tPEMF® has been shown to have positive effects on both acute and chronic inflammation. Assisi signals virtually eliminate pain and significantly reduce swelling in rigorous laboratory and clinical studies.1 These results are comparable or superior to NSAIDs, without the potential for side effects.2
Assisi helps your patient heal faster by accelerating the natural anti-inflammatory cascade – non-invasively and without drugs. Assisi’s technology is proven in laboratory experiments with results published in peer-reviewed journals with demonstrated effect on the known biochemical and cellular mechanisms of action related to inflammation.
In veterinary medicine, Assisi devices have been used to treat arthritis, tendinitis, laminitis and other known inflammatory conditions.

Using the Assisi products immediately after a surgical procedure and in the days after surgery enhances healing by accelerating the reduction of swelling and pain. The tPEMF® system can manage post-surgical inflammation as well as wound healing, enabling rehabilitation to begin more quickly and safely. The device is simple to use. It may be placed directly over any wound dressing and non-metallic splints. A single manual treatment lasts only 15 minutes. Similar technology has been cleared by the FDA specifically for the treatment of post-operative pain and edema in humans.
Assisi products can be supplied to treat post-procedural sites with a pre-programmed treatment regimen, which improves compliance and thereby enhances outcomes.
Published studies have shown that tPEMF:
Accelerates surgical wound healing by up to 58%1
Accelerates tendon repair by up to 69%2
Accelerates the growth of new blood vessels that support tissue healing 3,4
