PEMF or Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields have been widely accepted for many years. The literature shows they are useful for everything from pain to stimulation of stem cells. A PubMed search for PEMF shows 464 publications about this subject wheseas a Google search for PEMF gives 493,000 results!
Micro current is current in millionths of an ampere. An ampere is a measure of the movement of electrons past a point. Microamperage current is the same kind of current your body produces on its own within each cell. This is current in millionths of an amp. It is very small; there is not enough current to stimulate sensory nerves so the current flow cannot be felt. You can tell it is running by watching the conductance meter on the machine. FDA has approved all microcurrent devices for sale in the category of TENS devices. TENS devices are for pain control only and deliver milliamperage current. ALL TENS devices carry the same warnings precautions and contraindications. Microcurrent devices deliver micro amperage current not milliamperage current but the warnings for the device are same because all microcurrent devices are approved in the category of TENS devices.
For example, the Tennant BioModulator® is a microcurrent device that has been accepted by the FDA as a Class II TENS device. It is a Frequency Selective Microcurrent PEMF device with an imploding waveform.
The Tennant Biomodulator®¹ and certain accessory electrodes are FDA listed by its distributor or manufacturer in these categories:
21 CFR 882.5890 – Neurology transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator for pain relief
21 CFR 882.5050 – Neurology biofeedback device
Indications for use:
Symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain
Adjunctive treatment in the management of post-traumatic surgical and post-traumatic pain
Relaxation training and muscle relaxation
Any uses beyond those published by the FDA above cannot be discussed on this standard-of-care website. For a better understanding of the role of voltage in health and disease, it is recommended that you read Healing is Voltage: The Handbook and Healing is Voltage: Cancer's On/Off Switches.
