                    ELECTRIC FIELD TO REDUCE PAIN"

                            by Judy Wall

     This patent was granted December 26, 1989 to Elizabeth A.
Rauscher and William L. Van Bise, both of San Leandro
California; assignee MegTech Laboratories, Inc., Reno, Nevada.

     Michael Hutchinson's Megabrain Report, Vol. 1, #4, published
a few  years ago, gives this background information on the

     "Elizabeth Rauscher and Bill Van Bise are two of the leading
investigators of the effects of electromagnetism on biological
systems. They are currently engaged in clinical tests of a
device they have developed that uses pulsed electromagnetic
signals at specific frequency combinations for the treatment of
cardiac problems and pain.

     "Elizabeth Rauscher earned her B.A. in physics and
chemistry, a Masters in nuclear engineering and a Ph.D. in
nuclear science from Berkeley. She spent 19 years with Lawrence
Berkeley Laboratory, three of them in a theoretical physics
group at Lawrence Livermore Labs. She has served as a consultant
with SRI International, NASA, and the Navy. For many years she
has had a special interest in quantum electronics, the
biological effects of electromagnetics, and natural sources of
low-frequency, long wavelength magnetic field emissions from the
earth. She has published influential papers in nuclear physics,
astrophysics, and fusion research. She is presently engaged
full time with the medical research project that involves the
use of electromagnetic frequencies.

     "Bill Van Bise is an electrical engineer who served as
consultant to broadcast companies throughout the U.S. He was
instructor at the University of Oregon Health Sciences
University Medical School. During the 1970s he was a consultant
to the Oregon State Health division Radiation Section. He teamed
up with Elizabeth Rauscher in 1984 when they began their current
research and development in the area of electromagnetism and
biological systems."

     The ABSTRACT for the invention reads:

     "The invention incorporates the discovery of new principles
which utilize magnetic and electric fields generated by time
varying square wave currents of precise repetition, with shape
and magnitude to move through coils and cutaneously applied
conductive electrodes in order to stimulate the nervous system
and reduce pain in humans. Timer means, adjustment means, and
means to deliver current to the coils and conductive electrodes
are described, as well as a theoretical model of the process.
The invention incorporates the concept of two cyclic expanding
and collapsing magnetic fields which generate precise wave
conjunction with each other to create a beat frequency which in
turn causes the ion flow in the nervous system of the human body
to be efficiently moved along the nerve path where the locus of
the pain exists to thereby reduce the pain. The wave forms are
created either in one or more coils, one or more pairs of
electrodes, or a combination of the two."

     The patent is long, 30 pages, 7 in the introduction with
diagrams, the rest divided into about equal parts of discussion,
mathematical equations, and practical application.

     The discussion presents the most complete summary in single
article of the interaction of biological materials and
electromagnetic fields that I have seen. These are the
highlights of the presentation:

     "The inventors have discovered that the beginning of the
normal cardiac cycle and response to pain cycle originates in
the mid-brain and the hypothalamus with excitation of the
Purkinje cells and is oscillatorily propagated to the heart or
source of pain, respectively."

     In the first embodiment of the invention, the authors employ
an external magnetic field generating device that produces an
expanding and collapsing magnetic field in the form of a square
wave, frequency from 7.15 to 7.78 Hertz. This magnetic square
wave triggers the PQRSTU wave form characteristic of an
electrocardiogram. It is not necessary to mimic the wave.

     In the second embodiment, two frequencies of magnetic field
impulses are generated, differing by a factor of ten,
specifically 7.6 and 76 Hertz. The frequencies are mixed to
counteract pain.

     "This invention incorporates the discovery of new principles
involving both linear and non-linear properties of biologic
material and inorganic semiconduction systems. By generating
certain energies at a distance from, as well as in the proximity
of, these materials or systems and at the same time optimally
detecting their changes and emissions, unique new
characteristics can be elicited and observed. Biologic as well
as inorganic systems, when excited by external energies of
specific, mixed, or varying in a narrow range of frequencies,
polarizations, wave forms and intensities, will have their own
characteristics changed and in turn will change the
characteristic of the energies impinging upon the system. Thus
a characteristic transmitted energy impinging upon or travelling
through a given self-resonant system will stimulate the system to
respond with a transmission of its own which is different from
its transmission characteristic when undisturbed by the impinging
energy. These two separate characteristic energies will interact
synergistically producing not only greater effects at the
disturbed local material sites, but also will produce non-local
effects at other sites. The interaction of emitted energies from
artificial sources and biological systems, if both are
characteristically self resonant at some compatible fundamental
or harmonic frequency, results in the formation of an
informational channel between the source and the system. The
channel frequency is able to modulate the interacting systems
with diode-like forward-reverse voltage fluctuation. The channel
is therefore a system frequency modulator."

     The patent goes on to discuss the informational channel
bandwidths, which are narrow with high "Q"s. There are at least
three informational channels for humans. The cardiovascular
system has a band width of approximately 30.4 Hertz with a
frequency swing of plus of minus 15.2  Hertz, and the Bessel null
at about 7.6 Hertz. The nervous system has an informational band
width of 304 Hertz with frequency swing plus or minus 152 Hertz,
first Bessel component at 23 Hertz "which represents a mix of 7.6
and 76 Hertz generated signals." The brain informational channel
band width is 3040 Hertz with frequency swing plus or minus 1520
Hertz, "and a more complex mix of frequencies peaking between 70
and 123 Hertz."

     The informational channel bandwidths of the above three
systems increases by a factor of ten. "It is a well known
engineering fact that in order for signals of given frequencies
to be faithfully detected and reproduced that the receiving
channel must have a band width at least ten times the frequency
of the highest emitted frequency which must be processed...Narrow
band FM is therefore the logical choice which Nature evidently

     "...the present invention relates to non invasive devices
which emit magnetic pulses that can penetrate through and
interact with biological materials and potentially all systems
of the body in what is known as the ELF/VLF frequency range.
These devices operate at low intensities, and except for the
noted exceptions, without direct contact with the material
affected. Through this effect, the present invention can enhance
the ability of biologic systems toward a state of improved
function in many areas of organic dysfunction."

     Later in the patent, it is stated, "The Soliton model of
biological signalling becomes useful in describing the various
conditions of bioelectromagnetic processing...Disruption or
enhancement occurs because external signals transduced by the
nonlinearities of the tissue form into Soliton-like waves. The
waves, then, can modify and recohere processes which are too
dispersive and hence reinforce normal neuronal or other signal
paths. On the other hand, these waves, at other frequencies,
wave forms, and intensities can increase dispersion and hence
introduce disruption and biological damage in the system."

     There are 13 diagrams in this patent. The schematics
included were sort of "generic" in that they did not have
specific numerical values assigned to the components. I asked
Chuck Allen of Tampa Bay Mensa if he could remedy this situation
which he did very nicely in the two included diagrams. Note,
the numbers in parentheses refer to the numbers on the original

     By the way, Chuck tells me that there is no transmitter in
this schematic; the desired effect is achieved by close
proximity magnetic induction between the subject and apparatus.
