PEMF therapy success leads to NewMed Limited.

12 October 2017

Bedfont Scientific Limited has created a subsidiary as part of its long-term development and expansion plans. The new company NewMed Limited will concentrate on its hugely successful range of PEMF therapy systems.

Bedfont Scientific Limited, established in 1976 in Harrietsham, Kent, specialises in exhaled breath and gas monitors which are used in the medical industry. The NewMed division was introduced by Andy Smith in 2014 after he discovered first-hand the benefits of PEMF therapy. Now, 3 years later and having shipped out over 800 PEMF therapy devices, the NewMed Ltd. subsidiary company has been established.

After suffering from sudden unbearable stomach pain, Andy was diagnosed with a hernia and also umbilical abscess (an infection from an ingrown hair). 2 days later, Andy underwent stomach surgery but the surgery led to further complications. Left with an open wound that became infected, Andy was still in pain despite taking strong pain medication. Andy was prescribed antibiotics to fight the infection however he was now on a cocktail of medication which in turn only led to more stomach pain and cramps.

Andy had heard about PEMF therapy from his father; PEMF (Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field) therapy was an idea harnessed by NASA which uses the Earth’s magnetic fields in a concentrated manner to provide non-invasive and drug-free pain relief. PEMF therapy stimulates cellular repair to improve your body’s overall performance and has many benefits such as improving recovery time, pain-relief and sleep.

Andy, tells, “I couldn’t believe how quickly I started to see and feel results. The wound started to clear up and heal properly and the pain was less every day. Within a week I was off the antibiotics and painkillers. I continued PEMF therapy for weeks and when I went to my final follow up meeting with the Surgeon, he looked at the scar and told me he was not expecting to see what I had shown him. He told me that following the infection, he was worried about more medical intervention to clean the wound properly if the infection did not clear, but instead, he was looking at a completely healed scar that looked like it was done a year ago – not 2 months!”

The new subsidiary company will focus on increasing awareness of PEMF therapy, while its parent company Bedfont Scientific will concentrate on developing new products and increasing use of its wide range of existing breath and gas monitoring systems.

Jason Smith, Bedfont’s Managing Director, says, “The success of the NewMed division has led us to what we feel is a natural progression that will further ensure the growth of PEMF therapy throughout the UK. Our aim for NewMed Limited is to continue expanding and helping people improve their quality of life.”

 

 

94% of users find PEMF therapy improves sleep

25 August 2017

With Sleeptember fast approaching, a new study highlights how pulsed electromagnetic fields can help improve sleep

Organised by the Sleep Council, Sleeptember is a month-long campaign aiming to raise awareness of the health benefits from a good night’s sleep. British company, NewMed Ltd., is making people aware that they too can benefit from a good night’s sleep thanks to PEMF therapy.

According to Lisa Artis from The Sleep Council, “Poor sleep and fatigue are common problems affecting millions of people, and just one bad night’s sleep can influence our mood, concentration and alertness. Long-term sleep deprivation has far more serious consequences and has been linked to heart disease, diabetes and stroke.”

Some people do not resolve their sleeping patterns, whilst others resort to medication, however, NewMed are promoting Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy – the drug-free alternative to improving your sleep.

Non-invasive and drug-free, PEMF therapy stimulates cellular repair to improve your body’s overall performance. It is an idea harnessed by NASA, using the Earth’s natural magnetic fields in a concentrated manner and has many benefits such as improving recovery time, pain-relief and sleep.

In the latest study by Pelka (2017), 101 participants were split into two categories; one received PEMF therapy and the other a placebo. Of those who used PEMF therapy, 94% remarked on their improved sleep. Furthermore, from NewMed’s customers who have used PEMF therapy for a number of injuries and ailments, the majority also commented on how not only had PEMF helped them, but how they had also noticed the added benefit of sleeping better.

Becci Wilson was recommended PEMF therapy by her therapist to manage her widespread pain from Fibromyalgia. Becci shares, “I have to admit I don’t really understand the science behind it and after what felt like a lifetime of various surgeries and treatments and medication I was sceptical. However, by after only the first week, the pain had reduced dramatically and I had even been able to reduce my medication intake by 50% and it was a strange feeling, but for the first time in months I slept like a baby.”

