Clinical Evidence (by condition)


Formal Published Clinical Research


PEMF is indicated in assisting a broad range of chronic and acute conditions as detailed below.


PEMF at its most focussed is a clinically well-evidenced treatment modality that operates at the level of cellular processes. 


As with many clinical and scientific applications, its precise mechanisms are only partially understood. But, It is the many decades of earlier anecdotal evidence now combined with a large and rapidly expanding body of high-quality formal research that makes PEMF therapy's application ever more authoritative. 


This research and development production culminated in the seminal 2021 research meta-analysis of Mansourian and Shanei which drew together the clinical research evidence from over 2400 separate studies/trials etc  here


The conclusion of this study of 20 years of global university research:  In summary Intensity levels of 10-100 gauss (that’s 1-10 MilliTesla), provide the most effective intensity for effective treatment. All our devices deliver programmable intensities across this range and slightly beyond.


The drawing together of this research/clinical evidence was long overdue - as is the case of course with most emergent knowledge. The earlier anecdotal and isolated developments need to become scrutinised, replicated, incorporated and only then articulated to a wider audience. And no audience perhaps is more sceptical and demanding than healthcare clinicians! 


This work has cemented PEMF therapy’s clinical veracity as an effective and viable method to significantly enhance healing and repair. Likewise it has also elucidated much greater clarity as to the biological mechanisms and pathways through which PEMF acts. There are now solid and clinically identifiable cellular markers/processes with clearly defined and measurable outcomes.


And significantly. This is all achieved through the application of a simple, affordable, rapid, safe, non-invasive, drug-free, side-effect free, methodology


The evidence base listed in our Research Library (below), ranges across studies:  From osteoporosis to osteoarthritis. And from tendonitis and ligament lesions through to cartilage and accelerated bone regeneration. And from to Coronary Arterial Disease through to Hypertension. 


Similarly, its growing use among people with a range of non-specific or poorly understood conditions involving pain and inflammatory responses such as Fibromyalgia, CFS and Lupus, has now been investigated in detail through numerous double-blind university and hospital led research studies.


PEMF is also being increasingly being used professionally in the treatment of more acute injuries and disorders such as in wound and soft tissue healing, musculoskeletal problems, range of motion problems and non-union fractures. 


And finally, we are proud that with the Magneto family of devices, we are first PEMF provider to have successfully gone through the new UK Medical Device Regulation process - the new obligatory testing and certification process for all medical grade devices (covering: quality/safety/efficacy)

19. Cancer

There is a growing body of evidence finding that PEMF can be helpful for people with certain specific types of cancer. We are not qualified to evaluate to advise of course and strongly advise that you should discuss this with your oncologist before making any decisions. The referenced research papers below should be seen as a start point for such investigation, by a qualified specialist, as to the possible suitability of PEMF for particular, individual cases:

PEMF Therapy safety

PEMF is has been used for many decades and a large number of clinical studies have concluded it to be safe - even at much much higher intensities than we use.
