Dr. David Phillips is a medical inventor who founded ReBuilder Medical, http://www.rebuildermedical.com, a company that produces his latest invention: The ReBuilder. ReBuilder Medical created this device for patients wishing to reduce invasive pain and numbness caused by neuropathy.
The ReBuilder is an electronic treatment device that requires no extra equipment and is fast and easy to use. Patients begin treatment by turning it on, placing the electrodes into a warm water footbath, and then putting their feet into the bath. The ReBuilder begins by measuring the patient's resistance, impedance, and passive voltage levels in the extremities. This information determines the patient's mass and the ReBuilder uses this info to set its internal safety parameters. Then the device sends a healthy signal from one foot to the other. Because at any given moment, one foot is electrically negative and the other foot is electrically positive, the signal goes from one foot, to that ankle, to the calf, the thigh, and to the lower spine where it crosses and goes down the opposite leg to the foot. This signal matches the most common waveform of healthy peripheral nerves. When the initial signal reaches the opposite foot, it sends an echo-like response back to the electronic device. In a split second, The ReBuilder acquires enough data to recognize the patient’s waveform aberrations.
The ReBuilder can identify damage to peripheral nerves from analyzing the waveform shape in the same way a cardiologist examines waveforms produced from an EKG monitor to identify heart problems. The shape of the top of the waveform indicates the ability of the nerve to deliver a long lasting signal received by the brain, and abnormalities in the shape of the waveform on the way up indicate numbness. Abnormalities on the backside of the waveform indicate pain. ReBuilder Medical uses an internal microprocessor in its device as a safety measure that makes it easy to diagnose the nature of the problem.
The ReBuilder creates a compensating waveform after analyzing the returned waveform. Depending on its analysis of the automatic response, the ReBuilder Medical device will emit a waveform designed to either reduce or increase energy in that specific area. The process of sending out the signal, analyzing the returning signal, and creating a compensating signal to send back, takes approximately 7.83 seconds. Slowing down the treatment process to this time frame allows the nerve cells to re-polarize and prepare for the next signal. Since this medical device is able to detect precise waveforms, the body’s nerves are trained to transmit signals in the proper order. As a result, The ReBuilder acts similar to a pacemaker for the heart’s electrical signals.
