Viofor JPS pulsed magnetic field – stimulation method is an unique, patented solution designed for therapy, rehabilitation and wellness with Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Fields (ELF-MF). The system has been designed by renowned scientist and world authorities in the field of physical medicine: Professors Feliks Jaroszyk and Janusz Paluszak from Poznan University of Medical Sciences and Professor Aleksander Sieron from Medical University in Silesia.

Applicators

General information about the magnetic field applicators

In the applicators of Viofor JPS System the source of the magnetic field is formed in an electrical conductor coils. Med & Life produces heterogeneous field flat applicators and homogeneous field ring applicators. Induction of magnetic field generated by the coils is dependent on the dimensions of the coil, the number of turns and the electrical current flowing through the coil.

Flat applicators produce heterogeneous magnetic field, which means that induction measured at different locations on the surface of the applicator and under the applicator may have different values. With the distance from the surface of the applicator induction decreases, which limits the effective range of the magnetic field.

Increasing the “saturation”magnetic field can be achieved by the simulataneous use of two flat applicators.

Homogeneous field applicators, such as ring applicators are made of coils properly completed and placed in space to each other. They produce homogeneous field in the large space inside the applicator. This means that the homogeneity of the field has the same value of the induction, the same direction and sense in a given instant of time. The location of the body in the uniformity is ensured by the desing of applicators. A characteristic feature of the applicator is the generation of magnetic field with its lines of force parallel to the axis of the applicator and the patient`s body (in the flat applicators lines pass perpendicularly trough the body).

Choice of applicators

The values of magnetic field induction is related to the distance from applicator surface. It could be said that the larger applicator, the deeper magnetic field insertion.

When you need deep insertion, you should

choose large area applicator
use two flat applicators connected by adaptor
or use a ring applicator

Applicator combining (usage of two applicators)

​The aim of the combination is to increase the efficiency of the therapy.

General principle for applicator combining

combining applicators applies to selected magnetic stimulation applicator
connection can be done only with the original adaptor changes the parameters of treatment
for the optimum effect of the combining the applicators should be positioned parallel to each other and the surfaces contact with the body should have different colours

Operations

Viofor JPS generates variable magnetic fields, which cause changes in the organism similar to those caused by physical activity (physical strain, physical activity); i.e. they support biological regeneration. Both mental and physical regeneration is tightly connected with physical exercise. Variable magnetic field plays a similar beneficial role.
Magnetostimulation stimulates in the organism electromotor forces of such properties, which enable homeostasis, and in case of its disturbance stimulate return to a normal state.

Biological effect of variable magnetic field generated by Viofor JPS is the result of:

electrodymanic effect on ion currents in the body
magnetomechanic effect of the magnetic field on particles with uncompensated magnetic spin
ionic cyclotron resonance of cations and anions in the body fluids

Body fluids i.e. blood, the lymph and intercellular fluid constitute so-called second mode conductors of the ionic character of electrical conductivity. The essence of the Viofor JPS system is the optimal choice of two different electrical (and thus magnetic) signals as well as their mutual combination, in order to achieve the aforementioned three fundamental mechanisms of variable magnetic field absorption by the living matter.

ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) electromagnetic radiation may affect an organism in various ways.
In magnetostimulation, due to extremely low value of magnetic induction, the most important are bio-electric, biochemical and bioenergetic effect

The bioelectric effect causes normalization in the potential of the cell membrane. In pathological cases, the potential drops due to penetration through the cell membrane to the cell interior of positive ions, e.g. Na+. In order to reverse the process, the cell needs energy, which can be obtained from ATP hydrolysis. .
The biochemical effect is based on an increased enzymatic activity as well as reduced processes related with ATP. .
The bioenergetic effect is a factor that stimulates the nutrition and growth of cells and regulates intercellular processes leading to regeneration of the organism..

Biological Effects

Main effects of biological magnetostimulation mechanisms:

Analgesic effect
Analgesic action takes place mainly due to an increase in the secretion of endogenous opiates from the ß-endorphin group, a substance responsible for the increase in pain threshold. The effect of analgesic action occurs not only during exposure to magnetic fields, but is also observed after exposure is discontinued. This determines the biological hysteresis of magnetic field effect. Precisely such a mechanism of analgesic action on the internal opioid system confirms an antagonist of opiates blocking this effect (Naloxone).

Regenerative effect
An intensification of the processes of oxygen utilization and tissue respiration as a result of intensified diffusion as well as oxygen capture by hemoglobin and cytochrome chiefly determines the basis of regenerative effects. The increased capture of oxygen is associated with a stimulation of the processes of tissue respiration, DNA synthesis and acceleration of the mitotic cycle. As a result, magnetic fields treat trophic lesions of the shank, accelerate the healing of ulcerous niches, improve the cellular metabolism of the central nervous system and accelerate regeneration of damaged peripheral nerves.

Vasodilatatory
Very weak currents generated due to interaction on piezoelectric substances e.g. collagen, stimulate the activity of osteoblasts. It is aided by intensification of vasodilatatory effects. It has also been observed that a magnetic field inhibits demineralization processes of the bones and, at the same time, increases their mineralization – which is evaluated by densitometry.

