Venous Insufficiency Studied With PEMF ElectroMagnetic Therapy

This study examined effects of alternating magnetic fields (15-20 minutes per day over a period of
20 days) in patients suffering from chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and trophic shin
ulcers. Results showed good effects in 236 of the 271 patients receiving the treatment. Thirty-four
patients reported satisfactory effects. Only one patient experienced no effects.

This study examined the effects of running impulse magnetic fields in patients suffering from vessel
obliteration diseases of the legs. Treatment consisted of 15- 20 whole body exposures (0.5-5 mT,
1-2 Hz) lasting 15-20 minutes each. Results showed treatment led to a significant reduction in the
number of patients experiencing leg pain while at rest. Among patients previously unable to walk a
500-m distance, 52 percent were able to complete the distance following treatment. Circulation
improved in 75-82 percent of patients.

This study found that patients suffering from various oral diseases experienced more rapid healing
when treated with both conventional therapies and 30 minutes per day of pulsed electromagnetic
fields (5 mT, 30 Hz), as opposed to conventional therapies alone.
