The wearer of the ElectRx will be monitoring the biological data and the wearer will be stimulated by the exclusive wearing tool or something to increase the natural healing power without ingesting drugs and the like. In addition, ElectRx is the minimumInvasionHe can give a big impact to the health aspects of the wearer.
