Experiments carried out previously focused on much larger devices and expensive that could be used exclusively in hospitals, but this new device has a mechanism to use at home easily. Scientists at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, tested the safety and efficacy of the device, in an experiment involving 200 volunteers, half of whom also received a placebo treatment. The experiment showed that 40% of patients had no pain after two hours of using the device and found that did not cause any serious side effects.
