The valve is biased in a closed position by resilient spring arms. Each spring arm has a fixed end coupled to the housing and a free end that contacts a rounded or inclined surface of the valve in a location that is offset from a centerline of movement. As the valve moves to an open position, the spring arms flex with the free ends moving apart. When the spring arms straighten and the free ends move closer to each other, the valve is moved to the closed position. The dispenser can be manipulated by a hand or by a massager. A massager imparts vibrations to the valve by way of the housing and the spring arm. The dispenser can be used to work the fluid into an object such as human skin.

    Abstract: Hair growth therapy is provided by a device capable of delivering multiple hair growth therapies to a user, either individually or in combination. The device includes multiple optical sources providing an array of different optical stimulation signals, while also having vibration capabilities to provide physical stimulation. The multiple optical stimulation therapies include high powered lasers, and light emitting diodes (LEDs) of different wavelengths. Through the use of these multiple light sources, stimulation of hair follicles is provided at the root, along the upper portion, and throughout the base, each promoting healthy hair growth. In addition, the vibration therapies provide a messaging affect, thus further stimulating blood flow in the scalp and helping to support healthy hair growth.

  • Publication number: 20090247913
    Abstract: A Personal Care Vaporizing Device is disclosed. The device has a central base unit including a large removable liquid reservoir and a handheld skin massage/exfoliating device. The handheld assembly can selectively emit vapor directly to the skin surface. Unlike the prior devices in the field, the present invention allows the user to selectively dispense either cool or warm vapor. The liquid reservoir is designed to accept skin care additives in addition to simple water for generating the vapor. The device has at least three operational modes: vapor only, massage head brush oscillation/massage motion only, and both vapor and oscillation/massage. Power for the device is available from a variety of sources, including internal batteries and/or external power supply.

  • Publication number: 20080312563
    Abstract: A hydrotherapy system uses a plurality of water sources, each of which produces water at a fixed temperature. The water from the fixed temperature sources can be mixed to form several mixed water streams, each with a predetermined temperature, by an array of computer-controlled on-off solenoid valves. Solenoid valves can also be used to apply the mixed water streams with different flow rates selectively to different body zones. The solenoids are controlled via sequences that can be created and maintained with an intuitive graphical user interface.
