Adaptation is not a good thing in PEMF.

Did you ever notice how quiet it gets during a power failure?

All the hum-drum background noises of fans, fridges, tv’s and radios simply stop…

Let’s face it we get used to repetitive noise! Read on…


Several brands of PEMF devices have fixed programs with fixed pulse widths and frequencies. PEMF therapy devices using only one specific pulsing frequency like 30 Hz for the complete therapy time necessarily cause these manufacturers to suggest therapy sessions once or twice a day for only 8 or 15 minutes. The reason for this ‘advice’ is that the body adapts to a specific pulsing frequency, making longer therapy times ineffective.

We get used to noise! We simply tune is out! When our environment changes, we notice the change. Our bodies tune out repetitive PEMF signals, our bodies notice the changing pulse widths and intensities.

For example, when sitting in a plane we all experience the noise made by the motors of the plane. After a short while, we hardly notice this noise anymore. This is due to the ability of our body to ‘adapt’ to the surrounding noise disturbances and thus ‘tune or cancel them out’.

The same holds true for electromagnetic fields, pulsing the whole time with the same frequency and intensity, which are a ‘disturbance’ for the body.

Our bodies adapt to the used pulsing frequency and after just a few minutes, the therapy effect starts to decrease. By changing the pulsing frequency every five or six minutes, this adaptation effect is avoided and effective therapy is thus realized for the whole therapy session, independent of the total therapy time, provided that the frequency steps are sufficiently apart for each time step. Curatron systems do change frequency every five or six minutes to prevent adaptation.

This is the reason why each Curatron model has 10 different programs (protocols) available. Each program consists of a different series of pulsed frequencies and intensities, which run automatically in sequence during the total therapy time. Each program is associated with its own therapy time sequence, assuring beneficial therapy efficacy for the chosen program. This results in effective PEMF therapy for the full time of the chosen program.
