Although electricity’s potential to aid bone healing was reported as early as 1841, it was not until the mid-1950s that scientists seriously studied the subject. During the 1970s, Bassett and his team introduced a new approach for the treatment of delayed fractures, a technique that employed a very specific biphasic low frequency signal[10][11][12][13] to be applied for non-union/delayed fractures. The use of electrical stimulation in the lumbosacral region was first attempted by Alan Dwyer of Australia. In 1974, he reported successful initiation of graft incorporation in 11 of 12 fusion patients.[14][15]

PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy has been used for centuries in various forms and was researched notably by Nikola Tesla and NASA. Only recently have the benefits of PEMF therapy started to gain popularity, receiving the support of respected members of the scientific community such as Dr. Oz and double Nobel Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling.
Having the intense pain, swelling with discoloration happening right before my eyes. Well, Dr. Pacelli explain that following his procedures would have me walking down the isle in the six weeks’ time, with no pain, swelling and the normal color to my lower leg and ankle area. He stated the bone would be mending but we would not know how much it would be mended until the day before that wonderful date. One of the major therapies was PEMF that I never heard of before but what a different it made to my leg.
There have been thousands of scientific studies on the effects of PEMF Devices. PEMF accelerates the healing of: soft tissue injuries, inflammatory joints, delayed and non-union fractures, and improves circulation and cellular metabolism. PEMF THERAPY is used in some clinics for the following conditions: Acid burns, Arthritis, Asthma, Bone fractures, Burns, Coronary disease, Depression, Eye disease, Fibromyalgia, Headaches, Infections, Inflammation, Insomnia, Leg edema, Liver problems, Lumbago, Menopause complaints, Migraine headache, Muscular atrophy, Muscular cramps, Nephritis, Nephroses, Neuralgia, Osteoporoses, Period cramps, Pigmentation, Poor circulation, Post – operative pains, Psoriosis, Rheumatism, Sexual disturbances, Skin problems, Tennis elbow, Tinnitus, Tooth extraction, Ulcus cruris, Wound healing.

Pour les corrections, c'est soit en direct (quand je circule, et que je vois quelque chose de juste, je coche tout de suite sur le cahier), soit autocorrection pour ceux qui en sont capables (ils viennent me montrer le travail et peuvent alors chercher la fiche de correction), soit par moi le soir, avec reprise le lendemain matin en tout début de matinée (j'ai un temps dédié aux corrections). Les élèves trichent moins quand ils comprennent que si le test est raté (parce qu'ils n'ont rien compris à la série qui précède et ont triché pour répondre), ils doivent recommencer...
Oxidative free radicals are formed when O2 reaching the cell is not burned adequately (by the mitochondria). Lab geeks call it “Oxygen Leakage”. The worse the leakage, the higher the oxidative stress. Get it? You can flood the body with oxygen using ozone or hyperbaric chambers and that’s fine, but if that oxygen reaches the cell and isn’t burned properly your oxidative load skyrockets. Unlike hyperbaric or hypoxic training, EarthPulse™ PEMF results in a natural rise of blood and tissue oxygen. It sticks with you for days. Permanently for a routine user.
NASA (National Aeronautical and Space Administration) also saw the need to develop a means of preventing and treating bone and muscle loss of their astronauts as they explored the moon and other regions of the galaxy. Methods were developed to enhance bone retention, prevent or alleviate muscle atrophy, and enhance natural healing and regeneration whilst in a space environment with little access to conventional treatments.

Some people report a mild headache after their first few PEMF therapy sessions. Since Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields stimulate neurons1 and enhance cellular repair2, these effects are temporary and are a small cost to pay for the repair that takes place. Eventually, the pain relief3 effects start appearing after the user is acclimatized to the magnetic field. Others report no such symptoms and take to PEMF like fish to water with zero negative side effects of PEMF therapy.
Widely used in Europe, and growing in popularity across North America, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been used for decades by doctors, chiropractors, naturopaths and even veterinarians. In the past, PEMF devices were quite large and prohibitively expensive for most of the general public. Today, however, PEMF devices are used in many homes, and costs have fallen considerably.
Pour mes séances en production d’écrits/écriture essayée, je m’appuie sur les petits livres de la collection « Histoire de mots » chez PEMF. Le principe est assez simple : proposer une structure répétitive originale qui facilite beaucoup le passage à l’écrit. Comme les élèves disposent d’un modèle, la production des phrases et le passage à l’écrit sont facilités.
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).

