Has anybody come across the company ASA Laser who are offering trials with magnetotherapy units?

They claim that this treatment is ideal for disorders of the musculoskeletal system as it penetrates deeply inducing analgesic, anti-inflammatory and repairing effects?

There is no clinical evidence to support electromagnetic therapy use. It has been around 20 years plus. possibly a strong placebo effect , but no validated evidence based literature to support its use, I trialled one once on selective patients but found no credible support for its use.

Claire. As Cliff and Luis have mentioned, there are a LOT of manufacturers out there who make these kind of claims - often without a lot (understatement) to back them up. I am aware of a fair number of devices, but not this particular one - and can't see anything published in my database - though of course it might be out there and I have missed it - but I have over 6000 other papers on Magnetic based therapy. Sorry no immediate assistance

Hi Claire ASAlaser is a well known and reputed laser company. However I do not know nothing about its magnetotherapy units. It is the struggle for surviving? Regards Luís

New one on me Claire but every day a manufacturer seems to bring out the latest magic wand with all sorts of claims regarding the evidence to support it Let us see whether one of the other panel members have come across anything Best wishes Cliff
