Physical therapy has an important role in public health. Millions of US dollars are spent every year for physical therapy to help people recover from injuries, help the elderly in chronical pain and help correct muscle growth and posture for children. Medical devices for electrotherapy, are high cost, complex and need a lot of education to use. To receive physical therapy people must go to specialised institutions, which cost time and money. The goal of this project and the final realisation, is to make a universal, safe, low cost, easy to operate, powerful device for everybody , for any place.
Targeted population: People with muscle, joints and bone injuries, elders, children, athletes, therapist, military, home applications, terrain work for paramedics, climbers, truck drivers, tourists, spa centers, therapy on the space stations in the orbit, anywhere.
This construction is based on 20 years of practical experience in the field of medicine and electronics:
-The smallest multitherapy device in the world, 5.5x4.7x2.2 inch, 0.6kg weight
-Powered with only 4xAA batteries,with Alkaline, Lithium, NiZn rechargeable, Solar or external 6VDC power supply, safe
-Versatile multitherapy : Interferent current, Analgetic Current, Galvanic current, Laser biostimulation, -Muscle stimulation, Medium frequency therapy, Electrophoresis, Acupuncture with Laser beams and Electroacupuncture, Acupuncture point finder, Battery test, Laser power meter, Vibrational therapy, Light therapy with red and infrared waves.
-Can deliver 3 therapies at the same time,
-Large Illuminated Digital Display
-During work, charge partially batteries, Alkaline and rechargeable NiZn
-Easy to manipulate, easy to learn
-Make market wide applicable small and cheap device for everybody, home, hospitals, military, sport, making it accessible for all
-Improve quality of life for older people, reduce pain and inflammations

I was inspired with vintage Tektronix scopes.
Jim Williams sums that spirit when he speaks of the Tek 535 era:
"The 535's engineering concepts and production execution were a bumpless combination of interdisciplinary technology, inspired design, attention to detail, aesthetics, and usability. It combined solid knowledge of fundamentals, unbounded thinking, and methodical discipline to produce a superior result. The thing just radiated intellectual honesty."
