Experimental investigation of semiconductor thermoelectric device for local thermal effect on reflexogenic zones of human organism

Ismailov T. A., Hazamova M. A.


Abstract
The paper considers the use of solid-state thermoelectric devices for physiotherapeutic procedures (local heating and cooling of feet). The experimental test facilities for study of operation of the investigated device are described, and the results of the experiments on the determination of temperature characteristics of the device are given. It is found that it is practicable to use an accelerated method of stabilization of operation of the device, using six thermal modules with feed current 5 A. The time of stabilization of operation is 1- minutes for cooling and 5 - 6 minutes for heating operation.
