The Papimi device, developed by Dr. Panos Pappas, stands for Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy (PMFT).
It is a treatment that employs pulsed electromagnetic fields for therapeutic purposes. The device is designed to emit controlled pulses of electromagnetic energy, which interact with the body’s own electromagnetic fields.
How it Works:
The Papimi device operates on the principle of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy. It generates brief but intense electromagnetic pulses that are directed towards targeted areas of the body. These pulses are thought to induce electrical changes at the cellular level. It can penetrate to 25cm depth.
It can influence cellular metabolism, enhance circulation, and promote tissue repair.
The Papimi device has been used for a variety of health conditions, including but not limited to:
papimi stimulates self-regulation.
A healthy cell needs sufficient cell membrane voltage (approx. -70mV to -90mV) in order to maintain its regulatory processes. All illnesses and injuries have one thing in common: The affected cells no longer possess or only partially possess their natural cell membrane potential.
Weakened body cells are stimulated by the Ion-Induction field and raised to their healthy voltage potential. The cell can resume regulatory processes, exchange trace elements and produce corresponding energy molecules.
The papimi pulse is based on a power of up to 40kV and 10kA, which is relevant for the deepest possible penetration of the tissue.
IMPORTANT: Only cells whose membrane potential has decreased react to the pulses of Ion-Induction. papimi does not cause any temperature shifts in the cells.
IIT supports the natural regulation of the cell.
Ion-Induction-Therapy raises the cell membrane potential of the cell as well as the mitochondria. A healthy cell membrane voltage enables ion exchange through membrane proteins and supports regulatory biochemical cascades that are responsible for the optimal functionality and energy supply of the cell.
IIT recharges the cells.
The effect of papimi viewed under the microscope
papimi promotes microcirculation.
Explanations for pain reduction after using Ion-Induction range from the increase in central β-endorphin to hyperpolarization at the motor endplate, to the promotion of local blood flow. It is interesting that current publications on pain treatment by means of PEMF increasingly point to the influences of the nitrogen monoxide system on microcirculation as the most likely cause. Corresponding observations were also made by Dr. univ. med. Dr. rer. Nat. Manfred Hartard:

Success in integrative medicine
papimi Ion-Induction devices have been used in the field of Integrative Medicine for over 30 years. Our users confirm significant successes and use them for the treatment of chronic inflammation. Patients respond particularly well to papimi therapy as it improves their overall quality of life. Ion-Induction optimises the regulatory processes and thereby supports the body’s self-healing powers.
“With papimi, the membrane potential is repolarised, the bioenergetic level is improved and the self-healing processes are activated. Electroporation is promoted, apoptosis is activated and there is a redifferentiation of dividing cells.”
Dr. med. Braun von Gladiß
According to experts on Integrative Medicine papimi can assist in the pursuit of the following goals:
- Pain reduction
- Regulation and optimization of the intestinal flora
- Strengthening the cells and the immune system
- Improvement of the therapy results
- Reduction of side effects of conventional cancer therapies
- Increase in quality of life
- Stimulation of the self-healing powers
Effective to the bone
Meanwhile, the use of Ion-Induction-Therapy with papimi has been adopted by numerous clinics and practices of Physical Medicine. These clinics reportedly use our devices in their own right as well as in addition to classic and integrative therapy concepts in areas such as:
- Degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system & the spine
- Improvement of degenerative joint diseases
- Pain treatments
- Fracture healing
- Breakthrough in therapy resistance
- Wound healing
- Treatment of muscles & tendons
The effectiveness and the positive influence of particularly strong, pulsed electromagnetic fields on bone fractures and bone marrow oedema has been confirmed by many studies. These studies confirm numerous positive effects such as pain relief and wound healing, the development of new blood vessels and an increase in calcium concentration.
Following images depict a bone marrow oedema in the knee joint before and after papimi therapy. The treatment was successful after just 10 sessions.
IS PAPIMI SAFE ?
When targeting the brain with PEMFs, safety concerns naturally arise. Fortunately, ample evidence suggests minimal risk, supported by comprehensive literature reviews on this therapy.
Numerous studies, including those involving intense treatment programs, have reported no significant side effects. Even in complex cases like relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis combined with traumatic brain injury, magnetic brain stimulation was deemed safe.
Concerns about PEMFs promoting brain cancer or seizures have been addressed in studies. PEMFs have been shown to reduce the risk of seizures and not promote the growth of brain glioma tumors.
Research indicates that PEMFs may even reduce the growth of prostate cancer cells, offering a potential alternative treatment approach.
Studies on high-intensity PEMF systems, which carry the highest concern for generating seizures, indicate that PEMFs are highly unlikely to induce seizures. Some research even suggests benefits for epileptic patients.
Various studies involving patients with epilepsy and loss of consciousness did not trigger seizures, indicating that TMS did not activate epileptic foci.
A wealth of clinical research shows that magnetic field exposure has not led to adverse side effects, regardless of treatment intensity or duration, and regardless of the area of the body being treated or the age of the patient. While there are some contraindications and occasional minor side effects, these can typically be managed with protocol adjustments.
papimi applications are usually very well tolerated
These are the known contraindications for electromagnetic therapies:
- Patients carrying or are implanted with any type/model of electronic devices
(e.g., pacemaker, cochlear implants, insulin pumps, hearing aids, etc.)
- Patients with implants of any size and material that are incompatible with magnetic fields
(i.e., not labelled as “MR-safe”)
- Low blood pressure (Hypotension)
- Internal bleeding
- Pregnant women
- Patients with transplanted organs
