The Yong Loo Lin Medical School in the Faculty of Medicine at the Singapore National University. It was founded before the other two medical schools, The Duke – NUS Medical College and the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, and it is the oldest medical school in Singapore. It has several distinguished alumni, including the Malaysian Prime Minister, the Singapore President, the First Malay female doctor and influential Malaysian and Singaporean politicians.
NUS Medicine created the latest Bio Ionic Currents Electromagnetic Pulsing Systems or Biceps technology to activate muscle mass cells in older people who are too weak for exercise.
In proving the effectiveness of their system in Singapore (not merely muscles could get the boost from Biceps, and the new technology helps build stronger muscles, both Dec 18), the scientists behind Bio Ionic Currents or Biceps hope.
Most devices generating energy are available on the market under various brands. These have been used in Asia, the U.S., the UK, and Australia.
In theory, these devices produce micro-currents and their related micro-magnetic fields. These micro-currents and nano-magnet fields normalize the cell’s inner malfunction and promote healing.
Doctors licensed with the Medical Council of Singapore are officially barred from using such devices in the treatment of patients whose diseases do not meet the standard proven medical therapy criteria.
The reason given by the Health Ministry is that good energy response is anecdotal and there is no clinical evidence. Doctors who have used these devices were cautioned not to use them, although patients had advantages. Ironically, non-healthcare professionals may use these devices to treat their customers.
Ideally, if the work is strong, several chronic conditions can be treated successfully, apart from diabetes and weak muscles, particularly of the skin, such as atopic dermatitis, allergy, autoimmune diseases, and others.
