I looked at the website, and while they do have some cool pictures of a "tripole," I have to be a bit skeptical.
I wonder if there has ever been a study done that shows people have nicer skin in areas where their cellphones are stored and used? If the frequency used happens to be in one of the cell bands, then there should be a lot of people walking around with beautiful ears, hips, and thighs.
There is at least one legitimate use for RF therapy other than x-rays for cancer treatment. Melanie had been suffering with acid reflux for many years, and back around 2003, she underwent a treatment called a Stretta® Procedure. It was a relatively new treatment at the time.
With it, a probe with retractable RF pin probes is inserted in the esophagus, into the region of the lower esophageal sphincter (just above the stomach opening. RF energy (I asked the doc, and he wasn't sure of the frequency) is blasted into the muscle with the result being that over a few months time the collagen in the area shrinks in reaction to the local heating.
This website has a animation of the procedure http://www.reflux1.com/video/LibraryStr ... mation.swf
It worked for a couple years, but a hernia at the top of the stomach lining was still causing a problem, and limited the effectiveness of the Stretta, so she ultimately underwent a procedure where the surgeon wraps the top of the stomach around the lower esophageal sphincter to physically reduce its diameter so that the muscle can close the opening. Incomplete closure is what allows the acid reflux to occur.
So far, so good. I only went into the gory details in case someone reading suffers from GERD or LPR (which was Melanie's malady) and is desperately seeking treatment.
