Clinical Proof of Concept

Micro-current electrical stimulation has been used or studied for many different therapeutic applications. Studies have been conducted which demonstrate the efficacy of MCT for :-


Reduction in pain management scores with accompanying substantial reduction in serum levels of the inflammatory cytokines IL-1, IL-6 & TNF-X, and neuropeptide substance P. Beta - endorphin release and increase in serum cortisol
