In 1900, Nicolas Tesla patented an equipment that could transfer energy wirelessly. Although due to the very high voltage used in the design, it was massive and dangerous; however, today with help of modern electronics, it can be made very small and operating with low voltages and therefore having numerous applications is a wide range of areas. One of such areas is the medical treatment of patients as will be described below.
This project which was a research work requested by a medical research doctor for the safe medicinal treatment of patients. According to this project, it was possible to transfer certain medical properties of a solution to a nearby solution through electromagnetic waves. This issue has been long on by different researchers and the client wanted to further investigate the possibility of this method of medication. Therefore our company was requested to make a design that could fulfill this task. The design which was a Tesla operated device was conducted according to the client’s recommendations and was supposed to achieve the followings:
- Transferring the energy of natural remedies, especially homeopathic, into a suitable medium electronically, thus duplicating the remedies
- Treating a person’s health imbalances by a radiating them with a series of natural remedies and homeopathic, perhaps using hand electrodes or just having them exposed to the field.
- Testing to what extent medicinal drugs can be transformed into an energetic substance like a homeopathic remedy, thus removing all the harmful aspects and side effects
The design requirements consisted of the followings:
- Two adjacent planar coils at a small distance. The first coil that acted as a transmitter was connected to an oscillator circuit that produced high-frequency electrical oscillations. These oscillations would then create electromagnetic waves. The second coil was the receiver that would receive the waves from the primary coil.
- The secondary coil was finally requested to be 15cm far from the primary coil.
- According to the theory, the solution containing the medicine was put on the primary coil the glass containing some water was put on the secondary coil. Once the device was turned on, the medicinal properties of the first solution were expected to be transferred to the second solution.
The main challenge in this project was what would be the longest distance between the two coils to peak the signal strong enough.
In order to achieve a design that could fulfill the client’s request, the design team made a thorough investigation and research work and considered all design options that were previously discussed in research papers. Having spent a lot of time on reviewing all the scientific papers and discuss these options with the client, the team finally chose an option that could best achieve the client’s requirements. The work was followed in two stages. In the first stage, for the ease of initial checking and debugging, the coils were designed separately and made manually. Having made the coils and the electronic circuit, their work was tested. After getting assured of the system’s performance, the second stage was proceeded with. In the second stage, the whole set was designed on a single two-layer PCB and final measurements were done. Some of the main features of the final design included the followings.
- The two coils were located at the distance of 15 cm from each other.
- The input voltage was selected to be 12V.
- The circuit for the primary section included an oscillator circuit connected to the primary coil antenna. It had an amplifier and a measuring circuit.
- The secondary section included an Arduino design for receiving the transmitted signals from the primary coil. So the whole design consisted of two flat (pancake) coils assembled on a single PCB.
- The size of the final board was 15cm x 45cm.
- The transmitter coil was to pick up the energy of homeopathic remedy, transfer it to the receiver side coil where it will be amplified, and measured.
The final configuration was determined by numerous calculations and actual testing and the final solution was made after 6 months of detailed work. The design included two 21-turn coil antennas in a PCB board. Also, an enclosure was made for the design for its protection. The design was supplied by a 12V battery and its power could be varied. The final design was delivered to the client to do his research work.
