Back in 2002, a pilot study was carried out to objectively assess the effectiveness of EarthPulse. In the study, some 11 patients suffering from chronic pain for more than two years were placed on a PEMF therapy in order to determine how EarthPulse influences sleep patterns and pain reception. After a few months of treatment, 7 of the 11 patients, having been subjectively evaluated by Visual analog pain scales, reported significant alleviation of pain. The report on the study was tremendously positive.
This Twitter-brief statement packs in many red flags for quackery and snake oil: such as a simple device that can tack a wide range of medical conditions that do not appear to share a common cause or mechanism. The word “tackle” is vague, but implies either a cure or at least a significant treatment. Anyone claiming to treat or cure cancer deserves close scrutiny.
A systematic review aimed to examine the efficacy of rTMS on improving physical function and motor signs over the short- and long-terms in people with PD; Effect of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on Physical Function and Motor Signs in Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis; Chung CL; Brain Stimul. 2016 Jul-Aug;9(4):475-87. Twenty-two trials comprising 555 people with PD were included in the review. The pooled evidence suggests that rTMS improves upper limb function in the short-term, walking performance and Unified Parkinson’s Disease rating Scale (UPDRS III) in the short- and long-terms in PD sufferers.
Laser therapy was not demonstrated to be superior to placebo for patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy (Green et al 2003). Ultrasound (RR 1.81, 95% CI 1.26–2.60) and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (RR 19, 95% CI 1.16–12.43) resulted in improvement compared to placebo with regard to pain in patients with calcific tendinopathy. There is no evidence of an effect for ultrasound in patients with other tendinopathy. Ultrasound also provides no additional benefit when used in combination with exercise interventions over exercise alone (Green et al 2003). There is strong evidence that extra-corporeal shock-wave therapy is no more effective than placebo in patients with impingement with regard to functional limitations (Faber et al 2006).
Apparently, these PEMF therapy induced, oxygen (metabolism) effects are accelerated under load. While our U.S. Swimmers increased their static-breath-hold by 19% and 20% in 21 days, their underwater swim increased by 50% from one length of a 50M pool, to being able to turn and swim 1/2 way back. 75M with a turn in between! One NFL star running back increased his vertical jump by over 2 inches! These types of ergogenic effects are simply unprecedented. We’re the super-secret weapon of many professional sportsmen. Improving their dollar-value and extending their careers while they sleep. Priceless!…that’s EarthPulse™.
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.
Vis à vis des livrets des élèves : En étude de la langue, je fais des dictées à côté et j'évalue là-dessus. En mathématiques, je me rends surtout compte du niveau des élèves au moment où ils bloquent... A ce moment là, en discutant, on se rend bien compte de ce qui est acquis ou non dans la construction du nombres et des stratégies de calcul mental...
Conscience phonologique : Il s'agit notamment de la capacité à différencier les sons et les syllabes qui composent les mots et à pouvoir en déterminer l'ordre. La conscience phonologique est beaucoup travaillée en dernière année d'école maternelle car c'est un prérecquis indispensable à l'apprentissage de la lecture et de l'écriture en CP. Quand la conscience phonologique d'un élève est jugée insuffisante, il est fréquent que l'on propose à ses parents de recourir à l'aide d'un orthophoniste.
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.
It is important to understand that PEMF therapy or any energy medicine device for the matter does not treat disease like a pharmaceutical synthetic drug. What it does is to assist the body so it can heal itself. The body is self-healing, self-regulating and self-regenerating and can heal itself if it is given energy and the right elements needed to sustain life.
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.
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.
In addition to its benefits on fractures displaying a failed healing response, LIPUS can substantially accelerate the rate of repair of fresh fractures. LIPUS also promotes greater bone content in fracture callus, more rapid endochondral ossification, and quicker recovery of stiffness in ovariectomy-induced osteoporotic, as well as diabetic, rats. In humans, LIPUS can reduce the time for recovery of clinical and radiographic union by 30–38%. This represents a reduction in healing time of 58, 37, and 19 days in tibial diaphyseal, distal radius, and scaphoid fractures, respectively.
The most recent studies of the PEMF transduction pathway have concentrated upon the Ca/CaM-dependent nitric oxide (NO) cascades. It is within this system that the effectiveness of PEMF is now understood to function. However, those linkages were dependent on the discovery that NO is a signaling molecule.41 NO is synthesized via nitric oxide synthase (NOS), that has several different isoforms.42 When injury occurs, large amounts of NO are produced by long-lived inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). In this cascade, tissue levels of NO persist and the prolonged presence of this free radical is proinflammatory,43 which accounts for the leaky blood vessels associated with pain and swelling.44 In contrast, the endothelial and neuronal nitric oxide synthase isoforms (eNOS and nNOS, respectively) produce NO in short bursts that can immediately relax blood and lymph vessels.45,46 These short bursts of NO also lead to the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate, which in turn drives growth factor production.47 Interestingly, iNOS is not dependent on CaM,43 while the constitutive or cNOS (eNOS or nNOS) cascade is dependent on the binding of Ca/CaM. Therapies that could accelerate Ca/CaM binding, therefore, should impact all phases of tissue repair, from initial pain and swelling to blood vessel growth, tissue regeneration, and remodeling.42
PEMF has been known to completely reverse chronic pain and alleviate or greatly reduce other symptoms after only a few sessions. Within days of use, it has the capacity to accelerate injury recovery that normally would have taken weeks or months to fully recovery from. PEMF treatment is also very effective but gentle for an area which may be too sore to touch and manually massage. Now you have a choice! You don’t have to live with pain.
We thank Dr Pfeiffer for raising this point. The EULAR recommendations for the management of knee osteoarthritis1-1combined an evidence based approach and a consensus approach. The evidence based approach—that is, the literature research, was only applied for the treatment modalities selected by the experts at the first meeting of the committee (see table 1 of the paper).
IUFM : L'IUFM, ou Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maîtres, est un établissement d'enseignement supérieur chargé de la formation des enseignants. Pour le premier degré, il accueille des étudiants qui préparent le concours de professeur des écoles (PE1) et des fonctionnaires lauréats du concours de recrutement en formation par alternance (PE2).
Although PEMF therapy may seem like a novel technology, it has been safely and effectively utilized across America and Europe for over five decades. PEMF therapy is surrounded by more than 7,000 studies and clinical trials, including those from NASA, that have demonstrated the advantages of PEMFs. PEMF is a popular therapy used for better health and improved performance of both humans and animals worldwide.
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.
Considering the role of thoracic flexion on scapulo-thoracic motion, education with regard to appropriate posture seems an obvious component of patient education. Bullock et al (2005) noted a significant increase in patients with impingement for shoulder flexion range although not pain intensity with erect as compared to slouched sitting posture. Visual, manual, and verbal feedback combined with education on faulty movement patterns provided significantly decreased electromyographic activity in the upper and middle trapezius, infraspinatus, serratus anterior, and anterior and middle deltoid muscles of patients with impingement immediately and 24 hours after movement training, whereas trunk, shoulder, and clavicular kinematics improved during and immediately after training, especially in the subset of patients with elevated clavicular position supporting the role of educating patients on correct movement patterns (Roy et al 2009).
