What time is it? Check the iWatch. Lost? Check in with your GPS. Need help remembering a grocery list? Call or text your family for a quick response. It seems that it is getting harder and harder to stay up-to-date on all the latest advances in technology. The times are a-changing and they are doing this at rapid speeds!
Some technology advances are fun, such as those geared toward video games. Some are helpful, like those that make it easy to keep in touch with loved ones around the world. And some are even beneficial to the overall health and welfare of humans in a much grander scale, as in those designed to help folks live longer.
Such is the field of magnetic therapy, which has actually been around since 2000 B.C. Way back then, guiding stones were placed on specific parts of the body to help correct imbalances. Although the practice fell out of favor in North America, we saw a revival beginning in the 1970’s.
Today, technological advances such as pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT) are helping people with diseases such as Parkinson’s live longer, more fulfilling lives. About 30,000 people worldwide are currently benefiting from bracelets that are influenced from early magnetic therapy. Electromagnetic waves in these bracelets increase blood flow and reduce inflammation, offering alternative options for people suffering from a variety of ailments.
The move into bracelets started with collaboration between InBalance Technologies and Active Edge CEO Kurt Walchle. Walchle helped create Survival Straps, which are credited with saving lives in a variety of emergency military and domestic situations. Pair these extraordinary bracelets with magnetic therapy and you have new technology that stems from age-old traditions.
To put it simply, this new technology is offering up improvements in a person’s physiology using methods that have been around for centuries.
