The Pinnacle of PEMF The Pulse Centers PEMF technology series includes three models—the XL Pro, X1, and X. Each incorporates the latest advancements and upgrades — and thus revised Pulse Centers PEMF product names. But you’ll frequently hear our equipment lauded by one of its earlier designs and previous product names, which could be any of the following: The Magna Charger (2007) MG-33 (2008-2011) MG Pro-3 (2011-2012) MagnaCharger Pro 10 (2013) NRG Pro (2015) Pulse XL Pro (2016-present) The solid-state systems, designated as “Pro,” were renamed to the Pulse XL Pro in 2016 due to branding conflicts. The Magna Charger (2007) MG-33 and MG Pro-3 are now retired from the production fleet, although still supported by customer service. Perfecting PEMF PEMF takes alternating current (AC) and transforms it into DC, producing controllable intensity variations ranging from low to high. As the voltage passes through a coil embedded in the body applicator, it emits a pulsed magnetic field. With each pulse, electrons inside the body are stimulated while the electrically charged cell membrane of each is gently pulled. In between pulses, cells relax. Essentially, the cells are exercising, like a person doing jumping jacks. This animation accommodates the intake of oxygen and nutrients while dispelling toxins. Perfecting machines that provide this stimulus has been Paul Webb’s passion since 2006, upon his first encounter with PEMF. Purchasing a machine built in the garage of a private home in California, the technology performed wonders on Paul’s well-being, but its operational reliability offended his sense of excellence. Frequently required repairs acquainted Paul with the machine’s inner workings, which was encased in an off-the-shelf plastic Storm case. Its sub-standard wiring and connectors were borrowed from the audio industry. Electrical eruptions on a level accurately described as mini explosions sometimes occurred even during normal use. Back in his California garage, the machine’s developer showed little interest in Paul’s frustrations with reliability. Ever the entrepreneur, only months after his introduction to PEMF Paul launched a design and manufacturing enterprise to elevate not only the reliability of PEMF, but also to advance the functionality and results PEMF could offer. Pulsed Power Technologies Pulsed Power Technologies was incorporated January 2007. The company’s first production model, the Magna Charger, solved the reliability issues Paul had experienced personally. This first unit featured an orange faceplate on the same black, plastic off-the-shelf Storm case of the garage-made brands, but with significantly improved spark gap technology and upgraded user interface. Once specialty engineers developed additional safety measures and platform improvements, an upgraded model went to market in 2008, the MG-33. Over the next few years, ongoing upgrades were incorporated into the MG-33 –- both aesthetically and functionally. The MG-33 was in production through June of 2011, at which time it was re-introduced under the name X1, featuring an aircraft-grade aluminum case designed with developmental assistance from Applied Pulsed Power (APP), recognized experts in high-voltage PEMF. First Electronic, Solid-State Machine But the R&D collaboration with APP also crossed a major milestone in June 2011. The most advanced spark-gap technology was still a mechanical system subject to significant maintenance requirements and the fact that each machine produced its own unique pulsing characteristics, thwarting uniform application and thus producing less consistent results. “We wanted to design the most advanced system in the world that had features never before seen in the category of PEMF,” Paul recalled, pointing out that APP designs engineering solutions for the military, university research labs, and medical device manufacturers in the areas of high voltage, high current, and pulsed electromagnetic field generators. The result was the world’s first PEMF machine to be: fully electronic microprocessor-based high-powered such that dual body-application accessories could be applied simultaneously solid-state construction It was housed in a Faraday cage, advancing the overall safety of the technology. This was the MG Pro-3, which shortly thereafter was upgraded from 3Hz maximum output to 10Hz and renamed NRG Pro for a brief period before marketing/branding considerations resulted in today’s XL Pro. With 10Hz (or 10 pulses per second) power, the XL Pro enables both two accessory ports, and body application accessories such as the 10-inch paddles and 6-inch rings — dual applicators. “Each and every piece in our complete line of accessories is also a first in high-powered PEMF,” Paul explained. “Having two completely separate magnetic fields in one accessory had never been accomplished before, as well as being able to use two accessories at the same time allowing for up to four separate magnetic fields to work many different areas of the body simultaneously. This provides a level of results that no other PEMF device can match. “In addition,” he added, “we have pioneered the elimination of any dead spots in our accessories.” Photo at left shows the XL Pro Elite Package, which includes the dual paddles and rings in addition to three other body-application accessories.
