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 explanations 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 extremely short electromagnetic pulses of less than a few hundred microseconds, which is less than 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 extremely short in duration the average quantity of energy transferred into the body is low and many treatment sessions would be required to transfer energy into the body.  


Whole body treatment is difficult because of the inherent localized ultra-short pulse effect. The use of the term Energy Medicine for this technology is misplaced because the quantity of energy inside each pulse is low.

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” may be compared to a “numbing-up” shot at the dentist before the drilling starts and then slowly weans off after a few hours or days. This effect is also called a "nerve block" and "turns off" the pain signal.

For what can PEMF Flash technology be used? Mainly for very fast local pain relief lasting usually for days. In case this technology is used for some energy transfer into to body, many impulses are needed compared to "true" PEMF energy medicine technology. This form of PEMF is mainly used for treating of pain symptoms or for very deep localized applications. 

For long term pain relief the underlying cause for the pain needs to be treated. For this the Curatron true PEMF energy medicine technology is preferably used, 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 (some call them oscillating or hummer PEMF devices)

For other applications than immediate pain relief 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 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 would be much longer.
