I don't want to get another infraction--especially since I'm not sure what I did wrong before? (I couldn't find any rules saying that a patient referring to a conversation with a professional violates the rules.) The rules said to send questionable posts to Registration/Membership, so here I am.
Here's what I want to post. Please let me know if it's OK.

I can't predict future steps Wicab is planning to do, but if no commercial interest - no product.

I called W***b, the manufacturer, today. At this moment, I don't think they're planning to discontinue production (at least not yet). The initial impression from the trials was that the device does provide improvement, but it may not be statistically significant enough. Let's keep our fingers crossed and see what the statisticians say.
My mom asked if the BP could affect heart rhythm or other "electical" processes in the brain/body. Anybody ever heard anything about the possibility of this??? What is the longest continuous stretch of time that anyone has used the device daily?
