Do PEMF Devices Work? (New Medical Study)

do pemf devices work?Over the past few years, the market for pulsed electromagnetic field machines has significantly expanded. By using naturally occurring electromagnetic waves, it has long been believed that these devices can provide lasting relief to individuals experiencing pain. 

Though PEMF devices have been approved by the FDA for more than a decade (originally approved in 2007), many in the industry have declared that additional studies are warranted. Speculators have wanted to not only know that PEMF devices are safe, but also that these devices are effective and capable of treating a wide range of different conditions.

The definitive study on PEMF devices was conducted at St. Joseph’s Health Care Centre in London, Ontario (Canada). The detailed and comprehensive study sought to test the effect that PEMF machines would have on individuals suffering from chronic pain and fibromyalgia.

In this article, we will explore this revolutionary study and discuss why it had a positive impact on the medical community. We will also discuss how the market for PEMF devices has notably evolved since this study was completed.

PEMF Study Background

Fibromyalgia is a common condition that tends to affect people who are 40 years or older (though it can affect younger people as well). The symptoms of fibromyalgia include “widespread muscle and joint pain and fatigue.” Because these symptoms can come from other underlying conditions, it is important to speak with your doctor and receive a formal diagnosis before proceeding with any treatment.

The study, which had 32 final participants (aged between 28 and 81 with a mean of 54 years), sought to determine if PEMF devices can actually be used to treat fibromyalgia and related conditions. Of the 32 patients involved, 17 had fibromyalgia. The study also accounted for the specific type of pain the participants were experiencing, such as neck pain and back pain.

In order to make sure the experiment would be worthwhile, the team adhered to rigid scientific standards. The study was a “randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled” clinical trial that was conducted by independent researchers not associated with any particular PEMF producer. During the course of the study, patients received PEMF treatments for forty minutes per day, twice per day, for seven consecutive days.

The Results: Do PEMF devices work?

This important study concluded that PEMF devices are measurably effective at treating fibromyalgia and other related conditions. In fact, while the study does admit that additional research would certainly be helpful, it claims “PEMF may be a novel, safe and effective therapeutic tool for use in at least certain subsets of patients with chronic, nonmalignant pain.”

The research team was careful not to overstate their conclusions, but this was a clear sign that PEMF devices can help some people in need. This study, particularly due to its scientific rigor, has been consistently cited by the FDA and other organizations that are heavily involved in the PEMF industry. In a time where opiate abuse has become a major problem in the United States and elsewhere, finding an alternative method for treating certain types of pain is certainly a major leap forward.

How has the PEMF industry changed?

In many ways, this study was a major launching point for the PEMF industry as a whole. With FDA approval and scientific support, many companies have seen the benefits these devices can provide. In response, the number of PEMF suppliers, producers, and marketers has noticeably risen.

As the market becomes more competitive, the quality of PEMF devices has improved in response. Currently, there are many different PEMF machines available to choose from. While it is not uncommon for doctors to recommend these devices to their patients, they can also be purchased online or over the counter at various locations. In addition to having proven effectiveness, these devices also have no known side effects.

PEMF machines can be used to improve healing, blood cells, and oxygen delivery down to the cellular level. Countless patients have had positive experiences with these machines and many users consider them to be far superior to their previous approaches to pain management (such as prescription medications).

Despite the fact that quality has been on the rise, many PEMF brands have become more affordable. This is largely because, with new technology and production methods, manufacturing a single machine is now much less expensive. While the future of the PEMF market is yet to be seen, it is clearly moving in a very exciting direction.

Conclusion – Do PEMF Devices Work?

A recent study has concluded that PEMF devices can be used to manage several different conditions, particularly, chronic pain that is caused by fibromyalgia. With multiple supplementary studies and additional research being conducted on a regular basis, PEMF machines will likely play a much more relevant role for individuals looking for lasting pain relief.

Is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Effective for Pets and Animals?

What is good for humans is also good for animals. In fact, the benefits of PEMF therapy are documented in multiple peer-reviewed clinical studies for a wide range of medical conditions.  The short answer to is pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) effective for pets is yes.

In the 21st Century, people and animals are continually exposed to damaging electromagnetic fields (EMF), limiting their exposure to Earth’s vital pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF).

