Description



CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

[0001] This application claims priority from U.S. provisional patent application serial No. 60/413,617, filed on Sep. 25, 2002, which is incorporated by reference in its entirety.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0002] This invention relates generally to a biomolecular wearable apparatus regulating energy-flow, and more particularly to a biomolecular wearable apparatus regulating thermomagnetic energy flow within human body for producing beneficial effects including an improvement in stamina and a relief from a pain.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0003] Jewelries including ring, necklace, bracelets, and pendants are typically used for decorative purpose. However, there is a segment of the jewelry market that concerns itself for a purpose other than decorative. Examples of jewelries that are designed for the purpose other than decorative include copper bracelets and magnetic jewelries.

[0004] Copper bracelet is believed to perform functions of relieving pain and helping to alleviate symptoms of arthritis for a user. A mode of operation for these functions has been proposed as mobility of copper ions from the copper bracelet through the user's skin and into the user's blood stream. If the mobility of copper ions is the mode of operation of a copper bracelet, then an individual or a user could not obtain immediate relief from pain, etc., due to a long period of time required for this mode of operation to become effective. Accordingly, a drawback of existing systems with respect to a copper bracelet is that the therapeutic response--if any--takes place over a relatively long period of time. Another drawback of the existing systems is that the copper bracelets have a limited and narrow field of use.

[0005] Various types of magnetic jewelries are believed to perform functions of relieving pain and improving circulation. Clinical studies performed with magnetic jewelries indicated that there is an effect going on other than a placebo effect. An effect of a magnet on a human body could be due, in part, to the fact that human blood contains iron. In one theory, the iron in the blood causes the blood to be attracted to a part of the body in which the magnet is worn, resulting in improvement in circulation. However, there are biophysicists who question the efficacy of a magnetic jewelry. For example, it is well known that the DNA contains Hydrogen bonds. Because a magnet is polar in nature, a back emf from the magnet to the Hydrogen bonds may be possible. This might cause the Hydrogen to spin in opposition to what is normal and disassemble the DNA of that cell. In any case, long term studies of magnets as they apply to humans are needed. Another drawback of the existing systems with respect to a magnetic jewelry, is that the therapeutic response--if any--is limited and narrow with respect to the field of use.

[0006] Therefore, with respect to jewelries that may be utilized for the purpose of achieving a therapeutic effect, there is a need for an alternative to the copper bracelet and the magnetic jewelries that are found in the present market. Such alternative may require a mode of operation that is different from the modes of operation of the existing copper bracelet and magnetic jewelries. In this regard, an examination of alternative modes of operation for a passive therapeutic jewelry needs to be considered.

[0007] First, referring to eastern philosophies, and specifically the Indian belief of a human CHAKRA SYSTEM, a representation of what is referred to in eastern medicine and philosophy as the human Chakra system is described. According to eastern philosophy, the human Chakras are points in the body in which a vortex-like flow reversal occurs, establishing a strong energy point in the human body. Like acupuncture, the concept of a "Chakra" system in human beings has not been embraced by conventional western medicine. However, it is interesting to note that the Chakra points do coincide with acupuncture points. Furthermore, the Chakra point of the Heart (#4, Anahata/Anandakanda) has special relevance to the invention disclosed here.

[0008] Referring now to publicly available HUMAN ACUPUNCTURE CHARTS, a representation of various human acupuncture and acupressure points are described. Unlike the "Chakra" concept, acupuncture has had some acceptance in western medicine, although this acceptance has only happened over a period of decades. As may be seen in Acupuncture Charts, there is a strong Chi (energy) point at the same point as the #4 Chakra. This is known as the Shanzhong point, and is indicative of the primary energy flow point in the human body. For further clarification, this point is located on the anterior midline, at the level of the fourth intercostals space. An additional point of interest is the Zhongji point, located 4 cun below the umbilicus, and is indicative of the crossing point of the ren channel. This is not to say that there are not additional points of interest in the acupuncture system.

[0009] Referring now to the work of Davis and Rawls (Magnetism and its effect on the living system by Albert Roy Davis and Walter C. Rawls, April 1996, Acres USA Publications), a view has been illustrated for actual electrical measurements made on the front surfaces of a human body. These measurements were performed by Albert Roy Davis and Walter Rawls at the Albert Roy Davis Research Laboratory in Florida. The findings of these two researchers indicate that the right side of the human body is positively (electrically) charged and the left side of the human body is negatively charged. These findings also indicate the average voltages that were recorded at various locations of the human body. It is worth noting that the vicinity of the #4 Chakra point shows the highest voltage among all the points on the human body. This would also coincide with the belief in the acupuncture system that the Shanzhong point is the strongest Chi point in the human body.

