Participants sought: Can constipation be treated with gentle electrical stimulation?

If TES works for children, it might
work for adults as well.
We are investigating a new treatment for constipation called trans-abdominal electrical stimulation (TES) which involves placing four (4) sticky electrodes on the stomach and back where a gentle current passes between them. This has been shown to work in studies with children. We want to see if it works in adults as well. It involves using the device at home for an hour a day for 6 weeks. To be eligible, you must be female, aged between 18 and 75, have had constipation for more than 6 months, and live in Melbourne.
