"In October 2008 the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of PEMF therapy for treatment of major depressive disorder in PD patients who failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from very high dosages of antidepressant medications. Several studies reported PEMF therapy improved cognitive functions and motor symptoms. For example, an investigation involving three elderly PD patients with cognitive impairment assessed the effect of PEMF therapy on a disorder of the body image in which the patient perceives a part or parts of his body as disproportionately large. After receiving PEMF therapy, PD patients’ drawings showed reversal of macrosomatognosia (assessed by Draw-a-Person test) with reduction of the right parietal lobe dysfunction." 

RESULTS: Sixty-six patients were included, and 60 completed the study. After 1 month, PEMF induced a significant reduction in VAS pain and WOMAC scores compared with placebo. Additionally, pain tolerance, as expressed by PPT changes, and physical health improved in PEMF-treated patients. A mean treatment effect of -0.73 (95% CI - 1.24 to - 0.19) was seen in VAS score, while the effect size was -0.34 (95% CI - 0.85 to 0.17) for WOMAC score. Twenty-six per cent of patients in the PEMF group stopped NSAID/analgesic therapy. No adverse events were detected.


EREA : L'EREA, Etablissement régional d'enseignement adapté, accueille en externes, demi-pensionnaires ou internes, des adolescents qui ont des difficultés d'apprentissage très importantes. A cela, il n'est pas rare que s'ajoutent des problèmes comportementaux sévères. L'enseignement correspond à des classes de 6ème, 5ème, 4ème et 3ème SEGPA mais il arrive que le niveau y soit encore plus faible. Des sections CAP peuvent s'y ajouter, permettant donc en 6 ans l'obtention d'un premier diplôme lié à une profession manuelle.
PRP injections are being utilized for partial rotator cuff tears. There are mixed results in the literature. A randomized controlled trial (level I evidence) with a 1-year follow-up demonstrated no benefit from a single PRP injection in comparison with placebo (Kesikburun et al, 2013). Biologic type injections may have a role in the treatment of partial rotator cuff tears; however, the exact platelet count and leukocyte concentration in PRP for optimal growth factor activity has yet to be definitively proven in the literature.
While the researchers ultimately recommended that more research be conducted on this particular treatment method to be able to clearly say that it is effective for a variety of different health conditions, they also noted that“ Acute adverse effects have not been reported.” This was after reviewing 11 PEMF studies in total,each of which had anywhere from 12 to 71 participants.

Once it was established that Ca2+ binding to CaM was a potential transduction pathway for PEMFs, the electrochemical model was employed to configure RF signals that would efficiently couple to Ca2+-binding kinetics28 using rate constants, which are well studied for the Ca/CaM system.39 This enabled the diathermy-based PEMF signal to be reconfigured so that its frequency spectrum more closely matched the dielectric properties of Ca2+-binding kinetics at CaM. The result is a PEMF device that uses 100 times less peak power to produce a biologically effective signal dose in the body. Initial confirmation of these predictions of the electrochemical model were reported for the MLCK enzyme assay, neurite outgrowth, and bone repair in a rabbit model.40 All of the limitations of the original diathermy-based devices were therefore addressed, potentially providing the physician with a more versatile and economical tool for postoperative pain and edema management with no known side effects.3
PEMFs have been in clinical use for generations. For most of that time, however, PEMFs have been relegated to second or even third tier status, with some ardent supporters, a number of skeptics, and most clinicians and patients simply unaware of their benefits. Without substantive information about a mechanism of action and frequently being the subject of overzealous marketing and inflated claims, PEMF devices lacked credibility. When the knowledge base in basic sciences allowed for the critical examination of PEMF in the laboratory and provided techniques for both targeting and engineering, the system advanced and the many effects of PEMF signals could be rationalized within at least 1 biologic cascade—one that is dependent on an electrochemical process and can be affected by exogenous signals. It was clear from this work that different PEMF signals and configurations produce widely different results depending on how well targeted those signals are to naturally occurring and biologically salient electrochemical processes. As this body of evidence grows and clinical experience widens, the gaps in the current knowledge (especially concerning optimal treatment regimens for specific conditions) will be filled. At the same time, we anticipate that improved signals and products that are more effective and more ergonomically designed will be developed, and that other electrochemical pathways will be targeted for additional indications. This may finally be the century of electrotherapy. In the meantime, plastic surgeons have at hand a powerful tool for the adjunctive management of postoperative pain and edema and wound repair. PEMF therapy is simple, cost-effective, has no known side effects, and may well play a large role in treatment of otherwise intractable wounds while reducing the cost of health care.

Results: Low-back pain scores for the 42-µs group decreased by 40.2% (p = 0.028), compared to 18.6% for the 38-µs pulse width group (p = 0.037) and 25.6% for the sham group (p = 0.013 per protocol population). Average leg pain scores decreased by 45.0% (42 μs, p = 0.009), 17.0% (38 μs, p = 0.293), and 24.5% (sham, p = 0.065). The proportion of subjects responding to therapy, time to 30% reduction in pain scores, and Patient Global Impression of Change were improved with the PEMF 42-μs device over the sham control, although results were associated with p-values >0.05.