[0010] Referring again to Rawis and Davis (Magnetism and its effect on the living system by Albert Roy Davis and Walter C. Rawls, April 1996, Acres USA Publications), a view has been illustrated for the electromagnetic equators of the human body. Of interest with respect to the invention disclosed here is the point in the center of the chest, which Davis and Rawls state that according to their findings, this point is where voltage change is noted, and at this point there is zero voltage when measuring from the crotch to this point. Again, this corresponds well with the Chakra system and the acupuncture system.

[0011] In addition, the body of evidence supporting acupuncture has reached the point of being irrefutable. This said, a conclusion may be reached that in addition to blood flowing through the human body, there is also an energy flow through the human body.

[0012] In order to understand the energy flow through the human body, a phenomenon of a thermomagnetic field may need to be considered. A thermomagnetic field may be obtained when a group of dissimilar metals is arranged so as to form a coil, with each dissimilar metal junction being alternately heated and cooled. To illustrate this effect, reference is now made to the work of Schroeder, with publicly titled documents (U.S. Pat. No. 5,393,350 and U.S. Pat. No. 5,597,976) entitled THERMOELECTRIC GENERATOR AND MAGNETIC ENERGY STORAGE UNIT invented by Schroeder. In operation, this device is capable of obtaining a low voltage, high current within the ring structure resulting in a magnetic field of 10 to 20 tesla. The magnetic field produced is so strong that the ring requires structural reinforcement with Keviar or the like. The point made here is that this device produces a magnetic field in a novel manner, a method that does not use an electrical input but rather an input of heat.

[0013] Referring now to FIG. 1, a human body as illustrated relates to temperature differential. As illustrated in FIG. 1, human beings maintain a core temperature that is higher with respect to the extremities of the hands and feet. This differential is well known in the art and may be viewed in detail via infrared imaging techniques well known to those of skilled in the art. Due to this temperature differential as well as other factors, the conditions necessary for the production of thermomagnetic fields within the human body may be present. This phenomenon is scientifically plausible when one considers temperature differential, the presence of dissimilar metal components in the body such as Iron (blood) and Copper (collagen, enzymes, etc.), and the manner in which the blood flows via the circulatory system (flow reversals at extremities). In eastern philosophy, the thermomagnetic field is referred to as the "Aura", and is shown to extend several inches from the body. This would be consistent with magnetism. Furthermore, Kirlian photography technique records a field of energy emanating several inches from humans and plants, again consistent with magnetic fields.

[0014] If there is indeed a magnetic energy field that extends from the surface of a human body, then it should be possible to construct a passive apparatus that would be capable of interacting with this field, and altering the properties of this field. As an example, in acupuncture, a practitioner utilizes known techniques to detect "blockages" to energy flows in the human body. When the locations of these blockages are determined, then either needles or pressure is applied to this point for the purpose of relieving and removing the blockages. Accordingly, another drawback of the existing systems is a lack of an apparatus that can be placed over specific acupuncture points and that can interact with a humans' energy field and promote energy flow and circulation in a similar mode of operation to acupuncture but without needles or physical contact.

[0015] When considering the flow of either fluids or energy, we now consider vortex flows that consist of either centripetal or centrifugal forces, and how these flows might be produced passively. As will be recalled, a vortex may have an inward spiraling flow (centripetal) or an outward spiraling flow (centrifugal). In nature, the tornado is an example of a phenomena that illustrates both flow types. Further, it is often stated that an inward spiraling vortex is associated with a build-up of energy, such as the destructive tip of the tornado, while an outward spiraling vortex is associated with a dilution of energy.

[0016] Various chemical species in the human body and biochemical materials may also need to be considered since they may play a role in interacting with energy fields within the human body. To this end, Left-Handed and Right-Handed molecules may need to be considered. It is known that the Left-Handed group of molecules known as amino acids are utilized in the body for the purpose of building protein structures such as muscle tissue. This process of the amino acid forming a "building block" for a larger protein structure is generally recognized as being a solely chemical process. However, if all naturally occurring amino acids are considered Left-Handed (amino acids are isomers and demonstrate the phenomena of optical chirality), and that light passing through an amino acid will bend to the left, a thermomagnetic field in the presence of an L-amino acid would orient itself to the left as well. Accordingly, at the molecular level, in the process of the amino acid being used to form a protein, the human thermomagnetic field twists to the left in the presence of the L-amino acid, causing the thermomagnetic field to spin clockwise (inward) which creates a buildup of energy, with this energy assisting in the formation of the new protein structure.

