MEDICAL APPLICATIONS OF SHORTWAVE RADIO FREQUENCY
Therapeutic medical application of radio frequency (RF) energy at a carrier frequency between 13–27.12MHz is referred to as shortwave diathermy and can be divided into two general categories based on mode of delivery: continuous RF energy delivery and pulsed RF energy delivery. Continuous delivery of shortwave energy to a tissue leads to an increase in tissue temperature, and is used for the therapeutic delivery of deep heat. Delivery of pulsed RF energy to a tissue can allow for the dissipation of heat between pulses, providing therapeutic effects in the absence of substantial tissue temperature elevation, a therapy first developed to diminish negative complications that can occur with tissue heating, while conserving other therapeutic benefits of this type of application. While tissue heating with pulsed RF energy is deemed to be insignificant, new research suggests that there is a thermal component to pulsed RF energy which may offer significant therapeutic effects on soft tissues. Pulsed RF energy has a wide range of therapeutic uses, is well tolerated due to the non-invasive nature of application, and serves as an effective adjunctive treatment for many conditions. Non thermal therapeutic uses of pulsed radio frequency are currently being used to treat pain and edema, chronic wounds, and bone repair.
Pulsed radio frequency electromagnetic field therapy (PRFE), or pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy has a long history in treating medical conditions. In 1947 the Federal Communications Commission assigned three frequencies at the short end of the RF band for medical use (40.68 MHz, 13.56 MHz and 27.12 MHz). The frequency of 27.12 MHz is the most widely used in clinical practice. The first PRFE device, the Diapulse (Diapulse Corporation, NY) was commercially available in the 1950’s, and was followed by other commercially available machines. PRFE is a non-invasive therapy that delivers electromagnetic energy into soft tissue generating an electric field which is thought to mediate the therapeutic effects. Our range of pulsed radio frequency electromagnetic energy devices operate in the shortwave form of 27.12Mhz. Other frequencies have also been considered in the patent.
