Patented PEMF technology:
The OrthoCor Active System™ uses specialized Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) technology to relieve pain and reduce edema through safe, clinically proven therapy. PEMF is a low-level, time-varying electromagnetic field that penetrates superficial soft tissue, helping to accelerate the body’s natural anti-inflammatory and recovery responses.
Inside every Active System is the OrthoCor, a powerful microchip that delivers PEMF directly to the source of injuries. PEMF has been shown to stimulate reaction pathways that result in pain and inflammation reduction.
PEMF creates an optimized environment for healing:
OrthoCor’s patented PEMF accelerates the binding of calcium (Ca2+) to calmodulin (CaM), the process responsible for the body’s natural, anti-inflammatory nitric oxide (NO) cascade. NO is a key element in the body’s natural healing process. It is also a powerful vasodilator, increasing blood and lymphatic flow.
Additionally, NO down-regulates interleukin-1 beta (IL1β) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), which leads to reduced cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and prostaglandins – molecules responsible for causing inflammation and pain. Unlike other systemic COX-2 inhibitors such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), OrthoCor’s targeted PEMF signals stimulate localized reaction pathways, thereby reducing pain and inflammation without the risks and side effects associated with NSAIDs.
