MDCure By Aerotel - For Back Pain Relief

Studies & Videos


Clinical study design

Aerotel USA, Inc. conducted a randomized, double-blind clinical study at the University of Bridgeport School of Chiropractic (UBSC) under the auspices of Anthony J. Lisi, D.C., UBSC Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences. Dr. Lisi is National Director, Chiropractic Services at the Veterans Health Administration and in 2017, was named Chiropractor of the Year by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).

The aim of the study was to measure the effectiveness of Aerotel’s portable PEMF device* when applied, along with standard clinical care, to subjects with mixed duration mechanical low back pain (LBP). The primary endpoints were functional capacity measured by the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) at baseline, 6 weeks, and 12 weeks. Analysis was conducted on the intent-to-treat population and as a trend of change in pain scores over time using repeated measures Analysis of Variance (ANOVA).

Results and conclusion

When outcomes were measured post- versus pre-treatment using the ODI, considered the “gold standard” of low back pain and functional measurement tools, patients treated with Aerotel’s PEMF technology reported improvements in ODI scores 3X better compared to patients not treated with Aerotel’s PEMF technology. Results prove that Aerotel’s PEMF device is safe and effective in improving function and decreasing pain in patients with acute and chronic mechanical LBP.

Almost everyone will have low back pain at some point in their lives. It can affect anyone at any age, and it is increasing—disability due to back pain has risen by more than 50% since 1990.


If you’ve ever groaned, “Oh, my aching back!”, you are not alone. Back pain is one of the most common medical problems, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives.
