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 our focus is to provide devices that generate frequencies and waveforms that utilize pulsed electromagnetic fields. Our newest generation of high-value frequency therapy products offer a wide range of application possibilities.
Where did PEMF therapy come from?
Our technology is based upon research from the former Soviet Union. Germany, Hungary and the Czech Republic border Austria and when these countires gained their independence, their scientific medical research and electronic devices became available to the western world. The main body of research in frequency therapy began in 1952, at the Technical University of Munich in Germany when professor Winfried Schumann mathematically predicted that the earth had a pulse, a resonant frequency of around 10 pulses per second.
Subsequent research on test subjects in Germany showed that if the earth’s natural magnetic resonant field was removed, our health would quickly deteriorate. In an attempt to reverse that process, a frequency generator was utilized to introduce artificial magnetic fields into the test chamber, and it was discovered that 7.83 hertz was the ideal artificial frequency to support life. That frequency, 7.83 Hz is now known as the Schumann Resonance. This discovery, ignored by western medicine was embraced by the Soviet Union. They decided to develop a healthcare system based upon an earlier form of electrotherapy that now utilized frequencies for electric acupuncture and electromagnets. Like NASA, the Soviet space program provided their citizens with many medical breakthoughs that were used to keep the cosmonauts healthy in space.
Our engineers at MAS decided to expand upon this early Soviet research to create a scientific medical device that was not only capable of creating a high intensity magnetic field using a 7.83 Hertz frequency, but also had the versatility to generate a wide range of frequencies AND waveforms at very high intensities. Finding the right combination is the key to creating a “one box does all” product. Our frequencies and magnetic fields were provided to the patient using magnetic coils that were embedded into round cylinders.
MAS Modernization – The Mat and Pillow
Our next incarnation of the MAS product eliminated the cumbersome round cylinders and was replaced with a comfortable mattress pad that contained 17 electromagnetic coils. The controller unit remained virtually the same because our frequency therapists did not want to loose the capability of custom programming. Many studies with the new mat were carried out at this time, the frequencies were fine tuned and new multi-waveforms were added to compliment the original sinusoidal base waveform.
In 2008, we decided to modernize the design of our controller unit to allow for easier programming and to incorporate the latest frequencies and waveforms that have become realized by scientific research. Our 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 7.83 Schumann resonance frequency and to allow a wide variety of frequency and wave forms. It’s now nicely wrapped up in a elegant stylish package.
