GDV & PEMF

Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) scanning uses a high intensity electrical field to stimulate the emission of photons and electrons from the skin of each finger resulting in visual imagery that effectively maps the body’s organs and systems, aligning them to Chinese Energy Meridians. The positive results of Pulsed Harmonix Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy visually displayed in the diagrams herein.

Explaining the A2000 PEMF Device

Mike Kolesar, MS, CTO & Director of R&D

After graduating from Cornell with a Master's in Nuclear Physics, Mike developed a successful career at Hewlett Packard, managing laboratories in several states. He then joined a number of startups, for whom he served as President, Consultant, and VP of R&D, before lending his expertise to Pulsed Harmonix. 


How the A2000 Works:

The A2000 pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) device produces a magnetic field in its applicator coils that varies over time, pulsing like a heartbeat to provide a therapeutic effect.

The Magnetic Field:

The A2000s applicator coil produces the magnetic current behind each pulse, a microprocessor times the current, and the user adjusts the intensity via the control panel.

Current & the Magnetic Field:

The magnetic field is proportional to the current in the applicator wire: a zero current results in zero fields, and a high current produces a high magnetic field; double the current, and you doubles the field.

Adjusting Intensity:

To adjust the intensity of each pulse, select the intensity "Increase" or "Decrease" buttons on the A2000 control panel. The energy needed to drive each pulse accumulates at a constant rate, and the energy of each pulse is proportional to the time between pulses, i.e., the longer the time between pulses, the stronger the pulse.

The Gentle "Clicking" Sound:

The peak current in each pulse causes the coil wires to slap together creating a light ticking sound. These pulses are brief, lasting 1 to 2 thousandth of a second, regardless of intensity. 

Binding the Coils

By design, only the applicator’s coil has a strong directed magnetic field; the twisted leads do not have a significant field since they are close together and the flow of current is opposite in each lead, canceling the magnetic field. The coil’s field strength is proportional to the number of wire turns forming the coil, e.g., double the turns and you double the field, all-else being equal.

Heat Production: 

During pulsing operation, the higher the pulse current, the higher the heat produced in the copper wire: double the current and four times as much heating energy goes into the applicator. The longer the pulsing, the warmer the applicator coil will get. It never gets hot but warms to the touch. This can be soothing heat for the application area, similar to a heating pad.

Optimal Intensity:

When using PEMF therapy for the first time, it is important to begin at a low level, as every person responds differently. Initial users are encouraged to use the default Level 3 Intensity for 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening for three days before increasing the strength and duration of sessions. Duration and intensity determine how much magnetic energy users absorb, e.g., double the length time or the intensity and you double the energy absorption. In fact, there is a 50 to 1 difference in the peak pulse energy between the Level 1 and the Level 15 intensity, e.g., the Intensity is approximately double for each two steps up in intensity.

Session Duration:

Most users easily tolerate up to an hour of treatment. High intensities have a pronounced impact on inflammation, and the histamine response to injury. Higher intensities also allow for shorter sessions.  For a given outcome, higher intensity often enables a shortening of the session time.

Dual Usage:

When two people are using the same device, higher intensities, e.g. three steps higher, will evenly distribute the shared energy.

Pulsed Harmonix Sales Manager, Chad S. Weller

Pulsed Harmonix is pleased to introduce its newest team member and Sales Manager, Chad Weller. A Professional Ultra-Marathoner, Chad embodies passion, perseverance, and a competitive drive like few others. Not only does Chad take part in rigorous athletic events, running up to 100 miles at a time, but he also has proven results, winning his age group in the Florida Everglades 50-Mile in 2014.

Growing up, Chad participated in a diverse array of sports, from soccer to baseball to basketball, yet never running. In fact, practicing wind sprints—a series of anaerobic dashes—for traditional team sports initially turned him off to running. Yet, two things changed for Chad later in life that led him back to running in a significant way.

First, as a Nutrition and Business Major at Ohio State University, Chad took an early morning running class, and given the size of the campus grounds, began running between classes as well, picking up extra miles as a matter of necessity. Second, following college, Chad moved to Milan, Italy, where he worked as a model. Exploring the historic city on foot, he returned to running, taking in scenic vistas as he did on the Ohio State campus.

Returning to the United States, Chad made Miami, FL his home, and ran his first race: a 5K. Rekindling his competitive spirit, he realized how good running made him feel, and soon after completed a series of 10k races. Chad then entered half-marathons, followed by a 20k in his native state of Ohio. The natural progression then led Chad to full marathons, until in 2010 he completed in his first 50k race in San Francisco, CA.

Running through California’s coastal redwood forest cast a spell on Chad, who describes the experience as spiritual, and ever since he has pursed wilderness-based ultra-marathons, seeking out destination-races around the world, far from the din of crowds. In fact, Chad has now now competed in over 200 races, not only in the US, but also in Thailand, France, Guatemala, Argentina, and Chile.

Chad’s energy and enthusiasm is visible everyone he meets, and Pulsed Harmonix is a natural fit for the athlete and world traveler. Like everyone at Pulsed Harmonix, Chad walks the talk, and uses the TruePulse A2000 to expedite the body’s natural healing processes, particularly after a long run. As Chad puts it, “The A2000 gives me energy, and aids in the healing process,” demonstrating the device firsthand to chiropractors and other medical practitioners across Colorado and beyond.
