This seems very interesting, but I would be somewhat skeptical. Couldn't I massage my stomach like that? Maybe not, we'll have to keep an eye on this thing. Good catch Spasman. Keep doing your investigations. I would think researchers could come up with a machine that is like an ultrasound machine where you would stick some pads on certain areas of your stomach and the electric charges would stimulate nerves that would promote colon movements? Seems reasonable.Also, I'm still waiting on the colon "pacemaker" to come out. Somebody will have to come up with something like that before I die? I mean they made one for the heart!

I'm very sensitive about the subject of colon pacing.I just can't beleive there is no trial on human rigth now.I think they're years from getting this kind of product on the market.I think one problem is to miniaturize the pacer or whatever.

Thanks Spasman for this post; the only thing is I don't know how to get more info from the website to look at, or for ordering. I have had something like this from a Chiroropracter; it consisted of paddles that emitted an electrical charge into the abdomen and additionally provided some massage. It was great and very effective and have considered buying a smaller version of this for hoem use but am just havenot followed up onit because the are Electrial Muscle Stimulating machines and I'mnot sure if the companmies would know it they work for constipation or not. If anyone knows more about this type of therapy it woudl be good to get more info. It makes good sense to think that electrical impulses to wake up nerves in the colon would help.

yes, the information on this machine is very interesting and thanks for posting it, Spasman. if there were actually a store close by where I could go buy this--or an online company with a good reliable reputation--you know, like gnc or penneys or something--I would save up the money and try it but I'm a little nervous about the israel/internet thing...

You won't find at your local store since the FDA want to put their nose in it.

Yes, and stores liek GNC sell large muscle vibrator/massages which can help. Saw something online last year called "vibrational therapy" for constipation. That's what the muscle vibrators and massaging does.
