The MS-14 is a low intensity PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) equipment.
This technology, which has been in existence since the 1950s, is beneficial for a wide range of pathologies and has scientific support from the medical literature that supports its use.
PEMF treatments were first used by Soviet Union astronauts in space missions and later NASA researched and patented their use as a way to prevent bone loss, muscle atrophy and fatigue, especially for astronauts during and after space travel.
This type of medical equipment is used to treat many conditions such as depression, fractures, post-operative edema, pain and superficial soft tissue regeneration.
Its use is also widely known by athletes who seek to improve their athletic performance due to the effect of increasing cellular uptake of oxygen after treatment.
The effectiveness of PEMF in treating various pathologies has been proven in numerous medical studies around the world.
- The healing time for bone fractures is substantially reduced
- Stimulates cartilage growth, increasing collagen production.
- Increases muscle relaxation.
- Increases healing potential in chronic wounds and ulcers.
- Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis
- pain reduction
- Increased growth of osteoblasts and osteoclasts (bone cells)
- Positively impact bone remodeling and microfracture healing.
- Improves sports performance
- Allows for faster recovery time.
- Stimulates muscle energy production and oxygen uptake
How does it work?
A strong magnetic field is obtained when an electrical current flows through the wires inside the rim (solenoid) in the device. Since the current is varied (and the wave and field shape modulated), the MS-14 generates a pulsed magnetic field.
The variation in frequency and intensity allows different biological effects on cells through the depolarization of cell membranes by electromagnetic waves. Namely, it stimulates the piezoelectric effect necessary for bone growth and self-regulation
How long does it take?
We recommend between 10 to 15 sessions to get the best results.