Andy Smith, head of sales, adds, “Sleep issues are often overlooked; during Sleeptember we are highlighting how PEMF therapy can help improve your sleep. At NewMed we have a range of devices to support every type of lifestyle, including a mattress topper PEMF therapy device, specifically designed to help get a good night’s rest.”

NewMed Ltd. celebrates 3 years of business with 3 rebounders to give away

14 August 2017

NewMed Ltd., a division of Bedfont® Scientific Ltd., celebrates its 3rd year in business this October with 3 BPod™ rebounders up for grabs.

To celebrate their 3rd birthday coming up in October, NewMed are giving away 3 BPod™ rebounders, approved by ReboundTherapy.org, the governing body for rebound therapy.

Rebounding (jumping on a mini trampoline or trampette) was researched and reported on for its benefits in 1980 by NASA and consists of low-impact exercise performed on a rebounder. Since its initial discovery, the therapy has been popular and has been proven to be beneficial for a number of conditions.

The BPod™ rebounder is ideal for rehabilitation, care centres, physiotherapy clinics or even just everyday health and fitness, which is why this chance to win is open to everyone.

Andy Smith, head of sales, explains, “Although NewMed specialises in PEMF therapy, our aim is to help improve people’s quality of life and our wide range of other products, like the BPod™ compliment this goal. To celebrate our 3rd birthday, we have 3 BPod™ rebounders to give away and all you have to do is get in touch and tell us why you would benefit from the BPod™ for the chance to win one for you or your workplace.”

Last Christmas, NewMed donated a BPod™ to Starjumpz Children’s Centre in Crowborough. Joanna Brett, CEO Starjumpz and occupational therapist, commented,“Rebounding has multiple health and neurodevelopmental benefits. It improves balance, posture, coordination and sensory processing. It also helps the children who have low muscle tone improve their posture and core stability. The overall effects help children become more independent and confident with increased wellbeing and most importantly it is great fun!”

How PEMF therapy can help to improve Arthritis

19 June 2017

NewMed, based in Harrietsham, is the one-stop-shop for PEMF therapy, which has been clinically proven to relieve pain and improve the symptoms of arthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Awareness Week, organised by the NRAS, occurs on 19-25th June this year and is an important week to raise awareness and challenge misconceptions and attitudes about RA1. This year NewMed want to make people aware that the use of Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields (PEMF) technology offers RA sufferers a drug-free, pain-relief therapy that can also help improve their mobility and help them reduce their pain medication.

RA is a chronic autoimmune disease where the body mistakenly attacks healthy tissue causing pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of function in the joints2. It is estimated that approximately 350 million people in the world have arthritis3.

Non-invasive and drug-free, PEMF therapy stimulates cellular repair to improve your body’s overall performance. It is an idea harnessed by NASA, using the Earth’s natural magnetic fields in a concentrated manner to assist the healing process and relieve people of their pain.

A review by Ganesan (2009) found conclusively that “PEMF not only alleviates the pain in the arthritis condition but it also affords chondroprotection, exerts anti-inflammatory action and helps in bone remodelling… this could be developed as a viable alternative for arthritis therapy”4.

Maria Lopez Rodriguez used the PEMF therapy with the EMPpad iMRS whole body mat 3 times a day, for 15 minutes. She explains, “I was diagnosed with RA 10 years ago but I used natural protocol to deal with the inflammation. However, I still had terrible migraines and a low neutrophil count which made me prone to infections. Since using the therapy these have now gone and my health has improved a lot overall and I have had a better quality of sleep. My blood pressure used to be quite low, 100/65 and the last time I had it checked it is now textbook perfect 120/80. Since using the therapy I have more energy and have experienced all these health benefits and I have only been using it for a total of 2 months – I have now purchased a system of my own and I expect the benefits to keep growing.”

