BRIEF PRESENTATION OF THE DEVICE TO BE DEVELOPED
The design of the chair creates a half-sitting, half-lying position of the body enclosed under a gas-proof cover; thus the human body takes a safe and comfortable bath in carbon dioxide approximately up to one’s chest. This way, the newly developed, safe capsule intends to provide the positive effect of the already known CO2 dry bath. CO2 has a salutary effect by diffusing through the human skin. Flushing, a feeling of warmth, pleasant sleepiness and calmness are typical following the bath.
An electronic system equipped with a sensor ensures the maintenance of a permanent gas level in the capsule. In addition to the well-known effect of the gas, the experience of recreation is provided by built-in light therapy and an audio system with a choice of music and recordings. As a result of the development, further services may also be attached to the device.
Various measurements document the efficiency of the bath and also facilitate administration, e.g. checking of blood pressure and pulse etc. The documented and stored data may also become a part of a database and knowledge centre (in compliance with the relevant legal conditions). Treatment in the gas-proof relaxing chair can be carried out in a comfortable, half-sitting position. Its new feature is that it is mobile and aesthetic; it can be upgraded with extras, thus expanding its scope of use. Safe, bottled gas of controlled composition is used for the treatments, which makes the operation simpler and more cost-effective. It is mobile, hygienic, aesthetic, comfortable and (may be) equipped with extras.
As a result of the innovation, in addition to medical treatment and rehabilitation, the treatment with the relaxing chair can also be applied for the purposes of performance increasing and roboration in the fields of wellness, fitness and spa, in the gym, in professional sports and workplaces.
WHY IS IT INTERESTING?
Due to the extremely high number of those suffering from circulatory disorders and angiopathy, the dry CO2 gas therapy plays a prominent role in therapeutics (e.g. in treatment centres by micro-regions; approx. 0.9–1.6 million insured people live in 1 micro-region) prevention after-care increase in physical and mental abilities as well as in improvement in recreation and self-care. For example: treatment of aortic stenosis, reduction of circulatory disorders and sleep disorder, improvement of visual acuity, impotence, mycosis, facilitating of healing of wounds, urination complaints, exhaustion, depression etc.
As a result of a change in view of life that started in the world several decades ago, increased attention has been paid to the improvement of the quality of life and the preservation of health. ● The new device serves the purpose of the recreation of the society’s ability to work and the possibility of living a high-quality life. ● Note: Spas and balneotherapy are highly popular because there is demand for them. The CO2 gas bath will have special importance in overcoming the ills associated with civilisation (circulatory disorders, vascular diseases, obesity, depression etc.).
