Electric Potential Therapy Equipment Medical- MOVAS for a Healthier Life
The History of Electrostatic Potential Therapy
The idea of easing pain with electricity was first discovered in 1752 by Benjamin Franklin of America, who proved that lightning is caused by electricity generated between the clouds and the ground. Owing to this discovery, it was later found that electricity is effective in the treatment of various kinds of ailments.
In 1776, Hiraga Gennai of Japan made an electric generator called the “Electriciteit” which was believed to be effective for relieving paint and was used widely with patients. The Electriciteit continued to enjoy popularity among doctors treating rheumatism and neuralgia until the 19th century.
In Europe, according to medical dictionaries of the 10th century, electrostatic potential therapy apparatuses of different types from those in Japan were clinically in use at the time.
The advances of research and development with regard to electrostatic potential therapy apparatuses in Japan led to clinical applications that were carried out for more than 50 years. Today, many types designed for household use are widely available in addition to those for professional use in medical institutions. Electrostatic Potential Therapy Enhances The Power of Natural Healing.
A human body consists of approximately 6 billion cells that carry out a wide range of functions. The general function of the body activates a feedback mechanism that helps to maintain an optimum environment for these cells to perform all their vital activities. In other words, when the external environment changes, the body functions to optimize its internal environment including the osmotic pressure of body fluids, the gaseous composition and electrolyte composition of the blood, pH and body temperature. For the purpose of maintaining this constancy of its internal environment, the cells and organs of our body are controlled by a feedback mechanism that is based upon cooperation among the nervous, endocrinal and immune systems.
This constancy that is maintained within the internal environment of our bodies is called “homeostasis” and, in effect, is maintained by the cooperation among our systems and the regulating mechanism of our individual organs.
We need to maintain homeotasis if we are to continue to live. We get sick when our homeostasis is significantly disturbed, but we also have an automatic mechanism that works to maintain homeostasis (the feedback mechanism). This is called the “homeostasis mechanism” or “natural healing power”. The body can recover from illnesses if the degree of the homeostasis disturbance is within the limits of our natural healing power. If it exceeds these limits, the result is death. Natural healing power, in other words, is the power to prevent illness or to help us recover from illness. Electrostatic potential therapy using an electrostatic potential therapy apparatus works to enhance the natural healing power that maintains homeostasis within our systems.
“All vital mechanisms, regardless of how varied they may be, have only one objective, that objective consists solely of the preservation of the conditions of life within the internal environment of our bodies.” (19th century French physiologist Claude Bernard)
Therapeutic device is a medical instrument that imparts an alternating current potential to an electrically insulated human body*, thereby surrounding the body with an electrical field that has a beneficial effect. The electrical field apparatus stimulates the skin’s sense receptors via nerves. This stimulation ultimately acts on the body’s regulatory mechanisms such as the autonomic nervous systems, or hypothalamus, in the brain. Just one of the benefits of these effects is that the body’s homeostatic functions are kept in healthy levels by restoring the amounts of electrolytes in the blood (specifically, sodium, potassium, and calcium ions) to their normal values. This enables the body to recover from various unpleasant symptoms.
* The virtual absence of an electric current means that the user experiences no shocks, tingling, or unpleasant sensation whatsoever.
Homeostasis and the Body’s Natural Powers of Healing
Treatment in present day Western medicines is usually given after diagnosis. Such diagnosis is based on tests designed to discover irregularities in various parts of the body. However, it is difficult for tests to detect “semi-healthy” conditions, such as headaches, stiff shoulders, insomnia, and chronic constipation, which are often seen in today’s stressful society. Such conditions often fail to be diagnosed as ill health.
Oriental medicines, on the other hand, is based on the concept of gozo roppu (five vital and six internal organs), whereby health is thought to depend on the normal functioning of all these organs to maintain an optimum balance (homeostasis). The collapse of this balance causes a variety of symptoms to develop, including aches and pains, stiffness, hot flushes, and chills. Oriental medicine views these symptoms as indicators of “semi-health”, and considers them to be warning signs of the onset of illness. In order to enhance the human body’s natural healing powers, diverse therapeutic methods have been practiced from ancient times, including kampo (oriental herbal medicine), acupuncture, kyu (moxibustion), and amma massage. Modern physical therapy is based on the successful blending of Western medicine with the concepts of Oriental medicine. A diverse range of medical instruments and equipment for use in physical therapy are available, many of which are also employed in hospitals and other facilities offering medical treatment.
