Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0006251A2] The invention relates to a magnetic field device for stimulating and/or supporting bodily functions, for example for healing bone fractures. The device comprises a coil through which a current flows and which is configured in such a way that the body part being treated or stimulated is exposed to the magnetic field generated by the coil, and a current supply unit which delivers the current that flows through the coil and which has a network transformer and at least one switching element. Said switching element carries out so-called phase control of at least one half-wave to control the current flowing through the coil. The invention is characterised in that a control unit is provided and in that said control unit periodically switches the at least one switch element between at least two power stages.
