Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT® ) acts using high-energy electromagnetic radiation in a regional treatment area and provides a wide range of applications, patient comfort and ease of use.
EMTT®: How It Works
While EMTT relies on a different operating mechanism than ESWT, also known as shock wave therapy, does, the two modalities are highly effective when used together.
In the course of EMTT, painful areas of the body are treated with high-energy magnetic pulses, the field strength of which lies within the therapeutically effective range – 10 mT (millitesla) and upward. With this pulse intensity, it is possible to achieve a therapeutic effect in the cell. The generated energy is transferred via an applicator to the body areas to be treated. The individual pulses penetrate the tissue so that even deeper tissue layers can be reached. There is no temperature increase in the tissue, due to the short duration of the individual pulses.
When looking at the difference between EMTT and ESWT, ESWT acts using high-energy acoustic/physical signals in a local treatment area, while EMTT acts using high-energy electromagnetic radiation in a regional treatment area.
The MAGNETOLITH system includes:
- Simple and intuitive touch display
- Applicator for ease of use
- Integrated equipment trolley
- Flexible holding arm
- Applicator which can be disconnected from the holding arm for dynamic treatment
- Water-cooled applicator which allows for continuous and reliable operation
The Benefits of EMTT®:
- Wide range of applications
- Outpatient procedure
- No side effects
- Easy to use
- High level of patient comfort
Health care professionals are using EMTT to successfully treat musculoskeletal diseases to include:
- Degenerative joint diseases
- Wear and tear conditions such as osteoarthritis (knees, hips, hands, shoulders, elbows, herniated discs, spondylarthrosis)
- Pain treatment
- Chronic pain to include back pain, lumbago, tension, radiculopathy
- Sports injuries
- Chronic inflammation of tendons and joints, tendon overuse syndromes, inflammation of the pubic bone
