Zapper for Electrotherapy
(Summer Circuits 2010 article)
A zapper is a device that is often used in alternative medicine. This device is a so-called electronic bioresonance pulse generator, which generates a square wave at a particular frequency. This signal is applied to the human body via hand or wrist electrodes, causing a minute current to flow through the body. This is claimed to kill bacteria, viruses and other parasites in the body, and to boost the immune system.