[0017] Similarly, some sugars such as sucrose may play a role in the human body. Common table sugar is a right-handed molecule. Thus, the human thermomagnetic field in the presence of sugar would spin counter-clockwise thereby creating a centrifugal flow which would lead to the dissipation of an energy field. This would at first seem to be inconsistent with the role that sugar plays in the body, which would be to create the basic building blocks of energy units (ATP). However, if we examine the actual chemical process that sugar is involved in, then we know that in order for sugar to enter the ATP cycle, it must first be broken down. Accordingly, at the molecular level, in the process of the sugar being broken down so that it may be used for the creation of ATP, the human thermomagnetic field twists to the right in the presence of the sugar, causing the thermomagnetic field to spin counter-clockwise (outward) which creates a dissipation of the structure, with this energy assisting in the destruction of the sugar molecule.

[0018] If these effects are occurring within the human body, then it should be possible to create a device that passively interacts with the human body in such a way so as to promote the build-up or flow of energy within the human body.

[0019] Therefore, another drawback of the existing system is a lack of an apparatus and a method for regulating the energy-flow, thereby producing a beneficial response within the human body.

[0020] These and other drawbacks also exist.

[0050] According to one embodiment, the invention provides an apparatus that produces a beneficial effect when placed on a human body, wherein the apparatus regulates thermodynamic energy-flow within the human body for producing the beneficial effect. In some embodiments, the beneficial effect may include, for example, strength increase, stamina increase, and pain relief.

[0051] According to another embodiment, the invention provides an apparatus that may include biomolecular components for regulating thermomagnetic energy flow within a human body. In one embodiment, the biomolecular components may include molecules associated with building-up of energy (e.g., thermomagnetic energy). In another embodiment, the biomolecular components may include molecules associated with dilution of energy (e.g., thermomagnetic energy). In yet another embodiment, the biomolecular components may include molecules associated with building-up of energy (e.g., thermomagnetic energy) and dilution of energy (e.g., thermomagnetic energy). In a further embodiment, the biomolecular components may include orthomolecular (e.g., naturally occurring organic compounds) and/or non-orthomolecular organic materials capable of thermomagnetic levororotary action and/or thermomagnetic dextrorotatory action.

[0052] According to another embodiment, the invention provides an apparatus that may include orthomolecular organic compounds (e.g., naturally occurring organic compounds) and or non-orthomolecular organic compounds for inducing one or more beneficial effects such as, for example, strength increase, stamina increase, pain relief, etc.

[0053] Some of the orthomolecular and non-orthomolecular organic compounds may be more fully described as complex organic structures with asymmetric carbon atoms capable of either thermomagnetic levorotatory action due to the proton pulling forces associated with thermomagnetic fields or thermomagnetic dextrorotatory action due to the proton pulling forces associated with thermomagnetic fields. In both cases, according to one embodiment of the invention, the orthomolecular and/or nonorthomolecular organic materials utilized may be arranged parallel with respect to the plane of thermomagnetic rotation.

[0054] According to another embodiment, the invention provides an apparatus, wherein the apparatus functions on the basis of the principle that the proton pulling forces associated with human thermomagnetic fields are capable of interacting with passive orthomolecular and or non-orthomolecular organic materials so long as these materials are arranged parallel to the plane of rotation, with this arrangement inducing electron flow due to well known and long established electromotive principles.

[0055] It is known that hemoglobin is an Iron-containing pigment of red blood cells. Its function is to carry Oxygen from the lungs to other tissues. It is also known that collagen is a Copper containing, fibrous insoluble protein in connective tissues, including skin, bone, ligaments and cartilage. In addition, human beings possess a natural temperature differential from the core to the extremities.

[0056] In physics, the Seebeck effect describes a phenomena in which when an apparatus consists of two metals (such as Iron and Copper), with one metal at a higher temperature than the other, a current flows in the apparatus. The Thomson thermoelectric effect is the designation of the potential gradient along a conductor which accompanies a temperature gradient.

