The abstract, entitled "Increased gene expression incultured human dermal fibroblasts in response to a pulsed radio frequencyelectromagnetic field and implications in chronic wounds," received thehighest score in the Laboratory Research category. Dr. Moffett will acceptthe award at the SAWC annual meeting in San Diego, California, on April 25,2008.
Provant delivers cell proliferation induction(R) (CPI(R)) therapy based onRegenesis' proprietary pulsed radio frequency energy (PRFE) core technologyplatform. PRFE uses an optimized radiofrequency signal to stimulate dormantcells, causing them to replicate and to produce natural growth factors andother gene expression products, which facilitate reduction of the pain andedema associated with post-operative wound healing in soft tissues. Webelieve Provant is effective, economical, and easy-to-use.
In addition to the top science award from SAWC, Richard Isenberg, M.D.,Vice President of Clinical and Regulatory Affairs, will present a paperentitled "Pulsed Radio Frequency Energy Therapy in Elderly Patients with StageIII and IV Pressure Ulcers in Long-Term Care Settings" on Saturday, April 25,2008.