Soviet Researcher, Georges Lakhovsky, noted cells are equipped with biological receivers that react to every stimulus in the environment stating, “Every cell is stimulated by the resonating interaction of the rhythmical flow of electromagnetic currents.”

Pulsed Harmonix’s TruePulse A2000® releases a series of carefully-timed pulses that closely resemble earth’s naturally occurring PEMFs, revitalizing body tissue at the cellular level.

Dr. William Pawluk speaks out about the healing properties for dogs, cats, horses and other animals using Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF). PEMF has been FDA-approved to fuse broken bones and has been cleared in certain devices to reduce swelling and joint pain.  PEMF creates a powerful electrical magnetic field that extends approximately 5 feet in circumference from the device. Tissues including blood cells, muscle, ligaments, tendons, bone and cartilage respond to electromagnetic fields as they sweep through the body.

According to Dr. Pawluk new studies show that with the proper field intensity and frequency, treatment with PEMF appears to be life-changing.

Many animals receiving PEMF treatments such as dogs, cats, and horses with joint pain, arthritis, hip dysplasia, and other aches and pains have shown great improvement in their mobility.

Considered a wonderful new natural healing alternative to surgery, PEMF is changing the way people are helping their beloved pets feel better and live longer.

Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy is effective for pets and safe.  Here is a very conclusive video testimonial of how Pulsed Harmonix’s PEMF device helped one of our four-legged clients – Elwood, the American bulldog.

How Far Does Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Penetrate the Body?

In order to measure how far the magnetic field extended from the device, we used a magnetometer.  Specifically, we used a Nikken magnetometer (see photo).  This magnetometer isn’t calibrated so it doesn’t show gauss (a unit of magnetic induction).  However, it does show the relative intensity at different distances and power settings visually. 

We tested the A2000 device with the spiral coil Mat applicator.   Here is what we found:

At a mid-power setting, the magnetic field extends approximately 2.5 feet in all directions from the center of the Mat and approximately 5 feet at the full power setting. This eliminates the need for a full-body Mat.

From all 4 sides of the Mat applicator, the magnetometer measured PEMF from 2.5’ away.

So if you apply the Mat to the center core of your body, front or back, the magnetic field will be focused on your core vital systems and will still extend well over the top of your head and well past your feet depending on the power setting.

Of course the power of the pulse decreases with distance from the applicators.

Part of what makes the Pulsed Harmonix A2000 an incredible value is the power it generates for such a compact device.  The magnetometer photo and measurements above show how that power helps the PEMF penetrate through the body.

Astronaut Buzz Aldren Used the Pulsed Harmonix A2000 PEMF Device

Do you know a guy that walked on the moon?  We do.  Astronaut Buzz Aldren has experienced Pulsed Harmonix’s True Pulse A2000 Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy device.

PEMF and space exploration have a long relationship.  Decades ago when the Soviets and the United States were in a space race they performed extensive testing on how human beings would function in space.  As people get farther from the earth’s magnetic field it turns out that many of our life systems begin to malfunction including muscle atrophy and bone loss.  NASA studies show that stem cell activity sped up 2-4 times with PEMF and was vital to sustaining the critical life systems of astronauts in space. So both space programs developed Pulsed Electromagnetic Field devices to simulate the earth’s magnetic field for astronauts in outer space.

Buzz can be seen enjoying using the A2000 at the Space Symposium

Energy is Electromagnetic and Good Health Requires it

All energy is electromagnetic in nature, and nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange between cells.

When electromagnetic activity ceases, life ceases. Electromagnetic energy controls our chemistry. Disruption of this energy in cells causes impaired cell metabolism, and if our cells are not healthy, our body is not healthy, in whole or in part.

Magnetic fields cause or increase motion of ions and electrolytes in the tissues and fluids of the body. It’s both easy and quick to move an ion or electrolyte in a living organism using magnetic fields. This movement stimulates a vast array of chemical and electric actions in the tissues of the body, helping them to re-balance or heal themselves where necessary.

Through the increased motion of ions and electrolytes, magnetic fields help cells increase their energy (or “charge”) by up to 500%.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy transfers energy to the body and supports your health at the cellular level.  If you have questions about PEMF or the Pulsed Harmonix True Pulse A2000 device please email [email protected] or call us at (855) 749-7363.
