Technical Excellence and Reliability

Technical Excellence and Reliability

As a person involved with the electronics and medical business for over forty years. I have never, yes NEVER, come across a product with the reliability and performance of the Curatron. For over fifteen years, Amjo has represented Curatronic Systems. In that period of time I have seen fewer than perhaps five equipment failures. That level of reliability simply does not exist in other electronic devices and each of these problems was dealt with immediately and I don’t believe that any of our customers was without their Curatron for more than a week.

If one adds to this remarkable reliability record, I can add that fewer than five systems have been returned to Amjo because of a customer’s satisfaction. The Curatron always meets or exceeds our customer’s expectations.

If you need help, then we are always here.

I decided to write this post as I became a little angry with one of our competitors whose news release implied that they now have computer control and as I looked into it, I found their iPhone and Android Apps are just vehicles to spread the word about their hardware.

The only system offering Computer Controlled PEMF Systems for clinical use is the Curatron 2000 PC and Curatron 2000 3D

One of our competitors today, released a smartphone app for Android and iPhone. I thought I’d download it to check it out but I became a little fearful. The install screen warned me that this App simply was too risky to install. The list of things it had access to were well outside the range of what it should have access to? Why would the app need access to my camera? Why would it need access to my photos and media files? Why would it need access to my microphone? Why would it need my device id and phone number?

The actual list on the install screen is:

This app has access to:

  • Device & app history
    Allows the app to view one or more of: information about activity on the device, which apps are running, browsing history and bookmarks
  • Location
    Uses the device’s location
  • Photos/Media/Files
    Uses one or more of: files on the device such as images, videos, or audio, the device’s external storage
  • Camera
    Uses the device’s camera(s)
  • Microphone
    Uses the device’s microphone(s)
  • Wi-Fi connection information
    Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and names of connected Wi-Fi devices
  • Device ID & call information
    Allows the app to determine the phone number and device IDs, whether a call is active, and the remote number connected by a call
  • Other
    receive data from Internet

I opted not to install it and I’d prefer not to identify the competitor.
The install info on my Android reads:

Discover the Secret that Keeps Top Athletes in the Game a and now YOU!

Performing at your peak demands that you push your body to the limit. With every single workout, practice, and game, you propel yourself towards the brink of what your body can accomplish. And any athlete who wants to increase that limit while never letting injury or wear and tear to let them down needs a XXX XXX Therapy Product.

This unique therapeutic system delivers a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) right into your body’s cells. The chemical reactions in every cell in your body are stimulated by electrical signals, which give the energy they need to work more efficiently. The result is that your body performs better and you have more energy, endurance, and stamina on the field.

The top athletes and sports scientists in the country use PEMF to:
– Manage Pain
– Recover Faster
– Perform Better

ADDED July 18, 2016

I am an Android user. Over the past weekend I received some criticism from an iPhone user who said that my rant about permissions was not accurate. Below, I have included the details that Google Play displays when installing this app.
Version 1.0 can access:
Device & app history
  • read sensitive log data
  • retrieve running apps
  • precise location (GPS and network-based)
  • read phone status and identity
  • modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
  • read the contents of your USB storage
  • modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
  • read the contents of your USB storage
  • take pictures and videos
  • record audio
Wi-Fi connection information
  • view Wi-Fi connections
Device ID & call information
  • read phone status and identity
  • receive data from Internet
  • read Google service configuration
  • prevent device from sleeping
  • full network access
  • view network connections
  • send sticky broadcast
  • pair with Bluetooth devices
  • access Bluetooth settings
  • control vibration
  • draw over other apps

These sorts of warnings scare me off. I did not do the install 

Not being an iPhone user, I did try twice and came back to the Android world, where I’ll stay.

There are a couple of options that came to mind:

  • iPhone software does not advise the user what risks he or she is taking.
  • The Apple folks required the developer to clean up his act.
  • The iPhone software allows items like the above and does not give the user the chance.