[0057] The thermomagnetic phenomena arises in that the thermoelectric and thermomagnetic power is measured by electromotive force produced by the unit difference of temperature, in this case the temperature differential from the core to the extremities. In short, all of the conditions necessary for human beings to produce thermomagnetic fields are present in humans.

[0058] According to another embodiment, the invention provides a passive apparatus that includes orthomolecular and non-orthomolecular organic compounds for improving one or more beneficial effects (e.g., strength, stamina, human performance, etc.) by interacting with a human thermomagnetic field. This interaction may induce an increased electron flow within a human body. In some embodiments, this interaction is not unlike the effect that occurs in an electrical generator in which electricity is produced from moving magnets or magnetic fields.

[0059] In humans, an increase in electron flow has numerous demonstrable benefits with one being an immediate and measurable increase in physical strength. This is not a chemically induced increase in strength such as would be the case with anabolic steroids, etc., but rather a phenomena in which existing muscle mass is utilized more efficiently due to the increase in electron flow.

[0060] To understand how this phenomena could be possible, if we examine the striated skeletal muscle apparatus we know that this voluntary group nerve supply is under conscious control because these nerves are branches of the peripheral cerebrospinal nervous apparatus (the brain and spinal cord as the cerebrospinal axis), The muscle fibers themselves are tissues composed of contractile cells that effect movement based on the excitatory process set up in nerve fibers by stimuli (the nerve impulse). It is presently believed by medical research that the nerve impulse is probably in the nature of a wave of electrochemical disturbances. The efficiency with which the nerve impulse controls a specific muscle group can be defined as the number of muscle fibers utilized in a contraction divided by the number of fibers present in that muscle group. It is presently believed that most humans only contract a small percentage of muscle fibers in a given group for a given nerve impulse (low efficiency of muscle mass usage per nerve impulse contraction).

[0061] If now we were to induce a condition in which the total power of the electrochemical nerve impulse could be increased so that more muscle fibers could contract for a given nerve impulse, the net efficiency of the striated fibers would increase (more muscle fibers in a group being contracted for a nerve impulse), and hence usable physical strength could be improved. This is one possible explanation for the phenomena associated with beneficial effects, for example, immediate and demonstrable increases in strength and stamina within seconds of wearing the wearable apparatus of the present invention.

[0062] This phenomena is not unusual or unknown in other devices. For example, in physical therapy electrical signals are utilized for the purpose of forcing voluntary muscle groups to contract under stimulation. These devices are commonly known as electrical or electronic muscle stimulators (EMS) and cause stimulated contraction and relaxation phases of muscle groups. According to another embodiment, the invention provides an apparatus for, based on the mode of operation as presented, an improvement in net efficiency of total muscle mass utilized during a contraction phase that may be achieved due to an increase in electron flow during the wave of electrochemical disturbances created by the nerve impulse.

[0063] According to another aspect, the invention provides an apparatus that passively modulates the oscillating low energy magnetic field that exists just above the surface of the human epidermal layer. This passive frequency modulation creates a condition in which the transport of long chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane for subsequent beta-oxidation and energy production is triggered or improved, thereby providing a user of the apparatus with increased energy via an increase in ATP production as described above.

[0064] To understand this phenomenon, the metabolic process involving fatty acid energy sources within the human body can be examined. Fatty acids, a hydrocarbon in which one of the hydrogen atoms has been replaced by a carboxyl group, are also described as a monobasic aliphatic acid made up of an alkyl radical attached to a carboxyl group. The metabolic role of fatty acids may be described in part in that fatty acids are one of the primary sources of energy for humans and, through Beta-Oxidation, are broken down into basic units of energy. Of interest here is that, in order for this process to work, fatty acids need to enter the mitochondria for Beta-Oxidation, and they are unable to penetrate the inner mitochondrial membrane by themselves. In the human body, to overcome the problem of the inability of fatty acids to transport from the cytosol (soluble portion of the cell) across the mitochondrial membrane, it has been determined by several researchers that various nutrients are essential to transport long chain fatty acids from the cytosol across the mitochondrial membrane for fatty acid oxidation/metabolism and energy production.

[0065] According to the invention, in order to obtain the desirable effect of improving cell metabolism passively (specifically, increasing the rate of fatty acid Beta-Oxidation by allowing fatty acids to transport across the mitochondrial membrane), an apparatus consisting of orthomolecular organic structures can be designed to passively interact with the human magnetic field for the purpose of creating a system of frequency modulation, much in the same way that radio waves are modulated to communicate audio information.

