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>




LIDC AND ELECTRIC FIELD EFFECTS ON INFECTED CELLS AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

  • The constant low intenstiy direct current (LIDC) generated by the M250 creates electrostatic fields between the SIS (+)positive and (-)negative electrodes along and around the internal tissue pathways of LIDC flow.

  • Cells themselves have both internal and plasma cell membrane electrical properties including a static surface electric charge and dielectric capacitance—holding energy as a polarized electric field. The infection of a cell by a virus changes the cell membrane electrical properties. The electrostatic fields generated by the LIDC from the M250 between the SIS electrodes thereby have different 'seperating' effects on infected cells than on non infected cells. Supporting research>

  • The LIDCs generated by the M250 also have strong signalling effects on many cell types including those of the immune system. They enhance macrophage microbial clearance functions—immune system white blood cells critical for innate immunity and the inflammatory response to infection. The LIDCs and electrostatic fields generated by the M250 also instruct the migration and positioning of macrophage and B and T type lymphocytes―adaptive immune system cells, within infected and damaged tissues.

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.
