CLINICAL AND IMMUNOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF MAGNETOSTIMULATION IN CHILDREN WITH RECURRENT INFECTIONS OF RESPIRATORY TRACTS
“40 children with recurrent infections of respiratory tracts were treated routinely and 20 of them additionally received magnetostimulation (10 daily expositions to homogenous low frequency magnetic field generated by Viofor JPS). They were tested clinically and immunologically before treatment, after the magnetostimulation and 6 moths later. The number and duration of infection episodes decreased significantly after magnetostimulation…”
Low energy electromagnetic fields and immunity
“The available literature data on the influence of electromagnetic fields (EMF) on the immune system are up to now fragmentary, describing the changes of a few immune functions, mainly phagocytosis, lymphocyte proliferation, or antibody production, and are frequently controversial or not confirmed by the results of repeated periments. On the grounds of results of the three series of demonstrated experiments the authors indicate which methodological elements, including not only precise dosymetric circumstances but also the timing of exposure in relation to the cell cycle and the initial functional state of exposed cells may be decisive for the final effect of exposition in vitro…”
Immune monitoring in magnetostimulation in complex treatment of burn injury
The article presents the case of a female patient with an extensive 70% TBSA burn treated with a combination of routine operative surgery, general management and administration of expositions to low-frequency magnetic field (LFMF) generated by Viofor JPS Classic and Professional System emitters.
Immunocorrective effects of magnetotherapy administered in patients with thermal burn injury
The severe thermal injuries compromising more than 20% of body surface lead to the generalized reaction of the organism described as a “systemic inflammatory reaction syndrome” (SIRS). This kind of injury represents a strong signal for the immune system. The way of immune response depends on the range and intensity of the injuring signal and the potential reactive abilities of the system.

Analgesic efficacy of magnetoledotherapy in patients with low back pain syndromes
Low back pain syndromes most often occur due to overloading of the musculoskeletal system. The cause is a frequent, improper lifting of heavy objects, most commonly by those working physically, with repetitive movements of bending and straightening of the trunk (turning and bending with load). This problem affects not only adults but also children and adolescents. There is a growing interest in new forms of analgesic therapy nowadays, especially in those that exhibit synergistic therapeutic effects.
The aim of this work is to evaluate the analgesic efficacy of magnetoledotherapy in patients with lumbar– sacrum spinal pain syndromes caused by joints degenerative changes

Physical possibilities in the treatment of chronic abdominal pain in patients with peritoneal adhesions
Background. The most intensive pains suffered by patients after surgical interventions are caused by post-operative peritoneal adhesions, which are incorrect connective tissue connections formed on or among internal organs and tissues in the abdominal cavity. These adhesion-related pains are resistant to analgesic treatment and often persist for many years.
Objectives. In this trial, the estimation of the efficacy of combined treatment with the use of two variable magnetic field related therapeutic methods (magnetotherapy and magnetostimulation) in the treatment of 119 patients with chronic abdominal pains caused by numerous post-operative peritoneal adhesions was performed
Variable magnetic fields in the conservative analgesic treatment of peritoneal adhesions
In the study the therapeutic effects of variable magnetic fields applied as magnetotherapy and magnetostimulation were estimated in 20 patients with chronic abdominal pains resistant for routine pharmacological treatment caused by a creation of peritoneal adhesions after surgical interventions. As a result of 2 cycles of 15 daily procedures of both magnetostimulation and magnetotherapy, a significant decrease in pain intensity (from 9,05 to 2,05 points in VAS scale) and improvement of quality of life (increase from 23,25 to 87,75 points in EuroQol scale) were achieved.
Low frequency electromagnetic field decreases ischemia– reperfusion injury of human cardiomyocytes and supports their metabolic function
Electromagnetic field at extremely low frequencies plays a significant role in the physiological function of human tissues and systems. It is shown that electromagnetic field inhibits production of reactive oxygen species which are involved in heart injury triggered by oxidative stress. We hypothesize that low frequency electromagnetic field protects function of cardiac cells from ischemia–reperfusion injury.

THE IMPACT OF A LOW INDUCTION MAGNETIC FIELD ON BRAIN WAVE RHYTHMS IN YOUNG WOMEN AND MEN WITH AND WITHOUT DISTURBANCES OF LOGICALMATHEMATICAL THINKING
We studied the impact of a low induction magnetic field on alpha, beta, theta, SMR and delta brain wave rhythms.
The research involved 70 women and 70 men aged 19-23 with and without manifest difficulties in solving logical-mathematical
problems, divided into four groups of 35. The examinations were performed at the Psychophysiology Laboratory in Warsaw.
Statistical analysis shows that, regardless of cerebral hemisphere, IQ and sex, low induction magnetic fields can be used
to modify the amplitude values of particular brain wave rhythms in chosen directions, which means they can be used to in crease
the capacity of one or both cerebral hemispheres. These effects were not obtained with a placebo, which excludes a psychological factor being responsible for increasing the ability to make analytic-synthetic distinctions.
