THERAPEUTIC EFFICACY OF TAMMEF ( Therapeutic Application of Musically Modulated Electromagnetic Field ) SYSTEM IN CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME

  title={THERAPEUTIC EFFICACY OF TAMMEF ( Therapeutic Application of Musically Modulated Electromagnetic Field ) SYSTEM IN CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME},
  author={Nicola Giordano},
The carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is an entrapment neuropathy due to the median nerve compression within the carpal canal. The therapy includes more treatments, therefore we would verify the possible therapeutic efficacy of a musically modulated electromagnetic field called TAMMEF (Therapeutic Application of Musically Modulated Electromagnetic Field) System. We included 120 women, aged from 30 to 60 years, affected by idiopathic CTS, diagnosed by clinical, laboratory findings and… Expand


Efficacy and safety of a musically modulated electromagnetic field (TAMMEF) in patients affected by knee osteoarthritis.
This study suggests that the TAMMEF system is efficacious in the control of pain symptoms and in the reduction of functional limitation in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Expand
Comparison between the analgesic and therapeutic effects of a musically modulated electromagnetic field (TAMMEF) and those of a 100 Hz electromagnetic field: blind experiment on patients suffering from cervical spondylosis or shoulder periarthritis
The results show that the effects of the new TAMMEF therapy are equivalent to those obtained with the ELF, whose parameters are modified in time, randomly varying within the respective ranges, so that all the possible codes can occur during a single application. Expand
[Carpal tunnel syndrome].
The purpose of the operation is to relieve the pressure in the carpal tunnel by dissecting the transverse ligament, which can be done in an open approach, endoscopic approach or limited invasive approach. Expand
Neurophysiological classification of carpal tunnel syndrome: assessment of 600 symptomatic hands
The aim of this study was to standardise the neurophysiological evaluation of CTS, and showed that the majority of advanced cases occurred in older patients (60–80 years), and most of the milder cases (MIN and MILD) occurred in young female patients. Expand
Endoscopic release of the carpal tunnel: a randomized prospective multicenter study.
The best predictors of return to work and to activities of daily living were strength and tenderness variables and two patients in the device group experienced transient ulnar neurapraxia. Expand
[Clinical effectiveness of magnetic field therapy--a review of the literature].
The action on bone healing and pain alleviation of electromagnetic fields was confirmed in most of the trials, and there seems to be a relationship between longer daily application time and positive effects particular in bone-healing. Expand
[Possible therapeutic applications of pulsed magnetic fields].
The authors sought an optimal frequency of the pulsed magnetic field with regard to the character of the disease and focused attention above all on treatment of acute and chronic inflammatory conditions of the locomotor apparatus, ischaemia of the blood vessels of the lower extremities, dyspeptic syndrome, lactation mastitis and other diseases.

Electrodiagnostic evaluation of carpal tunnel syndrome
The need to use reference values for populations such as diabetics and active workers, where normative values differ from conventional cutoffs used to confirm suspected CTS, is presented and the value of needle electromyography (EMG) is examined. Expand
Effect of Electromagnetic Fields on Bone Mineral Density and Biochemical Markers of Bone Turnover in Osteoporosis: A Single-Blind, Randomized Pilot Study
The findings suggest that PEMFs may stimulate osteogenesis, possibly by increasing osteoblastic activity, in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Expand
Graphic representation of pain
Most patients could readily use visual analogue and graphic rating scales despite having no previous experience and use of these scales is the best available method for measuring pain or pain relief. Expand
