How to choose the right Curatron model  for your applications?

Lots of confusion exists for the correct applications of the different PEMF technologies.

On this page some suggestions are given which technology to choose for what applications.

PEMF FLASH Impulse technology (some call them ringer PEMF devices)

The very high intensity of the PEMF Flash pulses create short electromagnetic pulses of around one milli second, which is 1/1000 of a second.

Each individual very high intensity impulse will fully penetrate the body, mainly within and around the coil location. Because this pulse is short in duration the average quantity of energy transferred into the body is relatively low and multiple or longer treatment sessions would be required to transfer also energy into the body, especially for whole body treatment. The use of the term Energy Medicine for this technology might not be optimal because the total amount of energy inside each pulse is lower than so called true PEMF .

One of the effects of this high intensity impulse technology that muscle contractions occur in high settings. These muscle contractions happen because the high inducted electrical currents inside the muscles trigger the electrical contraction function of the muscles.

This form of PEMF “pulse injection” could be compared to some extend to a “numbing-up” shot at the dentist before the drilling starts and then slowly weans off. This effect is also called a "nerve block" and "turns off" the pain signal.

For what can PEMF Flash technology be used? Very short treatment times like minutes are mostly used for fast pain relief usually lasting for days and for local treatment . In case this technology is used for less energy transfer into to body and more impulses are needed compared to "true" PEMF energy medicine technology and for this longer treatment times are used like 30 minutes.  

For long term pain relief the underlying cause for the pain needs to be treated. For this the Curatron true PEMF energy medicine technology might be preferred because this not only does treat the source of the pain but in addition transfers into the human body a large quantity of energy and as such does treat the actual problem, resulting in long term pain relief.

PEMF Energy Medicine or "true" PEMF (some call them oscillating or hummer PEMF devices)

For many other applications the classic "true" form of PEMF technology is recommended.

This also includes long lasting pain relief in addition to all other applications (also mentioned elsewhere on this website).

Increase of cellular energy, increase of peripheral circulation, increase of oxygen uptake, strengthening of the immune system, detoxification, wellness, long lasting pain relief, athletic performance, general health etc. etc. are all excellent applications for high quantity of energy medicine Curatron PEMF applications.

In this picture a graphical energy comparison is presented to show the differences in energy quantity (contents) between PEMF Flash and PEMF Energy Medicine.

The orange surfaces contain the energy contents of 4000 Gauss very fast and high intensity pulses, while the blue surfaces contain the 500 Gauss energy contents of the “regular” PEMF pulses.


It is now easily seen that FLASH technology is excellent e.g. for very fast pain relief because of the “numbing-up” effect, while classical true PEMF pulse energy medicine has a longer lasting pain relief but might take longer to take effect. This is because the result of the average healing energy quantity inducted into the body, does take more time than the very short high intensity pulses. In comparison, similar long lasting effects of PEMF therapy can be obtained with flash technology however the total amount of treatment time needed would be longer.

In Conclusion:

We are often asked what system should be bought for what application and here under is a table giving some indications.

Many customers buy a Curatron XPSE with full body mat and very high energy coil, which fully satisfy their needs and we receive numerous emails telling us about their very positive experiences. Having said this we lately see more and more customers buying a Premium-Flash or Ultra-Flash system to obtain as fast as possible tangible results.

Most doctors buy either both the Ultra-Flash and/or the Curatron 3D system to cover all possible applications they have in their practice.

All chiropractors buy the Ultra-Flash, which results in a very high satisfaction effect by their customers.
