A Triple-blind crossover clinical trial

Dr. Lisa Tully

Dr. Lisa Tali received a PhD in Pharmacology and Toxicology from Indiana University School of Medicine. Dr. Tali has published many papers in peer-reviewed medical journals and published his research results in international academic seminars. During the postdoctoral period, Dr. Tali transferred from medical academic research to comprehensive medicine. In the past ten years, she has participated in many international medical conferences to evaluate low-cost and effective health care.
Currently, Dr. Tali is a member of the scientific advisory committees of several companies and non-profit organizations, and the founder of the Institute of Energy Medicine. The mission of the Institute of Energy Medicine is to evaluate vibration medicine technology and its therapeutic effects.

IRB (Institutional Review Board) statistician approved to conduct a triple-blind crossover clinical study for the cprime chip.

Background

Overview

The IRB (Institutional Review Board) of the University of Arizona approved to test the effects and influence of cprime chip technology on flexibility, strength, balance and endurance of 18 healthy subjects through a three-blind crossover clinical study

Methods

A preliminary study conducted in the Watts Up laboratory of the University of Colorado Boulder College involved 18 healthy subjects (11 males and 7 females), aged between 27-59 years, without history of disease, pregnancy records, or drugs. Or drinking history, all subjects are in good health and do not have a high level of physical fitness.
The following flexibility and balance tests and ten different strength and endurance tests were used as benchmark measurements. In the benchmark test, the subjects wore Active (with chip) bracelet or Placebo (without chip) bracelet for the second test.

1. Strength Test

A. Digital hydraulic handle type grip strength meter

The subject gripped the handle with maximum strength with each hand. When tested, the arms were at right angles and the elbows were close to the side of the body. If necessary, the handle of the grip strength meter can be adjusted-the fixed end of the handle should be located on the first metacarpal bone (the heel of the palm), and the handle should be located in the middle of the limbs. The subject gripped the grip strength meter with the maximum isometric force and held it for 5 seconds. Take two measurements for each hand and record the highest value.

B. Repeat the test to the maximum value to measure the maximum strength of the biceps

The subject used the free weight of 5 pounds in the dominant arm to do a biceps curl, and then increased the weight by 5 pounds each time, until the subject was unable to lift the weight correctly, so as to obtain the maximum weight of the biceps. If the subject is unable to lift this weight, use 2.5 pounds as the incremental weight, confirm the maximum weight that can be lifted, and record this weight.

C. The maximum number of sit-ups and push-ups that can be done in 30 seconds

The subjects pressed their feet on the ground, bent their legs, and did as many sit-ups as possible within 30 seconds. Record this value. After resting for 5 minutes, lean against the wall, knee-support or toe-support in the same way to do push-ups. Do all the tests in the same way and record the maximum number of times within 30 seconds.

D. 5-minute riding muscle strength test: the fastest speed, power, and the fastest speed and the power generated per kilogram.

The subject wears a dynamometer and rides on a stationary bicycle at the fastest speed for 5 minutes. Record its maximum speed, power, and maximum speed and peak power per kilogram.

2. Flexibility Test

The subject sits on the ground against the wall, puts both feet against the extension board, stretches both hands towards the measuring device, and stretches the hands as far away as possible. Take 3 stretches and record the maximum value.

3. Balance Test

The subject closed his eyes, spread his arms out, and stood on one leg. Take turns touching the nose with the index fingers of both hands. Record the length of time before the foot hits the ground.
