Before treatment even begins, when ReBuilder® is first turned on, it goes through a sophisticated internal start-up procedure to:
- Calibrate itself to standards traceable to the National Bureau of Standards.
- Record the patient’s base line, fine tune its output for safety and monitor the patient for changes, sets time limits between the therapeutic impulses.
In order to do this, ReBuilder®:
Analyzes and calculates:
- Percentage of body fat
- Percentage of water
- Electrical resistance
- Resting voltage potential
- Electrical capacitance
- Limits current flow
- Adjusts for optimal frequency (7.83, +/- 10%)
- Calibrates patient operated intensity knob
These things are accomplished via the first of three parallel microprocessors, an internal voltmeter, frequency counter, pulse width oscilloscope, and software similar to that developed for the consumer bathroom “smart” scale.
As an analogy, consider how the body manages an “itch”. The body sends a signal to the brain as to the existence of the need for friction on a specific location and its location. It increases the intensity of the desire to scratch it. Once the response is begun, it monitors the pressure and duration applied vs. the stored parameters of what is needed. Once the proper need has been fulfilled it communicates to stop scratching in order to eliminate the pleasure from turning to pain, and perhaps creating an abrasion that could lead to an infection.
Similarly, the ReBuilder® uses biofeedback in its initial start-up sequence to determine the patient’s initial situation, and then monitors those parameters during the 30-minute treatment and makes adjustments in real-time for the best and safest clinical outcome.
