Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®) with MAGNETOLITH® is a non-invasive treatment solution that opens up new possibilities in regeneration and rehabilitation. The
areas of application include chronic diseases of the musculoskeletal system such as lower back pain, tendinopathies of the rotator cuff or Achilles tendon. Due to its properties, EMTT® is also
ideally suited as a supplement to extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), as is shown in current study data.
In the course of EMTT®, painful areas of the body are treated with high-energy magnetic pulses, the field strength of which lies within the therapeutically effective range – of 10 mT (millitesla) and upward. The generated energy is transferred via an applicator to the body areas to be treated. With this pulse intensity it is possible to achieve a therapeutic effect in the cell. The individual pulses penetrate the tissue so that even deeper tissue layers can be reached. There is no temperature increase in the tissue, due to the short duration of the individual pulses.
Effect on the cell
EMTT® treatment can cause a positive cell modulation. Every cell undergoes chemical reactions that serve to generate energy. The prerequisite for this is membrane permeability. A stable cell membrane ensures permeability for vital substances. A pathological change leads to dysfunction – a metabolic disorder that can ultimately lead to disease. The chemical reactions of the cell potential can be positively influenced by EMTT®. The sodium-potassium pump can be reactivated and physiological cell processes can be normalized.
EMTT® in everyday practice
The treatment requires little effort, is non-invasive and practically free from side effects. The treatment is comfortable and uncomplicated for patients. One session lasts between 5 and
20 minutes; depending on the indication, 6 to 8 sessions are required. The applicator is positioned on the region of the body to be treated without the need to remove clothing. The user
can also employ the practical holding arm for fatigue-free treatment. The pulse intensity is adjusted depending on the clinical picture. After the first treatment by the doctor, further treatments can be carried out by qualified personnel.
EMTT® from STORZ MEDICAL expands the treatment portfolio of orthopaedic practices. Due to its properties, it is particularly suitable as a supplement to extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT).
