PEMF therapy has been shown to be effective in a wide range of conditions including pain relief, bone fractures and sprains, headaches, arthritis, diabetes, insomnia, depression, muscle injuries, burns, whiplash, endometriosis, and osteoporosis.

According to BCC Research, pain management medical devices in the U.S. generated $1.48 billion in sales in 2008. This number is projected to increase to $2.5 billion in 2013, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.4%.

"Pulsed Energy Technologies' proprietary device has a reputation for efficacy and is being used by some of the most internationally recognized sports figures.
