How does papimi work?

How it works…

  1. The electrical energy stored in the capacitor is conducted through a specific plasma chamber and transferred to the treatment loop.
  2. An impulse occurs. This impulse resembles a damped vibration with an impulse length of approx. 50 µs. The base frequency averages at 240 kHz.
  3. The energy is transferred through the plasma chamber (aerial spark gap). In the maximums and minimums of the damped vibration, high frequency vibration peaks (spikes) occur within the Mega- and Giga-Hertz range. The repetition rate (pulse rate) varies between 1 and 8 Hz or can be modulated.
  4. High electric voltages up to 40 kV and peak currents from up to 10,000 A occur within the treatment loop. This enables papimi to reach levels of energy transfer of 96 Ws (Joule) per impulse with a magnetic induction of 50-100 mT.
  5. The body is penetrated by a magnetic field that releases weak, electrical tensions and electrical currents with the same frequency like the initial magnetic impulses.

How does the ion-induction with papimi work?

The induced tension influences the energy balance of the somatic cells (mitochondria). This tension leads to an increased membrane potential (electroporation). As a general rule, the effect is athermal.

The pulses penetrate the organism. The flow density of the papimi-device, the magnetic field and the electric impact decrease with increasing distance of the treatment loop to the body.
