Spark Systems versus PEMF Systems

Spark Systems versus PEMF Systems

We consider the Curatron to be a full PEMF system in that it genuinely generates magnetic pulses rather than RF pulses, The PMT120 and others generate probably what can be called an RF pulse similar to those generated by Marconi, Tesla and others demonstrating early forms of radio communication. Marconi used a spark gap that would fire when the voltage across it was high enough to discharge across a preset air gap in the way that lightning occurs when a cloud’s voltage is so high that it has to discharge by creating a spark between the cloud and the ground.

Think of a spark gap and a capacitor in the same way that you would think of water flowing into a tipping bucket that tips and empties itself when the water level reaches a point when gravity takes over causing the bucket to tip. In the case of Marconi and others, they used a tuned circuit so the energy dispensed when their spark gap fired would generate a single frequency and its harmonics into an antenna. The spark systems are similar but there is no tuned circuit and the antenna is the coil or length of wire attached.

A true PEMF system creates a magnetic field caused by a high current in a coil like an electromagnet. PEMF systems are highly controllable. Spark systems generate a series of pulses. The pulse magnitude is dependent on the size of the capacitor (bucket) and the pulse frequency (time between pulses) is dependent on the firing point of the spark gap, basically a semi-controllable bolt of lighting. Maximum voltages in the Curatron system are very low, perhaps 100 Volts or so in comparison to tens of thousands of volts in a spark system where the voltages can reach 30 to 40 kV It’s the high current passing through coil(s) that generate magnetic energy.

It’s a shame that the spark systems use the PEMF name. They really should be called something else to differentiate them from PEMF machines. I remember when MRI machine technology was called NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance). the word nuclear, scared everyone and the name became MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) was born. Of course the word nuclear was used as it is the nucleus of the atoms in our bodies that was referenced, not nuclear energy.

3D Spine Simulator – Looks very useful.

Every now and again as one wanders the interweb, one finds some interesting or perhaps educational stuff. I was wandering through some of my twitter followers (I’m @PEMFT on Twitter) I came across an interesting site created for a chiropractic center in Michigan. The site is http://shunkwilerchiropractic.com and the interesting thing I found is an interactive spine simulator. (more…)

Curing Cancer with PEMF. Wow! Can you do that?

Curing Cancer with PEMF. Wow! Can you do that?

The author, that’s me Chris Cane has real doubts and you will not find Amjo recommending or discussing the use of the Curatron for treating Cancer. I do realize that there are many sites out there that make claims that are simply cannot be supported. That being said, I did happen upon a very interesting page at www.cancer.org where they discuss alternate treatments and therapies. This page can be found by clicking  here. Some of the text from that article is shown below.

Square Wave Gated Sine Wave Carrier Frequency

The wave form generated and the power or magnetic flux density of our applicators is what sets us apart from all the others.

The Curatron waveform is unique and very difficult to create. Other systems use simple waveforms such as a simple square wave, a simple triangle wave or a a simple sawtooth wave. Each of those do not provide a high slew rate, rate of rise or Speed of Induction that is all too important in the world of PEMF. (more…)

Shoulders, Rotator Cuffs, Columbus Day and Canadian Thanksgiving

“I liked the shaver so much, I bought the company” (( The words of Victor Kiam when he bought Remington Products ))

In my case, “I liked the Curatron 2000 XP with the “A” Coil so much that I went out and bought myself a “B” Coil.

Canadian Thanksgiving Flag


Yeah, That’s me the author of this post and a co-owner of Amjo. It was October 11, 2011, this was day 283 of 2011.

It was Columbus Day and it was also Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Why do I mention that? Well I’m a Canuck and Cheryl and I went to Columbus on Columbus Day, which in itself seems ironic. We really went to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with our daughters, Jody the one who lives in Columbus (She’s the JO part of our company name. Our other daughter Amy and family were also visiting from their home near Cleveland. (Amy is the AM part of our company name). If you’re curious then you can learn a little more about AMJO (( Amjo Corp is our Small Business based near Cincinnati Ohio. Amjo Corp opened its doors in May of 1998 )) at www.amjo.net.