[0066] According to an embodiment of the invention, an apparatus 100 that causes a beneficial effect by regulating thermomagnetic energy-flow within a human body are illustrated in FIGS. 2A, 2B, 3A, and 3B.

[0067] According to another embodiment, the invention provides apparatus 100 comprising biomolecular components that may include molecules associated with building-up of energy (e.g., thermomagnetic energy). In some embodiments, biomolecular components may include a Left-Handed molecule such as, for example, an amino acid. In one embodiment, the apparatus may include a structure that may be used for promoting the flow of energy (electrons) within a human body so as to improve physical strength of a user, wherein the structure may include a Left-Handed molecule such as, for example, an amino acid.

Example 16

[0185] The invention provides a new supplement and method for the improvement of athletic performance, and more particularly a means by which an individual may increase their net stamina/strength endurance output. To quantitatively assess the effectiveness of the invention in improving the bench press performance of fatigued college football athletes during team training, a double-blind placebo controlled study was implemented at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga., with 44 college athletes from the school's football team volunteering to participate in this study. In most evaluations of strength endurance involving competitive athletes, it is common and customary to perform both baseline and comparative tests prior to the athlete having performed any other type of physical activity. In this study, both baseline and comparative data were collected after the athletes had been fatigued by a 60-minute heavy weight-training workout. In addition, it was also decided to test the athletes while under heavy physical trauma. The athletes performed the workout and tests starting at 4:30 a.m. in a weight training room where the temperature was maintained in excess of 95.degree. F. The standardized exercise that was chosen for this test was a 185 pound or 225 pound bench press.

[0186] Using a double-blind randomized placebo controlled study, a total of 44 subjects, ages 18 to 30 years, volunteered to participate for this study. Subjects' baseline bench press data was collected after a normal prescribed off-season football upper body 60-minute workout session. Subjects were asked to bench press a fixed weight until failure.

[0187] In the next session, subjects were randomized into three groups using a numbering system that labeled participants as experiment group, placebo group or control group members with 44 completing this two-session study. The placebo group was provided with dermal patches that had placebo water formula. The experimental group was provided with experimental dermal patches. The experimental dermal patches included either patch 400 having Left-Handed molecules or patch 400 having Right-Handed molecules or both. In the experimental group, patch 400 having left-handed molecules was placed on the palm side of the right forearm of the participants, and patch 400 having right-handed molecules was placed on palm side of the left forearm of the participants. In the placebo group, placebo dermal patches were placed on palm sides of both the left arm and the right arm of the participants. A collection team independent of the players collected and monitored data throughout the study process.

[0188] Data collected from the two-day study was as follows. All numbers listed are repetitions performed:

1 CONTROL GROUP PLACEBO GROUP EXPERIMENT GROUP Baseline Comparative % Change Baseline Comparative % Change Baseline Comparative % Change 6 4 -33 8 8 0 12 10 -17 10 12 20 7 8 14 1 3 200 9 11 22 5 6 20 6 12 100 5 5 0 4 3 -25 4 6 50 12 12 0 6 3 -50 2 3 50 10 10 0 15 18 20 5 3 -40 10 9 -10 12 10 -17 9 9 0 2 3 50 11 13 18 11 15 36 3 0 -100 12 12 0 3 4 33 4 4 0 7 10 43 18 16 -11 10 12 20 16 21 31 15 16 7 5 4 -20 20 23 15 6 9 50 10 9 -10 9 7 -22 16 16 0 5 5 0 4 5 25 15 15 0 8 10 25 10 11 10

[0189] From the data collected in the above table, it was determined that (1) the average percentage change in strength endurance in the Control group was a decrease in performance of 3.1% from the baseline tests to the comparative tests; (2) the average percentage change in strength endurance in the Placebo group was an increase in performance of 3.6% from the baseline tests to the comparative tests; (3) the average percentage change in strength endurance in the Experiment group was an increase in performance of 33.9% from the baseline tests to the comparative tests.

[0190] In addition, the data shows the following:

2 CONTROL GROUP PLACEBO GROUP EXPERIMENT GROUP Decrease Same Increase Decrease Same Increase Decrease Same Increase 5 6 5 4 2 7 3 2 10

[0191] In the Control group, applicants found that 31.25% of the participants showed a decrease in performance during the two-day study, 37.5% of the participants maintained the same level of performance during the two-day study, and 31.25% of the participants showed an increase in performance during the two-day study. In the Placebo group, applicants found that 30.8% of the participants showed a decrease in performance during the two-day study, 15.4% of the participants maintained the same level of performance during the two-day study, and 53.8% of the participants showed an increase in performance during the two-day study. In the Experiment group, applicants found that 20% of the participants showed a decrease in performance during the two-day study, 13.33% of the participants maintained the same level of performance during the two-day study, and 66.67% of the participants showed an increase in performance during the two-day study.

