To Whom It May Concern:

I have been aware of the therapeutic value of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) for musculoskeletal injuries for some time, but recently I had the opportunity to utilize this product for another type of injury: A well-bred long yearling colt was cast under a pipe fence and got both knees badly scraped as he struggled to get up. Healing was slow, and at some point his right knee got infected. For many months the knee remained swollen, with intermittant pus drainage. At some point it was suggested that HealFast Therapy may be of benefit, based on the efficacy of PEMF in treating ulcers, wounds and bed sores. As there are no adverse side-effects to prolonged use of this low power PEMF unit, a 12 cm loop unit was properly applied over light bandaging of the right knee and was then covered with protective bandaging. After one week of continuous use, the knee was unwrapped. The unit's tiny red light was still on. Two new holes of pus drainage were present and the swelling the knee was significantly reduced. Color of superficial tissue appeared less dark than prior to use of HealFast.

The wound was cleaned and same treatment was applied repeatedly for two weeks. Late into his second year this valuable colt was started under saddle. I would strongly recommend considering HealFast Therapy for treatment of various equine injuries as per manufacturer's recommendation. This is a versatile, simple to use and very cost-effective PEMF unit.

Results with an Arthritic Cat

Maddy is doing fantastically. In terms of quick feedback I will tell you the coat (she is a big cat - part maine coon) fits her very well. I went out to acupuncture her June 24th I believe and after the session the owner and I went over the technology and the coat and she left it on for approximately 6 hours that evening. She continued to use the coat for 6 hours every day for the following week. 

Since that time I have seen Maddy 2x now. She had been getting acupuncture for 3 sessions before the coat was used; her overall disposition was much improved just from acupuncture... but her arthritis was very very severe (the owner had her on Metacam every 3 days - Maddy was still considerably lame in the shoulders and hips). The owner reports that after using the coat Maddy is much more playful and "seeks out" the owners to start play with her - before that Maddy would play if the owners approached her, but never initiated it herself. The owners let her go outside on supervised short visits and report that Maddy seems more interested in going outside to investigate and play since using the coat. They feel like her overall attitude is much improved - she seems "happier" and "more playful". In terms of fit the coat works very well - she is a large cat and somewhat chunky, but the adjustable straps worked very well and the owner reported that she seemed hesitant to walk around with it on the first day, but after that seemed used to it and proceeded to be able to use the litter box, go up and down stairs, etc, without any problems. they are very impressed. 

In terms of her lameness she is somewhat difficult to score but overall her shoulder arthritis seems markedly improved (easiest for me to gauge on palpation of her - she seems much less hesitant for me to do range of motion, and appears less lame/more sound in the front where she was severely arthritis). in the hips it's a bit difficult to assess because she is not so keen on me palpating her :) overall her level of comfort when i palpate in and around her hips for acupuncture is much, much improved. 

Please let me know what other feedback will be beneficial. I am super impressed and have seen no adverse effects at all - only positive benefits. I am going to start looking at your dog products also - I am starting to see a lot of ex-racing greyhounds with bad hips! 

Thanks so much, and again let me know what other feedback will be beneficial. Feel free to give my name and number/email if you need another veterinarian testimonial.

E Q U A L I GN

HealFast PEMF patches have been a substantial adjunctive therapy in our equestrian practice. To be able to leave continuous treatment with clients after their adjustments has improved healing time and increased functionality dramatically. As chiropractors working with and for veterinarians on internationally competitive athletes, both human and equine (primarily jumpers), saving down time and shaving thousands of seconds off in performance is crucial. The HEALFAST PEMF patch has provided a combination of pain relief and facilitated healing that has become an intrinsic part of our DC/DVM protocol.

Dear Ms. Whelan:

    We use the HealFast patches in many different clinical circumstances.  However, we use it most often for acute intervertebral disc disease patients.  We use the patches in our ICU for immediate care and send home the remainder of the patch for home use.  We are very impressed with the apparent pain relief and the rapidity with which our patients recover from their injuries.  We also use the patches on different chronic arthritic patients and the clients are very pleased with the results.  We use this tool in conjunction with standard medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic and laser care.  We feel that the PEMF patches are a very valuable addition to our treatment protocols.

Sincerely,

Karin-Susan Breitlauch, DVM
