Physiotherapy device

 

(57) Abstract:

The invention relates to medical equipment, namely to physical therapy devices, and can be used to treat pathologies local hyperthermia (sciatica, bursitis, myositis). The device ensures uniform heating of any surface of the body, and provides a measured hyperthermia, which, in turn, will increase therapeutic efficacy. Physiotherapy device comprises a fabric cover, a stimulating element in the form of plates. The plate is made of a flexible electrically insulating heat-resistant, biologically inert material, such as silicone rubber. On the one hand stimulating element supported metal mesh from a biologically inert material. The grid is the electrode from the electrode through the tide is gated conductive wire. The wire connected to the electrical connector. In the middle of the stimulating element is placed the coil of the heating element and the winding of thermometer. The winding of the heating element and the winding thermometer made in the form of zigzag conductors placed at a distance of 0.1-0.2 mm from one another and separated by a flexible insulating provocame Wires pass through the tide. 3 Il.

The invention relates to medical equipment, namely physiotherapy devices, and can be used for treatment of numerous pathologies, where you need the use of local hyperthermia (sciatica, bursitis, myositis).

A device for physiotherapeutic procedures, which contains a reservoir for medicinal substances, heating elements, electrodes and a device for fixing [1].

Closest to the proposed physiotherapy device is a device that is attached to the patient's body containing a reservoir for medicinal substance made in the form of a hermetic bag with an inner insulating coating, and a pipe for discharge of air. On the surface of the reservoir, which is adjacent to the body, the ribs of elastic material and placed parallel to the longitudinal axis. The ribs are placed heating elements with temperature, between ribs with holes for administration of medicinal substances, and also placed the electrodes [2].

Known devices have several disadvantages that limit the effectiveness of the treatment, namely: panadeine sealing and holding fluid, the device cannot be put on an uneven part of the body (elbows, knee, spine), hence not provided uniform heating (in the middle of the hot, and from the sides of the cooler), no thermometer to measure the temperature may not provide hyperthermia dosed, and this device cannot be sterilized for use by another patient.

The basis of the invention the task by changing the design of physiotherapeutic device to ensure uniform heating of any body surface, and to provide a measured hyperthermia and its background to electrophoresis and electrical stimulation, which in turn will increase therapeutic efficacy.

This object is achieved in that in the physiotherapeutic device containing a heating element and the electrode, it is new that it further comprises a thermometer for measuring and controlling temperature, the case of absorbent fabric into which is inserted a stimulating element in the form of a plate made of flexible waterproof heat-resistant, biologically inert material, one side of which is deposited a metal mesh made of biologically inert mA is with the electrical connector, and in the middle of the incentive item posted by the winding of the heating element and the winding thermometer, made in the form of zigzag conductors placed at a distance of 0.1-0.2 mm from one another, separated by a flexible insulating strips and connected to the connector of the electrical wires passing through the tide.

The placement of the windings of the heating element and thermometer provides uniform on the entire surface temperature that can be measured and adjusted with an accuracy of 0.5oC. Stimulating element simultaneously performs heating, temperature measurement, electrophoresis and electro-stimulation. The flexibility of the device enables you to attach it to any part of the body. Due to the presence of the cover device, which is used once or sterilized, ensures the sterility of the surface of the body, which relates to the device. The performance of the electrode in the form of a grid provides a more uniform passage of the medicinal fluid through the surface of the body, which is much more effective in the treatment in comparison with the prototype, where these electrodes point.

In Fig. 1 shows a physiotherapeutic device, General view, Fig. 2 - pyrogenation is it fabric case 1, in which is inserted a stimulating element 2, which is a plate made of an electrically insulating flexible heat-resistant, biologically inert material, such as silicone rubber. On the one hand stimulating element 2 supported metal mesh 3 of biologically inert material, which is the electrode from which burst through 4 display the conductive wire 5 connected to the electric connector 6. In the middle of the stimulating element 2 is placed a coil of the heating element 7 and the winding of thermometer 8. The winding of the heating element 7 and the winding thermometer 8 is made in the form of zigzag conductors placed in two parallel planes, which are at a distance of 0.1 - 0.2 mm from one another, and separated by a flexible insulating spacers 9. The winding of the heating element 7 and the winding thermometer 8 is connected to the connector of the electric wires 5, which pass through the tide 4.

The claimed device can not only perform dosed hyperthermia, but also be used for electrophoresis and electro-stimulation with any standard device for electrophoresis and electro-stimulation.

I shall make it a stimulating element 2, through the connector 6 is connected to the standard device to perform physical therapy procedures, including hyperthermia. The device is applied to the sore spot, press and hold physiotherapy, with a different standard electrode placed on the selected body part. Temperature measurement is performed by thermometer, which is in analog or digital mode shows the value of the heating coil thermometer. Temperature control heating performed by changing the value of the current flowing through the winding of the heating element. Change current value is carried out in a known manner. In addition, the winding of the heating element may consist of several conductors, by adjusting the number of inclusions which provide a programmed heating.
