Magnetotherapy Qs Vet

Magnetotherapy Qs Vet: ideal to promote biological effects both in the field of bone consolidation defects and delays and in the field of neurological and orthopaedic disorders.

The functioning of ASA Magnetotherapy devices, based on the scientific principles of ELF (Extremely Low Frequency 1–100 Hz) pulsed magnetic fields, is characterized by low frequency and low intensity.

The mode of action by which the pulsed electromagnetic fields promote biological effects in the fields of bone union delays and defects, is mediated by intracellular Calcium (Ca2+) concentration, in relation to the plasmatic membrane potential and the corresponding ionic currents.

Electromagnetic fields effects

Electromagnetic fields can have a significant impact on matter, related to:

  1. MAGNETO-ELECTRIC effect, induces ion movement, creating ion currents.
    Specifically, the modulation of ionic currents through cell membranes is biologically important, promoting:
    • Variations in intracellular calcium concentrations
    • Changes in Na+ and K+ intracellular levels
    • Mitochondrial metabolism
  2. MAGNETO-MECHANIC effect, which is related to molecule orientation and translation. The application of mechanical stress induces magnetization changes. Biologically, it affects biological reactions where specific spatial orientations are needed.

Biological effects of magnetic fields

Extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields cause various biological effects by altering intracellular ion homeostasis (notably, that of calcium) that can affect many biological processes such as the release of neurotransmitters.

More specifically, electromagnetic fields have an anti-inflammatory effect on tissue repair, acting on the release of mediators that drive the transition from a chronic pro-inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory state of the healing process.

Extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields produce charge displacement, moving ions between cells, therefore inducing the piezoelectric effect, which is fundamental in bone regeneration processes. Based on this effect on bone, magnetotherapy can be applied for accelerating the healing of delayed union/non-union fractures and to relieve pain and limit bone loss in osteoporosis.

Extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields are able to stimulate microcurrents in cartilage and tendons, increasing collagen production and, as a consequence, cartilage and tendon healing rate. Effects on ionic microcurrents are also involved in the action of electromagnetic fields on wound healing.
