The probe was used to test some chosen characteristics points. The currents were recorded using BE 100-04 apparatus (patented by Biophysics Research srl, Rome, Italy), set for the appropriate measuring mode. All the measurements were done holding the probe in an upright position, at an angle of about 80 degrees with the skin, with the tip in contact with the acupuncture point to be tested. The majority of tests took place during the day between 9am and 6pm. Table 1 and Figure 11 show the results of measuring for 8 times the currents emitted by Point A at different moments during the day. All the indicated currents are in nA and the table also provides the standar deviation (SD) and the mean value (MV). Table II shows the results of measuring the currents emitted by Point A in 12 different subjects for 10 times with a time step of 1 minute. Figure 12 illustrates the measurements on the 12 subjects.
