Idiopathic Edema Clinical Trial
Efficacy and Safety Evaluation of Changes in Lower Extremity Edema of Radiofrequency in Adult Women With Idiopathic Edema: Blinded, Cross-over, Pilot Study
The purpose of this study is to verify the efficacy and safety of the radiofrequency stimulation compared to the sham stimulation in reducing lower extremity edema in adult women with idiopathic edema.
In this study, based on the characteristics of radiofrequency, it was hypothesized that radiofrequency could have an effect on the reduction of lower extremity edema and prevention of fatigue. The occurrence of edema is interpreted as a problem that blood circulation is not smooth due to increased inflow of body fluid, and therefore the degree of edema is also used as an indicator of blood circulation. Therefore, in this study, based on the principle that radiofrequency promotes phosphorylation and blood circulation, the purpose of this study is to investigate whether radiofrequency treatment is effective in reducing edema of the lower extremities and changing body heat in the lower extremities compared to the gastric stimulation device through exploratory research. ;
