What causes pain in joints?
Between our bones are cushions of cartilage, which prevent grinding of the bones. When the layers of cartilage wear out, the bones begin to grind against each other, causing extreme pain. Under normal circumstances, the body replaces cartilage under control of tiny electrical signals. These electrical signals are created inside our body. Due to diseases -e.g. osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, aging or injury- the normal replacement of cartilage is disturbed, causing pain and inflammation.
How does PEMF reduce pain in joints?
Pulsating electromagnetic fields influence cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Increased calcium transport stimulates the repair and growth of cartilage while at the same time decreasing pain dramatically.
How does PEMF relieve back pain?
PEMF has proven to be very effective including for osteoporosis treatment. Due to improved blood supply oxygen levels increase, activating and regenerating cells. Resulting in improved calcium transport and better absorption of calcium in the bones and simultaneously decreases pain dramatically. In addition increase of bone density, results in improved fracture healing and less risk of breaking bones.
Why is back pain so prevalent?
Due to ‘brittle’ bones osteoporosis patients often suffer from very painful micro-fractures in the vertebrae of the spine. Already after a few weeks of Curatron treatments, a high level of pain relief is obtained, which is explained by the closing of these micro-fractures.
Sports injuries? Can PEMF Help?
We clearly see a dramatic reduction in pain and inflammation in treatment for sports injuries. Swelling is reduced fast and PEMF stimulates the body to repair damaged tissue and speeds up the healing process.
What are the side effects of PEMF?
This is the beauty of PEMF: there are no side effects. Sometimes the patient might feel some tingling due to improved circulation but this is no contraindication. Some people have a nice euphoric warm and comfortable feeling during the therapy session.
Some Miscellany
What experience is there with PEMF?
This technology has undergone many scientific clinical trials worldwide. Tens of thousands of patients have been treated successfully. Of the treated patients, a very high success rate is reported, creating a dramatic improvement in their quality of life.
Will bone density increase?
A study at the Pacific Health Research Institute in Honolulu was designed to provide concrete data on the restoration of bone mass in post-menopausal females. Bone density rose with an average of 5.6%. At the university of Graz in Austria a similar study clearly showed an increase in bone density after one year of around 6%. These results make all the difference in functioning in good health or suffering with an increasing risk for spontaneous fractures. The proportionate increase in fracture risk is directly related to decreased bone density.
How can it assist in bone non-union and fracture healing?
PEMF has been proved to be very effective for healing of delayed bone non-union and for improved fracture healing. It has shown to be beneficial in case of problematic fractures and fractures with a large gap. Treatment can also be performed in case there are implants at site.
What about wound healing?
Pulsing electromagnetic fields improve peripheral circulation and oxygenation. This causes better transport of nutrients and improves wound healing.
Sports injuries? Can PEMF Help?
We clearly see a dramatic reduction in pain and inflammation in treatment for sports injuries. Swelling is reduced fast and PEMF stimulates the body to repair damaged tissue and speeds up the healing process.
How is the system beneficial for Health & Fitness?
The computer controlled parameter settings *with lower energy levels* contributes to optimal energy regulating and health enhancing effects in a natural way. Normalization of membrane potential and improved metabolism is obtained supplying to the cells the optimum amount of energy contributing to general fitness and strength. Protein synthesis is increased by improved regeneration and disposal of waist materials is stimulated and the natural immune system activated. The overall energy level improves, health is stabilized and fitness increases. It is an ideal way to maintain good health!
Mostly Tech Stuff
What the heck is a Spark Gap System?

A Spark Gap system is using very, very old technology and should be avoided as all spark gaps eventually fail. Like the spark plugs in your car’s engine, each time the gap fires then a small amount of material is eroded from the electrodes of the spark gap. When a spark gap fails, and it will fail, you are looking at expensive and unnecessary downtime. Don’t buy one!


What's the difference between Hummer and Ringer
We tend to downplay the word Hummer as it’s really not descriptive enough. I’m not sure who coined the words, Hummer and Ringer. We tend to think of Real PEMF and Impulse. Take a look <<HERE>> for details on those technologies.
What is Impulse Technology
Many people use the term Ringer for Impulse Technology. This may not be a misnomer but I believe it fails to describe the technology in the same way that Impulse does, so I choose to use the term Impulse. The Curatronic FLASH unit is an Impulse Technology System. Please visit <<HERE>> for details on Impulse Technology
What is REAL PEMF Technology?
REAL PEMF is defined as PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) where the system or device creates a true or real pulse of magnetic energy or field. Impulse, Ringer or Pulse systems do not do this. They create a series of spikes of energy and the individual pulses contain am unlimited and unpredictable frequencies. You will find more detail <<HERE>>
Why Is Frequency Important?
Virtually all serious studies of PEMF have shown that a frequency or frequencies below 50 Hz are the most effective. Intensity and frequency go hand in hand to provide the two most important factors associated with Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMFT). As someone said, like love and marriage, you can’t have one without the other! Please visit <<THIS PAGE>> for more detail.
Why is Intensity so important.?
PEMF therapy can only be effective if the field strength of the pulsing electromagnetic signal is sufficiently powerful to penetrate deep enough inside the cells and bones to cause the desired effect. In order for this to happen the applied energy levels must be sufficiently high, otherwise only a minimal and superficial effect will occur.

The answer to this question should be obvious to all readers. One needs intensity to obtain reasonable penetration. Low-intensity systems simply do not penetrate well at all. See <<THIS PAGE>> to learn a lot more.

What's this Speed of Induction all about?
First, let’s dispel the myth that square waves really exist. All square waves are trapezoidal. That is to say that that it always takes time to move from no intensity to some intensity. From a human perspective, we think of instantaneous rise but that really never happens. In physics, there are several terms which mean the same or similar things, some of these are ‘rate of rise’, dB/dT (Change in Intensity over Time) and for us, we say Speed of Induction. Visit <<THIS PAGE>>, it explains a lot more!
Waveform? Square? Sine? Should I care.
Absolutely! The waveform created by the PEMF system is extremely important. We use a square wave gated sine wave and we explain that on <<THIS PAGE>>
