300 children with a variety of digestive disorders were treated with the SY-201 Qigong Machine. All had several signs of digestive qi-energy deficiency. The listed sym toms are such signs. Only those children who exhibited several of the signs were included in the study. 121 of these children had sustained sym toms for between two weeks and four years, while 179 had sustained sym toms from two to six years. Treatment consisted of a lying the Qigong Machine to the lower back for two ten minute periods for six days. The following is a summary of the results:

This study shows the importance of digestive qi-energy. The statistical analysis of the results shows a statistical significance at the .001 level.
It cannot be concluded from this study that the SY-201 Qigong device is appropriate for any specific digestive disorder. Rather, the indication is that it is effective where digestive qi-energy is deficient.
