Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been extensively studied by Hannemann et al. (see Chapter 23).20 With regard to pulsed low-intensity ultrasound therapy, Mayr et al. performed a single-blind randomized controlled trial with patients sustaining scaphoid fractures type B1 or B2 (Herbert classification). 29 patients (30 fractures) were divided into two groups; all patients were treated with a below-elbow cast with immobilization of the thumb until radiologic consolidation occurred. The intervention group additionally underwent a pulsed low-intensity ultrasound treatment of 20 min daily. The consolidation was assessed by a CT scan every 2 weeks. The time until consolidation was 43.2 ± 10.9 days in the intervention group, compared with 62 ± 19.2 days in the placebo group, a significant difference (P = .0055). Limitations of this study include the small groups, lacking sample size calculation, a single-blinded design, and more importantly the imprecision and unreliability of the primary outcome time until consolidation, despite the fact that evaluation by a CT-scan was performed every 2 weeks.21 No further publications considering both subjects have been found in the literature.
Good Health, well-being and life in general depend on a functional micro-circulation, the blood flow in the tiniest blood vessels of our bodies, the capillaries. It is exclusively there where nutrients and oxygen, metabolic waste products and carbon dioxide are exchanged with all of the body’s cells. This microcirculatory system represents about 74% of our bodies’ entire network of blood vessels and is therefore one of the most important factors for normal, healthy body function. As we age, our capillaries become less perfused, and the flow of blood to the cells slows. The result is an increased risk of disease, fatigue and premature aging. However, we are able to significantly influence this process with PEMF Technology.
More than 33% of Americans suffer from chronic pain, and people are searching for solutions other than drugs, unnecessary surgeries and deep injections to provide relief. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF or PEMT) is a non-invasive, painless treatment for various injuries, bone related conditions and pains. The treatment works by emitting a pulsating, varying intensity and frequency electromagnetic field, coming from a solenoid placed around the patient. The application of pulsed magnetic fields has, through research findings, been shown to help the body to restore normal potentials at an accelerated rate, thus aiding the healing of most wounds, regenerating tissue and reducing swelling faster.
Since the beginning of human civilization, magnetic fields have been used for pain relief and to promote healing. However a breakthrough came through a study in the 1940s that gathered that the permeability of cell membranes was directly affected by pulsed magnetic fields. The transmission of electrical impulses via cell membranes results in the generation of the body’s magnetic field which also has a pulse or a frequency.
Although electromagnetic therapy techniques essentially started with Tesla’s three-foot coils, engaging in PEMF therapy today is simpler on the patient and doctor alike. PEMF devices are available in all shapes and sizes, even offering options for home use for patients who want to continue their treatment sessions between office visits. However, if it weren’t for the ideas, curiosities, and ahead-of-their time findings of individuals such as Tesla, Gurvich, and Lakhovsky, PEMF therapy would not be where it is today.
Martin grew up working with his father, Maurice Bales, at Bales Scientific, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of medical devices. Maurice’s first two machines were infrared cameras — the same model that Martin uses in his practice today. His father’s second invention and popular medical device was the Photonic Stimulator — the machine used for photon therapy.Martin decided he liked working with patients, so he decided to study Traditional Chinese Medicine — acupuncture, Chinese herbology, and other modalities.Over the course of Pacific College’s 4-year master’s program, Martin studied the effects of photon therapy in combination with acupuncture for pain management. He was very impressed with the results and now offers this innovative combination therapy at the Center for New Medicine.Dr. Bales has worked extensively with cancer patients, starting with a 1 year internship on the Oncology floor of Rady Children’s hospital in San Diego. At Center For New Medicine and Cancer Center for Healing, Dr. Bales runs the Photon, Class IV Laser, PEMF, and Acupuncture therapies for Cancer patients. These therapies provide both primary and adjunctive-focused treatments to address increasing bioavailability of Hyperbaric Oxygen and IV therapies and providing non-invasive pain management when needed.

Thousands of research studies have shown that PEMF therapy promotes healthy cell function. This is likely because PEMF or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy stimulates electrical charges in the cell and creates an improved energy supply, which then reactivates and revitalises cells whose function has been restricted: This becomes even more vital for those of us over our 50's and older!

EarthPulse™ makes the only devices of their kind. EarthPulse™ PEMF devices allow for all night brain stimulation for a deeper state of sleep, while simultaneously enhancing and helping promote mitochondrial oxygen metabolism. More energy from every breath of air! More efficient O2 metabolism lowers oxidative stress and promotes cells resiliency to other metabolic stress producers like WiFi and other types of RF (radio frequency). The E-Stim does what a strong magnetic stimulator costing over $10,000 would do for just $399!
Although the results seem straightforwardly positive, the authors explain that “some of the effects of this therapeutic approach might be derived from neuromodulation of the pain mechanism”: that is, it might be “just” a pain-killer, as opposed to actually helping to heal arthritic cartilage. (But killing pain effectively would be a pretty good second place.)
In a parallel but separate evolution, orthopedic surgeons, studying the process by which mechanical signals influence bone growth and repair,16,17 discovered that everyday mechanical signals (walking, jumping, etc.) produced endogenous electrical currents in bone that could modulate bone cell activity.18 This naturally led to the use of exogenous current for bone repair. The first animal studies employed low (microampere) level direct currents (DC) delivered via implanted electrodes that resulted in new bone formation around the negative electrode (cathode19). The first therapeutic devices were based on these early animal studies and used implanted and semi-invasive electrodes delivering DC to the fracture site.20,21 These early applications required the cathode to be near the fracture site because bone growth was limited to the area immediately adjacent to the electrode surface, where chemical changes related to electrolysis occur.
Curating this bibliography since 2002 has contributed to our designing the most powerful, yet portable PEMF therapy devices for sale anywhere. Routine night-long EarthPulse™ PEMF therapy through your existing mattress enhances the sleep process, radically accelerates short & long term recovery, slows down the aging process and radically increases strength & stamina with no effort whatsoever.
We spend a lot of time on this site discussing the dangers of unwanted EMF radiation, and looking at ways of protecting you and your family from its harmful effects. But as part of that discussion it is important to look at positive uses of electromagnetic fields. And one of the primary beneficial applications of EMF is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy.
Le fonctionnement d'une classe Freinet va réellement bien au-delà de la simple utilisation des fichiers PEMF. Ainsi, l'apprentissage de la lecture y passe AVANT TOUT par l'acte de production d'écrit. Les textes libres pouvant ensuite (ou non) servir de base à l'apprentissage de la lecture, dans une démarche de lecture naturelle (que je ne pratique pas pour ma part). Les fichiers de lecture PEMF, à la différence des fichiers maths, me semblent plus venir en complément de ce qui est fait en classe que comme base de travail. En cela, je ne les utiliserais pas dans l'idée de couvrir le programme de lecture en CP, mais plutôt comme outil de différenciation.
