AIMS The electrical point stimulation system (P-STIM) reflects a new, miniaturized system for pain therapy through ear acupuncture. For this reason, ultrathin needles were applied at the ear. The needles stimulate the acupuncture areas at the ear using electrical impulses, which come from a little generator applied behind the acupunctured ear. METHODS This study describes continuous, non-invasive measurements of near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and multidirectional transcranial Doppler… CONTINUE READING
