What is PEMF Exercise? PEMF Exercise uses pulsed electromagnetic fields to bathe low energy cells in pure, raw energy. Each cell in your body is actually a capacitor, or battery, which holds a charge. Your entire body is electrical and your cells each need a measurable electrical charge to function optimally. In order to maintain good wellness, cells must be doing their jobs. PEMF Exercise supports the body’s natural abilities to optimize balanced body functions –the definition of wellness. Who benefits from PEMF Exercise? Everyone in the modern world is subject to environmental stresses that can challenge optimal wellness. Today, our bodies rarely make direct contact with the earth which puts us closer to the inherent electromagnetic fields of energy from the earth. The charged atmosphere above us is a standing wave of energy that is stimulate thousands of times a second by lightning and an environment that humans evolved in. Today these natural energies are no longer experienced by people in their pure form. With the establishment of mobile internet, bluetooth and data transmissions, exposure levels have reached an unexpected dimension and quality. Therapeutic PEMF devices operate at an extremely low frequency, are non-ionizing and have been used safely around the world for decades. PEMF is an outside energy source that recharges stressed, underpowered cells like the batteries they essentially are so they can meet the energy demands for optimal cell function. Is it safe to use on anyone? Pulse Centers Systems are not medical devices and do not treat or cure diseases or their symptoms. They are designed for the delivery of varying pulse rates and strength under the user’s control for the purpose of passive exercise for the whole body with PEMF. Like any exercise equipment, it’s safe to use unless your doctor recommends otherwise. Why High Voltage (or High Intensity) PEMF as compared to Low Voltage? PEMF will pass completely through the body whether it is of high or low intensity. Human biology evolved in the magnetic fields of the earth and is affected by and responds to a vast range of magnetic field intensities. The difference is the amount of charge the field will stimulate in your tissues as it is passing through the body. Essentially, higher voltage is more effective when low voltage isn’t enough. High voltage PEMF also produces a sensation that patients can actually feel which helps reassure them the device is working. What is the amount of gauss that your systems produce? Please see the video on the left side of this page for a demonstration of the power produced by Pulse PEMF machines. The question about gauss gets a little twisted out of proportion. Why? Because there is virtually no way to prove if you’re being told the truth. You see, the pulse is on so brief and moves so fast even some of the most expensive gauss meters cannot pick up and record the peak power of the magnetic field. We have found great exaggeration in the written claims of other manufacturers. Why would they exaggerate how much gauss output? Bigger is better, right? It’s the American way. Very misleading at best, and definitely not true. Gauss is one factor of the system’s power. However, the delivery of it adds another dimension. Gauss output is part of our unique blueprint of proprietary technical data that makes our systems outstanding. What should I expect after my first session? PEMF can have a wide range of biologic effects. An individual’s diet, lifestyle, your level of activity, hydration, general health, stress levels and the quality of your nutrition all contribute to how it will work and how you feel after your sessions. PEMF Exercise can help you feel energized, and this feeling can build for a few hours after a session. Take note of how long this feeling lasts; it tells your doctor how many sessions you’ll need to achieve your goals. If you feel tired after a session, this may be due to a detox reaction. Your body wants to clean house and is getting rid of toxins. Resting and drinking plenty of fluids may support this detox reaction. Patients should talk to their doctors if this situation occurs. What do I remove before a session? Make sure you check your pockets and person and remove jewelry, watches, cell phones, credit cards and car key fobs. Place them about a foot away from the system. Also, people with electrical implants (pacemakers, cochlear implants) can’t use a PEMF device. Can you use the System on two patients at the same time? Technically it is possible, but practically it is not because individuals have different tolerability levels. Two different people who work out in a gym don’t lift the same amount of weight or perform the same amount of repetitions. Are Pulse Systems producing AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current)? The electricity that’s in the walls of all houses or buildings is AC current. That current goes into the machine where it is converted to DC– that is what travels into the accessory and gets delivered into the body. DC moves current in one direction. Your body’s nervous system is also a DC system. Which Pulse Centers system is the most powerful? The XL PRO is our most powerful and versatile system to date. It offers unprecedented variability and control of pulse rate and strength. Who do I contact if I have a problem with my System? We are fully staffed to respond to your email or phone call at email@example.com or (770) 334-2226 How do I find a practitioner with a system? Visit the “Locations” tab on our website and you will be able to search for practitioners across the map. What PEMF Exercise protocols do you provide? The Pulse Certified website provides suggested uses and positions of the accessories and general guidelines for session settings. We provide unlimited support calls to Product Specialists as well as one-on-one video conference training to ensure that you are able to get the best possible results based on an understanding of how to use the System. What is recommended prior to a session? The raw materials of good nutrition, physical exercise, supplementation and hydration can improve the benefits of a PEMF Exercise program. Along with these, we suggest Pulse Fuel nutritional supplement daily. What makes the Pulse Centers Systems different? We are the most powerful system on the market. The XL PRO is an industry first