Pain-relief in sport: How PEMF therapy is a drug-free alternative

12 June 2017

Amidst concerns about over-the-counter anti-inflammatories and the effects on athletes’ health and performances, NewMed, are highlighting the drug-free benefits of PEMF therapy for sport

Over-the-counter pain-relief medication such as ibuprofen and paracetamol have long been a concern in sports, with many athletes, professional and amateur, over-using and misusing medication to keep injuries at bay. According to a poll for BBC’s State of Sport week, an alarming 60% of amateur athletes took over-the-counter anti-inflammatories to support their performance or recovery at least once a week, adding further fuel to the flames that “the use of painkillers in sport has reached epidemic proportions”[1].

In a recent story covered by the BBC regarding painkillers in sports, Dr Ajai Seth, from the Sports and Exercise Clinic at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, expressed how someone over-training and relying on such over-the-counter medication would risk the ability of their bones to heal properly, not only impacting their career but also their quality of life. He also added that prolonged use can lead to increased cardiac issues, kidney failure and worsening respiratory conditions. [1]

NewMed, a division of Bedfont® Scientific Ltd., is the one-stop-shop for PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy in the UK, providing athletes with the chance to improve their training and have drug-free pain-relief. PEMF therapy, an idea harnessed by NASA, uses the Earth’s natural magnetic fields in a concentrated manner to assist the healing process and relieve people of their pain. Non-invasive and drug-free, PEMF therapy stimulates cellular repair to improve your body’s overall performance.

As a professional athlete, multi award-winning gymnast James Hall, who trains at Pegasus Gymnastics Club, Maidstone, is encouraging other athletes to incorporate PEMF therapy into their training routine.

James says, “When using PEMF therapy in my training schedule I immediately noticed a difference as I didn’t feel as much fatigue and my recovery time was a lot quicker. Recovery is key to training; If I don’t recover properly I do not train properly because my training won’t be at its best. Also, as a professional gymnast, I am always travelling to enter competitions and finding the time to recover is difficult. I benefited from using PEMF therapy as it sped up the recovery process. I can honestly recommend that anyone training should at least try PEMF and see the difference it really makes.”

Andy Smith, head of sales, says, “At NewMed we understand that people lead busy and active lifestyles and so we are proud to have a wide range of PEMF therapy devices to suit every lifestyle. We are so proud to have worked with someone as inspiring as James and hope that we can help many more budding athletes improve their training regime with PEMF therapy.”

NewMed’s Latest Gadget Helps Improve Mental Health.

 23rd May 2017

NewMed now stocks ELF emmit, a smartphone-operated PEMF therapy device to improve mental wellbeing.

NewMed, the UK’s one stop shop for PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy is now offering customers a nifty gadget that connects to your smartphone and helps to improve your mental wellbeing. The ELF emmit is worn as a headband and connects to the earphone port of your phone, offering 5 programmes to boost mentality: improve sleep, deepen meditation, reduce stress, improve focus and fast learning.

Due to the social stigmas of mental health, many people are unlikely to admit or even seek help; mental health awareness has been a big concern with an ONS report covering 2001-2013 showing suicide among men has reached its highest levels since the 80’s and the NHS’s survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing found that 1 in 6 adults in England had a common mental disorder.

Most recently, Prince Harry has become the advocate for mental health awareness after he spoke out about his personal experiences and has been highlighting the Heads Together campaign alongside other members of the royal family.

PEMF therapy, an idea harnessed by NASA, uses the Earth’s natural magnetic fields in a concentrated manner to assist the healing process and relieve people of their pain. Non-invasive and drug-free, PEMF therapy stimulates cellular repair to improve your body’s overall performance, including mentality.

Andy Smith, head of sales, says, “With the Heads Together campaign working to eliminate the social stigmas around mental health, we hope that more people will seek help. Many studies have shown the benefits of PEMF on reducing stress and its ability to help improve sleep; ELF emmit puts this to practice with a great gadget that you can use anytime, anywhere.”


NewMed gives children the gift of bounce this Christmas

 

22nd December 2016

 

NewMed Ltd., based in Harrietsham, donates a BPod rebounder to the Starjumpz Children’s Centre in Crowborough

NewMed Ltd., a division of Kent based Bedfont® Scientific, dressed up as elves on Tuesday 20thDecember to give Starjumpz Children’s Centre the early gift of a BPod™ rebounder.