Plantar Fasciitis is just plain painful (Healing the Heel)

Plantar Fasciitis is just plain painful (Healing the Heel)

This tale is a little old in that I contracted Plantar Fasciitis one day and learned how important my feet are when I’m trying to walk. Up and down stairs was no problem because I could sit on my butt and transfer myself to the next step one at a time. It was a little slow and bumpy but it works. On the other hand, or perhaps the other foot, walking was virtually impossible.

I did manage to get to a chiropodist, foot doctor or podiatrist, whatever the proper name should be. I received a cortisone injection and a suggestion that I roll my foot on a frozen drink bottle. The frozen drink thing actually helped but its effects were short lived.

I am a bit scatterbrained once in a while, because finally, I remembered that I sold Curatron PEMF systems at www.curatron.com 

I did happen to own a Curatron 2000 XP and High Energy Coil “A” This combination would provide a 450 Gauss level of magnetic flux density. The results were amazing, within two to three days, I was walking well and within two weeks my foot was essentially normal again. This experience was over ten years ago and I have never had a recurrence. I doubt if everyone would have the same experience. We have sold systems to folks with Plantar Fasciitis over the years and they all had a similar experience to the one I had.


Spark Systems versus PEMF Systems

Spark Systems versus PEMF Systems

We consider the Curatron to be a full PEMF system in that it genuinely generates magnetic pulses rather than RF pulses, The PMT120 and others generate probably what can be called an RF pulse similar to those generated by Marconi, Tesla and others demonstrating early forms of radio communication. Marconi used a spark gap that would fire when the voltage across it was high enough to discharge across a preset air gap in the way that lightning occurs when a cloud’s voltage is so high that it has to discharge by creating a spark between the cloud and the ground.

Recall the famous drinking bird who recharges with water to cool himself down

Recall the famous drinking bird who recharges with water to cool himself down

Think of a spark gap and a capacitor in the same way that you would think of water flowing into a tipping bucket that tips and empties itself when the water level reaches a point when gravity takes over causing the bucket to tip. In the case of Marconi and others, they used a tuned circuit so the energy dispensed when their spark gap fired would generate a single frequency and its harmonics into an antenna. The spark systems are similar but there is no tuned circuit and the antenna is the coil or length of wire attached.

A true PEMF system creates a magnetic field caused by a high current in a coil like an electromagnet. PEMF systems are highly controllable. Spark systems generate a series of pulses. The pulse magnitude is dependent on the size of the capacitor (bucket) and the pulse frequency (time between pulses) is dependent on the firing point of the spark gap, basically a semi-controllable bolt of lighting. Maximum voltages in the Curatron system are very low, perhaps 100 Volts or so in comparison to tens of thousands of volts in a spark system where the voltages can reach 30 to 40 kV It’s the high current passing through coil(s) that generate magnetic energy.

It’s a shame that the spark systems use the PEMF name. They really should be called something else to differentiate them from PEMF machines. I remember when MRI machine technology was called NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance). the word nuclear, scared everyone and the name became MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) was born. Of course the word nuclear was used as it is the nucleus of the atoms in our bodies that was referenced, not nuclear energy.

Case Study: Curatron improves bone density!

Daily treatment with the Curatron device makes bones stronger and decreases fracture risk!

In January 2008, J.N., a trim, active older female, came into the Viera Diagnostic Center and was diagnosed with a modern Lunar bone densitometer.  According to the classification of the World Health Organization, a T-score lower than -2.5 shows that a person suffers from osteoporosis.  (more…)

Pooping Dogs and Magnetic Fields Align!

Pooping Dogs and Magnetic Fields Align!

Dogs-PoopIt’s peculiar that perfectly picky pooches prefer pooping in unexpected ways.

Dogs preferred to excrete with the body being aligned along the North–South axis under calm MF conditions. This directional behavior was abolished under unstable MF. The best predictor of the behavioral switch was the rate of change in declination, i.e., polar orientation of the MF.

This is found in a paper published in 2013 the magazine “Frontiers in Zoology”
