BIO CHARGE

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field

 
 

PEMF therapy is effective because time-varying or PEMF create micro-currents in the body’s tissues. These micro-currents elicit specific biological responses depending on field parameters such as amplitude, frequency, and waveform. The body contains multiple electromagnetic fields with each tissue and organ having a unique electromagnetic signature.

One of the earliest usage of PEMF for therapeutic effect is treating fractures and bone healing. In modern medical practices, strap on portable PEMF devices are used widely in orthopedic field worldwide.

In CAMh (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health), Canada. Psychiatrists use PEMF to treat mental disorder symptoms such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Major Depressive Disorder and Anxiety.

In Paracelsus Clinic , Switzerland. Instead of using pharmaceutical drug after dental surgery. Dr Thomas Rau uses PEMF for pain management and wound healing purpose.

HISTORY

FDA Approvals

Safety Treatment Process

 

- 1979, the FDA cleared PEMF therapy in the form of electrical bone growth stimulators for use in treating non-union fractures. Subsequently, the FDA cleared PEMF therapy for failed joint fusion following arthrodesis, failed spinal fusion, and congenital pseudoarthrosis.

- 1987, the FDA formally “grandfathered” 510(k) marketing clearance to a high frequency PEMF device for adjunctive therapy in the palliative treatment of postoperative edema and pain in superficial soft tissue.

- 2008, the FDA cleared a PEMF device using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder in adult patients

Since the FDA cleared the first therapeutic PEMF device over 30 years ago, there have been no post marketing safety alerts issued for any of these devices.

INFORMATION

The Future of PEMF Therapy

 

The future of PEMF therapy is exciting given the findings of early research in a wide variety of health conditions. Such as:

-Schizophrenia

-Reduce Blood Glucose Levels

-Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

-Reduce Blood Viscosity

-Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

-Reduce Total Cholesterol and Triglycerides

-Alzheimer’s Disease

-Increase High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL)

-Parkinson’s Disease

-Accelerate Healing Of Damaged Brain Tissue

PEMF therapy and osteoporosis

The scientific evidence is accumulating regarding how PEMF therapy may one day gain FDA approval for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. PEMF therapy improves bone mineral density, increase growth of osteoblasts, and positively influence bone remodeling via cytokines, prostaglandins and cell growth factors
