Potentialities Of Up-to-date Prospective Medical Equipment (Part 1)
The quest for selective resonance frequencies with a simultaneous substantial decrease in output energy variables of the affecting factor has enabled to produce a new class of diagnosis apparatus which has come to meet the requirements for at least energy-information action.
The beginning was marked by the introduction laser medicine methods into clinical practice using low-energy laser radiation. The earliest generator of this physical factor was a helium-neon laser but its technical facilities did not make it possible to produce output radiation power over 25 mW. Because the principal methods were distant the power flux density on the surface exposed to radiation corresponded to 0.3-10 mW/cm2. Initially the pillars of Russian medicine were sceptical about this class of apparatus because of its low energy power. However, ample factual material about an adequately high efficiency resulting from the effect of low-energy laser radiation made them recognize this factor as effective, anyway, now the methods of laser medicine are widely used in clinical practice. Yet, the employed energy variables and different frequencies of radiation modulation have not so far met all the requirements of information – wave influence. Nevertheless, the prospects for the use of electromagnetic radiation in an optical band, especially laser radiation are promising enough. In the frames of the mechanism of information influence on a bioobject the optical band has been assigned a special part. It has already been noted that cell populations are effective storage elements with an active mechanism of storing photons with a wavelength of 250 to 900 nm and that the efficiency of the storing resonator is very high. And this is a peculiar energy „pumping‟ of major information biopolymers and it has a direct system-organizing influence on a bioobject.
The next stage in resonance medicine with low energy variables of influence was theoretical substantiation and experimental and clinical research into the interaction between the bioobject and extremely high frequency electromagnetic radiation (a frequency band of 30-300 GHz, a wavelength of 1-10 mm) – EHF-radiation with bioobject energy exposure (a power flux density) of 0.01-100 mW/cm2. Resonance frequencies with a wavelength of 5.6 and 7.1 mm were determined and grounds were substantiated for the use of a large number of analogs of technical devices (EHFdevices like Yav-1) in the case of one or another pathology present. However, counting only on the sharp resonance character of influence of one frequency (wavelength) on a bioobject and comparatively high power flux density (not less than 10 mV/cm2) of EHF-radiation still do not meet the essential requirements of information medicine and the principle of information-wave influence. This has become a spur to further quest for ways of development and improvement of the apparatus and methods of EHF-influence.
The adoption of oriental methods of reflexotherapy made researchers and practical workers consider the possibility of replacing a metal needle or an absinth cigar as a factor of influence, by electric current and electromagnetic radiation. Anyway, some questions have arisen as to probable and required variables of these influencing factors. On this basis an entire field of electropuncture diagnosis has come into being using different methods (Foll, Nakatany, Nechushkin) which are based on the measurements of skin electroconductivity in bioactive points (BAP). Presently there is no experimental data available about an actual effective substrate of BAP. The most objective substantiation of BAP morphology is P.P. Garyaev‟s conception of intercellular reticulum as a specific signal system of the human body, including BAP. Intercellular reticulum or intercellular substance can play the role of a peculiar supramolecular analog of neuron networks which ensures a directed introduction of information into certain cellular and tissue associates including „matrices of acupuncture competence‟.
On the basis of electropuncture diagnosis and the dynamics of its indices in the course of EHF-action the output energy variables of radiation were substantially reduced with a maximum value of 0.1 mW and new generators with a wide-band frequency (wavelength) of radiation were developed (devices of the series Electronica, EHF - 52-62 GHz and devices of the series Kovert –53-78 GHz). The ones with a still wider band are devices Porog-1 (30-300 GHz) and Minitag (30-62.5 GHz) with a superminimum output power which with a contact-based technique, provides a power flux density of about 10-17 W/cm2. This made it possible to optimize energy variables in terms of the information action requirements, however the question of action synchronization remains unsolved.
The development of electropuncture methods in terms of energy information action on man has led to the making of apparatus complexes with feedback proceeding from a change in BAP electric status. These are devices Ellada-4, Prognos-6, Prognos-7, Prognos-8, Vika-3 and devices Imedis-Foll, Imedis-BPT. However, without discussing the diagnostic importance of methods of influence it should be noted that electropuncture requires an extremely high proficiency of the operator who is supposed to embrace the functions of the entire diagnosis service, to be a strategist in picking out an action and a subtle tactician in dynamic control. More simple methods, also based on changing electric skin potentials, with twin contact electrodes for the palm surfaces of hands and sole surfaces of feet, are methods of bioresonance therapy with Bikom and Betta-3 devices involved. Despite a number of major differences on a constructive and method plane among the above-mentioned methods of influence based on feedback the recorder physical factor affecting a bioobject is an electric potential or to put it more plainly – electric current. A continuous diversity of electromagnetic phenomena in the human body – biological electromagnetic continuum – is interrelated with vital function processes, and the electric status of the integument and BAP reflects this diversity. By changing this status with the help of the above-mentioned apparatus methods one can promote the regulation of the internal control system. Anyway, the unequivocal assertion about a bioresonance effect and synchronization with the appropriate biorhythms is rather problematical.