that allows the user independent control of the pulse rate and the strength. The XL PRO and the X1 are the only systems on the market that can power two accessories uniformly at once. We have produced the most advanced accessories. We are fully staffed to provide unlimited training and support. We build in a dedicated manufacturing site and a separate training facility in Atlanta, GA. What are the differences between the XL PRO and X1? The XL PRO is a solid-state system; there are no moving parts whereas the X1 is mechanical and utilizes spark-gap technology. The XL PRO requires no maintenance and software can be easily updated. The X1’s spark gap after many hours of use will wear and require cleaning or replacement over years of use. The XL PRO allows for independent control of the pulses per second and the strength of the pulse for customized settings to the comfort of the user and greater variability. As in all spark gap driven machines, (X1) the pulses per second and the intensity of the field are intertwined and both are changed with adjustment of the one knob that controls it. Higher intensity pulses will always be delivered in fewer pulses per second, and lower intensity pulses will always be delivered by a higher rate of pulses per second. Do the Pulse Centers Systems produce heat? So little as to be negligible. Can we use PEMF on people with stents, or metal implants? Yes. The magnetic field will not go through metal, but will go around implants to the surrounding tissue. Do the Pulse Centers Systems have automatic polarity switching? Yes. The field has a push-pull action on ion flow, aiding both inward and outward movement of ions through the cell membrane as it rises and collapses. This means the field generated is bipolar and reverses with each pulse. What waveforms are used? Our machines produce an impulse to create every pulse as a singular unique electromagnetic event. The impulse creates rectangular waves that “ring out” with saw tooth waves. What is the difference between PEMF Exercise and Electrosmog? Electrosmog describes the artificially created electrical, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields that first began developing with the rollout of the electrical grid a century ago. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field devices should not to be compared to 50/60 Hz electromagnetic radiation around high voltage power lines and transformers, which induce a continuous electromagnetic field. The goal PEMF system is to produce a magnetic field that penetrates the body and supports its natural functions. This requires a very long wavelength and low frequency. Most PEMF systems produce frequencies in the extremely low frequency to very low frequency range on the electromagnetic spectrum, much closer to the earth’s frequencies, are non-ionizing and have been used safely around the world for decades in clinical environments. What are the technical specifications for your systems? Our Systems produce all the power you will ever need. Our systems are fully adjustable in terms of magnetic field strength from low-to-high and each incremental change reflects a change in the gauss. The gauss is understandably varied based on the accessory being used and the settings. Our systems are more powerful than any US system we have tested. As a company Pulse Centers has continued to invest heavily in research, engineering and bringing real innovation to the marketplace establishing it as a leader in the category of high-powered PEMF devices. For this reason, we choose to keep the details of our unique advancements proprietary. Providing technical data is like handing over blueprints to your invention. How much space do I need for one of your systems? The amount of space you need would depend on your specific choice of system and accessories: Standard Package – 4 x 4 Area Premier Package – 4 x 6 Area Elite Package – 6 x 7 Area How many amps do your systems draw? The Pulse X and Pulse X1 draw 5 amps and pull around 500 watts. The Pulse XL PRO on the other hand draws 10 amps at 1200 watts at maximum power. Are you FDA approved? Our systems are not FDA approved. Our systems produce PEMF for the purpose of cellular exercise to support wellness. Pulse Centers makes no claims that the systems are intended to treat specific conditions. Claims are under the jurisdiction of the complex regulatory laws of the FDA. I am trying to compare other PEMF units with yours, how does yours compare? Let us be clear that all PEMF can be beneficial or produce a result. If we are comparing apples to apples we have to compare Pulse Centers systems (X, X1, XL PRO) to other high-intensity devices (PEMF 4000, 8000, PEMF 120, MagnaWave). You can liken it to the differences between makes and models of cars. Any model will get you from point A to B, but how you get there is the difference. Toyota is the manufacturer of both the Toyota Corolla and the Lexus LS 400, but no one would argue that their features, design and quality are worlds apart. The way Pulse Centers creates and delivers PEMF to your patient is with a system equivalent to the higher end Lexus. Look at the quality of the materials, and features of the machines themselves and especially the design differences of the accessories between those built by Pulse Centers and another manufacturer. Pulse Centers also invested in securing the license to an important patented component to insure protection of the internal circuitry from the powerful impulses created in the generator. The other two huge advantages of Pulse Centers XL PRO and X1 models are the “firsts” in the industry we are responsible for, including the ability to power two accessories simultaneously to address multiple areas effectively, as well as the independently adjustable magnetic field intensity and pulse rate. A side-by-side demonstration will show you just how important this is to getting the best possible result for a patient. And finally, we know who you choose to do business with is important. Pulse Centers commitment to reinvestment is reflected in our innovations and advancements that have not been duplicated in the industry. We maintain a dedicated Manufacturing Facility, Training and Demonstration Center, and have trained, full-time staff that provide unlimited support and a high level of customer service to wellness professionals and private owners.