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.

Recently, I've started using it consistently for longer times, keeping it on through several cycles of the PD drugs. In doing so, I've found that this can reduce the prolonged "off" periods in which the drugs wear off completely. Thus, consistent use of the device is helping to keep pain and rigidity symptoms at bay, and to also extend the time of action of each dose too, allowing a lower drug burden overall. I also therefore get less, and less severe, dyskinesia - the large scale uncontrolled wriggling movements which long term use of the PD drugs tends to cause (side-effect of medication).

Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF) works by improving cellular function and health at the molecular level. PEMF improves health by addressing impaired chemistry and the function of cells. Science has proven that our bodies produce their own magnetic fields. Everything works within the body by electromagnetic exchange. Disruption of electromagnetic energy in cells can cause impaired cell metabolism.
The OMI pulse pad is also available, and has been helpful for those who suffer from carpal tunnel or other localized areas that are painful. The pulse pad can be easily placed on a table or on your lap, allowing you to rest your arm gently on the pulse pad. The pulse pad is compact and battery operated, making it easy to take your therapy wherever you choose to go.
Sleeping inside the infrasonic cocoon created by our patented, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field each night, precisely “tuned” to Mother Nature’s very special low-low (infrasonic) frequencies will leave you feeling clear headed, sharp, full of energy, and with a renewed zest for life. Our entire frequency range is under 15 Hz; and with these magnetic frequencies, we can give you the best sleep you’ve had in decades, or, alternatively help wake you up at a specific time in the morning; or keep you alert through most of the night with less caffeine.
Stationary (or “static”), non-varying, magnetic fields from magnets have fixed strengths. They are used in mattresses, bracelets, knee wraps and the like. Most have very shallow penetration into the body, resulting in a very limited ability to affect deeper tissues, and they rarely treat all the cells of the body simultaneously. Only skilled practitioners may guide you to get the bestresults from these approaches.
Also on the show, family physician Dr. William Pawluk discussed the OrthoCor Active Knee System. This is an FDA-approved device that combines PEMF energy and thermal therapy to increase circulation and thus reduce swelling, relieve chronic pain and arthritis, as well as improve range of motion. The device’s technology consists of a cuff that surrounds the knee. It has a coil and heat pods that send magnetic pulses and heat through the injured tissue. Patients can walk while the OrthoCor device is in operation. OrthoCor sells its products through orthopedic clinics, physicians and health care practitioners.
Harmful EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) that cause electro smog come from many electrical components such as wiring, motors, cell phones and other equipment. Small appliances and equipment that are used in our homes daily such as computers, TV, WiFi and microwaves transmit frequencies that are equally disruptive to the human body as is that of cell phone towers and high voltage power lines.
The development of modern PEMF has followed two separate pathways. The first pathway originated in more conventional (and still useful) electromagnetic field technologies broadly known as radio frequency (RF) diathermy.4 Continuous RF produces heat, the therapeutic component frequently employed in physical therapy. One early user of diathermy suspected that it could produce a nonthermal biologic effect.5 To test this idea clinically, the RF signal was intermittently pulsed, thereby eliminating heat. Positive outcomes, especially in treating inflammatory conditions, were reported.5 The first therapeutic RF PEMF device, the Diapulse, was commercialized in 19506 and was eventually cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the postoperative treatment of pain and edema in soft tissue. Clinical devices in use since that time typically have consisted of a large signal generator and a bulky coil applicator positioned over the area of injury that delivers therapy noninvasively, through either dressings or clothing. Early devices were expensive, nonportable, and produced significant electromagnetic interference (EMI); these factors restricted more widespread use in outpatient and home settings.

