What is
Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy EMTT?

EMTT ®
is a novel technology that uses high energy magnetic fields as a non- invasive
treatment solution that opens new possibilities in tissue regeneration and
rehabilitation. EMTT® can be used for diseases of the musculoskeletal system.
EMTT® perfectly complements extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT).

If
you’re an existing shockwave therapy user or not, EMTT® is fast becoming an
essential part of a clinical toolbox, opening up possibilities in musculoskeletal
treatments and acute pain that’s not been available before.

EMTT®
is not a replacement for Shockwave, far from it, these two devices treat very
different conditions. It is an excellent treatment to add to your current
shockwave treatment or as a stand-alone treatment. Early adopters of the novel
technology have described it as a ‘Game Changer’ for chronic
pain and arthritis – patients are loving it.

Therapeutic
magnetic fields are nothing new.

We are
surrounded by magnetic fields, in fact the Earth is one big magnetic field, our
homes are filled with appliances that use magnetic fields, such as speakers and
TV’s. MRI scans that use magnetic fields are also considered
one of the safest medical procedures available.  EMTT® uses magnetic
fields that have no thermal effect and are pain free, the strength of the
magnetic field used is approximately less than 10% of a normal MRI dosage.

Magnetic
fields used for therapeutic healing in the past has been limited to pulsed
electromagnetic field therapy or PEMF for short. PEMF has been around for 40 –
50 years, but differs vastly from EMTT ’s novel technology. PEMF is used for
healing non-healing fractures, the devices are cumbersome, the treatment
sessions are very long and a lot of sessions are required.

EMTT®
in comparison has a much higher energy output – approx. 40%
stronger than PEMF
, it also has a much higher oscillation and a greater
treatment depth of up to 18cm. The circular shape of the EMTT® handpiece allows
the device to produce a magnetic field with greater amplitude and therefore a
greater treatment depth and width, ideal for widespread pain therapy.

 

What
are the biological effects of EMTT ® ?
How does it interact with human tissue.

Energy
is transferred via the applicator to the body areas needing to be treated. With
EMTT’s level of pulse intensity it is possible to achieve a therapeutic effect
in the cell by increasing cell wall permeability, which is hindered by both the
ageing process and diseases. A stable cell membrane ensures permeability for
vital substances such as sodium-potassium, chemical reactions of the cells can
be positively influenced by EMTT® and normal cell processes can be achieved.

The magnetic energy basically acts as the key
to the cell wall gates, opening them up to help the body to repair itself by
accelerating cellular activity. The individual pulses penetrate the tissue so
that even deeper tissue layers can be reached. There is no temperature increase
in the tissue, thanks to the short duration of the individual pulses and the
integrated cooling system.

EMTT®
produces a strong anti-inflammatory effect, significant reduction in
pro-inflammatory cytokines (Varani et al 2008; Ongaro et all 2011).
