The Assisi technology has been demonstrated to improve wound healing 58% faster than wounds which have not received PEMF Therapy.1 There are many reports of the use of electrical currents to enhance chronic wound healing, with varied, and sometimes equivocal, results.2 Assisi tPEMF® technology provides you with a method of safely and non-invasively inducing targeted electrical currents to enhance wound repair, without the necessity of direct skin contact.3 The tPEMF therapy may be used to enhance wound repair in virtually all post-surgical cases. There have been no reports of the use of electrical current applied with skin electrodes to enhance acute wound repair, primarily because patient morbidity would increase rather than decrease.
In tendon healing, not all PEMF signals are equal; Assisi’s targeted PEMF signals make the difference.
