Accuracy over 70%
The accuracy of the Vitastiq vitamin tracker is well over the established target of 70%, shows the new clinical study. The aim of the study was to define the exactness of the Vitastiq readings.
About Clinical study
Conducted over the course of 5 months, the study included 45 volunteers, 3 visits to the measuring premises, and altogether 393 Vitastiq readings. For the purpose of this study, the readings for 12 vitamins and minerals obtained using Vitastiq were compared to blood tests results that were obtained by commonly used analytical methods. The blood test was chosen for comparison as one of the most prevalent ways to assess vitamin and mineral concentration.
The clinical study was co-financed by the Operational Programme Competitiveness and Cohesion, in the context of the EU Structural and Investment Funds. It was performed by Vizera www.vizera.eu, a Slovenian clinical research organization which specializes in design and implementation of clinical trials for nutraceuticals and medical devices. The documentation preparation and following study execution and evaluation were completed during the period between May 2017 and November 2017. The summary of the Clinical evaluation of the accuracy of the Vitastiq device for tracking vitamin and mineral trend in the human body is available HERE.
“We are, of course, happy with the outcome and pleased to have done a comprehensive and a thorough study that involved expert organizations from Germany and Slovenia,“ Tomislav Maricevic, Vitastiq managing director, said.
Vitastiq is based on the methodology called Electroacupuncture according to Voll (EAV). EAV uses the electrical resistance of the skin at acupoints to indicate the body’s health imbalances.
EAV has been used for decades in natural or integrative medicine clinics, as well as in pharmacies. It is based on dr. Reinhard Voll’s electroacupuncture research, and currently used throughout Europe by over 25,000 medical practitioners.
Vitastiq vitamin tracker, a non-invasive gadget, works with the Vitastiq app and it displays the nutrient readings on the smartphone. The difference between Vitastiq and traditional EAV devices lies in its design and usage of the latest technology.
