LOW INTENSITY DIRECT CURRENT (LIDC)

LOW INTENSITY (AMPERAGE) DIRECT CURRENT GENERATED BY THE SIS M250 MODEL


Direct current (i) illustrated by the straight red line that represents the constant intensity of charge carriers with time (t).




LIDC HAS MULTIPLE ESTABLISHED EFFECTS ON INFECTIONS

  • Inactivation of viral activity. Supporting research>

  • Viral damage and inhibition of infection. Supporting research>


  • Electrolysis (electro-chemical breaking) reactions that generate free chlorine from hypochlorous acid contained in neutrophils (white blood cells involved in infection and tissue regeneration). Supporting research>


  • Increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) inside bacterial cells produced in response to the LIDC stressor that overwhelms the microorganism. Supporting research>


  • Disruption of the integrity of protective bacterial membranes, including electroporation effects, increasing their permeability. Supporting research>


  • Reduction of the formation of the biofilms made by grouping bacteria. Supporting research>


  • Altering pH balance that affects bacterial biofilms. Supporting research>




MORE EFFECTS OF LIDC ON INFECTED CELLS

  • The constant direct current generated by the M250 creates parallel electric field lines between the SIS (+)positive and (-)negative electrodes. Naturally biologically produced and externally applied electric fields have strong 'instructional' effects on biological cells and molecules.

  • Cells have both internal and cell membrnae electrical properties including surface charge, conductivity and capacitance, and a resting electric field. The infection of a cell by a microorganism (bacteria, viruses) changes the cell membranes's electrical properties. Supporting research>



Parallel electric field lines between two electrodes


  • The electric field generated by the M250 between the SIS electrodes is expected to exert different effects on infected cells and their surrounding microenvironments and on non-infected cells.


SILVER IONTOPHORESIS

STAGE 1: SIS SILVER-NYLON CLOTH ELECTRODES PLACED ON THE BODY

  • One variant of the SIS electrode is made from a specialized nylon cloth ripstop material that is electro-plated (coated) with pure silver. Two SIS electrodes are positioned on the skin, on either side, or on the front and back, of the body or head, so that the target infection is aligned between them.

    The SIS electrodes are held onto the body with standard medical fixation tape.

STAGE 2: SIS MACHINE M250 MODEL ELECTRO-STIMULATOR AND MONITOR

  • The SIS machine delivers a high precision, extremely small Output Current to the SIS electrodes (billionths of an ampere of electric current).


  • Utilizing state of the art sensing technology, the SIS machine automatically regulates the target Output Current with environmental changes, including hydration, perspiration, millisecond-speed body movement, and with both body and ambient temperature changes.

    Electrode stimulation efficiency (ESE) smart technology—self-adaptive algorithms monitor, log and analyze electrode↔skin contact in real-time and statistically per session; and auto-adjust stimulation parameters and Output Current to ensure continuity and therapeutically sufficient stimulation during each treatment session.

    The user is provided by the device software with real-time audio and visual alerts to maintain correct electrode contact with the body.



STAGE 3: RELEASE OF SILVER CATIONS INTO THE BODY

  • The Output Current from the SIS machine causes a chemical oxidation process on the surface of the electrically (+)positive SIS electrode. This process results in the release of atoms of silver having a positive electric charge (Ag+ cations) from the electrode.



STAGE 4: SILVER CATIONS ACT ON THE INFECTED AREA

  • The silver cations (positive electrically charged) released from the (+)positive SIS electrode travel towards the (-)negative 'return' SIS electrode. The silver cations electrochemically bind to the membranes of bacteria, and to the fatty capsules of viruses, and have multiple, similtaneous effects on their surrounding microenvironments, effectively disabling them.