[0192] After removing the data for the individuals who both decreased in performance and maintenance the same level of performance, applicants found that (1) in the Control group, with respect to the 5 individuals who did show an improvement in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average increase in strength endurance was 24.4%; (2) in the Placebo group, with respect to the 7 individuals who did show an improvement in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average increase in strength endurance was 23%; (3) in the Experimental group, with respect to the 10 individuals who did show an improvement in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average increase in strength endurance was 57.6%.

[0193] After removing the data for the individuals who both increased in performance and maintained the same level of performance, applicants found that (1) in the Control group, with respect to the 5 individuals who decreased in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average decrease in strength endurance was 34.6%; (2) in the Placebo group, with respect to the 4 individuals who decreased in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average decrease in strength endurance was 28.5%; (3) in the Experiment group, with respect to the 3 individuals who decreased in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average decrease in strength endurance was 22.67%.

[0194] Based on the data collected, it is evident that there are several distinct differences in athletic performance between the three test groups. With respect to the simple averaging of performance numbers, it is not unusual that the Control group experienced a decrease in strength endurance given the nature of the test (baseline data collected on a Monday and comparative data collected on a Thursday; data collected after athletes were fatigued). With respect to the Placebo group, a case could be made that there was indeed a "Placebo effect" that took place; athletes that wore the patch product thought that they had the real technology so, hence, they made more of an effort to perform. Given the data of the average group performance improvement of 3.6%, this would be a reasonable spread in terms of attainable improvements from the baseline day to the comparative day. With respect to the Experiment group, a case could be made that there was indeed a significant effect of the experimental dermal patch on athletic performance; athletes that wore the patch product experienced an average improvement of 33.9% in strength performance. The spreads in average performance numbers between the three groups is significant and would tend to indicate that the experimental dermal patch played an important role in improving strength endurance in the experiment group.

[0195] Another indicator that the experimental dermal patch was having a significant effect on athletic stamina is evidenced in the chart. As could be expected, in the Control group, there is an almost even distribution between athletes that decreased in performance, athletes that remained the same in performance, and athletes that improved in performance. In the Placebo group, 7 individuals improved in performance as compared to 5 in the Control group. However, given the low average improvement in members and the well-known "Placebo effect," this spread is anticipated. In the Experiment group, only 3 members decreased in performance, with 10 members improving in strength endurance. Given that the Experiment group had the highest percentage of members who recorded an improvement in performance, with two-thirds of the members demonstrating an improvement, and that the average improvement was significantly higher than the other two groups (33.9%), this would again indicate that the experimental dermal patch was having a beneficial effect on athletic performance. Another potentially important indicator with respect to examining whether or not the experimental dermal patch was having a beneficial effect on athletic performance is found when looking at only those individuals who increased in performance or only those individuals who decreased in performance. In the Control group, applicants found that of those individuals how did show an improvement, the average gain was 24.4%; of those in the Control group who decreased in performance, the average decline in performance was 34.6%. In the Placebo group, applicants found that of those individuals who did show an improvement, the average gain was similar to the Control group at 23%; of those in the Placebo group who decreased in performance, applicants found that the average decline in performance was 28.5%. In the Experiment group, applicants found that of those individuals who did show an improvement, the average gain was more than double of the other two groups at 57.6%; of the three individuals who showed a decrease in performance, the average decline in performance was the lowest of the three groups at 22.67%. This information clearly indicates that the experimental dermal patch was having a beneficial effect on strength endurance.

[0196] Based on the data collected and the results obtained, it was demonstrated that the invention (i.e., experimental dermal patch) provides a method for the improvement of athletic performance, and more particularly a means by which an individual may increase their net stamina/strength endurance output. It was also demonstrated that the Experiment group using the invention (i.e., experimental dermal patch showed the highest percentage of improvement in strength endurance when averaging all members, the highest percentage of improvement in strength endurance when averaging only those members who showed an improvement, and the lowest percentage of decreased performance when averaging only those individuals who showed a decline in performance.