The original PEMF devices consisted of a Helmholtz coil which generated a magnetic field. The patient's body was placed inside the magnetic field to deliver treatment. Today, the majority of PEMF wellness devices resemble a typical yoga mat in dimensions but are slightly thicker to house several flat spiral coils to produce an even electromagnetic field. A frequency generator is then used to energize the coils to create a pulsed electromagnetic field. A wide variety of professional and consumer PEMF devices are sold and marketed as FDA registered wellness devices.[9] The majority are manufactured in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and are imported into North America as electric massagers or full body electric yoga mats. They are either placed on a massage table for clinical use or directly on the floor in the home to practice simple yoga postures. The companies that sell and manufacture them as "general wellness products" are not permitted to make medical claims of effectiveness in treating disease.[9]

The majority of these reactions are temporary and mild. In people with electromagnetic hypersensitivity and electrical hypersensitivity, these reactions are not only increasingly common but also more uncomfortable, yet magnetic therapy is seldom discontinued in this situation. Usually, the issues can be resolved by slightly adjusting the treatment.
Did a quick search this morning and found the website which has so much info that I’ve been looking for. My husband has just been diagnosed and I’m researching how to help him. This is so inspirational and I’ve forwarded it onto our neuro physio. Oddly enough she came today armed with hand exercises which is what led me to this website. I’m in tears. So happy to have found you.

To apply PEMF therapy, an electrical current is run through a copper coil which produces a magnetic field. This has been incorporated into various types of devices, with a full body therapy mat being  the most effective and oft-used device. One either lays on the mat or places the applicator in the region that needs to be treated. PEMFs will enter through the body targeting the muscle tissue, cells, and even bones.


In all advanced organisms, blood circulation regulates the nourishment of cells with oxygen and nutrients, the removal of waste products, vital information about hormones and chemical messengers, immune defenses and many other processes. The performance and functionality of every individual body cell and of muscles, joints, organs, glands and the immune system etc. depend on the optimal supply and removal by means of microcirculation.
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.
PEMF.com provides assistance to understand the actual mechanism this principle and at the same time assists those who intend to purchase a highly advanced system for home use in their decision-making. The contents of this site is NOT intended (which as also strictly prohibited by law) to promote or give medical or therapeutic recommendations for specific diseases without prior consultation with a doctor or other health care practitioner. PEMF systems are also often described with terms such as "magnetic field therapy systems or devices" as well as with the established term for the latest generation of systems on the market "intelligent magnetic-resonance-stimulation systems" (iMRS, iMRS one).

Having experienced an MRS 2000 and Bemer, I wanted a mat and thought I was getting such a good deal with the OMI. I just want to share my disappointment so that you may benefit from my leaning. First, there is a noise that emanates from the mat and PEMF Supply will tell you that his is normal. Well it isn't with the MRS or Bemer. The noise sounds something like what you might imagine electricity running through a coil would sound. It belied any relaxation for me. Secondly, you will pay at least $225 (my loss in simply returning the system was $374.37) to return it. If you feel you have a faulty mat, you will pay $50 to send it to them to look at and another $50 to send it back to you. For a new product, I feel that is very poor customer service. In light of these aspects, I am not able to recommend the OMI system. If you still want to buy it, I would advise buying from Amazon since they have a return policy.
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.)

Je fais maths tous les après-midi. Les trois niveaux en même temps. Cela me permet de faire fonctionner à plein l'entraide et de faire travailler les élèves au niveau qui leur correspond. Ainsi, j'ai actuellement un élève de CE1 qui cartonne en math (il a directement attaqué le fichier CE2 cette année et est en tête du groupe). L'an passé, j'avais à l'inverse un élève très en difficulté qui travaillait sur le fichier CE1 alors qu'il était au CE2. Alors oui, cet élève n'a pas suivi le programme de CE2 MAIS il a progressé, sans installer de nouvelles lacunes. Et le fait de se voir progresser (changer de série) a renforcé son estime de lui.