1960- The Soviets and other Eastern bloc countries were well into their second decade of using pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) for many different conditions with a focus on sports injury, arthritis and heart disease. The Mysasnikov Institute near Moscow was rapidly emerging as one of the premier heart treatment centers in the world, and other Soviet institutions were studying different neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. France, West Germany, Scandinavia and the UK had many practitioners using PEMF technology, but the scientific communities in these countries were not yet involved.
1970- As the cold war began its early stages of thawing we competed against Soviet and Eastern bloc countries in the athletic arena. Late in the 70s American track coaches were very impressed by the speed with which Eastern bloc athletes returned to competition after injury, and the amazing endurance their athletes displayed in cross country and other endurance events.
The quick answer at the time was “steroids and anabolic steroids’ or “blood doping”. That was an oversimplification to explain an unproven, but highly effective use of PEMF technology to restore tissues following injury and to stimulate increased numbers of mitochondria (cell structures that produce energy) in tissues- which give tissues incredibly greater aerobic capacity or endurance.
By the late 70s PEMF had made its way to Canada where a few US veterinarians observed its ability to heal injured animals and some humans. These Midwestern vets brought the technology to heartland America where they treated large animals, their owners and local people with this technology. Rural MDs referred patients to these vets for treatment of musculoskeletal injury stating, “I don’t have anything even remotely as good as Doc has, so why shouldn’t I send people to him”. PEMF was introduced to America and was here to stay in spite of the efforts of vested interests determined to continue the United States as the only industrialized nation in the world that did not allow access to this excellent healing technology. While other nations encouraged their populace to use PEMF in lieu of surgery and drugs, no such thing happened in America. In the late 70s EM-PROBE researchers received an institutional review board approval from the University of Washington and became the first group in the US to legally treat soft tissue injury in humans. It revolutionized our sports medicine practice.
1980- FDA approved the first PEMF device for the very narrow application of healing fractures that had not healed for at least four months. Somehow, while this technology was approved for bone fractures that hadn’t healed in four months or more, it was never considered in healing fractures at their earliest onset. FDA has stayed with that position to this day in spite of overwhelming evidence that PEMF dramatically reduces inflammation and pain while stimulating growth and repair almost immediately.
In 1980 it was necessary to translate Russian, Hungarian, and East German reports as none existed in English The early bone stimulators were ungainly, expensive, and poorly accepted by clinicians and patients alike. In spite of growing evidence this technology is unusually free of side effects, FDA groups it with X-ray and other EM devices known to be potentially dangerous in spite of World Health Organization citing therapeutic PEMF as “unusually free of side effects in use throughout the world”
In 1984 US athletes set a world record in the 4 x 100 at the Los Angeles Olympic Games. One of America’s finest young athletes was in that group and his story in his own words can be viewed on this site (Calvin Smith). Athletes from around the world and at all levels of endeavor now had access to PEMF here in the United States. Without drugs or blood doping PEMF played a major role in NCAA championships, along with Olympic, and World track and field records throughout the 1980s. In the mid 1980s EM-PROBE investigators suspected PEMF was somehow affecting free radical neutralization by antioxidants, but getting funding for PEMF research wasn’t possible and the central issue of free radicals in injury stagnated.
1990- Canada legalized PEMF in the 1980s; therapists and trainers were putting their electrostim and ultrasound units in the closet and exclusively used PEMF technology to treat lay and athletic injuries alike. The alternative movement was bringing PEMF out of the closet in the United States as the Internet allowed countries everywhere in the world access to American consumers. The United States emerged as the leader in PEMF research world wide, but American citizens are still denied access. Using an industry backed classification practice that cost start-up firms $20-80 million dollars, even though WHO and thousands of scientific reports attest to the safety of PEMF, FDA allows manufacturers of old millisecond or sine wave devices of doubtful efficacy to control effective device approvals by stonewalling reclassification into a less expensive approval category.
