Chronic wounds treated with very low electrical currents heal more quickly than they do with standard treatments, a new study suggests. Researchers studying the ElectroRegenesis Therapy Device 
(ERTD) say it stimulates the body's natural ability to heal wounds related to amputations, long-term ulcers, diabetic lesions, circulation problems, paralysis and even advanced age. Several patients -- some of whom had had wounds for five years -- showed significant healing in just one or two sessions.
