ICOONE®-H is a newly designed electro-me-chanical medical instrument planned to drain the veino-lymphatic cutaneous network acting upon the alveolar interstitial spaces of the connective tissue thus moving effectively the sequestered fluid. The basic action mechanism involves a mechanical friction by rotating and aspirating rollers and an aspiration vacuum chamber in the middle, which softly traps the skin and induces motility of the dermal and subcutaneous vascular channels; three different actions are thus identifies : draining and pressing at the two lateral framework of the handle, skin stretching and connective fibrils dynamic stimulation in the central part, and reflex neurovascular motility triggered by the back and forth movement of the ICOONE®-H over the anatomical segments to be treated
Our experimental investigation demonstrates that the effectiveness of ICOONE®-H treatment can be addressed beyond cosmetic and aesthetic medical area, also to specific skin diseases related to abnormal connective tissue reaction like hypertrophic skulls kiloid and burns.
Also peripheral vascular oedema skin ulcers, lymphatic ectasia are dramatic improve by a cycle of ICOONE®-H treatment.
Even constipation due to hypotonia of the gut can be improved by ICOONE®-H administration probably through mechano-receptor reflex of the skin.
The safety of the instrument as being definitely confirmed in all the treatment 100%cases with the highest compliance due to the pleasant and relaxing effects of the ICOONE®-H-skin interaction.
Conclusively we recommend the use of the instrument either cosmetic problems or in medical disease trials, when connective tissue as well as microcirculation impairment are involved, and when visceral reactivity as to be elicited by neurosensorial dermal reflexes
