What is an Assisi Loop ®
The Assisi Loop ® works by using a pulsed electromagnetic field (pEMF). This helps the body reduce pain and inflammation with the production of nitric oxide.
A specific wavelength, 1/1000 the current of a cell phone, is delivered to the specific tissue. This targeted pulsed electromagnetic field (tPEMF) accelerates healing and reduces inflammation.
It’s a safe, effective, and non-invasive way to help your dog without the addition of more medications. It uses the same technology that has been FDA-approved for human use.
Dog response in clinical trials¹ have shown that the Assisi Loop ® helps by:
- Accelerating wound healing in soft tissue and bone
- Pain reduction, which also means reduce opioid use
Conditions PEMF can treat
- Bone fractures
- Swelling (edema)
- Chronic wounds
The Loop ® comes in 2 sizes, 10cm or 20cm. And there are 2 versions available:
- Manual - turns off after each 15 minute treatment
- Auto-Cycle - stays on to deliver 15 minute sessions every 2 hours
Your vet can help you determine which size and version is right for your dog.
The Assisi Loop ® doesn’t last forever. It has at least 150 treatments, each lasting 15 minutes. The batteries cannot be replaced or recharged. The Loop ® will need to be replaced when battery life is extinguished. But the battery life can be optimized by waiting 2 hours between each treatment.
I’m excited to see how the Assisi Loop ® helps my dog. Although my dog has used the Loop ® a total of 6 times, he gets excited every time he sees the PEMF device. Based on my dog’s behavior, the Loop ® must be doing something good. I can’t wait to see if his neck is better after a few weeks of treatment.
