Title: Using Sound Waves to Modify Propagation Characteristics of Biological Calcium Signaling
Invention: This invention is a new method of interaction between soundwaves and biological tissues, thus enabling regulation of biological activity.
Background: Acoustic technology uses sound waves for sensing and therapeutic uses on tissues. Currently no sound wave therapy systems that accurately target biological regulators of intercellular calcium signaling. This technology applies acoustic technology to sense and control intercellular calcium signals signals, affecting biological phenomena and diseases.
- Sound-based biological sensors and therapies
- Sound irradiation controls calcium signals
- Calcium signaling control in gap-junction-based cell to cell communications
- Non-invasive with minimal risks
