Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®) with the MAGNETOLITH® opens up new possibilities in regeneration and rehabilitation. The areas of application include diseases of the musculoskeletal system such as lower back pain and tendinopathies of the rotator cuff or achilles tendon. EMTT® differs from general forms of magnetic field therapy or PEMF due to the high oscillation frequency of 100 – 300 kHz. This property enables a high penetration depth (18 cm) and a large range of indications.
At a glance
- Non-invasive, ambulant therapy – no reported side effects
- Wide range of therapeutic applications
- High oscillating frequency with deep penetration
