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.

We bought this through Amazon and have had it about 2 months. Here is the deal: This does work. Yes, it is low power compared to the high power (MagnaWave, Pulse, Curatron, etc.) systems. Those I believe are useful for injuries and seriously infirm people - broken bones, Parkinsons, diabetes, etc. Those will also detox your body very quickly, sometimes leading to herxhiemer effects, flu-like symptoms, acute exhaustion as your body deals with toxins released from your cells. THIS system will give you energy, relieve chronic low-level arthritis, minor injuries and minor neuropathy. You will generally NOT deal with strong detox from the OMI-Mat, as it's lower power. The trick with the OMI-Mat is that you MUST use it 20-30 mins EVERY day for at least 3-4 days (on program P-1, in the morning or early afternoon) BEFORE you notice the effects. I did, and realized that I literally "just wasn't tired anymore" at the end of the day. Gave me energy to keep working late, WITHOUT exhaustion. This is the REAL deal and it works wonders if you give it a chance. You can miss a day or two during usage, but after a while, at least for me, the effects wear off somewhat. But, if you use the energy to start exercising, to "get over the hump" if you will, then capitalize on your use of this and move into better health and even more energy. If you are elderly and homebound or sedentary, this can be the most important tool for better circulation and energized blood. There is nothing close in this price range.

Classically, TENS has been used for the purpose of pain alleviation. Low-frequency TENS has also been found effective to increase microcirculation and facilitate the absorption of calcific deposits in the shoulder tendons.123,124 The most effective treatment points are believed to be associated with stimulation of the acupuncture points.125 Figure 41-9 displays a possible electrode placement using acupuncture sites. The points used in this arrangement include Jianjing (GB 21), Binao (LI 14), Juga (LI 16), and Jianya (LI 15).126 Any physical modality is only an adjunct in a physical therapy clinic and should be used with prudence.

Amethyst Crystals actually elongate and amplify the natural wavelength of a key component to the treatments, the far infrared rays, allowing them to penetrate up to 7 inches deep into the body. By comparison, other far infrared technologies may only penetrate less than half that depth. Amethyst’s healing properties have been acknowledged and celebrated for centuries by ancient scientists and healers.  Now, modern science has confirmed the highly conductive properties of this remarkable mineral.  Amethyst crystals offer the most consistent and powerful delivery of far infrared light waves, and ionic effects to the human body.
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?

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.

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.
A PEMF device furnishes an external pulsed electromagnetic field that facilitates the optimum electromagnetic environment for cells to regulate the inflow and outflow of electrically charged ions in tissues. Due to enhanced cellular performance, cell membranes are invigorated, this is how Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy improves oxygenation and nutrient absorption in body cells. The pangs and throes of pain can be conceived of as signals that permeate our consciousness, alerting us of endangered cells and tissues in our bodies.
A simple way to understand the how EMFs impact our cells is comparing the EMF to a battery charger and our body to a large number of small batteries (our cells). Every battery is made to operate properly within a certain voltage range. If you overcharge the battery it will burn out, this is similar to what happens to our cells when exposed to high frequency EMFs our cells are not compatible with. In comparison if you use the correct Battery Charger voltage the battery will charge properly, this is what the correct PEMF does for our cells. PEMFs charges our cells with the energy they are designed to operate at and need to operate at their maximum potential. BAD EMF's will burn out our body cells and other illness's will cause effectively a discharging of our body cell's.

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.

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.

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.

[1] *Depuis quelques années, certains collègues sont sollicités voire désignés par leur IEN en tant que MAT (maître d’accueil temporaire) pour accueillir des étudiants dans leur classe. D’aucuns, aussi, font acte de candidature spontanée ... Mais depuis 2010, la rémunération de ce service rendu à l’institution voit son montant fixé par un décret et un arrêté (n°2010-952 du 24 août 2010) et 2 circulaires (DGRH B1-3-DAF C1 n°2010-0249 du 9 septembre 2010 et DAF C1-D1 n°2010-0341 du 30 novembre 2010). Ainsi, chaque stage ouvre droit au versement d’une indemnité de 200€ à condition qu’il concerne un binôme d’étudiants. La rémunération se fait en une fois après service fait "à la date d’effet du 1er du mois courant et suivant le service fait."

Corticosteroid injections have been commonly utilized in treating rotator cuff disease. Koester et al (2007) performed a systematic review of the literature and analyzed nine randomized controlled studies comparing subacromial corticosteroid injection with placebo. One study demonstrated significant pain relief and two studies showed an increased range of motion in the injection group. No significant complications were identified. In a study comparing a corticosteroid injection with a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection for subacromial impingement syndrome, the investigators found the Constant score and VAS for pain to be significantly better at both 6 weeks and 6 months in the corticosteroid-treated group. Good patient candidates for a single subacromial corticosteroid injection to achieve pain control are those with significant night pain or patients who will not tolerate phase 1 rehabilitation because of pain.

Si tu te sens attirée par ce type d'outils, de mode de fonctionnement et de façon de penser ou de repenser ta classe, je ne peux que te conseiller de te rapprocher de ton groupe local de l'ICEM (institut pour l'école moderne, pédagogie Freinet). Tu pourras rencontrer des collègues au cours de réunions généralement mensuelles et échanger autour de tes questionnements.
