9. VoLL DiAGnosTiCs VOLL is a method of electropuncture meridional diagnostics. The examination is carried out under standard testing voltage of 1.7 V. The method enables: 1. To assess the functional state of twenty paired meridians and, indirectly, organs and systems of the human body related to these meridians. . To reveal pathology at early stages. 3. To select the most optimal treatment and examination regimen. 4. Repeated diagnostics enables to assess the dynamics of the dysfunctions revealed and effectiveness of treatment. This method is also intended for individual selection of biologically active substances, homeopathic preparations and medications. ATTENTION! The mode is intended for assessment of the functional state of internal organs and systems but not for diagnosing the disease. Examination can be carried out in the several ways: 1. Express-assessment of the functional state by end points of the meridians (enough for diagnostics at home) . Assessment of the functional state by control and other points of the meridians. 3.

Place the active point electrode in the projection of the measurement point and increase pressure with the electrode evenly until stable figures appear on the display. The same data will be displayed in the program on the “arrow” indicator and on the diagram. Recommended order of work: measure the CMP indexes; if the operator believes that some meridian should be examined in detail he/she opens the list of points for this meridian and carries out an additional examination. After that you can return to the CMP list and continue with diagnostics. You can move along the measurements table with help of mouse of with buttons Up, Down, Left, Right on the keyboard. By pressing Enter on the meridian you will open the list of points of this meridian. To return to the CMP list you can press Enter when the cursor is on the upper line with the sign “Up”. ATTENTION! The patient should hold the passive electrode in the fist opposite to the tested side (for instance, when testing the left hand or left foot the patient holds the passive electrode in his right hand). During the procedure you should not touch the patient with two hands simultaneously. After putting the active electrode on the examined point you should hold it until the moment of the automatic fixation of the result and cursor transfers to the next point. Maximum value “MAX=…” will be displayed on the LCD of the apparatus, and then the apparatus will take two measurements within interval of one second, showing the difference of the current and maximum values of the power

take measurements on all the points including the previously examined ones. New results will substitute the old ones. 9.4. Analysis of the Diagnostics Results The normal value is approximately 50-65 units. Values above 65 units are evidence of hyperfunction or inflammation; values below 50-30 units characterize hypofunction or degeneration state; below 0 units – atrophy state or full dysfunction. The difference between maximum and the following values (D1 and D2) should be no more than five units. If the difference is more than five units it means activation of the pathological processes in the organs belonging to this meridian. 9.5. Medical Testing and analysis of the results The first measurement of parameters is taken without a medication. Then a tested substance is placed in the circuit of the passive diagnostic electrode and repeated measurement in the same points is taken. Comparing the results obtained you can make conclusions how the substance tested influence the state of the meridians examined. If necessary you can continue testing with another substance. 1. To carry out a medical testing after taking measurements in the necessary points (background testing without a substance tested according to Voll) go to the tab Medical Testing (Fig. 9.5.1). . Indicate in the filters necessary number of substances tested (by default, there are three of them)

Put an active electrode on point In-Tan (Fig. 11..), which is situated in the middle line between eyebrows on the patient’s bridge of nose.

Fig. 11.2.2. In-Tan point Press the “PowER +” button of the apparatus or start button in the program – the process of determining of the testing voltage will be started, values of which are displayed in the lower right corner of the apparatus LCD; in the lower left corner you will see the value of the power going through the In-Tan point. There are bar charts showing the process of determining the Utest in the program to the right from the table with points. After determination of the testing voltage, its value will appear in the upper line of the apparatus LCD as “Ut=…”, in the lower line there is a value of the current power in microamperes. This will be an individual voltage for this very patient during this procedure. The apparatus is ready for diagnostics. ATTENTION! If the current does not reach the value of 10 uA, you will see a message “Low Power”. This means that you did not place the electrode on the In-Tan point, you should change of the position of the active electrode and repeat the procedure of determination of the individual testing voltage. After determination of the testing voltage you can start measuring in the point to which the cursor in the list points.

4. Select the necessary route with help of the button Route selection or in the Bioreper menu → Route selection. — Express route — a list of points for general assessment of the patient’s state. — By systems route — a list of points grouped by systems. The doctor himself can select the systems by which the diagnostics will be carried out. — full examination route — a list of all points. — Individual route — an examination route set in advance by the doctor’s demand. You can set an individual Route in the tab individual Routes. ATTENTION! Irrespective of selection of the initial examination route, the doctor can change it in the process of diagnostics. If the points measured before were not covered by the new route then measurements will be saved. For instance, if the diagnostics was carried out first by the first route and then by the second one (the measurement data for the first route will disappear from the LCD), if you press the button Save, the data will be saved for both routes. 5. Take the measurements. When taking the measurements the patient should hold the passive electrode in his fist on the side homolateral to the tested auricle. Place the active electrode on the necessary point on the auricle. It is necessary that pressures on the point were even, similar without the electrode sliding off the point. ATTENTION! It is not recommended to take measurements in the same point more than two times at a run. In figure 11..3 you can see a table of correspondence of the current values with the graphical interpreta-

11.3. Continuation of Diagnostics To continue the diagnostics, which was previously saved, press the button Continue Diagnostics. After all necessary measurements press the button save. You can take measurements on all the points including the previously examined ones. New results will substitute the old ones. 11.4. setting the Route You can set an individual route in the tab individual Routes (Fig. 11.4.1).

Fig. 11.4.1. Tab “Individual Routes” You can drag the points to the route one by one or in groups, by selecting the necessary points with shift or Ctrl button pressed. Before saving you should give each individual route a number or a name (Fig. 11.4.). The program enables saving five routes.

Fig. 11.4.2. Giving a name to the route ATTENTION! Irrespective of selection of the initial examination route, the doctor can change it in the process of diagnostics. If the points measured before were not covered by the new route then measurements will be saved. For instance, if the diagnostics was carried out first by the first route and then by the second one (the measurement data for the first route will disappear from the LCD), if you press the button Save, the data will be saved for both routes. 11.5. statistics In the program there is a possibility to compare the results of different diagnostics for one person, which enables the doctor to observe the patient’s state in the dynamics. For that, go to the statistics tab (Fig. 11.5.1).

For each point all the results are recorded in one line of the table. The results of later diagnostics are added to the line below. Thus, you can observe the dynamics of measurements for any auricular point. You can also print out the data of the statistics. ATTENTION! The list of points displayed is a fixed one and its order cannot be changed. The list presents all points of the auricular diagnostics. 11.6. Generating and Printing out the Report Data of the diagnostics can be displayed on the screen or printed out. For that: 1. Load the patient’s card and open the consultation for which you want to print out the report . Press the Report button and Report menu will be open (Fig. 11.6.1).
