  • Cardiac Pacemakers  or Cardiac Defibrillators
  • Deep brain stimulators
  • Gastric Stimulators
  • Insulin Pumps
  • Foot Drop Implants
  • Cochlear implants
  • Other implanted electronic devices

WARNINGS

  • Continuous use of this device for the same person is not advised.
  • Keep magnetic cards (e.g. credit cards) at a distance of at least 50 cm (Two Feet) from the applicator when the system is active, to avoid damage of the data on the magnetic strip.

PRECAUTIONS

  • Safety of PEMF for use during pregnancy has not been established.
  • Caution should be used for users with suspected or diagnosed heart problems.
  • The device should be kept out of the reach of children.
  • The device is only to be used with the original applicators supplied by the manufacturer.

ADVERSE EVENTS

  • During a session a person may feel a certain sensation of warmth or euphoria. These feelings are normal and are not a contraindication. They are more of a benefit.

ADDITIONAL WARNINGS

  • Do not obstruct the air ventilation of the unit. Keep sufficient space around the device to guarantee sufficient cooling area to avoid damage to the generator inside.
  • Do not penetrate the applicators with sharp or cutting objects.
  • Do not open the applicators and try to remove its cover for any reason.
  • Do not connect the Curatron unit via an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS). Some UPS units do not generate standardized sinusoidal mains voltage and they might destroy the output generator of the Curatron. Any use of an UPS unit voids warranty.

4 thoughts on “PEMF Contraindications”

  1. I would like to know if a person who had lipotransfer with own stem cells can use a pemf on her breasts.

  2. Yes, no problem. We have several clients using the Curatron 2000 systems following stem cell injection.

  3. Continous use is not advised. Could this statement be more articulate? For instance in osteoporosis presence what to do? Times and stop advised?

  4. Maria, the manuals for the XPSE, PC, and 3D have sections for the treatment of Osteoporosis. Continuous use is not recommended with any of our systems, not necessarily because it’s harmful but we see little advantage in going beyond roughly one-hour per day.
