Stress Test Experiments with the
In this experiment, we tested subjects with a test meter that measures a person's stress
level. Questions were asked, and the streess reading was observed by a trained 'meter reader'. Results were
compared to when a sunbect was with and without the Quwave Harmonizer.
What is an E-Meter?
The device is known as a "Hubbard Electrometer", an "Electro-Psychometer", or "E-meter".
An E-meter consists of two metal probes that are held in each
hand which are connected to a measuring device with a moving needle that indicates the human
The meter measures subtle changes in a person's electrical conductivity. The subject person
being analyzed holds an electrode in each hand. When the subject is asked a question, the
examiner watches the meter needle for a fluctuation. Different types of responses are interpreted as
indicating different things about the person's mental or spiritual state.
Who Invented the E-Meter?
The E-meter was invented in the 50's by a chiropractor named Volney Mathison, and was originally
called the Mathison Electropsychometer. He used the device with his patients in order to investigate their
"inner" or psychological problems.
The meter was then improved and patented in the 60's by L. Ron Hubbard as a "Device for
Measuring and Indicating Changes in the Resistance of a Human Body" and called the Hubbard Electrometer as he used
it in his Scientology Practice.
How does the E-meter work?
The meter measures changes in the body's electrical resistance. These changes are caused by
chemicals in the blood, such as adrenalin, and by nerve signals. The meter shows whether a question
or directive makes you feel stressed or relaxed. The meter needle simply shows whether your body is
experiencing an electrochemical change. The electronic foundation of an E-meter is a Wheatstone bridge.
It's basically a crude lie detector device.
Some claim that with an experienced examiner, the E-meter can show what a person is thinking.
While in reality the meter simply shows whether your body is experiencing a change in stress level. Thus the meter
is excellent in evaluating the stress level of a subject when exposed to a series of personal questions.
QuWave Stress Tests
For the purpose of our experiments, we used this meter as a stress level detector. By asking the
subject a series of questions, we examined the response on the meter needle.
The device meter registers the changes in galvanic skin response as personal details are
discussed - and this is directly related to the level of stress the person is experiencing at that given
This test was performed on the subject without a QuWave, and then repeated with the subject
wearing a QuWave. The results show that when the subject is wearing a QuWave Harmonizer, his stress level is
The first photo session (on the left) is taken without wearing the QuWave, note how high the
stress level is on the meter. The second set of photos is taken when the subject was wearing the QuWave Harmonizer
(on the right). Note how much reduced the stress level becomes when wearing the QuWave.
Without Harmonizer ............ With QuWave
The photos clearly show a significant reduction in the
subject's stress level after he put on the QuWave Harmonizer (on the
