electro-, electr-, electri-
(Greek > Latin: electric, electricity; from amber, resembling amber, generated from amber which when rubbed vigorously [as by friction], produced the effect of static electricity)
Electronics in our lives consists of numerous tools
Equipment which we use everyday relies on electronics to function including calculators, car controls, cameras, washing machines, medical scanners, mobile telephones, radar systems, computers; as well as many other applications or devices which are listed in this unit.
Electroacoustics is also used in sound broadcasting, sound recording and reproduction as well as ultrasonic flaw detection and technology.
The term was named for Dr. Reinhold Voll, who in 1939, started to apply electroacupuncture in his medical practice and in 1953, together with engineer F. Verner, started to develop his special method of electroacupuncture.Electroacupuncture, also known as "electroacupuncture according to Voll" (EAV), "electrodermal screening" (EDS), "bioelectric functions diagnosis" (BFD), "bio resonance therapy" (BRT), or "bio-energy regulatory technique" (BER), is a controversial alternative medicine method of using electrodiagnostic devices to diagnose and to treat "energy imbalance" often using homeopathic products, first used by Reinhold Voll by combining "acupuncture" with "galvanometer" (detects, measures, and determines the direction of a small electric current) in 1958.
Ions are atoms or a group of atoms that have acquired a net electric charge by gaining or losing one or more electrons.
Ions in the organism are universal participants in the bodily metabolism.
In particular, ions participate in the mechanisms responsible for the permeability of biological membranes, in the regulation of muscular contraction, and in the propagation of the excitation impulses within the nerve tissues.
2. Relief from pain by the application of low-intensity electric currents locally or through implanted electrodes.
It may involve stimulation of brain or spinal cord structures through indwelling electrodes, or stimulation of a peripheral nerve.
2. Chemical analysis using electrolytic techniques.
A cautery is an instrument or substance used to seal a wound or to destroy damaged or infected tissue by burning.
A neuron or neurone is an excitable cell specialized for the transmission of electrical signals over long distances.
2. The art or science of measuring the force or velocity of projectiles by using electricity.
2. A device for recording a person's gait or manner of walking.
