TTFields are generated via pairs of transducers arrays placed directly on the skin’s surface in the region surrounding the tumor.
TTFields therapy is delivered using non-invasive, insulated transducer arrays that are placed directly on the skin in the region surrounding the tumor.
TTFields therapy is unlike previous applications of electricity in medicine. Specifically, TTFields therapy does not deliver any electric current to the tissue. TTFields therapy does not stimulate nerves or muscles or heat tissue. TTFields therapy creates an alternating electric field within the tumor that attracts and repels the charged components of the cells during mitosis.
TTFields therapy is delivered using non-invasive, insulated transducer arrays that are placed directly on the skin in the region surrounding the tumor. The complete delivery system includes a portable electric field generator, transducer arrays, rechargeable batteries and more. The therapy is designed to be worn continuously throughout the day and night. The delivery system is portable and is designed to allow patients to go about their daily activities while receiving treatment.
