I have an idea and I need some help testing it.
My mother has advanced Scleroderma with advanced secondary Raynauds. I have Raynauds as well, but not as advanced and so far as I know, primary. She
has already lost one finger to the disease and is now, according to the rheumatologist, in danger of losing at least one more.
I'm not very good at giving up, so I did a little research. It appears to me that something similar to a Rife machine might assist in blood flow
through her capillaries. My idea is to work up a test unit and try it out on me to see if there are improvements and to fine-tune the frequencies
needed. I can then put together something semi-complete for her to use.
A Rife machine uses EM waves on a radio frequency for tissue penetration, modulated with low-frequency signals to create cellular membrane resonance
responses. Essentially, I need to create a low-frequency white noise signal modulated by a higher-frequency (500 kHz?) waveform. I can do that easily
enough and fast enough using an Arduino or MSP430 using a lookup table, but changing the output would be a complete reprogram. So I am thinking of
using a Matlab-based script to create the waveform. That way I can adjust frequencies with a couple of mouse clicks to test the idea out. I can
breadboard any amplifier/transducer I need, as that will not be hard to adjust.
The problem is getting the waveform from the Matlab program into an actual circuit.
The computer I have to work with is a custom build. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate on an AMD1090T hex-core (3.1 GHz) with 16 GB DDR3 RAM. I have USB
2.0 and 3.0 outputs, but assembling a custom USB interface would be time consuming. Audio out probably wouldn't work well with the carrier frequency.
I do have plenty of PCI ports available if there's a peripheral that would work. Also, I still have three SATA ports free, although I don't know how
that could help me.
Does anyone have any ideas how to get the signal out of the computer before I have to start joining a bunch of computer help forums?
