How long has Microcurrent technology been around?
The discovery that electrical current in the body is disrupted by wounds occurred In the 1830’s when Carlos Matteucci proved that an electrical current was generated by injured tissue, but it wasn’t until 1843 that the existence of wound currents was first experimentally observed by Dubois-Reymond. Nearly 100 years later, the Japanese would rely upon this discovery to use Microcurrent on its soldiers during WWII, as Japanese physicians found that small electrical currents promoted the mending of non-healing bone fractures, reducing the time it took to heal. The first commercial device outputting microcurrent stimulation was the Dermatron, developed in the 1960’s by Dr. Reinhold Voll of Germany. Mainstream use would eventually find the technology treating a variety of nonunion fractures and bone implants as an accepted procedure among orthopedic surgeons. The technology further progressed to treating pain in burn patients and sports injuries. Medical doctors, physical therapists, acupun
