Abstract
(EN)
Devices and methods for generating and applying stimulated acupuncture needles to one or more acupuncture points on a body of an individual suffering from one or more ailments using magnetic fields, The acupuncture device is configured for generating magnetic fields to stimulate acupuncture without using human manual manipulation. The acupuncture device may comprise a control unit and one or more acupuncture needle stimulation units. Each one or more acupuncture needle stimulation unit is functionally connected to the control unit by a cable or lead. The control unit may include a variable frequency generator configured to deliver various power levels, direct voltages, or a combination of various power levels and direct voltages to the acupuncture needle stimulation units, alone or in combination with other stimuli.

L'invention porte sur des dispositifs et des procédés pour générer et appliquer des aiguilles d'acupuncture stimulées à un ou plusieurs points d'acupuncture sur le corps d'un individu souffrant d'une ou plusieurs affections à l'aide de champs magnétiques. Le dispositif d'acupuncture est configuré pour générer des champs magnétiques pour stimuler l'acupuncture sans utiliser de manipulation manuelle humaine. Le dispositif d'acupuncture peut comprendre une unité de commande et une ou plusieurs unités de stimulation d'aiguille d'acupuncture. Chaque unité de stimulation d'aiguille d'acupuncture ou plus est fonctionnellement connectée à l'unité de commande par un câble ou un fil. L'unité de commande peut comprendre un générateur de fréquence variable configuré pour délivrer divers niveaux de puissance, des tensions directes ou une combinaison de divers niveaux de puissance et de tensions directes aux unités de stimulation d'aiguille d'acupuncture, isolément ou en combinaison avec d'autres stimuli.
