The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has ordered the marketers of the ONDAMED System to stop claiming that it can diagnose or treat disease and to stop saying that it is a biofeedback device.

The system consists of a base station plus a hand-held device that is claimed to scan the body and treat the gamut of disease by detecting and correcting “vibrations” associated with organ dysfunction. The ONDAMED is one of dozens of bogus low-voltage “scanners” used by thousands of chiropractors, acupuncturists, dentists, “holistic” physicians, veterinarians, self-styled “nutritionists,” and various unlicensed individuals. The FDA has banned importation of some of these devices (including the ONDAMED) into the United States and warned or prosecuted several marketers. However, no systematic effort has been made to drive them from the marketplace.