Example 17

[0197] The invention provides a new supplement and method for the improvement of athletic performance, and more particularly a means by which individuals may substantially increase their net strength endurance within as quickly as the first use of the product. To quantitatively assess the effectiveness of the invention in improving the bench press performance of college football athletes during team training, a double-blind placebo controlled study was implemented at Troy State University in Troy, Ala. A standardized test was selected to measure net gains in strength endurance, and in this case the exercise that was performed by all athletes was a 225 pound flat bench press. The baseline data for this test was collected on Thursday Jun. 26, 2003. The comparative data was collected on the following Wednesday Jul. 2, 2003. Athletes were divided into three groups: Control, Placebo and Test. The Control group was tested "as is" on both of these testing days. The Placebo group was given a set of patches filled with water; this group was unaware as to whether or not the patches were real or water filled. The Test group was given a set of patches of the invention; again, this group was unaware as to the contents of the patches. It should be emphasized that the athletes used the patches of the invention only once; the test was performed within 10 minutes of first applying the patches to the athletes.

[0198] Using a double-blind randomized placebo controlled study, a total of 25 subjects, ages 18 to 22 years, volunteered to participate for this test study. Subjects' baseline bench press data was colleted after a brief warm up period. Subjects were asked to bench press a fixed 225 pound weight until failure. In the next session, subjects were randomized into three groups using a numbering system that labeled participants as Test group, Placebo group or Control group members with 25 completing this two-session study. The Test group was provided with non-transdermal patches that included either patch 400 having Left-Handed molecules or patch 400 having Right-Handed molecules or both. In the test group, patch 400 having left-handed molecules was placed on the palm side of the right forearm of the participants, and patch 400 having right-handed molecules was placed on palm side of the left forearm of the participants. The Placebo group was provided with non-transdermal patches that contained water. In the placebo group, placebo dermal patches were placed on palm sides of both the left arm and the right arm of the participants. A collection team independent of the players collected and monitored data throughout the study process.

[0199] Data collected from the two-day study was as follows; all numbers listed are repetitions performed:

3 CONTROL PLACEBO TEST Baseline Comparative {circumflex over ( )}Reps {circumflex over ( )}Percent Baseline Comparative {circumflex over ( )}Reps {circumflex over ( )}Percent Baseline Comparative {circumflex over ( )}Reps {circumflex over ( )}Percent 10 10 0 0 23 23 0 0 3 8 +5 +166.7% 4 6 +2 +50% 10 10 0 0 16 15 -1 -6.2% 12 14 +2 +16.7% 7 12 +5 +71.4% 8 9 +1 +12.5% 9 10 +1 +11.1% 21 24 +3 +14.3% 16 18 +2 +12.5% 10 13 +3 +30% 14 8 +6 -42.8% 7 15 +8 +114.3% 5 6 +1 +20% 10 11 +1 +10% 5 8 +3 +60% 20 21 +1 +4.7% 26 27 +1 +3.8% 12 14 +2 +16.7% 18 19 +1 +5.5% 11 17 +6 +54.5% 6 5 -1 -16.7% 18 11 -7 -38.9%

[0200] From the data collected in the above table, and by removing the highest and lowest scores from each group, it was determined that (1) the average percentage change in strength endurance in the Control group was an increase in performance of 8.9% from the baseline tests to the comparative tests (average 0.875 rep improvement); (2) the average percentage change in strength endurance in the Placebo group was an increase in performance of 13.8% from the baseline tests to the comparative tests (average 1.67 rep improvement); and (3) the average percentage change in strength endurance in the Test group was an increase in performance of 43.2% from the baseline tests to the comparative tests (average 2.6 rep improvement).

[0201] In addition, the data shows the following:

4 CONTROL GROUP PLACEBO GROUP TEST GROUP Decrease Same Increase Decrease Same Increase Decrease Same Increase 2 1 7 1 2 5 1 0 6

[0202] The above table provides the breakdown of athletes in each group as it pertains to showing whether or not an athlete showed a decrease in performance from baseline to comparative test, remained the same in performance from baseline to comparative test, or showed an increase in performance from baseline to comparative test.

[0203] In the Control group, Applicants found that 20% of the participants showed a decrease in performance during the two-day study, 10% of the participants maintained the same level of performance during the two-day study, and 70% of the participants showed an increase in performance during the two-day study. In the Placebo group, Applicants found that 12.5% of the participants showed a decrease in performance during the two-day study, 25% of the participants maintained the same level of performance during the two-day study, and 62.5% of the participants showed an increase in performance during the two-day study. In the Test group, Applicants found that 14.3% of the participants showed a decrease in performance during the two-day study, 0% of the participants maintained the same level of performance during the two-day study, and 85.7% of the participants showed an increase in performance during the two-day study.

