A Study for Evaluating the SCIO Biofeedback Device's Ability to Increase Body Wellness After One 45-minute Session

2014-08-27 03:13:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of the study is to determine if one 45-minute treatment with the SCIO (Scientific Consciousness Interface Operations System) biofeedback device would show a change, and hopefully an improvement, on a person's Body Wellness indicators (Quality of Life Questionnaire, Energy Index Factor, Strength, Oxidation, Flexibility, Memory, pH, and VARHOPE scores (V=voltage, A=amperage, R=resistance, H=hydration, O=oxygenation, P=proton pressure and E=electron pressure), electrical measures within the device. For subjects in the control group, it is expected that there will likely be an improvement of approximately 5% in measured variables. That is, subjects in the control group will likely report some of the positive changes listed above for test group subjects. However, on average, any positive change in post-treatment measures for control subjects is expected to occur to a significantly lesser degree than for subjects in the test group.

Description

The objective of the Study is to determine if one 45-minute treatment with the SCIO (Scientific Consciousness Interface Operations System) biofeedback device would show a change, and hopefully an improvement, on a person's Body Wellness indicators as defined by the following introductions to each hypothesis. There are three (3) hypotheses that are the objective of this study and they are defined below as Hypothesis#1, Hypothesis#2 and Hypothesis#3.

Introduction#1: The body is an electrical process requiring volts and amps which conduct through resistance circuits to operate. All muscles are turned on by electrical impulse. Muscles themselves are magnetic using volts and amps for their operation. The brain is a massive collection of cells that have electrical activity that can be measured via the EEG (electroencephalography). The heart itself is the largest electro-magnetic engine and uses electrical impulses to influence the muscles of the heart to circulate blood. Most EEG (electroencephalography), ECG (electrocardiography) and EMG (electromyography) measures are only concerned with oscillatory properties and not so concerned with the volume or basic amperage of the circuit. The collective baseline of the circuit of EEG (electroencephalography), ECG (electrocardiography), EMG (electromyography) and GSR (galvanic skin response) measurements can give us a rating of the global body voltage, body amperage and skin resistance (V=voltage, A=amperage, and R=resistance respectively). There are norms of the V (voltage), A (amperage) and R (resistance) and certain people, due to stress or other factors, can have low V (voltage), A (amperage) and/or R (resistance).

Hypothesis#1: Our hypothesis is that by measuring and calculating the Voltage, Amperage and Resistance, and then administering one 45-minute treatment with the SCIO (Scientific Consciousness Interface Operations System) for stress reduction and electro-stimulation biofeedback, the Voltage, Amperage and Resistance can be rectified. Our scale is from 0-110 for the V, A and R measurements, so an improvement in these Body Wellness indicators is going towards the higher end of the scale.

Introduction#2: The collective inductance and capacitance changes in the body are a reflection of redox potential and can reflect hydration (H) and oxygenation (O) indexes.

Hypothesis#2: It is also the hypothesis of the study that these hydration (H) and oxygenation (O) indexes can be affected by one 45-minute treatment of stress reduction and the electro-stimulation biofeedback by the SCIO. Our scale is from 0-110 for the H and O measurements, so an improvement in these Body Wellness indicators is going towards the higher end of the scale.

Introduction#3: Irregularities in EEG, EMG, ECG and GSR can be corrected through guided electro-stimulation. The V and A are also greatly affected by the charge stability of the free protons and electrons, (negative charges and positive charges in the body), which collectively make up the proton pressure (P) and electron pressure (E). The acidity-alkalinity balance is an electrical measure of the amount of positive versus negative charged particles. This can be measured by the carbon based electrodes of the SCIO through electro-stimulation biofeedback.

Hypothesis#3: It is our hypothesis, that the proton pressure (P) and electron pressure (E) scores can be improved with one 45-minute treatment with the SCIO. The scale of normal P is 75 and the scale for normal E is 65 and the scores show an improvement in these Body Wellness indicators is if they change towards this number.

Together, these items of voltage (V), amperage (A), resistance (R), hydration (H), oxygenation (O), proton pressure (P) and electron pressure (E) form the term VARHOPE. These VARHOPE scores are essential for all body functioning, therefore our overall hypothesis is that within one 45 minute session, a measurable improvement in Body Wellness indicators can be achieved.
