[PEP-1 multichannel electronic apparatus for electropuncture]
Pep-1 is a 6-channel apparatus for electropuncture, produced in series. It is intended for the following purposes: determination of acupuncture points (AP) by the contact method; diagnosis of the state of different organs according to the value of assymetric currents having positive or negative polarities; for therapeutic action on APs by constant electrical current with definite polarity and frequency, and by alternating current pulses through epicutaneous electrodes or miniclamps connected with acupuncture needles (electropuncture and electroacupuncture), and finally, for therapeutic effect on APs by microelectrophoresis.
