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 electricians and 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, there were no regulatory bodies such as the FDA at that time and this gave rise to an over abundance of “Quack” electro-medical devices with limited or no medical benefit.
With the introduction of licensed medical universities, doctors and FDA regulated medicine – the practise of electrotheraputics was gradually omitted from the the course curriculam and replaced with pharmacology. While electrotherapy was suppressed in the western cultures, the socialist countries within the former Soviet Union whole hardly embraced it because of it’s low cost, few side effects and wide rage of uses.
The Introduction of German Medicine
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.
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 – up to 9,999 hertz AND most importantly it would generate 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, triangle, rectangle, sawtooth and multi-resonance waveform shapes. 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 wide range of features. It is for this reason why MAS is the choice for healthcare professionals.
MAS Modernization – The Mat and Pillow
The next incarnation of the MAS product eliminated the restrictive round Tesla coils and were replaced with a extremely durable comfortable mattress pad that contained 17 large 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 optimized electromagnetic field that is appropriate for the desired frequency and waveform shape.
The frequency generator 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 still incorporates the original intent of the first frequency generator – to supply the true earth based 7.83 Schumann resonance frequency and to allow a wide variety of other popular frequency and wave form shapes such as the NASA square wave and the low intensity sawtooth wave found in several popular home use PEMF devices. It’s now nicely wrapped up in a durable 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.
