To determine if electrical stimulation on acupoints has any effect on hypertensive subjects.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Pilot Study Using Electrical Stimulation on Hypertension|
- Blood pressure measurements.
|Study Start Date:||January 2007|
|Study Completion Date:||June 2007|
All subjects will be assigned into control and experimental groups by a random table. The first 40 numbers in the first row will be used for the study. Subjects assigned with an odd number will be divided into the control group.
ROLE OF SUBJECTS Subjects in the experimental will receive Hans treatment for hypertension. No invasive procedures will be used for subjects in either the control and experimental groups.
This randomized controlled study will recruit hypertensive subjects into control and experimental groups using a random table. Only the subjects in the experimental group use Hans stimulation as a treatment for high blood pressure. The treatment regiment is discussed in the Treatment section in detail. The subjects in the control group will not
