The BodyScan 2010 is no longer available as Phazx Systems Inc. have ceased to trade.
The Bionetics Phazx BodyScan 2010 (the BodyScan) uses biofeedback to monitor the flow of energy through the body. The BodyScan is then able to regulate the energy flow along the acupuncture meridians to the organs, in a similar way to traditional Chinese medicine. The energy flow of a particular client, as deduced by the Body Scanning, correlates with his or her degree of health and wellness. The developers of this device claim that the BodyScan's capacity to detect imbalances in energy flow allows the practitioner to identify stress imbalances on a sub-clinical level. Therefore, through the study of energy flow the BodyScan can detect potential ailments before they have time to physically emerge.
History of the BodyScan
The BodyScan and QXCI devices come from similar sources. In the 1950's, Dr. Reinhold Voll MD developed a simple electrodermal testing technique, which he christened electro-acupuncture according to Voll (EAV). Following on from this, whilst working at Stanford University in the 1970's, Dr. William Tiller discovered that the skin displays unique electrical reactions to various impulses, especially over the known acupuncture points. Based on Chinese acupuncture therapies, Phazx Systems Inc. developed the BodyScan 2010 to monitor the "body's energy flow, stress of the meridians and cellular communication".
How the BodyScan works
The BodyScan uses silver-plated electrodes placed on the head, wrists and ankles to measure the response to micro-frequencies of thousands of substances. The BodyScan works on the basis of bio-feedback, recording voltage, frequency and current measurements, to infer a number of electrical properties between the electrodes, such as impedance. This principle allows the BodyScan to test over 6,000 substances in 52 categories, including homeopathic remedies, foods, herbs, trees, minerals, supplements, dental materials, amino acids, sarcodes, flower essences, chemicals and bacteria. Other devices, such as the F-Scan and QXCI machine provide the practitioner with similar information.
In addition to this multi-channel testing, the BodyScan includes a single channel stylus, hand-mass, harness, probe, wand and brass plate, for more specific measurement of organs and substances. The information gained via the BodyScan may then be used to aid the practitioner in the suggestion of possible rebalancing therapies or treatments for the patient's body.
The BodyScan was Dr. Bill Nelson’s preliminary device before he went on to develop the QXCI. The BodyScanning takes approximately 75 minutes, compared with 3 minutes for the same screening conducted by the QXCI, or 20 seconds for an even more comprehensive assessment on the NES Health ProVision System. These devices can help to suggest a useful treatment and screening program for the energy medicine practitioner.