Groups of investigators were tying PEMF to the more efficient neutralization of free radicals which were exploding on the health care scene as the primary cause of aging and promotion of injury and illness. Our group proposed that PEMF acted as a catalyst making the neutralization of free radicals by antioxidants up to a hundred times easier. The precious nature of starting treatment immediately, and particularly in the first twelve hours following the onset of an illness or injury, was also better defined. Other groups were demonstrating that PEMF had the ability to stimulate genes through electromagnetically responsive areas (EMRAs), noting a particularly strong influence on growth and restoration genes such as growth hormone. The Internet market blossomed with hundreds of PEMF devices, some good, most antiquated technology that caused confusion with their highly variable results. Static magnets vs. pulsed electromagnetic fields were regularly confused by consumers although they are a universe apart unless the pulsed device is sine wave.
2000- NASA astronauts develop significant problems with their immune systems if their time in space is prolonged and NASA wanted something safer and more convenient than pharmaceuticals to prevent this. In the most exhaustive study yet completed a NASA scientist named Thomas Goodwin and a collaborator at the University of Michigan named Robert Dennis defined the most effective pulse characteristics leading to the greatest efficacy and observed incredible up-regulation of genes associated with growth and restoration and the shutting down of genes that promote illness or expand injury. They also demonstrated that tissues exposed to a correct PEMF pulse saw a 300% increase in mitochondria- the cellular component responsible for aerobic capacity and endurance in addition to restoration of tissue to a state of wellness.
We’ve gone full circle as is so often the case in science. The stories of endurance among Soviet and East German athletes and the accelerated healing seen by American track coaches in the 70s was not imagination nor “anabolic steroids”, just a fundamental energy that all living systems have used for 200 million years. The Soviets observed that cells used PEMF as easily available energy to enhance endurance or to recover from illness or injury, an ability no drug ever made has been able to duplicate.
As you seek wellness, remember that inside every cell in your body is the same mitochondria included there 200 million years ago as larger cells incorporated them because they produced energy by using oxygen. They still use oxygen today, and still use PEMF (if properly structured) when they need an assist to get their metabolism back on track after injury or illness (see link to NASA study). Nanosecond PEMF technology is a new day for quality of life that is free of drugs and free of side effects. Your mitochondria will love you for it- and provide you with a healthier body to enjoy life again.
PEMF – How does it work?
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy
All living cells within the body possess potentials between the inner and outer membrane of the cell, which, under normal healthy circumstances, are fixed. Different cells, e.g. Muscle cells and Nerve cells, have different potentials of about -70 mV respectively. When cells are damaged, these potentials change such that the balance across the membrane changes, causing the attraction of positive sodium ions into the cell and negative trace elements and proteins out of the cell. The net result is that liquid is attracted into the interstitial area and swelling or oedema ensues. The application of pulsed magnetic fields has, through research findings, been shown to help the body to restore normal potentials at an accelerated rate, thus aiding the healing of most wounds and reducing swelling faster. The most effective frequencies found by researchers so far, are very low frequency pulses of a 50Hz base. These, if gradually increased to 25 pulses per second for time periods of 600 seconds (10 minutes), condition the damaged tissue to aid the natural healing process.
Pain reduction is another area in which pulsed electromagnetic therapy has been shown to be very effective. Pain signals are transmitted along nerve cells to pre-synaptic terminals. At these terminals, channels in the cell alter due to a movement of ions. The membrane potential changes, causing the release of a chemical transmitter from a synaptic vesicle contained within the membrane. The pain signal is chemically transferred across the synaptic gap to chemical receptors on the post-synaptic nerve cell. This all happens in about 1/2000th of a second, as the synaptic gap is only 20 to 50 nm wide. As the pain signal, in chemical form, approaches the post-synaptic cell, the membrane changes and the signal is transferred. If we look at the voltages across the synaptic membrane then, under no pain conditions, the level is about -70 mV. When the pain signal approaches, the membrane potential increases to approximately +30 mV, allowing a sodium flow. This in turn triggers the synaptic vesicle to release the chemical transmitter and so transfer the pain signal across the synaptic gap or cleft. After the transmission, the voltage reduces back to its normal quiescent level until the next pain signal arrives.
