Introducing The Curatron FLASH

Introducing The Curatron FLASH

2017 is beginning with a bang or maybe a FLASH. Ben Philipson, the developer of the Curatron family of products has done it again. The new FLASH is what the industry calls a RINGER system. I don’t really know why but perhaps you do. The FLASH is new and it’s function is to provide very fast but perhaps short-term relief. The Curatron 2000 Family of true PEMF High Magnetic Flux Density machines take a little longer perhaps to effect pain relief but the effects are longer lasting and sometimes permanent.

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from a new customer asking about the FLASH. I am placing a copy of the text from that email below along with my reply.

I am interested in the Curatron FLASH but I need to find out some details.

  1. In my reading, I came across that it is a ringer and oscillating PEMF. does that mean it is like your other oscillating machines below 900 G then it’s different at 2000 G that’s when it’s a ringer? If you could help me make sense of this because I like the effects of both types of machines but don’t have the money to buy both?
  2. What types of applicators are available for the flash?
  3. With the software for the flash is it the same as the software for your pc model which has the 68+ programs?
  4. Can I buy the software later down the road? Is there a shipping cost?
  5. When I get the software how much freedom do I have with creating programs like freq, time, and power?

Please tell me all the freq, time, and power settings I would have to create a program.


My reply was as follows:

I had to check a few things and do some website updating before I could reply properly.

  • In my reading, I came across that it is a ringer and oscillating PEMF. does that mean it is like your other oscillating machines below 900 G then it’s different at 2000 G that’s when it’s a ringer? If you could help me make sense of this because I like the effects of both types of machines but don’t have the money to buy both?
    • The term ‘ringer’ was created a couple of years ago and, for the life of me, I can’t really define this type of PEMF system by using the word ‘ringer’ The new FLASH actually has a peak intensity of 4000 Gauss, quite a bit higher than our competition.
    • Please take a look at the table on this page: See https://www.curatron.com/curatron-family-of-products/curatron-flash-programming/
    • Perhaps the key difference between this and the Curatron 2000 PEMF family is that the FLASH will make the pain in a localized area go away quite quickly, perhaps within a treatment or two. Whereas; the Curatron 2000 will take longer but the effects will be longer lasting and perhaps permanent.
  • What types of applicators are available for the FLASH?
  • With the software for the flash is it the same as the software for your PC model which has the 68+ programs?
    • The software is different. It will have no pre-programmed protocols, those are built into the machine itself. You will be able to create your own protocols, store them as a treatment name or a patient’s name in the case of clinical use. One cannot directly program ‘intensity’ as that is a fallout of the setting of the frequency. As you go up in frequency, the intensity declines. This is a function of ALL ringer systems. I will write an analogy in the last answer below to help you understand the way a ‘ringer’ system operates.
  • Can I buy the software later down the road? Is there a shipping cost?
    • Yes, the software will be available for you to purchase and download later on. There will be a charge for the shipping of the cable which you will need to connect your MAC or PC to the FLASH control unit.
  • When I get the software how much freedom do I have with creating programs like freq, time, and power? Please tell me all the freq, time, and power settings I would have to create a program.
    • The software will permit you to create a stage time in one-minute increments and for that stage, you will select a frequency. Take a look at the images at the bottom of this page (https://www.curatron.com/curatron-family-of-products/curatron-flash-programming/)
    • The intensity is a fallout of the frequency setting. Look at the table near the top right of this page https://www.curatron.com/curatron-family-of-products/curatron-flash-programming/ and you will see that as frequency rises, the intensity per pulse drops off. Note, that at 0.67 Hz, the intensity is 4000 Gauss (400,000 micro Tesla) and at 33 Hz, the intensity falls to 200 Gauss (20,000 micro Tesla)
    • Imagine the capacitor (Energy Storage Device) is at full charge. When you dump energy at a slow rep rate then all the energy from the capacitor can be dumped into the load (in this case, the coil) and then it will have time to recharge before being switched again, assuming a low rep rate.
    • At higher frequencies, the capacitor begins dumping its stored energy and does not have time to recharge if it needs to send another pulse to the load (coil). With charging time available limited by frequency, power per pulse drops off. This is a function that is present in ALL PAPIMI and Ringer systems. Overcoming this would be extremely expensive and a true engineering challenge. This challenge is met in radar systems. These radar systems cost several million dollars. The technology used in these very expensive radar systems is unnecessary in ringer systems.

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.

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
Location
  • precise location (GPS and network-based)
Phone
  • read phone status and identity
Photos/Media/Files
  • modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
  • read the contents of your USB storage
Storage
  • modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
  • read the contents of your USB storage
Camera
  • take pictures and videos
Microphone
  • record audio
Wi-Fi connection information
  • view Wi-Fi connections
Device ID & call information
  • read phone status and identity
Other
  • 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.
