CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. An apparatus for rehabilitating a tissue, the apparatus comprising:

a housing having an interior and an orientation member, the housing being adapted to move with respect to the orientation member;

an oscillator operatively positioned in the interior of the housing and capable of generating and imparting oscillations on tissue to be rehabilitated; and

indicia positioned on the orientation member to identify a direction of the oscillations.

2. The apparatus of claim 1, further comprising:

an accelerometer operatively positioned in the interior of the housing, the accelerometer being adapted to read a change the tissue to be rehabilitated; and a signal processor configured for receiving a signal from the accelerometer and determining a visco-elastic property of the tissue, wherein the signal processor reads a change in an amplitude signal generated by the accelerometer and the change in the amplitude signal correlates to a visco-elastic property of the tissue.

3. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the housing further comprises an adjustable casing at least partially enclosing the housing, the casing being adapted to expand to pretension the tissue prior to the oscillator imparting oscillations on the cells.

4. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the indicia comprises spaced apart marks.

5. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the indicia comprises spaced apart numbers.

6. The apparatus of claim 1, further comprising housing indicia positioned on the housing, wherein the housing indicia and the indicia on the orientation member are alignable to indicate an orientation of oscillations.

7. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the orientation member is rotatably positioned within a channel extending about a portion of the housing.

8. An apparatus for rehabilitating tissue, the apparatus comprising:

a housing having an interior and one or more housing indicia indicating a direction of treatment;

an oscillator operatively positioned in the interior of the housing and capable of generating oscillation treatments on the tissue to be rehabilitated; and

a controller in operative communication with the oscillator to control a characteristic of the oscillations.

9. The apparatus of claim 8, further comprising:

an accelerometer operatively positioned in the interior of the housing, the accelerometer being adapted to read a change in the tissue to be rehabilitated; and a signal processor configured for receiving a signal from the accelerometer and determining a visco-elastic property of the tissue, wherein the signal processor reads a change in an amplitude signal generated by the accelerometer and the change in the amplitude signal correlates to a visco-elastic property of the tissue; wherein pretensioning the tissue increases the delivery of therapy thereby increasing rehabilitation of the tissue.

10. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein the housing further comprises an adjustable casing at least partially enclosing the housing, the casing being adapted to expand to pretension the tissue prior to the oscillator imparting oscillations on the tissue.

11. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein the indicia comprises spaced apart marks.

12. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein the indicia comprises spaced apart numbers.

13. The apparatus of claim 1, further comprising an orientation member operatively coupled to the housing, the orientation member having orientation indicia that is alignable to the housing indica.

14. The apparatus of claim 13, wherein the orientation member is rotatablw within a channel extending about a portion of the housing.

15. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein the controller includes a display to display a characteristic of the tissue being rehabilitated.

16. The apparatus of claim 15, wherein the controller includes a display to display at least one selected from the group of a visual display, an audio display, or a combination of a video display and an audio display.

17. A method for increasing tissue volume, the method comprising the steps of:

providing a housing having an interior containing an oscillator operatively disposed therein capable of generating an oscillation therapy;

providing an orientation member coupled to a portion of the housing, the orientation member having an indicia thereon that aids a user in knowing a direction of the oscillation therapy during use;

rotating the housing with respect to the indicia on the orientation member to align the housing to a desired direction of therapy; and

activating a controller operatively coupled to the oscillator to impart an oscillation therapy to the tissue;

18. The method of claim 17, further comprising the steps of:

providing an accelerometer able to measure an amplitude signal response from the tissue;

characterizing, with a signal processor, the volume of the cells of the tissue on an attenuation of the amplitude signal response to the imposed controlled oscillations; and

controlling the controlled oscillation from the oscillator with respect to the amplitude signal response from the floor measured by the accelerometer.

19. The method of claim 17, wherein the housing has one or more housing indicia that is alignable to the orientation indicia.

20. The method of claim 18, further comprising the step of expanding at least a portion of the housing pretension the tissue being treated.
