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 are powerful microchips that deliver PEMF therapy directly to the target area.
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.
