Paper Abstract

The object of this study was to show the potential use of tissue electrical impedance as a feedback parameter for the control of therapeutic Radio Frequency (R.F.) energy. Radio Frequency energy is a form of electromagnetic energy with an usable frequency range between 200KHZ and 2MHZ. The low frequency limit is determined by the physiological stimulation of muscle, and the high frequency is limited by the physics of the delivery system.
