Have you heard of this allergy tester?

Could anyone enlighten me on this? I have heard of allergy testing using a Vega machine (though I don't know what Vega stands for).

I have just discovered several other kinds of Vega machine, including a lathe used by Ferrari to make cars, and a company making lights for harbour entrances and radar equipment in NZ, but I think these are irrelevant.

A patient tells me she has had her renal stones shattered by a Vega machine. This does not sound like Vega allergy testing to me ­ it sounds more like lithotripsy by ultrasound.

Has there been an advance in Vega that is beyond my knowledge ?
