Outline

Picorina is an electrical stimulation device specified for acupuncture treatments. Applied to the affected region where the needle is inserted to attain pain relief and ameliorate muscle atrophy symptoms. In order to prevent sudden changes in sensation, we have adapted a minute output control function (FINE mode) which enables treatment even in the highly sensitive areas of the body. It is equipped with a clip specifically developed for the needle electrode and allows for easy setup and sustainment. The clip is also adaptable for high pressure steam sterilization, making it very hygienic.
