Science & History: Rabbit Osteotomy Study

PEMF-Rabbits

Rabbit Osteotomy Study

This is work conducted at Texas A&M on New Zealand White Rabbits using the SomaPulse® signal. A number of rabbits had incisions made in the forearm bone, the ulna, where section of the bone was removed leaving a significant gap. Under normal circumstances this gap will not heal in, because of the extent of the gap. In the control group without PEMF stimulation, what would normally happen was revealed, that is, there was no bone regeneration in the gap. In the treatment group, after 14 days of treatment there was clear evidence of bone growth in the gap. After 28 days, in the untreated group, there was still no bone growth in the gap. However, in the SomaPulse® treated group, there was a dramatic increase in bone growth, and tendons and ligaments. The study was not conducted until full healing occurred, but obviously there were significant differences between the untreated and the treated groups.

This technology clearly increases healing in muscle, tendon, ligament, skin, and bone tissues. The study was terminated because the researchers could clearly see the difference between the active PEMF system and the sham control devices.
