What’s TRM Medical?
After several years of research in prestigious institute and universities, the German company has developed with success therapeutic systems for the therapy application at nuclear magnetic resonance and 17 years ago it patented the TRM Medical. Then, by the technological point of view, the TRM Medcial using the same physical phenomenon at the basis of magnetic resonance. The magnetic flow intensity of TRM Medical goes from 0.4 to 2.35 millitesla and from 17 to 100 frequency kilohertz. The magnetic flow intensity varies depending to treatment program. Different therapeutic programs are available in the treatment of osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and sports injuries. The TRM Medical carries out a selective stimulation of cells, then the program used to treat the osteoarthritis activate the chondrocytes with a following stimulation of cartilage regeneration, while the specific program for the osteoporosis stimulate the osteoblasts and expected as a result an increase of bone formation.
Basic principles of magnetic resonance
The magnetic resonance relies on the fact that a hydrogen proton rotates around its axis, thus creating electromagnetic energy. The cells to work needs this energy. The hydrogen ions are part of a water molecule that present about the 70% of the total mass of human body. Substantially, all the tissues contain water molecules. This is important because the energy needed by the cells is “light”, of less intensity and must be product around the same cells in the tissue, so they can absorb this energy. They make it in a selective way, the osteoblasts absorb a different kind of energy compared to that of chondrocytes and other cell lines. The energy, its intensity and the frequency depend by the proton rotation, so the energy produced by hydrogen ions varies if we intervene of rotation. By the electromagnetic energy coming from the device thanks to resonance phenomenal, it’s possible change the proton rotation in a selective way and then produce specific energy required by some cells. We could say that the TRM Medical is able to “feed” some cells with energy, encouraging them to produce more collagen than that habitually produced; in the same way, encouraging the chondrocytes to produce cartilage and the osteoblasts to produce osteoid.
This is the base of the regenerative effect of TRM Medical, that made a big difference compared to the conventional magnetotherapy (PEMF) or other therapies that doesn’t have selective effects of cells.
Several scientific and clinical studies conducted on cells culture, models of animals and humans confirm that the TRM Medical active the chondrocytes, osteoblasts and fibroblasts, with a following regenerative effect on the cartilage and bone formation; the result is a sensitive improvement of clinical conditions of patients affected by osteoarthritis and osteoporosis (6-15). In osteoarthritis cases, the general improvement after only one cycle of TRM Medical of 5 or 7 days ranges from 60% to 80% and the pain reduction increase to 50% of the initial value. Has been shown that all these improvements reach the best result between 8 weeks and 6 months after the therapy, and the last from 1 to 3 years period. Another benefit of the TRM Medical is the absence of adverse effects and any kind of risk. There are only some indications. The TRM Medical can be used as unique therapy or in addition to other medical treatments, reduction pain therapy or surgery in the case of osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, serious and chronic damages to tendons and muscles, serious and chronic injuries to ligament or disc herniation. It can bring benefits for avascular necrosis of the hip, renal osteodystrophy, ankylosing spondylitis and rheumatoid arthritis.
