PEMF Contraindications

We are asked from time to time, what are the typical Warnings and Contraindications. The list below is not an exhaustive list, it does represent many of the major concerns.



The Curatron 2000 is indicated for:

  • Pain relief
  • Bone regeneration
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis Therapy
  • Fibromyalgia Therapy


Although there are no absolute contraindications or side effects, YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE SYSTEM  under the following conditions:

  • Pregnancy


  • PEMF-Contraindications

    Electrically or magnetically operated shunts

  • Cardiac Pacemakers  or Cardiac Defibrillators
  • Deep brain stimulators
  • Gastric Stimulators
  • Insulin Pumps
  • Foot Drop Implants
  • Cochlear implants
  • Other implanted electronic devices


  • Continuous use of this device for the same person is not advised.
  • Keep magnetic cards (e.g. credit cards) at a distance of at least 50 cm (Two Feet) from the applicator when the system is active, to avoid damage of the data on the magnetic strip.


  • Safety of PEMF for use during pregnancy has not been established.
  • Caution should be used for users with suspected or diagnosed heart problems.
  • The device should be kept out of the reach of children.
  • The device is only to be used with the original applicators supplied by the manufacturer.


  • During a session a person may feel a certain sensation of warmth or euphoria. These feelings are normal and are not a contraindication. They are more of a benefit.


  • Do not obstruct the air ventilation of the unit. Keep sufficient space around the device to guarantee sufficient cooling area to avoid damage to the generator inside.
  • Do not penetrate the applicators with sharp or cutting objects.
  • Do not open the applicators and try to remove its cover for any reason.
  • Do not connect the Curatron unit via an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS). Some UPS units do not generate standardized sinusoidal mains voltage and they might destroy the output generator of the Curatron. Any use of an UPS unit voids warranty.

8 thoughts on “PEMF Contraindications”

  1. I would like to know if a person who had lipotransfer with own stem cells can use a pemf on her breasts.

  2. Yes, no problem. We have several clients using the Curatron 2000 systems following stem cell injection.

  3. Continous use is not advised. Could this statement be more articulate? For instance in osteoporosis presence what to do? Times and stop advised?

  4. Maria, the manuals for the XPSE, PC, and 3D have sections for the treatment of Osteoporosis. Continuous use is not recommended with any of our systems, not necessarily because it’s harmful but we see little advantage in going beyond roughly one-hour per day.

  5. I suppose what you mean by continuous use; is use outside the advised daily treatment times; and not prolonged treatment over time? (That is; not several hours in any one day?)

  6. Colin

    I’m sorry that I missed this question earlier. We do not recommend usage of more than about one hour a day on any one area of the body. We do not believe that there is an advantage of treating for longer periods of time.

  7. Thanks Chris, but if used one hour a day over a prolonged period would be fine! On the Curatron home; they give 10 programs; but only a few of those programs give treatment conditions. Although Curatron give an extensive list of conditions which would benefit from PEMF; they do not specify which program should be used for each condition.

  8. Which system do you own? The Curatron 2000 HT is a relatively low power system. It also is simple to operate. The programs available for the HT are listed on this page (See The more advanced systems provide tables for various protocols in their respective user manuals. In our PC and 3D systems we provide drop-down tables in the software to select from roughly 100 options. A partial listing of these protocols is listed in the 3D flyer. See
