When you purchase a MAS, the first thing that you will notice when you lift the mat or pillow out of the box, is the heavy weight of the applicators. Since MAS can also reproduce a gentle safe-to-use analog Sine Wave at frequencies up to 10,000 Hz, the applicators require a very dense magnetic field to cause a bio-magnetic effect within the body.
Many PEMF manufactures choose to use sawtooth like waveforms that do not require a strong magnetic field to produce a biological effect – using a high magnetic field to deliver a sawtooth wave would be detrimental to the patient. In these cases only a few windings of copper coils are needed to create an electromagnetic field in the applicators and they can be cheaply produced.
New to the market are PEMF devices that use a copper loop that is energized with very high intensities to create a single sharp pulse. The only control is the power of the magnetic field. They flood the body with electrons to temporarily alleviate pain.
Finding the Right Dose
MAS uses a mathematical formula based on the frequency and shape of the wave to determine the correct intensity of the field. To deliver the widest range of frequencies and wave shapes in the industry, MAS decided not to cut corners and realize that thick copper coils, a form of semiprecious metal will produce the highest quality magnetic fields via all wave shapes at all frequencies.
The magnetic coils are supported in soft yet firm high impact foam to protect the Tesla coil from damage. The pillow is comfortable to use anywhere on the body especially under the head for improving microcirculation and to reduce inflammation.
MAS makes several versions of Tesla coils that are best suited to the intensity, frequency and wave shape from the analog generator controller unit. The higher the intensity, the greater the diameter and thickness of the coil is required.
The MAS Special-Multi+ mat contains 17 ¾ inch thick copper coils consisting of two sizes to allow for an even distribution throughout the entire surface area. The size of the coil determines the frequency range that can be produced. The larger coils effectively produce the low frequencies and the smaller coils produce higher frequencies. The MAS controller unit can generate a wide variety of complex wave shapes that contain bundles of frequencies inside carrier frequencies – such as the popular sawtooth waveform – it’s important to have the MAT accurately reproduce all the nuances contained within the magnetic field.
Intensity of MAS
MAS is considered to be a medium intensity machine, capable of producing up to 100 Gauss in intensity in the pillow applicator via a sine wave. When using sawtooth waves, the machine automatically limits the intensity to 1% of the total output. Various multi resonance wave shapes that MAS has developed also have their power adjusted to the right amplitude to allow for effective therapy.
With the recent introduction of USA made high intensity TENS like PEMF devices that stimulate the nervous system by flooding the body with electricity, the world of magnetic field therapy has become polluted with a great deal of misinformation as ill informed sales staff attempt to gain market share by presenting false information about competitors products.
Some simply state that more power is better to treat pain – and it is for some conditions when used by skilled professionals in a clinical situation for short durations. Most high intensity device manufactures advertise that high power is needed to treat pain – but it all depends upon where the pain originates from.
Flooding the body with high powered targeted electric fields will often act as a temporary pain reliever like a powerful opioid, but that that does not mean it is treating the root of the problem and comes side effect or addiction free.
Doctors from the former Soviet republics and German speaking countries trained in the professional use of magnetic field therapy understand that the best way to treat the body is to learn to speak the language of the cell. It requires the right frequency (the note) the wave shape (the tone) and the intensity (the volume) so that the magnetic energy will help the cells regenerate into wellness.