In my opinion this means that the regulations are entirely inadequate. The company charges £2,315 ($3,377) for their device, an added expense that most people suffering from a serious illness probably cannot afford. There is also always the risk that convincing someone a magic box will cure their cancer will make them less likely to pursue standard proven treatments.


Circonscription : Une circonscription regroupe une partie des écoles d'un département. Sa gestion est confiée à un Inspecteur de l'Education Nationale (IEN) qui est assisté dans les tâches de formation du personnel par des conseillers pédagogiques. Un département rural est généralement divisé en 4 à 6 circonscriptions alors qu'un département fortement peuplé peut en compter plus d'une dizaine.


At Bulletproof, there’s a lot of talk about mitochondria, the battery packs of your cells. How many mitochondria you have and how strong they are affect everything you do — from performing better to living longer. There are ways to boost your mitochondria through diet and lifestyle. But what if you could charge up your mitochondria directly — in a sense, plug them in?
Centuries later, during the Middle Ages, use of these types of stones was again recorded, thistime referring to them as “lodestones” which were placed upon the patient’s body in an effort to achieve greater health. Then, in the late 1800s, science increased our understanding of electrons and electro-magnetism, prompting healthcare professionals to consider using magnetism and electricity for a number of different ailments, ranging from an inability to sleep to actual physical convulsions.
This was a rigorous test of wearable pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) for older patients with osteoarthritis of the knee: moderate to severe cases with X-ray evidence and pain of at least 4/10 for more than six months, despite maximum tolerated medication. Sixty patients wore either a real PEMF device for 12 hours per day, or a fake; neither they nor the researchers knew who got real PEMF (double-blind). PEMF is particularly easy to test properly, because it causes no sensation, making it much easier to compare to an active placebo.
The use of electromagnetic fields has been advocated to promote the synthesis of extracellular matrix proteins of bone cells and the secretion of growth factors from osteoblasts to stimulate angiogenesis and new bone formation. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy may enhance angiopoietin-2 expression. It may also affect several membrane receptors and stimulate osteoblasts to secrete several growth factors such as BMPs 2 and 4, TGF-β, and FGF-2. These anabolic effects of electromagnetic fields on bone formation contribute to the enhancement of fracture repair.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF or PEMT) is a non-invasive, painless treatment which works by emitting a pulsating, varying intensity and frequency electromagnetic field, coming from a solenoid placed around the patient. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy was approved by the FDA in 1979 specifically for the healing of nonunion fractures, which came after a Columbia University study that was encouraged by NASA, and has recently gained attention in the U.S (even appearing as a segment on the Dr. Oz Show). The value of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been shown to cover a wide range of conditions, with well documented trials carried out by hospitals, rheumatologists, physiotherapists, and neurologists. PEMF was widely used and with great success in the 19th and early 20th century. These primitive electromagnetic therapeutic devices were used by both medical doctors and non-allopathic health practitioners.

There is currently a lack of guidelines based on randomized, prospective studies to aid the clinician treating partial rotator cuff tears and contusions. Also, most of the available studies lack adequate statistical power. The results of nonoperative management of partial-thickness tears are largely unknown because there are no long-term follow-up studies using a standardized treatment protocol. Nonsurgical treatment is still regarded as the initial management step. The goal of treatment in athletes with a partial rotator cuff tear is to eliminate pain and restore function. Treatment of the athlete with a rotator cuff contusion has the same objective. The goals could evolve if biologic interventions are developed that lead to a true healing response (Ferhat et al, 2016).
PEMF allows for almost immediate increase in vascular flow, enhancing circulation and reducing edema, such as in the series on a nasal defect demonstrated in Figure 7. Another important use of PEMF configured for the Ca/CaM/NO pathway is in the treatment of chronic nonhealing wounds. The recommended treatment is 30 minutes twice per day until the wound is closed. Closure of chronically open wounds may be seen in 6 to 10 weeks with this treatment (Figures 8 and 9).
It is this amplified electron spinning which restores the cell’s potential (its energy), regulating its volume at the same time. And, unlike some other forms of CAM, this positive cellular effect lasts for as many as four days after the treatment session has ended. With that, PEMF therapy is: The induction of electricity into the cells to help stimulate or promote healing.

Illustrations of some current postsurgical uses of portable/disposable pulsed electromagnetic field devices with signals configured for the calcium/calmodulin/nitric oxide pathway. A, Application to breast augmentation/reduction. The devices are incorporated in dressings/bras and activated immediately after surgery. B, Application to abdominoplasty. The device is incorporated into the dressing and activated immediately after surgery. The device is applied over the dressing and autoactivated every 4 hours for 72 hours and then every 8 hours for 72 hours and, finally, twice a day until it is no longer needed.
Je pense consacrer 15 minutes 4 fois par semaine à ces leçons (pour le calcul et la numération), mais je n'en fais pas sur les difficultés des fiches, chaque élève a ses propres difficultés (ou pas) sur les fiches, donc ce sont plutôt les élèves qui s'entraident lorsque l'un d'entre eux ne comprend pas une fiche. Pour établir ma progression, j'avais regardé la progression des fichiers PEMF pour calquer au mieux.
