Many people are familar with PEMF, since it has been
in human use since the 1970's to heal non-union fractures. Although
products manufactured by Respond Systems are not for human use, Bio-Pulse
PEMF systems have been in use for over ten years on the most expensive
performance horses in the world.. PEMF uses pulsing magnetic fields,
developed by pulsing a small amount of battery current through coils
of wire, to initiate normal biological cellular reactions that result
in improved circulation and provide pain relief.
simply, cells contain electrically charged particles, called ions,
which cause a weak,
natural electrical current to flow. Changes in the electrical properties
of cells result in the activation of various ion "pumps",
which move nutrients back and forth across the cell wall. PEMF creates
a magnetic field in motion, which activates the pump. The resulting
change in pump action improves the metabolic rate of the cell.
The most effective form of signalling cells is to
send a series of magnetic
pulses, of the proper frequency and wave form to stimulate cellular
action. The Bio-Pulse systems generate a frequency and wave form
which was recommended as the most effective by Dr. C.A. Bassett in
his landmark work at Columbia University Hospital.
Couldn't I expect the same results? You can't expect the
same results. Without the on/off, expanding, collapsing magnetic
field, which is what characterizes the pulsing of the Bio-Pulse system,
you cannot influence the ions in the same manner. Static magnets
are unchanging; their magnetic fields remain permanently placed.
They cannot impact the ions and change the pumping action. Effects
from static magnets are confined to the specific area on which they
are placed, most only affecting tissue within half an inch of the
magnetic field developed by the coils in the bed and in the jacket
are large enough to penetrate the major joints and muscles of the
body. In fact, if you hold a test magnet close to a coil, and gradually
move the test magnet away from the coil, you will still feel the
pulsing from 12-18 inches away. This means that a 30 minute session
is enough for most animals to realize a noticeable benefit.
Don't forget that the
best veterinarians in the world recommend Bio-Pulse for their clients,
and have used the systems on their own pets! For example:
"I started using the Bio-Pulse on my 15 year old, 12 pound
Schipperke due to arthritic changes. She was stiff and sore in the
front, and often lame, especially on the right front leg. After three
weeks of using the Bio-Pulse, this dog was moving with more comfort;
now she runs and races, setting a pace I can hardly match. Several
people that have encountered us have remarked that she moves so lightly
that she hardly seems to touch the ground, indicating to me that
she is moving with much more comfort and enjoyment." Shirley
"The Bio-Pulse products can
be used very effectively on older animals with orthopedic and constitutional
disease. My 16 year old
Jack Russell terrier, in spite of advanced age and heart failure,
was able to sleep after using the bed, for the first time in many
weeks. Cats with congenital kidney disease and arthritis would
seek out the bed when it was on, providing them comfort."