The application of pulsed magnetism to painful sites causes the membrane to be lowered to a hyper-polarization level of about -90 mV. When a pain signal is detected, the voltage must now be raised to a relatively higher level in order to fire the synaptic vesicles. Since the average change of potential required to reach the trigger voltage of nearly +30 mV is +100 mV, the required change is too great and only +10 mV is attained. This voltage is generally too low to cause the synaptic vesicle to release the chemical transmitter and hence the pain signal is blocked. The most effective frequencies that have been observed from research in order to cause the above changes to membrane potentials, are a base frequency of around 100Hz and pulse rate settings of between 5 and 25Hz.
What is Infrared?
Our eyes are detectors which are designed to detect visible light waves (or visible radiation). Visible light is one of the few types of radiation that can penetrate our atmosphere and be detected on the Earth’s surface. As we have seen from the section on the discovery of infrared, there are forms of light (or radiation) which we cannot see. Actually we can only see a very small part of the entire range of radiation called the electromagnetic spectrum.
The electromagnetic spectrum includes gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet, visible, infrared, microwaves, and radio waves. The only difference between these different types of radiation is their wavelength or frequency. Wavelength increases and frequency (as well as energy and temperature) decreases from gamma rays to radio waves. All of these forms of radiation travel at the speed of light (186,000 miles or 300,000,000 meters per second in a vacuum). In addition to visible light, radio, some infrared and a very small amount of ultraviolet radiation also reaches the Earth’s surface from space. Fortunately for us, our atmosphere blocks out the rest, much of which is very hazardous, if not deadly, for life on Earth.
Infrared radiation lies between the visible and microwave portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Infrared waves have wavelengths longer than visible and shorter than microwaves, and have frequencies which are lower than visible and higher than microwaves. Infrared is broken into three categories: near, mid and far-infrared. Near-infrared refers to the part of the infrared spectrum that is closest to visible light and far-infrared refers to the part that is closer to the microwave region. Mid-infrared is the region between these two.

The primary source of infrared radiation is heat or thermal radiation. This is the radiation produced by the motion of atoms and molecules in an object. The higher the temperature, the more the atoms and molecules move and the more infrared radiation they produce. Any object which has a temperature i.e. anything above absolute zero (-459.67 degrees Fahrenheit or -273.15 degrees Celsius or 0 degrees Kelvin), radiates in the infrared. Absolute zero is the temperature at which all atomic and molecular motion ceases. Even objects that we think of as being very cold, such as an ice cube, emit infrared. When an object is not quite hot enough to radiate visible light, it will emit most of its energy in the infrared. For example, hot charcoal may not give off light but it does emit infrared radiation which we feel as heat. The warmer the object, the more infrared radiation it emits. The infrared image of a landing space shuttle (left) shows the how the tiles underneath the shuttle have been heated during re-entry.

Humans, at normal body temperature, radiate most strongly in the infrared, at a wavelength of about 10 microns (A micron is the term commonly used in astronomy for a micrometer or one millionth of a meter). In the image to the left the red areas are the warmest, followed by yellow, green and blue (coolest). The image to the right shows a cat in the infrared. The yellow-white areas are the warmest and the purple areas are the coldest. This image gives us a different view of a familiar animal as well as information that we could not get from a visible light picture. Notice the cold nose and the heat from the cat’s eyes, mouth and ears. Some animals can “see” in the infrared. For example, snakes in the pit viper family (e.g. rattlesnakes) have sensory “pits,” which are used to detect infrared light. This allows the snake to find warm-blooded animals (even in dark burrows), by detecting the infrared heat that they radiate. Snakes with 2 sensory pits are thought to have some depth perception in the infrared. We experience infrared radiation every day. The heat that we feel from sunlight, a fire, a radiator or a warm sidewalk is infrared. Although our eyes cannot see it, the nerves in our skin can feel it as heat. The temperature-sensitive nerve endings in your skin can detect the difference between your inside body temperature and your outside skin temperature. We also commonly use infrared rays when we operate a television remote.
