Foot reflexology is the practice of stimulating points on the feet to improve health. An electrical foot reflexology stimulator has been developed on the basics of foot reflexology massage and electroacupuncture. The device consists of a battery and a boost converter, the control-electronic and n electrodes. It is developed for the application of a changing current flow through the human body within the range of the foot reflex zones. Because of various control possibilities the proposed device is very flexible. A software controls the user parameters and offers an independent current control mode. This is very important for the user's safety. The possibility to change frequency, current or waveform in a wide range is a good argument for medically skilled and technically unskilled persons to use this device. This helps to establish new alternative medicine methods which have no or less interaction to other medicines.
