ONDAMED: A better way to make you better

What is ONDAMED?

ONDAMED is a biofeedback device that a practitioner uses to determine which frequencies of sound, as well as the accompanying weak pulsed electromagnetic fields, cause a response in a patient's autonomic nervous system.

Temporary stimulation by these frequencies, combined with the patient's cognitive and non-cognitive participation, promotes relaxation, muscle re-education, and rehabilitation that returns the body to its former state of wellness.

Thomas Jefferson University Pilot Study Finds ONDAMED® is Safe and Effective

A pilot study conducted by Joel Edman, DSc, FACN, CNS of The Myrna Brynd Center for Integrative Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University demonstrated "significant improvement in pain levels" with the ONDAMED® Pulsed Electromagnetic Field device.

The treatment protocol was only 3 sessions since the purpose of the study was to document safety only. What was unexpected is that a significant reduction in pain was reported with just 3 sessions. The recommended protocol for ONDAMED® is at least 10-12 treatments. All patients were experiencing pain from conditions such as:

Research is already underway in several clinics across the nation to document case studies that have significantly responded to the ONDAMED® including:

trigeminal neuralgia, shin splints, healing of bone fractures, musculoskeletal pain, fibromyalgia, MS, as well as the aforementioned conditions.

The case studies will guide future larger scale research that will help confirm the best use and best protocol for a variety of conditions. For more information on ONDAMED® please visit
