About MAS PEMF Therapy
MAS stands for MAgnetic Systems and was established over 23 years ago. The MAS Medical Product Trade GmbH is headquartered in Leibnitz/Austria and the focus is to provide devices that generate frequencies and waveforms that utilize pulsed electromagnetic fields. The newest generation of high-value frequency therapy products offer a wide range of application possibilities.
Where did PEMF therapy come from?
This technology is based upon the Tesla Coil named after the inventor of AC electricity – Nikola Tesla. In the early 1900’s, Tesla was experimenting with electromagnetic field therapy and this technology was eventually used by doctors that embraced the new discovery of electricity to treat a wide variety of health conditions. The Electrotheraputic Society was started in Buffalo NY ( known at that time as the Electric City) because it was close to the hydro electric generators that Tesla invented at Niagara Falls. The abundant source of electricity allowed electrotherapy to prosper in hospitals, clinics and doctors offices. Unfortunately, commercial and political aspirations resulted in the prohibition of electromagnetic field therapy and western medical schools omitted it from their curriculum. While electrotherapy was suppressed in the West, the socialist countries within the former Soviet Union whole hardly embraced it because of it’s low cost and no side effects.
One main body of research in electromagnetic frequency therapy began in Germany after the war in 1952 at the Technical University of Munich. Professor Winfried Schumann mathematically predicted that the earth had a pulse that resulted from lightning strikes and the resonant frequency was 7.83 pulses per second. That frequency, 7.83 Hz is now known as the Schumann Resonance. Subsequent German research in the 1960’s were funded by NASA at the Max Plank Institute in Germany that demonstrated if the Schumann frequency was shielded and removed from our body, our health would quickly deteriorate. Our circadian rhythm or natural body clock would go out of sync with the earth’s electric field. In an attempt to reverse that process, a frequency generator was utilized to introduce artificial electric fields into the test chamber and it was discovered that 10 hertz, very close to the 7.8 Schumann Resonance was an ideal artificial electric field to support life and normalize our circadian rhythms.
This discovery of our relationship and dependance on the Earth’s natural rhythm was mostly ignored by western medicine but was embraced by Germany and the Soviet Union’s space programs to keep their flight crews healthy during and after space travel. The Soviet space program provided their citizens with many electromagnetic medical breakthroughs and all hospitals offered some form of electromagnetic field therapy. When East Germany and West Germany were reunited, their bioelectric medical research were shared with companies in Hungary and the Czech Republic and they started to manufacture electromagnetic medical devices for home use. MAS is Austrian based and they formed relationships with these PEMF companies and this is where MAS formed it’s roots.
The engineers at MAS decided to expand upon the early Tesla – Soviet research to create a scientific device that was not only capable of creating a high intensity magnetic field using a 7.83 Hertz frequency, but it also had the versatility to generate a wide range of frequencies AND most importantly several waveform shapes at very high intensities. Unlike the competition PEMF devices currently on the market that offer limited frequencies and waveforms – MAS allows you to generate sine, square, sawtooth and multi-resonace waveform shapes. This is the key feature of MAS. This combination of 9,999 frequencies and various waveform shapes is the key to creating a “one box does all” product. No other product on the market offers these features.
MAS Modernization – The Mat and Pillow
The next incarnation of the MAS product eliminated the restrictive round Tesla coils and were replaced with a comfortable mattress pad that contained 17 flat copper electromagnetic Tesla coils. This is another key feature of MAS. These coils of various shapes and sizes are evenly displaced throughout the mat so that it can deliver an even electromagnetic field. The controller unit remained virtually the same in function because the frequency therapists did not want to loose the capability of custom programming. Many studies with the new mat were carried out at this time and the frequencies were fine tuned and new multi-waveforms and waveform shapes were added to compliment the original sinusoidal base waveform.
In 2008, MAS decided to modernize the design of their controller unit to allow for easier programming and to incorporate the latest frequencies and waveforms that have become realized by scientific research. The Mat and Pillow remain the same but the styling of the control unit has changed. It’s still incorporates the original intent of the first frequency generator – to supply the true 7.83 Schumann resonance frequency and to allow a wide variety of other popular frequency and wave form shapes such as the 10 HZ NASA square wave and the low intensity sawtooth wave found in several home use PEMF devices. It’s now nicely wrapped up in a elegant stylish package.
If you are looking for a device that is fully programable, and contains all of the most popular frequencies and waveforms – the MAS is the only device on the market that offers this versatility in one device at an affordable cost. Pricing starts at $4,800 US dollars.
