Usually these kind of probes contain a coil scattering the magnetic energy around because of the probe's construction. The field is distributed mainly around the probe and just a very small amount of the generated energy is actually available at the tip of the probe while penetration into the body is neglectible, especially when the energy generated by the device is already very low from the beginning.
In order to be effective the pulsing magnetic field needs to be directed from the tip of the probe into the body, requiring concentration of the magnetic field towards the tip.
has been designed for very local PEMF treatment like sinusitis, osteomyelitis of jaw bones, dental work, in short when you are not interested in treatment of the surrounding areas. In addition it is very effective for acupuncture applications and often makes treatment with needles superfluous.
The flat surface at the end of the probe has a diameter of 1” (25 mm) and can be placed directly on the area to be treated with the high pulsing magnetic intensity of up to 10 milli Tesla (100 Gauss).
The Curatron probe has been designed with a unique focused pulsing magnetic field, with the highest energy density concentrated immediately in front of the probe. The picture above shows the magnetic energy distribution where the strongest field is white/yellow decreasing towards blue further away from the probe.
