- Oberon (device)
Oberon or Biolaz - Oberon, or Oberon nls is a purported computer diagnostics device invented by Russian - Ukraine researchers health research center "Alians-d".
Oberon is a descendant of the original
Electroacupuncture according to Voll(EAV) device invented in 1958 by German physician Reinhold Voll, combining Chinese acupuncture with the measurement of galvanic skin response. It is inspired by the work of Albert Abrams, Royal Raymond Rifeand Helmut Schimmel.
According to its inventors, Oberon “allows diagnosing not only pronounced pathological processes, but also the earliest forms of the diseases or predisposition to them,” however it “does not belong to the class of medical equipment and consequently does not have to be registered with the committees for certification and licensing of medical-purpose equipment.”
According to Dr. Stephen Barrett, co-founder of the
National Council Against Health Fraud, devices of this type "are used to diagnose nonexistent health problems, select inappropriate treatment, and defraud insurance companies. The practitioners who use them are either delusional, dishonest, or both." [cite web
