Assisi Loop

About Assisi Loop® 10cm

The Assisi Loop® offers all animals a safe, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical pain management technology that can be used as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction with the treatment plan your veterinarian has in place. PEMF is used in pain management, osteoarthritis, inflammation, post-surgical healing and wound healing. 

It provides targeted Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (targeted PEMF) in a portable, easy-to-use device that can be used in clinic or in the home. The Loop has been proven to reduce pain and inflammation and has been cleared by the FDA for palliative treatment of post-operative oedema and pain in humans.

The 10cm Loop has a diameter of 10cms (4 inches) and a treatment depth of 5 inches on either side of the black coil applicator. This size is appropriate for conditions that cover a smaller area such as eyes, mouth, limbs and paws/hooves.

The Assisi Loop® can be used adjunctively with laser therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic and pain and inflammation medications. It helps clients to bring healing home. Use of the Assisi Loop will NOT interfere with standard treatment procedures or pain management medication.

The Assisi Loop® has been used in dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and other animals for pain management, osteoarthritis, inflammation, oedema (swelling), post-surgical healing and wound healing.

The Loop treats:

  • Orthopaedic injuries
  • Degenerative disorders
  • Neurological issues
  • Post-surgical pain and swelling
  • Internal inflammatory conditions
  • Wound care

How does the Assisi Loop work?

In general, tPEMF can be used to speed healing, reduce inflammation, and lower pain levels. For any kind of orthopedic injury or surgery, the Loop is a great tool to use in the recovery stage. The field penetrates fur, bandages, and casts to reach all the tissue in the target area. 

By emitting bursts of microcurrent electricity, the Assisi Loop creates a field which evenly penetrates both soft and hard body tissue around the target area. This electromagnetic field causes a chemical cascade, which activates the Nitric Oxide cycle. Nitric Oxide is a key molecule in healing for humans and animals. The compound is released when we exercise, and when we are injured, for the body to naturally repair itself.

The Loop increases Nitric Oxide production to help speed healing of soft and hard tissues--that includes skin, tendons, ligaments, bones and organs. The specific ratio of frequency to burst width used by the Loop has been found to be the most effective at delivering the amount of current that is similar to what is already used by the body. More is not always better, and too much Nitric Oxide production can actually slow healing. When choosing a PEMF device, it is good to know that more power is not correlated with faster healing.

Will my pet feel anything?

While the Assisi Loop REGULATES blood flow, it can increase blood flow and tissue oxygenation for patients who have poor blood flow to areas, which improves the overall tissue health and reduces pain associated with lack of sufficient oxygen. We often hear reports from pet owners that their animal relaxes as soon as they start their treatments with the Loop. With the many healing benefits that the Loop offers, this is not surprising.

Some animals will notice the increased blood flow because with increased circulation there is often a warming or tingling sensation. This is subtle, however, and many animals won't notice at all.

How do I use the Loop?

Regardless of what is being treated, we recommend that you start with 3 to 4 15-minute treatments per day for acute and chronic or degenerative conditions.

For acute conditions (such as post-surgical treatment or recovery from a trauma), we recommend that you continue 3 to 4 treatments per day for the first week or so and then taper off for the next 7 to 10 days or until the condition is fully healed.

For chronic or degenerative conditions, we recommend that you continue with 3 to 4 treatments per day for 7 to 10 days and monitor the animal until you see improved mobility and less pain response. Again, you can taper down to 1 or 2 treatments per day or even 1-3 treatments per week. With some chronic and degenerative conditions, the patient may get to the point that they would only be treated as needed for pain, particularly if it is a condition that is prone to flare-ups.

Ultimately, you want to consider that the Assisi Loop is catalyzing the anti-inflammatory cascade as well as accelerating the body’s own healing properties. We rely on veterinarians to assess the animal and to work with the pet owner on the best treatment protocols for each case.

What is the therapy field like? How large, what shape, etc.?

For the 10cm Loop, the effective treatment zone extends 12.5 cm above and below the plane of the applicator coil. The diameter of the zone is also 12.5cm at its widest point around the applicator coil.

How soon will I see results?

For acute inflammation, you should see noticeable relief after the first or second treatment. With chronic or degenerative issues, you may not see notable results for 1 to 2 weeks. You’ll want to continue the treatments as recommended for continued long-term healing.

Why do I need to talk to a veterinarian to get the Loop?

Firstly, your family veterinarian may also carry the Assisi Loops so they may be able to get you one. Assisi’s relationship with veterinary professionals is paramount to your pet’s health. Veterinarians are able to determine the severity of an issue and are generally able to pinpoint the specific area in the animal’s body that needs treatment. Veterinarians work with clients and their pets directly and advise them on the most effective treatment plans. Often the Assisi Loop is a part of an integrated multi-modal treatment plan. Pet owners benefit from visiting their vets on a regular basis, getting assessments on their pet’s progress and up-to-date advice on continued treatment with the Loop. Pet owners have the advantage of monitoring their animals at home and determining with their vet the best course for long-term treatment.

How long will the Loop last?

The Assisi Loop 2.0 offers a minimum of 150 15-minute treatments.

The life of the Loop depends on the battery. You're likely to get more than the minimum number of treatments noted above if you allow the Loop to recharge for 2 hours after every 15-minute treatment. At this time, there is no way to recharge or replace the battery. One Assisi Loop can last anywhere from 3 weeks to 6 months, depending on the condition being treated and the number of treatments required per day.

Will my pet insurance cover the cost of the Loop?

Most pet owner insurance will cover prescribed treatments. We recommend that you contact your insurance company for more information.

Can the Assisi Loop® be used over metal implants in pets?

The size of veterinary implants are not sufficient to significantly distract, weaken or otherwise adversely affect the therapeutic effect of the Loop’s signal. Additionally, many veterinary surgical implants are made of non-magnetic materials, so there are no magnetic induction effects from the Loop’s signal.

Can the Assisi Loop® be used on a pet with a pacemaker or other implanted medical electronic devices?

Out of an abundance of caution, we recommend not using the Assisi Loop if you or your pet has a pacemaker or other electronic devices.

How do I make sure the LOOP stays in place?

Keeping the pet in your lap or in a contained area can be helpful in ensuring the full treatment is completed. Please note that if you plan to use a metal crate for treatment, the metal can diminish the impact of the treatment. While it is not dangerous, it will likely reduce the dose received.

How do I dispose of the Assisi Loop®?

You can take the Loop to any facility that offers electronics recycling. This will allow for responsible disposal of the lithium batteries as well as the copper wire. Alternatively, return to us, and we will do this for you.
