FERREIRA, Letícia Simões et al. Ionic charge reduction technology (static charges) in the human body. Cad. Pós-Grad. Distúrb. Desenvolv. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.2, pp. 25-37. ISSN 1519-0307.

Postpolyelitis Syndrome (PPS) is a slow-progressing degenerative neurological disorder that is in the category of motor neuron diseases. PPS is characterized by the development of new neuromuscular symptoms such as: abnormal fatigue, new muscle weakness - both of the muscles that were originally affected and those that were not previously affected. Patients with inflammatory conditions, by stimulating the migration of electrical charges at sites of acute or chronic inflammation, show improvement in their pictures, by preventing "collateral damage" to healthy tissues in the vicinity of an injury. To evaluate a technology to reduce ionic loads in the impact of joint, muscular and cramp pain in patients with PPS. Twenty patients were randomly selected and randomly selected to form two groups with 10 subjects each. The Control Group (CG) used a pad with soap plates, but without ion technology for the treatment of pain due to cramps. The Intervention Group (GT) used a pillow with plates wrapped in soap with ion technology. Each patient was submitted to evaluations related to pain, cramp and quality of life. In both groups there was a statistically significant reduction in the frequency and intensity of cramps after 10 days of use of the cushion with or without ion technology. The ionic reduction technology used reduced the intensity and frequency of cramps in patients with PPS.
