Brief Summary:
Current stimulation induces microvascular dilation in human skin. The investigators aimed to study (1) whether the current vasodilation is amplified after two segmental current stimulation as compared to one stimulation; (2) whether this amplification relies on prostaglandin-sensitive mechanisms. A double-blind randomized placebo-controlled crossover trial is conducted in Angers, France.
