Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9815252A1] The invention is about a massage equipment which will alleviate or eliminate acute and chronic muscle tensions as well as pains and aches by the use of infrasonic sound generated as a result of modulating and sweeping of the output of the piezo transducers or similar ones. The invention is based on several scientific researches and on their results. The modulated sound includes an infrasonic component of 1 to 16 Hz and other low frequencies as well as some higher frequencies. The output is analyzed and the got frequencies graphed in the enclosed pictures (4 and 5). This new approach enables this new type of massage equipment utilising sound vibrations. This equipment is versatile, small in size and thus enables the massage treatment to be independent of time, place, body position and of assisting personnel. Due to these properties, the equipment is also ideal for self care. The heat elements are to help to focus the massaging to the right place, the part in need of the treatment. The patent claims apply to the massage equipment (producing modulated sound) as a whole or as in parts.
