Abstract [en]

This report summarizes the background, development and testing of the Crystal Plaster (CP), which refers to a (crystal) patch in which tiny quartz crystals are the active part in reducing pains. The physical background is the piezoelectric property of bone, i.e. bone subjected to pressure variations generates an electric current. The opposite, the piezoelectric effect is also at work, which means that if bone is subjected to an alternating electro-magnetic radiation then the bone will respond by volume changes and corresponding mechanical stress. The piezoelectric crystals of the CP are in different ways interacting with the corresponding properties of the body. It would be possible to read out much more of the test results from the CP tests that were made in 2006-2007. In any case, the performed study shows clearly that the Crystal Plaster reduces nociceptive pains. We can see that the placebo effect is adding to the results but the test also shows a clear difference between the Placebo and the real Crystal Plaster in favor of the real CP.
