Here are a series of videos relating to Dr. Phillips.
Among his most recognized inventions are:
The FirsTemp ear thermometer

The ReBuilder for peripheral neuropathy (2002) when his father developed leg pain.
The Phillips Molluscum Treatment System
The Phillips Molluscum Treatment System (2001) when his granddaughter developed Molluscum Contagiosum and he did not like the invasive treatments offered. This technology was spun off and sold in 2009,
The GST System for the earlier Detection of Breast Cancer
The GST System for the earlier Detection of Breast Cancer (1976) when his wife developed breast lumps (finally determined not to be malignant).
The AcuPen for detecting and treating acupuncture meridians (1981) on a contract basis.
The Blazer newspaper burner (1985) so he could provide a 15 minute fire in his fireplace with just a newspaper.
The Blaster Fireplace Grate
The Blaster Fireplace Grate (1995) so he could maximize the heat, limit the amount of firewood needed and to light the fire with just a regular newspaper.
The Zoom Broom
The Zoom Broom (1994) so he could clean his patio effectively with less water. It sprayed water just under the brush and lifted the brush on the return stroke so that the tiny particles left behind did not stay onthe concrete. This lifting action also reduced the friction and made the chore very easy. The Zoom Broom is now used mostly by boat owners to clean their boats.
ReStore (1992) so he could offer a non-prescription alternative for his psychology patients suffering from non-clinical depression. Subsequently re-engineered ReStore to feed the nerves and to offer a 4-5 hour boost in energy and mood enhancement. This prooduct is now used allover the world for neuropathy patients as well as healthy people who need to be able to focus on a project at will withour prescription drugs.
Liquid Benfotiamine (2003) to help patients with a deficiency in certain B bvitamins that could be absorbed transcutaneously by spraying directly on the feet or hands. Taking benfotiamine orally is helpful, but in older patients with compromised digestive systems, not all the b vitamin can be guaranteed to reach the feet. Spraying it directly on the feet allows the patient to deliver it directly to the aflicted extremity. The challange was to remove the smell and discoloration thae benfotoiamine caused with other commercial products.
Phillips Fiber to promote bowel health (2003).
This was a collection of gently fiber products derived from bananas and carrots with the digestive enzymes neccesary to break them down included.
Silver Skin to accelerate skin healing (2002) for Molluscum patients. this product is liguid, and then dries to provide a physical barrier to bacteria to avoid secondary opportunistic bacterial infections. It works very well as part of a first aid kit.
Silver Conductive Socks
Silver Conductive Socks for neuropathy to deliver the healing signals of the ReBuilder without the need for the twin compartment footbath to enhance patient compliance.
Silver Conductive Gloves
Silver Conductive Gloves for neuropathy (2003) to treat carpel tunnel, and to treat neuropathy in the hands.
Prostate Plus for prostate health (2002) to protect himself from the disease.
Cooling Cream for neuropathy

Molluscum Conductive Gel
Molluscum Conductive Gel (2002) for Molluscum patients.
Silver Paste (2003) to act as a conductive medium for the Healing Pen.
Silver Conductive Spray
Silver Conductive Spray (2003) to disinfect surfaces like toilet seats, toys, etc for Molluscum patients. Today this is used to spray on the conductive garments used with the Rebuilder.
Molluscum bar soap
Molluscum bar soap (2002) for Molluscum patients. since most patients were children he shaped the soap into a ginger Bread Man.

Zit Zapper (1988) Initial research device for his teen age daughter's acne. The devide worked, but its size was unweildly. He later on miniturized it.
Hot Rock automobile foot warmer
Hot Rock automobile foot warmer (1989) to pre-heat a brick inside the house and then take it to the car to provide instant heat for the feet when he was living in Vermont and dealing with very cold weather. He found that the short commute to his ofice did not allow enought time for the car to warm up enough to provide heat to his feet. this device plugged into the accessory outlet to power the fan that blew cold air over the hot brick and directly onto his feet.
Kitty Ship automatic cat box cleaner (1998) when he got tired of cleaning his cat's litter box. the device automatically used gravity (no motors) to allow the heavy feces to drop through the cone shaped box to collect in a baggie below for easy removal.

Face Lifter electronic face lift device (2004) that was a prototype of muscle stim to strengthen sagging muscles in the face.
Back ReBuilder for lower back spasms (2004) to extend the use of the ReBuilder to lower back problems. The EMS portion of the signal causes the muscles to relax, thus allowing blood flow through the muscle to help flush out the toxins, such as lactic acid that can exercerbate pain.
Silver Mouthwash(2006) for Molluscum patients.
AcnePen for teen age acne (2007) He developed this device for his teen aged grand children.
Electronic Arthritis System

Electronic Colic Collar
Electronic Colic Collar for horses with colic (2004) after his daughter's horse died from colic. It is an electrical, non-invasive device that has a collar around the neck and another around the tail that induces the horse's brain to release endorphins to relax the spasms in the gut.
Silver Water (2008) a silver ion infused distilled water product for infections.
Phillips Oxygen Water
This is an H2O2 solution that can be added to drinking water that releases oxygen into the bloodstream via the digestive system to augment the oxygen derived from the lungs.
Phillips Multivarient Evoked Potential Device for Lung Cancer (circa 2001)
Phillips Multivarient Evoked Potential Device for Lung Cancer (circa 2001) when his father developed lung cancer. Completely resolved his lung cancer when used concurrently with the administration of SilverWater, via an inhaler or cool mist vaporizer. One of a kind prototype
