Frequently Asked Questions
What is PEMF and how can it help me?
How soon will I see results?
The most important thing is to incorporate PEMF therapy into your daily routine as part of a healthy life style. The key to success is CONSISTENCY; therefore if you fail to use the therapy on a regular (daily) basis you should not expect any significant health improvements.
“If we neglect our body and our health issues for many years, we can’t expect miraculous improvements overnight. It will take some time, but if you maintain your therapy routine you should see improvements soon”
Can other people use my device as well?
What’s the recommended daily usage?
If you are not suffering chronic pain, 2 X 20 minute session per day, ideally one in the morning and one in the evening, should be sufficient.
Can I overdose myself ?
Does the therapy have any side effects or are there times it should not be used?
DO NO USE PEMF THERAPY IF YOU HAVE A PACEMAKER OR OTHER TYPE OF IMPLANTED ELECTRICAL DEVICE FITTED!
There are several thousand studies on PEMF therapy and we know of no suggestion of side effects. However there are times when PEMF therapy should not be used:
We also do not recommend using PEMF therapy in the following circumstances:
During internal or external bleeding as PEMF therapy helps blood flow so may increase bleeding.
During pregnancy, as we have no information on the effect the therapy has on baby development during pregnancy.
Whilst undergoing cancer treatment.
Do not use the device on your neck (thyroid) area, if you have an overactive thyroid as the therapy may further increase thyroid activity.
What does it feel like:
When we recently asked one of our customers what their PEMF treatment feel like they replied“ Nothing,” ”You don’t feel anything. Except immediately better.”
While you don’t feel the NTS pulses, using the device for 20 minutes, 2 or 3 times a day will essentially feel relaxing. All you do is lie or sit while you treat the effected areas with the correct program for the results you are working toward. No action or physical activity is required. Most people (and animals) simply go to a restful, meditative state or fall asleep. Afterward treatment they arise feeling rested, peaceful and energized…minus some aches and pains.
How is the therapy applied?
What is the expected lifespan of the device?
“As long as you have electricity you can always enjoy your “ORIN” treatment.”
Is the therapy painful, will I feel anything during treatment?
Each device comes with a user guide and treatment frequency table. These tell you exactly how to use the device. You can always call our friendly customer service team to get further help if required.
Can I use PEMF alongside my prescribed medications?
“Orin-UK would never suggest, recommend or encourage you to stop using your prescribed medication or lower your prescribed dose. Please always consult your GP or medical practitioner regarding prescribed medication.”
PEMF vs TENS
A TENS machine is a small, battery-operated device that has electrodes connected to cables from the device.
The electrodes are attached to your skin using self-adhesive pads. When the machine is switched on, small electrical impulses are delivered to the affected area of your body, which you feel as a tingling sensation.
The electrical impulses can block or reduce the pain signals going to the spinal cord and brain, which can help reduce or relieve pain or muscle spasm.
The electric currents can also stimulate the production of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.
TENS may be able to help reduce pain and muscle spasms caused by a wide range of conditions including:
These devices are very different a TENS device may ease pain whilst in use by blocking the pain signals to the brain and stimulating the production of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, but it will do nothing to improve the condition causing the pain so you will have no lasting improvement in your condition.
A PEMF device operates very differently in the way it works on both the cause of the pain as well as treating the pain itself. Continuous regular treatment with a PEMF device will bring about both pain relief and treatment of the underlying cause.
Improves Blood Flow
Speeds up recovery
Speeds up healing
Penetrate through the body
Can PEMF increase the level of my sports performance?
Among the main benefits of PEMF are increased blood flow, providing better oxygen supply to the muscles, improved cell metabolism, resulting in faster nutrient intake, which in turn speeds up the healing and recovery time the body needs for regeneration.
With our devices you can target painful or sore body areas or use them to generally boost your body’s efficiency. This will increase your performance and maintain your healthy cell balance, enabling you to train harder, for longer, and recover quicker.
It will help you achieve your goals in a shorter period of time.

What type of waveforms does Orin devices utilize?
- Blue trace 1: Magnetic induction B pulse
scale: 500mV ~ 2mT
- Red trace 2: current induced into tissue
Not noted in scale, current depends on specific body tissue conductivity. This sample waveform is measured indirectly, using an induction probe. It is proportional to derivation (change) of B in time (dB/dT)
Program P3 waveforms – fixed frequency
Pulses are equally spaced
Frequency can be set in range of 2 to 72 Hz
(This sample approx. 72Hz)
Program P2 waveforms – random frequency
Pulses are generated as groups with randomly selected frequency, varying in seconds.
Range is fixed between 2 to 72Hz.
Program P1 waveforms – wobbling frequency
Pulses are generated as up/down swept sequence of pulses.
Range is fixed between
4 to 40Hz.
