The company says the study demonstrated that pain relief was greatest in the Actipatch group, followed by Tylenol, then the no-treatment group.
This study tells us nothing. Why wasn't there a true placebo arm, i.e., patients treated with an ActiPatch missing its battery? And the study wasn't blinded either, so patients knew the treatment they were receiving, which certainly skews the results of the subjective, patient-reported pain-relief scale employed in the study.
You know what they say: garbage in, garbage out.
If you're a believer of holistic, hocus-pocus, electromagnetic pain relief, then by all means, go buy an Actipatch and stick it where it hurts. (I'll prefer to pop some Tylenol, but that's just me.) But please, don't get involved with this stock, unless you get a thrill from investing in easily manipulated penny stocks with questionable management and impenetrable, unaudited and opaque financials.
