For experimental test of the proposed mechanism, we would suggest experiments with biological objects used as sensors of characteristics of gravitational field via continuous recording of bioelectric current from gravitational receptor during rapid increase in speed of vertical shift of Earth's crust in active seismic zones.
Vodovnik and Karba [19], Hampton and King [20], and Nuccitelli [21] suggested that the endogenous bioelectric current of the wound has a regulatory role in the wound-healing process and that the use of exogenous electrical stimulation may mimic this endogenous current and improve wound healing.
Based on these finding, researchers have proposed that external ES may help healing through the simulation and enhancement of natural bioelectric currents [3,13,19-20].
Utilizing novel microarray technology, the company's eSensor 4800 biochip detects DNA targets by using the binding characteristics of DNA molecules and their corresponding change in bioelectric currents.
