Investigation of the Effect of Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) on Collagenase Enzyme Kinetics

Abstract

In our earlier work we have discussed the design and development of an extremely low frequency (ELF) pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) system that produces time varying magnetic field in the range of 0.5mt to 2.5mT. 2D and 3D simulation results of the induced magnetic field produced by the system of two pairs of air core Helmholtz coils were also presented. In this study we present the modified version of the ELF PEMF system and discuss its application to study the effect of varying parametric changes of ELF PEMF radiation on Collagenase enzymes that plays a key role in the process of wound healing. The findings from this study can be used to determine the optimal characteristics of the applied ELF PEMF for wound treatment.
