Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Technology


What is EMTT?

Extracorporal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®) is a non-invasive, evidence-based procedure developed specifically for the treatment of degenerative joint disorders, acute and chronic pain, and sports injuries.

EMTT® opens up new possibilities in regeneration and rehabilitation. EMTT® uses high-energy magnetic pulses transmitted to the affected areas of the body. Due to the high oscillation frequency, EMTT® enables a high penetration depth and covers a large range of indications.

What disorders can be treated?

Health care professionals are using EMTT® to successfully treat musculoskeletal issues to include:

  • Degenerative joint disorders
    Wear and tear conditions such as osteoarthritis (knees, hips, hands, shoulders, elbows), herniated discs, spondylarthrosis
  • Pain treatment
    (Chronic) pain, for example ankle pain, sports injuries and achilles tendinitis
  • Sports injuries
    (Chronic) inflammation of tendons and joints, tendon overuse syndromes


What are the expected results?

Extracorporal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®) uses high-energy magnetic pulses transmitted to the affected areas of the body. Many patients report a significant improvement in their symptoms--sometimes even freedom from pain--after just a few sessions.

Is it safe?

Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering, and optimal quality have been built into each EMTT® device; and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy.

If performed by a qualified caregiver, Extracorporal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®) has virtually no risks or side effects.

What is the duration of the treatmentand how many treatments will I need?

Treatment sessions take approximately 15-20 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, a total of 8 treatment sessions, twice a week are necessary.

What will happen after the treatment procedure?

You will receive post-treatment instructions from your physician to follow during your recovery.

What are the possible side effects/complications?

The non-invasive EMTT® treatment is largely risk-free if performed by a qualified medical professional who will be able to advise whether this treatment is right for you. Possible side-effects may include discomfort during treatment or reddening.


What if I have a special health condition?

Patients with the following should not receive EMTT® Treatment:

  • Pacemakers and other sensitive electronic implants
  • Implants, if not safe for MRI
  • Pregnancy

How is the treatment performed?

EMTT® is a very comfortable outpatient procedure that can be performed right in your medical professional’s office. The handpiece is positioned over the area of pain while you remain fully clothed – direct skin contact is not necessary.

Why consider non-invasive EMTT®?

EMTT® is an extremely effective approach to treating pain that comes without risks, complications and lengthy recovery time. EMTT® is performed in your physician’s office/clinic, does not require anesthesia, requires a minimal amount of time, and allows you the ability to immediately bear weight (i.e. walk), and return to normal activity within a few days of the procedure.


Benefits of EMTT®

  • Evidence-based
  • Non-invasive
  • Wide range of applications
  • Outpatient procedure
  • No need to remove clothing
  • No side effects
  • Easy to use
  • High level of patient comfort
  • Excellent complement to EPAT®/ESWT®

Elective Payment and Insurance

Insurance typically does not cover the EMTT® procedure, however, the Elective Payment option allows you to have all the benefi ts of an EMTT® procedure at a very affordable price. Often there can be signifi cant savings to you through the Elective Payment option as compared to paying deductibles, multiple co-pays, and other non-insurance covered surgery, post operative surgical care and rehabilitation. This non-invasive option will be particularly appealing to those patients who are eager to return to work or normal activities in only a few days with just as good, if not better, clinical results compared to traditional treatment methods, including surgery.

How much does it cost?

For most patients, the Elective Payment out-of-pocket costs are much less than you would expect. Your physician can provide a personalized pricing program. Some patients can use their employer’s “Flexible Payment Medical Savings Account” to cover these out-of-pocket expenses with pre-tax dollars.

How can I get more information?

Your medical professional is the best person to talk with if you have questions or concerns about the EMTT® procedure. He or she has extensive knowlege and specialized training on all aspects of its use, safety and effectiveness.
