Spread of illegal devices causes alarm

The Seattle Times, August 26, 2008
U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee has called for a congressional investigation into medical-device manufacturers and operators who use unproven "energy medicine" machines to exploit patients. Inslee said his request was in reaction to a Seattle Times investigation called "Miracle Machines." The series revealed how manufacturers and practitioners profit from treating people with the unproven machines, some of them potentially dangerous, others illegal. They have used these devices to misdiagnose diseases and divert critically ill people from life-saving care, as well as drain their bank accounts.
