Pulsed Magnetic Field Anti-Inflammatory Device

Case ID:

Detailed Description

Wayne State University and University of Michigan researchers have developed methods and devices which employ the use of electrical and magnetic fields to mitigate cellular responses to inflammation. Via the application of certain electric or magnetic fields changes and conversions of cell types are achieved along with modification of the physiological function of these cells thereby yielding a therapeutic effect. This approach affects neutrophils macrophages lymphocytes platelets and retinal cells and thus has the potential to provide therapeutic benefit to many diseases and conditions including immunological and inflammatory diseases and nerve generation.
