For applications on very small areas, where deep penetration is advised, without applying the pulsing magnetic field to surrounding tissue, a small probe is required.
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.
The Curatron probe 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.
This construction allows for very effective and deep penetration into the body. When used for acupuncture high energy transfer via acupuncture points makes application very effective. Application of the Curatron probe often makes use of needles superfluous, which is very advantageous when treating children and adults who dislike skin penetration by needles. No sterilization is required.
