Pioneering NASA Research
NASA noticed physical and psychological deteriorations in astronauts returning from space missions, even for short periods of time.
They undertook research that determined the essential causative factor was that the astronauts were outside the normal 7,83 Hz Schumann Resonance EMF signals of the earth.
They discovered artificially created PEMF signals eliminated the problem.

Dr. Thomas J. Goodwin is best known for his work in physiology and bioengineering research. That includes the study of human physiology and tumor biology, 3-D models as microbial hosts for infectious disease, and research into the effects of ultra-low frequency electromagnetic fields on human tissues.
Dr. Goodwin was granted 20 U.S. patents, with several disclosures pending. He has published more than 45 peer-reviewed scientific papers and is the recipient of more than 55 NASA Scientific and Technical awards. He has been based at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas.
Overall Research Results
The 4 year NASA study led by Dr. Thomas Goodwin, Ph.D., on the ability of PEMF to improve the growth and repair of tissues in mammals is groundbreaking research.
The research was not limited to PEMF therapy, but also included forms of energy medicine including lasers, LEDs, and static magnets. The team discovered PEMFs were the most effective in healing and regeneration.
Dr. Goodwin and his team looked at many different PEMF parameters including frequency, waveform, intensity, etc. What NASA found was that the best results and greatest efficacy came from Low Frequency, Low Intensity, and Rapidly varying PEMF signals. Basically, frequencies and intensities that closely match what the Earth gives us with a signal that produces maximum healing effects on the body!
Low Intensity: 1 – 20 microTesla, which is even less than the strength of the earth’s magnetic field (33 – 66 microTesla)
Additionally, NASA found that slowly varying (millisecond pulse, sine wave), non-varying (static magnetic) and LASERS had little or no effect.
The NASA study on frequency
A waveform (TVEMF) generator of original design and capability was developed and used to generate the square wave waveform of strengths 1-6 mA (AC), 10 Hz variable duty cycle. NHNP cells were subjected to these extremely low-frequency, pulse-width modulated magnetic fields.
The NASA study related to intensity and waveform
Initial results with the NHNP cells were quite startling, using extremely low-level magnetic fields (1 –20 microTesla). That is lower than the approximately 50 microTesla magnetic field strength of the Earth. They found the low-amplitude, rapidly time-varying magnetic fields exerted a very potent effect on the proliferation, morphology, and gene expression of the cells in culture, both in standard 2-dimensional culture plates as well as cells organized into 3-dimensional tissue clusters.
NASA discovered that the benefits of low frequency, low intensity, rapidly varying square wave PEMF includes better healing and regeneration of damaged or diseased tissue, greater cell longevity, accelerated cell growth, improved cellular voltage (mainly observed in nerve cells), upregulation of genes related to collagen production, cell restoration, and cell growth. NOTE: upregulation is a mechanism that increases the creation of certain gene products.
This study is a landmark in proving the efficacy of PEMF therapy on human cells for healing, growth, and regeneration, specifically human nerve cells. These findings confirm that the human body needs frequencies and intensities close to what the earth provides, along with a rapidly varying waveform.
Dr. Goodwin has a patent on a PEMF device that uses these parameters. NASA’s prototype developed at the Johnson Space center uses the low frequency, low intensity rapidly varying waveform.
A Sample Of Additional PEMF Research
There is a vast amount of PEMF research available on the internet. Use Google to find it. The research here should not be read to imply in any way that the iMRS device has been designed, tested, or approved to treat any specific medical condition.
