity, which is conveyed to a conductor with pointed ends. Such
pointed ends are directed towards the concerned part of the body which is therefore
swept over by the bundles of electronic and electromagnetic radiations coming from
However, these apparatuses have some drawbacks which reduce their
effectiveness, as will be precised in the following.
A first serious drawback ensues from the fact that, as the direct
current available from the transformer has one only polarity, negative or positive,
the radiation flow emitted by the partly pointed ends of the conductor, disperses,
tending to circulate at the epidermic level and groundwards, flowing in this way
outside the body part instead of penetrating in depth, as the system formed by
the pointed ends of the conductor and the patient's body has a certain electric
A further serious drawback is due to the fact that the pointed ends
of the conductor allow to have rather limited radiation flow capacities and therefore
such apparatuses provide very low performances.
Object of this invention is to overcome the aforementioned drawbacks.
In its more general aspects, this invention allows to achieve this
and further objects thanks to an apparatus which comprises two electric circuits,
provided each with an electric or electronic device, such as for instance a transformer
with rectifying diodes, capable of providing at the outlet a direct current of
polarity opposite from one another, high voltage (4000-80,000 V) and very low intensity
The electric or electronic devices of the two electric circuits supply
direct currents of opposite polarity, one positive (+) and one negative (-), to
two plate-like conductors equipped with at least a bundle of carbon fibres which
act as pointed ends.
The subject matter of the present invention is, therefore, an apparatus
for the emission of a combined flow of electrons and electromagnetic radiations
fed by an alternating current distribution, comprising two electric circuits having
opposite polarity, one circuit having a positive polarity (+) and the other circuit
having a negative polarity (-), each electric circuit comprising an electric or
electronic device transforming the alternating current into direct current and
delivering a direct current having a voltage comprised between 4,000 and 80,000
V and an intensity comprised between 0.05 and 0.5 mA, and a plate-like end conductor
connected to each outlet of said electric or electronic device and provided with
at least one bundle of pointed conductors.
Preferred embodiments of the invention are set out in dependent claims
2 to 9.
A further subject matter of the present invention is the above apparatus
for use in therapeutic/medical treatment for activating the cellular bioelectric
system and in a process of regeneration and revitalization of depressed cells
of parts of a body as set out in claims 10 and 11.
The apparatus of this invention allows to realize a combined flow
of electrons and of electromagnetic radiations, said flow being all the more consistent
and better distributed the higher is the number of bundles provided.
The arrangement of the plates with the carbon fibre bundles one in
front of the other allows to obtain a strong circulation of combined radiations
from plate (-) to plate (+). If a part or the whole body of a patient kept insulated
from the ground is interposed between said plates, said radiations pass through
him, reaching also the innermost organs.
The characteristics of the apparatus of this invention will be better
understood from the following detailed description, wherein reference is made to
Fig. 1 which shows the diagram of a preferred embodiment, supplied by ways of non
limitative example of said apparatus.
With reference to the aforementioned Fig. 1, the apparatus of this
invention comprises two electric circuits (2, 2'), fed by a same network of alternated
current (for instance, 220 V a.c.) through a tap (3), a plug (5) and a switch (1).
Each electric circuit (2, 2') comprises an electric or electronic
device (7, 7'), such as for instance a transformer with rectifying diodes, which
can supply each at the outlet a direct current of opposite polarity relatively
to one another, high voltage and very low intensity.
In particular, said electric or electronic devices supply at the
outlets (8, 8') direct currents with a voltage of 4000-80,000 V and an intensity
of 0.05-0.5 mA, one of which has a (+) polarity in device (7) and the other one
a (-) polarity in device (7').
The above outlets are respectively connected to two plate-like conductors
(9, 9'). Each plate (9, 9') is provided with one or more carbon fibre bundles (11,
11') (three in Fig. 1), which act as pointed conductors. When these plate-like
conductors (9, 9') are positioned and approached one in face of the other, a circulation
of electronic and large range electromagnetic radiations is obtained in the direction
of arrow F from pole (-) to pole (+). If a part of a body (15) (or the whole body),
insulated from the ground by means of a dielectric element (13), is placed between
said plate-like conductors (9, 9'), said part is passed through by said radiations,
concerning in this way all the cells that are present along the path of said radiations,
even in depth, which cells, as a consequence, are regenerated and revitalized.
The plate-like conductors (9, 9') are made from conductive materials,
such as copper, aluminium, etc.
The plate-like conductors (9, 9') may have any shape, such as square,
rectangular, triangular, polygonal or circular. The surface of the plate-like conductors
(9, 9') is not critical and depends on the surface of the body to be submitted
to the radiations.
The number of carbon fibre bundles (11, 11') on each plate-like conductor
(9, 9') may range from 1 to 100 and more, based on the surface of the plate-like
conductor (9, 9'). Each carbon fibre bundle (11, 11') may have a surface of its
cross-section comprised between 0.001 and 10 mm2, preferably between
0.1 and 2 mm2, and is formed by a number of carbon fibres comprised
between 50 and 10,000.
The dielectric element (13) may be a chair, an arm-chair or a bed
with feet from insulating plastic material. The plate-like conductors (9, 9')
with the carbon fibre bundles (11, 11') have generally the shape of mobile brushes,
supported by articulated or flexible arms, to make their application to the various
parts of the human body easier, placing them near the body and not in touch with
The use of carbon fibres allows also to eliminate and to prevent
possible electrostatic shocks.
The apparatus of this invention is characterized also by the absence
of harmful stimulations and by a complete analgesia, as it activates the cellular
bioelectric system without contraindications, indepentently on the clinical conditions
of the patient when he is submitted to the action of the apparatus.
The cells that at the time of the application of the radiations are
already in balanced conditions, i.e. not "depressed", are not electrically modified,
but remain in their ideal balanced conditions.
While this invention has been described with reference to a specific
realization, many changes may be obviously made by those skilled in the art, in
the light of the above description.
