This unique invention, developed at an all-volunteer, nonprofit research institute, is a great medical breakthrough.
The principle was discovered decades ago but has never been widely distributed for the benefit of the public until now. The invention comes from the patented, medical and clinical research into electrotherapy, biomagnetics, bioelectromagnetics, sports performance enhancement, medical electricity and electromedicine. Particularly, this product involves the novel implementation of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) for those suffering from osteoarthritis, osteopenia or osteoporosis.
We use a special"SpiralToroid"magnetic field design with a toroid formed from an opposing pair of pancake coils in a special, FlexiCircuit TM which is soft and pliable, inside a waterproof vinyl sleeve, each pair together generates a toroidal (donut-shape) magnetic field that circulates about six inches above the pad to bath the body area with healing nanosecond rise time 250 Hz pulses (1% duty cycle) of gentle magnetic energy (milligauss range alternating, very narrow pulses), as diagrammed below.
This amazing pad with handmade, built-in pancake coils comprises the specific, patented signal for resonating with the bone calcium channels to open them for transport across the cell membrane, thussimulatingthe performance of weight-bearing exercise (as if you are lifting weights while you sleep). Its patents have expired but the three medical doctors never created the present consumer product though all three medical doctors Robert Becker(author of 'The Body Electric'),Andrew Bassett, and ArthurPillaknew their invention wouldpreventand reverse fractures, osteoporosis, and even arthritis, from clinical trials and numerous journal articles, so much so that they received patents on their similar magnetic coil circuit designs. However, they didn't make any device for the public and the FDA only approved bone-strengthening devices for use by doctors in the 1990s and 2000s. Dr. Valone studied their work for years, conversed with Drs. Becker and Pilla personally, and created the consumer electrotherapy unit which should have been on the market years ago. Then, a meeting with Glen Gordon, MD was the catalyst for designing this product since his EM Pulser signal is very universally beneficial and he used the same circuit in a pad in his own bed! We talked about making one available commercially but he could not find a reasonably priced method for making what we then agreed should be called "The OsteoPad" (click here for theOsteoPad spec sheet).Ten years later, we have fulfilled his dream after his passing. It is easy to use, with a flat pancake magnetic coil in a pad connected to the simple Control Box which can be set on the nightstand for all-night treatments. This product is reasonably priced and will help many senior people since "1 out of every 2 people" in the US suffers or will suffer from bone loss as they age, which is called osteoporosis since the bones become porous without weight-bearing exercise to stimulate the piezoelectric bone to open calcium channels naturally. Presently, 20 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis as well. Recent research has shown that cartilage is also piezoelectric and that pulsed EMFs, like the OsteoPad signal,can stimulate and restore cartilage("chondroprotection and chondrogenesis"), as well asreverse osteoarthritis.TheOsteoPadsignal does the work for you and lets your bones and cartilage to absorb calcium and magnesium directly, while you sleep! We also have introduced two new models :the "MaxiMat" which give a full body coverage since the MaxiMat is five (5) feet long and one (1) foot wide and the Maximat Double, same as above but with two (5) feet long pads.
Below is a photo of our naturopathic doctor, holding her completed design for the washable, zippered, flannel cover in front of our laboratory. Inside the cover is the protective foam layer sealing the dual spiral coils in place, which form a donut-shaped toroidal magnetic field, with significant flexibility between them and additional soft, high density foam layers so it can be comfortably used under the mattress cover of your bed. An additional, very durable, moisture-proof vinyl sleeve is also available for no extra cost for those elderly people who may be incontinent.
