About Us

iPulser’s mission is to bring a patient-focused approach to the development of advanced medical technologies, to create a digital clinician, and a human experience that promotes health and wellbeing.

From the founders: “The advent of precision medicine is moving us closer to more precise, predictable and powerful health care that is customized for the individual patient.

iPulser creates personalized medical technology that interacts with an individual’s autonomic nervous system for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of an ailment.

The iPulser product is a revolutionary non-pharmacological and non-invasive system that effectively treats chronic pain, providing FDA approved Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) therapy to stimulate and metabolically stimulate cells to resolve cellular dysfunction and support overall wellness.

The iPulser system is the result of 12 years of research and development in hospitals and clinics with hundreds of patients in varying states of chronic pain.

An eight-month study of over 100 subjects and 6 doctors has been completed. The study results demonstrated an 87% of subjects experiencing a drop in pain, and 71% experiencing a substantial drop of 30% improvement or better.

Today, 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. It is the most affecting clinical problem in America and growing every year within our aging population.

Millions of Americans have resorted to pain medication, creating yet another chronic social issue: our opioid epidemic, with more than 11 million people misusing prescription opioids.

How iPulser Personalizes Pain Treatment

iPulser personalizes pain treatment through its powerful mobile app and integrated web-based clinical AI platform. The app guides the patient through a personal digital self-assessment, which along with macro data and iPulser’s patent-pending algorithm, formulates treatment programs tailored to that patient, for that condition, at that time.

  • Treat YOUR specific pain - neck, back, legs - one treatment doesn't fit every problem.
  • iPulser emits pulsed electro-magnetic fields to stimulate your own autonomic nervous system (ANS).
  • Stimulating your ANS promotes the healing process and restores normal functions and relieves pain in the targeted area.
