HoMedics iHeal with PEMF Technology

As someone who suffers from chronic pain, I am always on the lookout for new and innovative methods of pain management. There was a time when I used to simply pop a painkiller to manage my pain but over the past few years I have drastically reduced my dependence on pain killers mainly because of certain gut conditions. I still do take anti-inflammatory painkillers when the inflammation and pain is bad. But when the symptoms are not too bad, I prefer to manage the pain with non-medication approaches. One such approach that I have taken help of recently is the HoMedics iHeal.

HoMedics iHeal with PEMF technology

The iHeal uses pulsed electro-magnetic field (PEMF) waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Clinically proven, this technology increases cell activity, repair and faster recovery from most soft tissue injuries. According to the makers, the iHeal can be used for targeted treatment of:
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis/golfer’s elbow
  • Painful/arthritic joints
  • Sports strains
  • Aching muscles

My experience: The iHeal is a very tiny device - just 38mm. It can be attached either with hypo-allergenic sticky patches or using the strap sleeve - both of which are provided in the box. The unit is charged by lithium batteries which are also included and a small mini screwdriver is provided(for use when you want to replace the batteries).

When the iHeal is switched on, the indicator light gives a short flash at a constant rate. This indicates the frequency of the electromagnetic pulse. While there is no set length of time for treatment, the makers recommend a minimum of 4 hours. My rheumatic condition has affected my fingers, the palm area and spreading onto the wrists. These are the areas where I have constant pain and stiffness. So, I used the iHeal to target these 3 areas. Because I did not find it inconvenient to use(no tingling, no noise), I let the unit stay for around 6-8 hours a day on my hand. Using the iHeal did seem to have helped a bit. But it's always a little difficult to be sure as my rheumatic pain tends to flare up and recede on its own. But whether this was a placebo effect or the PEMF waves at work, I still had a positive outcome. And any relief from pain, however little it may be, is always welcome.

Also, because of its tiny size, the iHeal can be worn under clothes and I find this aspect ideal when I am travelling or out and about.

The iHeal should not be used if you are pregnant, have a pacemaker or other heart problems. As with all such types of treatments, please consult your GP before using the iHeal. The instruction manual that comes with iHeal lists out all the precautions and safeguards. If you would like more information on the HoMedics iHeal(£49.99) you can visit HoMedics UK.
