ПЛАЗМЕННЫЕ ГЕНЕРАТОРЫ «VISOM-R» и «VISOM-А»

Плазменные генераторы «VISOM-R» и «VISOM-А» являются разновидностью аппаратов, использующих метод «холодной плазмы» и относятся к физиотерапевтическому медицинскому оборудованию, предназначенному для санации тела, обработки ран, кожных повреждений и высыпаний, обработки онкологических образований, устранения паразитарных, грибковых, бактериальных и вирусных инфекций, а также для дезинфекции хирургических инструментов и медицинских помещений.
Приборы генерируют электромагнитное поле средних частот, естественного безвредного спектра от 1Гц до 990Гц. 
Мощность приборов (от 30 до 225Вт) не позволяет обрабатывать большие помещения, однако способно эффективно подавлять большинство известных вирусов, бактерий, грибков и паразитов в радиусе от 1 до 3 метров.
Разработаны международной группой ученых, на основании многолетних научных исследований в области частотно-волнового воздействия на органические патогены:

 «ХОЛОДНАЯ АТМОСФЕРНАЯ ПЛАЗМА» (cold atmospheric plasma, «САР») является одним из наиболее перспективных инструментов для профилактики инфекционных заболеваний и внутрибольничных инфекций.
Известно, что САР инактивируют широкий спектр микроорганизмов, таких как бактерии, грибы, биопленки, вирусы и споры [ 1 — 6 ]. Очень важным моментом является то, что CAP также способны инактивировать бактерии, устойчивые к антибиотикам, таким как мультирезистентный золотистый стафилококк (MRSA)  [ 7 , 8 ].

Даже Deinococcus radiodurans, которые устойчивы к ультрафиолетовому (УФ) излучению, окислению и высыханию, что делает его «самой жесткой бактерией в мире» (как указано в Книге рекордов Гиннеса) могут быть инактивированы в течение нескольких секунд [ 9].

Более того, последние результаты показывают, что микроорганизмы также могут быть инактивированы сквозь различные ткани (текстиль), что открывает еще больше областей применения [10].
Использование CAP в медицине и здравоохранении в качестве дезинфицирующего средства решит многие проблемы — от раздраженной кожи из-за мытья и дезинфекции рук, стерилизации хирургического оборудования до профилактики внутрибольничных инфекций и распространения устойчивых микроорганизмов.
Большое количество исследований, выполненных в последние годы, показали, что все протестированные патогены могут быть легко инактивированы CAP в небольших временных интервалах (
от нескольких секунд до минут) [ 1 — 7 , 31 ].»

«Устройством для микроволновой плазмы, (разработано под эгидой Института физики им. Макса Планка) обрабатывали мультирезистентный стафилококк аурис (MRSA) плазмой в течение 2 минут, а затем инкубировали в течение 24 часов. Там, где была применена плазма, практически не обнаружено выживших бактерий (определяемых как единичные колониеобразующие единицы), что указывает на снижение бактериальной нагрузки на 99,9999%
Эти результаты свидетельствуют о том, что САР, безусловно, способны дезактивировать ключевые микробные загрязнители при внутрибольничной инфекции»
