Aim of study (acc. to author)
continuous for 26 min
(10.5-13.5 cm deep)
A phone positioning system (headband, adjustable arm, and phone holder) made of non-metallic plastic materials held the phone on the
subject's dominant-hand side so that its longitudinal axis followed an imaginary line from the entrance to the ear canal to the corner of the mouth, in accordance with the "touch position" of CENELEC standard EN 50361 .
sham exposure was conducted.
session lasted 26 min: 13 min in supine rest condition followed by 13 min in stand condition.
