Rejuvenating device for mucosal tissue using electromagnetic and rf therapy
A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11684794B2) describes a device and system for rejuvenating mucosal tissue. The device includes a pulsed electromagnetic frequency generator, a radiofrequency (RF) tissue diathermy device, and a plurality of electrodes. The device is designed to apply pulsed electromagnetic field therapy and heat to specific regions of mucosal tissue.
The system is configured to maintain different temperature ranges in different portions of the mucosal tissue. It includes a processor that communicates with temperature sensors to measure and control the temperature. The temperature sensors can be thermistors, thermocouples, or a combination of both. The system also has the capability to control the RF output and pulsed electromagnetic frequency generator to maintain a temperature profile in predetermined regions outside the device.
The device and system can heat the mucosal tissue to a temperature range between 30 degrees Celsius and 80 degrees Celsius. The pulsed electromagnetic frequency generator can produce pulses with a duration between 3 ms and 1000 ms and a frequency between 1 Hz and 50 Hz. The pulsed electromagnetic power is configured to stimulate collagen production and induce angiogenesis.
The integrated system includes at least two electrodes that are placed on the mucosal tissue. An electromagnetic field generator generates electromagnetic field pulses and applies them to the tissue. A control system manages the electromagnetic field generator and the application of heat by the electrodes. The electrodes can provide RF pulses to the tissue and heat it to the predetermined temperature range.
The system can be used to increase rejuvenation of mucosal tissue in various regions of the body, including the vagina. It can store temperature profiles in a database and includes a processor that communicates with temperature sensors and the database. The system can also include a cooling mechanism to cool the tissue.
Overall, this patent describes a device and system that combines pulsed electromagnetic field therapy and tissue diathermy to rejuvenate mucosal tissue. The system allows for precise temperature control and can be used in various regions of the body.
