A personal care aide provides various services to a person who is unable to care for themselves on their own. These duties may include things like cooking food, picking up heavy objects, dressing, bathing, using the restroom, and performing simple housekeeping tasks.

Methods and Apparatus for Personal Care

InactiveUS20100217357A1Effectively cleanseEffectively rejuvenateCosmetic preparationsToilet preparationsEtiologyWrinkle skin
Methods, apparatus and systems for personal care, such as treatment of a skin or hair treatment surface, are disclosed. In some embodiments, a base device is configured to thermally modify (heat or cool) an applicator on a hand piece that can then be used to cleanse, treat and/or otherwise rejuvenate the treatment surface. The applicator can be formulated with a smooth or abrasive material that can absorb, be coated with or otherwise take up a variety of materials, such as liquids, lotions, gels or creams, which are suitable for application to the treatment surface. The base device may thermally modify the material that is then coupled to the applicator and applied to the treatment surface during treatment. Application of the applicator at the desired temperature to the treatment surface may, for example, stimulate deeper blood circulation, clear pores, diminishes or removes deep and fine wrinkles, accelerate acne clearing, treat blemished skin, decrease edema and erythema of the skin, and/or reduce puritis of various etiologies. The hand piece may comprise one or more secondary treatment elements, such as LEDs for photoactivation, electrodes for delivery of micro-currents or vibrating elements for rubbing or abraiding, in order to achieve additional activation of the treatment surface and/or of the thermally modified material coupled to the applicator, which may enhance or improve treatment.

Compositions comprising anionic functionalized polyorganosiloxanes for hydrophobically modifying surfaces and enhancing delivery of active agents to surfaces treated therewith

Disclosed are compositions and methods for treating and modifying surfaces and for enhancing delivery of active agents to surfaces treated therewith, wherein the compositions comprise siloxane polymers functionalized with pendant moieties comprising two or more anionic groups, at least one anionic group being a carboxy group. When applied to a suitable surface, the present composition forms a substantially hydrophobic coating of the anionic functionalized siloxane polymer on the treated surface. These polymers effectively deposit on surfaces that have cationic sites, which are capable of forming bonds or linkages with the anionic groups of the polymer. The treated surface becomes hydrophobic due to the deposition of the anionic functionalized siloxane polymer, which then imparts a variety of end use benefits to that surface such as ease of cleaning, soil release, stain removal and prevention, conditioning, etc. The anionic functionalized siloxane polymer further acts as a carrier to deposit active agents onto the surface and to improve retention and efficacy of the active agents on the treated surface. The present compositions are useful in a variety of applications including oral care, hair and skin care, personal care, cosmetics, and fabric and hard surface cleaning and conditioning.
