FLEXPULSE is imported from Germany. We consulted with a manufacturer in Germany who wanted to develop a device that was portable, battery-operated, rechargeable, and had flexibility in the number of programs available. No other portable battery-operated pulsed electromagnetic (PEMF) tested allowed this level of flexibility. The different programs in it are based on specific frequencies. One, for example, is 10 Hertz – Hz (10 cycles per second). 10 Hz has been found in research with NASA to stimulate stem cell reproduction and tissue regeneration. Also, 10 Hz has been found in research in Germany to stabilize the natural circadian rhythms of the body.
TRAINING THE BRAIN WITH PEMFS
Program 3 is 10 Hz. Additional research in the neurosciences has shown that 10 Hz is a basic rhythm of the brain – Alpha – so when you do 10 Hz square wave stimulation of the of the brain you basically renormalize, recalibrate the brain to become more balanced. So, when people are either anxious or either potentially sad or depressed, 10 Hz tends to rebalance everything. It’s good to just “chill” out. Some people call this alpha training.
MUSCLES, BONES, TENDONS AND LIGAMENTS – the musculoskeletal system
Program 9 is the combination of 10 Hz and 100 Hz . One hundred Hz has been found to be a specific frequency for muscle. 10 Hz also affects muscle by improving circulation, increasing energy production and helping with regeneration. The 10 Hz and 100 Hz frequencies alternate every minute. As a result, this program is usually recommended for muscular skeletal type problems.
DIFFERENT PROGRAMS TO DO MORE WITH THE FLEXPULSE
Program 1 is 3 Hz. 3 Hz is the deep sleep program in the brain so when the brain is in deep sleep it tends to run at around 3 Hz. This frequency is very sedating and it helps with sleep. So, it can be used to help people to fall asleep and also to stay asleep and because it’s battery-operated, with thin flat flexible coils, you could put it under the pillow and use it all night long. Program 2 is 7.8 Hz. 7.8 Hz is the Schumann resonance and considered the theta brainwave frequency band. The theta brainwave frequency band is also a learning state and it tends to be very relaxing. It is also the brainwave frequency in light sleep. We spend about 86% of our sleep in theta. Schumann resonance is also considered to be a balancing program. Programs 4 and 5 (14 Hz and 23 Hz) are in the beta range. Beta is alert consciousness. That’s when we’re wide-awake. We’re alert, our brains are processing, learning, reading, thinking, talking to people, and so on. So, that’s our basic alertness program. Most of the time during the day we are running in beta. The beta programs can be used for people who are driving long distances to avoid road fatigue. For example, you want to stay alert if you’re doing a project in the middle of the day. You have a little bit of a midday slump. You can use a FlexPulse coil on programs 14 or 23 Hz to either the brain or to the back of the neck. While the effect is not a strong, treatment can be applied anywhere on the body to stimulate that frequency. Programs 6, 7 and 8 are considered gamma frequencies, 40, 50 and 60 Hz. Gamma frequencies are used for meditation, learning, and creativity (for example, for Eureka! Moments). Program 10 was developed because of a study done at Harvard where they found that 1,000 Hz can be very important and very useful for our mood, especially people who become acutely depressed with grief reactions and so on. The FlexPulse PEMF device also offers us the capacity to do long term treatments, throughout the night and for hours a day if needed. The maximum intensities are variable up to 200 Gauss and the times for treatment can be set from 10 minutes up to 60 minutes, or continuous, to be operated until the battery needs recharging. It uses a wireless plate for charging. Most programs can run 12 hours or more. So, this is a very flexible PEMFs system.
