  • Patent number: 4197851
    Abstract: Apparatus for emitting high frequency electromagnetic waves comprises a low-voltage power supply, an emitter and an antenna comprising at least one conductor on a thin flexible insulating support and including a length of conductive material formed into a pattern and having interconnected ends in the region of which the conductor is connected to the output of the emitter by a single connector. This not only enables the whole antenna to be flexible so that it can be applied to areas difficult of access, e.g. parts of the human body and even be rolled into a tube for insertion in a body cavity, or wrapped around a limb, for example, but the emitter operates at a voltage of less than 50 volts, the antenna is athermic and the apparatus is significantly small. This is in contradistraction to the high voltage, bulky equipment hitherto used for therapeutic treatment of the body of a patient, both human and animal.