Near Mid & Far Infrared
Infrared is usually divided into 3 spectral regions: near, mid and far-infrared. The boundaries between the near, mid and far-infrared regions are not agreed upon and can vary. The main factor that determines which wavelengths are included in each of these three infrared regions is the type of detector technology used for gathering infrared light. Near-infrared observations have been made from ground based observatories since the 1960’s. They are done in much the same way as visible light observations for wavelengths less than 1 micron, but require special infrared detectors beyond 1 micron. Mid and far-infrared observations can only be made by observatories which can observe above the atmosphere. These observations require the use of special cooled detectors containing crystals like germanium whose electrical resistance is very sensitive to heat.
What the Researchers say about FIR
Far Infrared energy is not only safe, but highly beneficial for our bodies. Far Infrared lamps are actively used for medical treatments by doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, and massage therapists for arthritis, joints pain, stiff muscles, injuries to tendons and ligaments to promote a faster self body healing effect. Infrared heat is “radiant” heat. Radiant heat is simply a form of energy that heats objects directly through a process called conversion, without having to heat the air in between.
Radiant heat is also called Infrared Energy. The infrared segment of the electromagnetic spectrum cannot be seen, but can be perceived as heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Our atmosphere has a “window” in it that allows infrared engergy rays in the 7 ~ 14 micron range to safely reach the earth’s surface. When warmed, the earth radiates infrared rays in the 7 ~ 14 micron band with its peak output at 10 microns. According to Dr. Tsu-Tsair Oliver Chi, in his summation on the mechanism of actions of infrared devices tuned to the human body; tissues needing a boost in their output selectively absorb these rays. The internal production of the infrared energy that normally occurs within our tissues is associated with a variety of healing responses and may require a boost to a maximal level to insure the fullest healing response possible in a tissue, which is being repaired. After boosting a tissue’s level to its maximum, the remaining rays pass onward harmlessly. This phenomenon is called “resonant absorption.” Regular use of a sauna may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.

Able to monitor real time treatment status using LCD display screen at a glance.Personal electric potential therapy equipment applies specific electric potential to human body against the zero potential of earth surface using electric potential energy. In 18th century, Benjamin Franklin found that there is large electric activity between earth surface and cosmic space, and he first released the invention of electrostatic application to medical treatment. Later, James Wirmshurst improved this invention and actually used widely as medical treatment equipment which is named as Franklinsation following the inventor’s name, with many proofs of its effect. Its treatment procedure is to place patient on the insulated state, charge part of bioelectricity that is generated by induced electricity to patient’s body, and connect its bottom to the ground. ALLSBON’s history, expertise, safety, recognition will be the reference in selecting personal electric potential therapy equipment.
Electric field in the nature has very large scale
There is saying that “a lot of thunder brings fruitful year”, and there sometimes has 100 million volt of electric potential difference between thundercloud and earth surface. As known from the sources & what we all have studied, the whole earth is surrounded by electric field. There is gas ion layer, called ionosphere, above 100km space of the earth, and this forms vast electric field. This is the natural electric field. But nowadays, we do not benefit from this natural electric field due to concrete building environment. Therefore, this electric field treatment equipment is recognized as artificial electric field compensation for this natural electric field. Action potential is generated at nerve fiber by energizing skin’s sensory receptor organs due to the electric field formed by high voltage from electric potential therapy equipment to insulated human body.
In Korea, following effects/influences are recognized:
1. Total therapy treatment equipment by applying AC voltage to human body
2. Equipment used to improve blood circulation by applying AC or DC electric field to human body
WHO released following 2 effects for living body reaction by 60Hz electric field generated by electric potential therapy equipment such as ALLSBON’s:
1) Stimulus to body surface sensory receptor organ by electric field applied to body surface
2) Cell level action by induction current to body due to electric field applied to body surface.
ALLSBON’s electric potential therapy causes electric field medical equipment generated electric field to stimulate skin sensory receptor, and finally influences to body function regulation of automatic nerve system such as hypothalamic-pituitary. Body surface (skin) has a lot of sensory receptors that collect external physical information such as touch, pressure, vibration, temperature, pain, and deliver them to brain. For example, when generating high voltage electric field to cat’s rear leg, then it causes to move cat’s hair, and is stimulated by the sensory receptor organ, and delivered to the brain, and finally sense the electric field applied to rear leg.
Although it applies high voltage to human body, it almost does not carry any electric current that damages the body. Anyone regardless of age and sex can use this equipment safely because it improves blood circulation of the whole body.
