Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9906109A1] The present invention relates to a device for magneto-therapy which, unlike those currently in use, requires no adjustment in relation to the place of employment and to the subject to be treated. It is also able to perform an action that is well localised on a chosen point of the body and it can be used by physically active persons. To this end, the transducer that produces the magnetic field is fed with pulses whose frequency is cyclically variable from a minimum value to a maximum value, such as to delimit a range that includes the optimal values for each subject, whatever the location. The transducer comprises an inductor with core made of ferrite, or the like, of extremely reduced size.
