Low-power electromagnetic stimulation of osteotomized rabbit fibulae. A randomized, blinded study

Abstract The purpose of this study was to determine whether low-power-consuming symmetrical-waveform electromagnetic stimuli could increase the stiffness of fracture sites in a rabbit fibular-osteotomy model. Both active and placebo devices were used in a blinded study protocol. Dose-response studies of pulse amplitude and pulse width were performed by continuous application (twenty-four hours a day)

Pulsed electromagnetic fields dosing impacts postoperative pain in breast reduction patients

2015 Background Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) reduce postoperative pain and narcotic requirements in breast augmentation, reduction, and reconstruction patients. PEMF enhances both calmodulin-dependent nitric oxide and/or cyclic guanosine monophosphate signaling and phosphodiesterase activity, which blocks cyclic guanosine monophosphate. The clinical effect of these competing responses on PEMF dosing is not known. Methods Two prospective, nonrandomized, active cohorts of breast reduction patients, with 15 min PEMF per 2 h;

Clinical trial beginning April 2022: Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy in Thumb CMC Arthritis

Brief Summary: Long-Term Objective: Determine if high-frequency PEMF therapy reduces pain and improves function in patients with thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) joint osteoarthritis (OA) and if this is secondary to physiological changes. Study Design and Methods: This will be a randomized controlled pilot study with 54 subjects with CMC OA randomly divided in two groups. Twenty-seven

Clinical trial for PEMF for chronic wounds (ongoing, August 2022)

AUGUST 2022 Detailed Description: The goal of the three-arm trial is to employ application of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) directly over chronic wounds combined with standard of care local wound therapy (SOC). Three different PEMF devices, one a low power system (LP-PEMF), another a high power system (HP-PEMF) and the third a sham device that

24 Prevalence, Usage, and Perceptions of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) in the Equine Industry

March 2022 Abstract The use of alternative therapies in the equine industry is increasing in popularity and spans manual manipulation to more progressive forms of technology. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) has shown to reduce pain and increase range of motion within human and canine medicine. Often, PEMF is touted to improve performance and reduce
