Life Care LCMI
Life Care Magnetic Induction
The Company’s lead product, Life Care’s LCM-1 is based on advanced modern magnetics: proprietary high frequency magnetic induction technology (Life Care Magnetic Induction, or LCMI). The first product in this line, the LCM-1, relies on rapidly alternating magnetic fields that pass harmlessly through the skin surface and deliver localized, planar heat to tissues for treatment of selected medical conditions. The Company’s research shows that in skin, the heat localizes primarily in s collagen-rich dermal tissue just below the surface as well as in the deeper muscle layers. In clinical aesthetic studies, the system has demonstrated safety and ease-of-use, minimal patient discomfort, while achieving high efficacy for improvement of appearance, with no patient downtime. Clinical research also provided data that localized heating produced by LCMI results in dramatic changes in appearance, suggestive of improvements to underlying muscle tone and dermal skin tightening. Patients showed improved aesthetic appearance without apparent collateral tissue damage.1
The Company’s research shows that LCMI is capable of directing energy derived from high frequency alternating magnetic fields to induce effects not only in tissues but also in specially formulated biomaterials. This technology provides the product development platform for novel tools for medical practitioners to shape, tighten, fuse and seal tissues, addressing large unmet needs in aesthetics and surgery.
Pre-clinical studies support a product pipeline with the potential to:
- Restore continence by tightening loose supportive tissues in the pelvic floor
- Mold and reshape cartilage for aesthetic application to ears and noses, and for repair of airway passages.
- Fuse and seal tissues during surgery without sutures or staples using futuristic activated biopolymers.