[0204] After removing the data for the individuals who both decreased in performance and maintained the same level of performance, Applicants found that (1) in the Control group, with respect to the 7 individuals who did show an improvement in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average increase in strength endurance was 19.7%; (2) in the Placebo group, with respect to the 5 individuals who did show an improvement in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average increase in strength endurance was 30.8%; (3) in the Test group, with respect to the 6 individuals who did show an improvement in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average increase in strength endurance was 63.8%.

[0205] After removing the data for the individuals who both increased in performance and maintained the same level of performance, Applicants found that (1) in the Control group, with respect to the 2 individuals who decreased in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the average decrease in strength endurance was 27.8%; (2) in the Placebo group, with respect to the 1 individual who decreased in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the decrease in strength endurance was 42.8%; (3) in the Experiment group, with respect to the 1 individual who decreased in performance from the baseline to the comparative test, the decrease in strength endurance was 6.2%.

[0206] Based on the data collected, it is evident that there are several distinct differences in athletic performance between the three groups. With respect to the simple averaging of performance numbers, it is not unusual that all three groups experienced an increase in strength endurance given the nature of the test (athletes were in a training session for the upcoming football season). With respect to the Placebo group, a case could be made that there was indeed a "Placebo Effect" that took place; athletes that wore the patch product thought that they had the real technology so hence they made more of an effort to perform. Given the data of the average group performance improvement of the Placebo group of 13.8% (as compared to 8.9% in the Control group), this would be a reasonable spread in terms of attainable improvements from the baseline day to the comparative day. With respect to the Test group, there was indeed a significant effect of the test dermal patch on athletic performance; athletes that wore the patch product experienced an average improvement of 43.2% in strength performance. The spreads in average performance numbers between the three groups is significant and would tend to indicate that the test dermal patch played an important role in improving strength endurance in the test group.

[0207] Another indicator that the test dermal patch was having a significant effect on athletic stamina is evidenced in the Table. In all three groups, Applicants found that the majority of the athletes improved in performance; however, the Control group and Placebo group showed nearly identical percentages of athletes that improved, with 70% of the Control group and 62.5% of the Placebo group. By comparison in the Test group, Applicants found that 85.7% of the participants experienced an improvement in performance. Given that the Test group had the highest percentage of members who recorded an improvement in performance, with 85.7% of the members demonstrating an improvement, and that the average improvement was significantly higher than the other two groups (43.2%) this would again indicate that the test dermal patch was having a beneficial effect on athletic performance.

[0208] Another important indicator with respect to examining that the test dermal patch was having a beneficial effect on athletic performance is found when looking at only those individuals who increased in performance or only those individuals who decreased in performance. In the Control group, Applicants found that, of those individuals who did show an improvement, the average gain was 19.7%. In the Placebo group, Applicants found that, of those individuals who did show an improvement, the average gain was close to the Control group at 30.8%. In the Test group, Applicants found that, of those individuals who did show an improvement, the average gain was more than triple the Control group and double the Placebo group at 63.8%. This information would indicate that the test dermal patch was having a beneficial effect on strength endurance. This improvement is dramatic in that the individuals tested had only used the test dermal patch for 10 minutes prior to the test.

[0209] Based on the data collected and the results obtained it was demonstrated that the invention (i.e., test dermal patch) provides a method for the improvement of athletic performance, and more particularly a means by which an individual may increase their net stamina/strength endurance output. The model utilized to evaluate the technology was a double-blind placebo controlled study, with 25 college athletes from the Troy State University football team volunteering to participate in this study. In this evaluation of strength endurance involving competitive athletes both baseline and comparative tests were performed prior to any other type of physical activity.

[0210] It was demonstrated that the group using the invention (i.e., test dermal patch) showed the highest percentage of improvement in strength endurance when averaging all members, the highest percentage of improvement in strength endurance when averaging only those members who showed an improvement, and the lowest percentage of decreased performance when averaging only those individuals who showed a decline in performance.

[0211] While a particular embodiment of the present invention has been described, it is to be understood that modifications will be apparent to those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit of the invention. The scope of the invention, therefore, is to be determined solely by the following claims.
