Pub. Date:
Heeding complaints from professionals in medicine, biomedical engineering, and biophysics that much of the literature concerning electrotherapy (or magnetotherapy) does not adequately address scientific issues or their links to applications, O'Clock (emeritus, electrical engineering, Minnesota State U. at Mankato) presents a work that he hopes will satisfy such criticisms. His secondary motivation in producing this book is to demonstrate the need for medicine to reach beyond its traditional chemical foundations in order to understand the importance of physics in relation to the human body. Following the introduction of fundamentals, he presents chapters discussing electrical properties and response characteristics of cells, tissues, and organs; electrotherapy and magnetotherapy comparisons; potential biological effects of subtle and not-so-subtle energy levels; primary design drivers of electrotherapeutic devices; simulation studies; electrotherapy clinical studies; and recent developments and trends.
