A therapeutic diathermy applicator is proposed which minimizes the common problem of burning of skin patient. The heat distribution arising as a result of unwanted capacitive effects is modeled as a manifestation of ‘conservative’ energy. A specific spatial characteristic of RF stimulation is determined and incorporated into the design of the applicator in order to achieve these goals.
