Research on the use of electronic fields for pain management focuses on the multiple mechanisms of pain production. These electromagnetic fields will increase the threshold of pain sensitivity and activates the anticoagulation system. Besides that, strong electromagnetic fields stimulates the production of opioid peptides, activates mast cells and increases the electric capacity of muscular fibers.
It‘s a common observation that the benefits last considerably longer than the time of use. Analgesic effects were still observed at the 7th and even up t14 days after the last treatment.
The COMPACT-II generates a magnetic field of 3 Tesla, which is about 600 times stronger than a normal magnet bar. This strong magnetic field stimulates nerve cells, muscles, and blood vessels consequently as this application of energy results in a physiological change and/or stimulation which is used achieve therapeutic effects. By providing both a static and mobile applicator, the possibility use one of the pre-programmed recommendations, or create and store own program the end-user is assured have maximum results with the COMPACT-II.
The voltage induced in the tissue acts on the cell membranes whose lipid membrane is an insulating dielectric and which form a capacitor with the highly conductive fluid spaces adjacent the membrane. Proteins which cross the entire cell membrane (tunnel proteins) are stored in this phospholipid bilayer, however sometimes only on the outside or inside. Glycolipids and cholesterol are other components of the cell membrane.
The membrane proteins have various tasks. The ion channels are for High Energy Inductive Therapy of greatest interest. While small molecules such as O2, CO2 and H2O can diffuse through the cell membrane along a concentration gradient and since lipophilic substances can across the cell membrane purely passively, the cell membrane is practically impermeable for most ions.
In the extracellular space, the most common ion is Na+, and the most common ion of the intracellular space is K+. Because of the high concentration gradient, a Na+ diffuses int the cell and a K+ diffuses out of the cell from time time. In this process, there is also displacement of electrical charges each time.
Since at rest in particular the K+ channels are open and the Na+ channels are closed, the inside of the cell becomes more negative as compared the outside with each K+ ion which diffuses out of the cell at rest. Because the electrical gradient which is changed in this way counteracts the concentration gradient, equilibrium is reached after a certain amount of time. Generally speaking, a membrane potential at rest goes from -80 t-90 mV in this way (resting membrane potential). The resting membrane potential is primarily a K+ potential, but naturally dependent on the other ions (if only K+ were affected, the resting membrane potential would be 97 mV).
Over time, the concentrations would balance out purely passively, a condition which leads to cell death.
The concentration gradient for Na+ and K+ must therefore be maintained by an active, ATP-consuming process that the cells can fulfil their tasks – in the nerve, for example, the electrical information transfer and processing. This is the task of the Na+ / K+ pump which consumes between 50% and 70% of the entire ATP requirement of the cells.
The Na+ / K+ pump can be influenced by various factors, such as toxins, drugs, or a lack of energy. The resting membrane potential becomes increasingly positive and the cell functions are thus disrupted.
With the change in voltage induced by the High Energy Induction Therapy, the regeneration of a normal resting membrane potential is facilitated. Normally, the passively passing molecules can once again enter and leave through the cell membrane. The energy production in the mitochondria can once again start up and the normal function of the Na+/ K+ pump is supported. As a result, the preconditions for normalization of the cell functions are restored.
