Additional Information

Official title Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the BTL-9000 High Frequency Therapy for the Waist Circumferential Reduction
Principal investigator Iveta Hasova, MD
Description Prospective, randomized, blinded, two-arms study of waist circumferential reduction following 5 once-a-week treatments. One arm is the HFT group of 64 subjects who are treated with the BTL-9000 HFT and the other arm is the Placebo group of 38 subjects treated with the sham device. The objective of the study is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the BTL-9000 HFT treatment in achieving average post-treatment waist circumference reduction of 3 cm or greater across the waistline relative to the baseline assessment and of 1 cm or greater than the average waist circumferential reduction of the Placebo group.