Anti-inflammatory
Anti-inflammatory action is connected with the stimulation of formation of c-AMP and E prostaglandin. Prostaglandin influences the accumulation of c-AMP, which decreases the secretion of inflammation mediators from neutrophiles, basophiles, mastocytes and lymphocytes.

Relaxing and antispastic effect on the nervous system
In case of the nervous system, magnetic fields also improve the interneuron conductivity and modulation of neuron activity as well as the pineal gland’s twenty-four hour rhythms of melatonin secretion, which is called” the scavenger of free radicals” responsible, among others, for the aging process. The pulsating magnetic fields generated by the Viofor JPS clearly modify the amplitude value of alpha and theta wave rhythms in proper directions, characteristic for the physiological state of relaxation – objectively measurable and indicated by value of the demobilization of the autonomous system. The results of psychophysical testing, as a part of psychotherapy of emotionally immature people point to Viofortherapy as a method of choice for these people. What is more, it is a non-invasive method applied equally in medicine as in psychology.

Viofor JPS system magnetostimulation has a documented analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antispastic, regenerative effect; it also improves blood circulation. Magnetostimulation is particularly recommended to treat pain of various origin, motor system diseases or neurological diseases. It is very effective in posttraumatic, post-burn and neurological rehabilitation.

In many cases it allows reducing the drug intake, painkillers in particular

Application Method

Treatment time: default settings 8, 10 or 12 minutes
Treatment can be provided to patients in any position (lying or sitting). It does not need any special preparations. The application is automatic and there is no need to involve third parties.

Application parameters
Each treatment session includes the following parameters: Program (P), application mode (M) and intensity / level (I).

There are three groups of indication: prophylaxis, medical treatment and rehabilitation..
Prophylactic treatments should be applied two times a day. They provide comfortable and relaxing sessions. Two applicators can be used for prophylactic treatment: large flat applicator – mat and cot

Treatment and rehabilitation
Application parameters can be set according to the disease, patient’s age and general condition as well as treatment length. A wide choice of accessories allows general and local application. Large applicators (mat and cot) are used for the whole body treatment. Local applicators are used for selected body part treatment. They provide non-invasive and pain free treatment that patients can apply on their own.

For children, parameters are set according to age groups.

Effects

 
Viofor JPS System (Greek viofor means “going towards life”) can be used with good results against many health problems addressed through analgesic or anti-inflammatory and regenerative effects (on the bones and joints as well as soft tissue, the nervous and circulatory systems):
●      It is an efficient analgesic (through the output increase of endogenous opioids from the ẞ-endorphine group, a substance responsible for increasing the pain threshold), allowing for complete avoidance or a major decrease in the use of painkillers.
●      It has an anti-inflammatory effect (stimulating the creation of c-AMP and prostaglandin E). Undiagnosed or untreated inflammation are seen as one of the most influential factors in chronic diseases. Prostaglandin influences the accumulation of c-AMP, which in turn decreases the secretion of inflammation mediators from neutrophiles, basophiles, mastocytes and lymphocytes.
●      Improves the circulation of blood and lymph as well as the tissue oxygenation (decreasing the surface tension of liquids through magnetohydrodynamic effects), preventing edemas and varicose veins; it is a great prophylactic against cardiovascular diseases.
●      It improves the metabolism, rejuvenates and revitalises.
●      It allows for a more rapid regeneration after physical exertion, for which it is widely used in sport treatments (alleviates “muscle fever”; has an analgesic and antiedemic effect). The basic regenerative effects come from the intensification of oxygen utilisation processes and tissue respiration through increased diffusion and oxygen capture by hemoglobin and cytochromes.
●      It limits the negative effects of stress, has a calming and antidepressant effect, improves focus and concentration, has a beneficial effect on the quality of sleep and makes falling asleep easier. Help relaxation (decreases heartbeat frequency, slows down and deepens breathing).
●      It is used in treating virility disorders.
●      The alternating magnetic fields (thanks to the piezoelectric qualities of bones) are used in medicine to decrease the amount of time needed for broken bones to heal.
●      It increases the amount of calcium in bones, preventing osteoporosis with great efficiency.
●      It stimulates the production of natural collagen, giving skin a delicate, healthy look and limiting cellulite.
●      It supports the endocrine system, alleviating symptoms of menopause and andropause.
●      It stimulates the immune system, decreasing the likelihood of infections and alleviating their effects, as well as preventing complications.
●      It allows to decrease the medicine intake (in consultation with the doctors, e.g. diabetics require less insulin after a while).

Contraindications to magnetostimulation
Contraindications concern the application of magnetostimulation as a method itself, and not the Viofor JPS Clinic/Delux apparatus. Emitted fields are a contraindication to application in an existing disease – whereas they are not a disease-developing factor. The diseases mentioned in contraindications have a source in other factors. At present, there is no information in literature describing the contraindications to magnetostimulation. However, when taking into consideration the comparatively short application time of magnetostimulation and similar physical character of magnetotherapy, the contraindications should be the same as in case of magnetotherapy:
– pregnancy
– neoplastic disease
– tuberculosis
– hyperthrosis
– bleedings from the alimentary tract
– severe infections of  viral, bacterial and mytonic origin
– electronic implants
– conditions after organ transplants