Although NewMed specialises in PEMF therapy, their aim is to help improve people’s quality of life and their wide range of other products also complement this goal. In particular, the BPod™ rebounder, which has been approved by ReboundTherapy.org, the governing body for rebound therapy, will be used to help the children at Starjumpz.

Rebounding (jumping on a mini trampoline or trampette) was researched and reported on for its benefits in 1980 by NASA and consists of low-impact exercise performed on a rebounder. Since its initial discovery, the therapy has been popular and has been proven to be beneficial for a number of conditions.

Established in 1989, Starjumpz Children’s centre has a multidisciplinary team including Paediatricians, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, and Speech and Language Therapists. The centre is well known for offering support to children and young people with learning, developmental, motor and behavioural challenges.

 

Joanna Brett, CEO Starjumpz and occupational therapist, comments,

“We are thrilled to accept the generous donation of a BPod™ rebounder from NewMed in time for Christmas. We are excited to be able to use this special rebounder with children who come to us for treatment. Many of the children we see at Starjumpz, including those with Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Dyspraxia, cannot independently use a rebounder; the BPod™ will enable them to bounce alone due to the safety frame and handle.”

“Rebounding has multiple health and neurodevelopmental benefits. It improves balance, posture, coordination and sensory processing. It also helps the children who have low muscle tone improve their posture and core stability. The overall effects help children become more independent and confident with increased wellbeing and most importantly it is great fun!”


DISCOVER A LIFE WITHOUT PAIN: PEMF therapy and Arthritis

1st September 2016

 

Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy is a drug-free pain-relief therapy that can help with Arthritis

Arthritis, a condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint, is suspected to affect a mammoth 10 million people in the UK alone. Contrary to common belief, it affects people of all ages; from the elderly to adolescents to children. A challenging disease that has no cure, however, PEMF therapy has been clinically proven to relieve and improve the detrimental effects of Arthritis.

PEMF therapy, an idea harnessed by NASA, uses the Earth’s natural magnetic fields in a concentrated manner to assist the healing process and relieve people of their pain. Non-invasive and drug-free, PEMF therapy stimulates cellular repair to improve your body’s overall performance.

Colin, 77, Portsmouth, says, “After a discussion with my sister in law who was extremely pleased with the results of the therapy, my wife and I, who both suffer from various age related aches and pain decided to try PEMF therapy for ourselves. My wife suffers more with back pain and I have a very arthritic knee, as well as, tired and aching limbs from compensating from the loss of use from one knee. Within a short while of starting the PEMF therapy, we were both markedly improved. We are far less tired after normal activities now, and I am able to walk without pain.”

Andy Smith, NewMed Business Development Manager, says, “NewMed will be attending the Living with Arthritis: a happier and healthier you show in Manchester on Saturday 10th September. We will be bringing our entire range of PEMF therapy devices for you to try and can help you find the best device for you and your budget; our whole aim is to help people discover a life without pain.”

NewMed expand – one stop shop for PEMF Therapy in the UK

 

28th July 2016

PEMF therapy is a great way to treat a numerous amount of conditions to either eradicate the need for medication or reduce the amount that needs to be taken. For the body to work there has to be electrical impulses between cells to keep them healthy. Unfortunately there are many things that can disrupt this necessary energy and cause health to deteriorate.

Causes of electromagnetic disturbance in the body
Poor health, trauma from bruises, muscle tears, exercise and even aging can cause the electromagnetic balance in the body to decline. This can lead to the bodies organs, tissues and cells to work at a slower rate. Even the repair of broken bones and muscles can be disturbed by the electromagnetic disturbance. Through the use of PEMF therapy your body can be brought back into balance helping you to repair and even prevent a multitude of problems.

How can PEMF therapy help me?
PEMF therapy helps  by restoring the body’s electromagnetic energy helping to improve both physical and mental health. Here are a few examples of conditions that PEMF therapy can help improve:

  • Inflammation
  • Circulation
  • Muscle function
  • Bone healing
  • Stress reduction
  • Oxygenation within the blood
  • Wound healing
  • Mental health

By improving circulation this type of therapy can help to improve the way in which the body carries around vital nutrients to the organs they are most needed. This helps with the regeneration of cells to improve healing time whether cuts and bruises from exercise or day to day activity to broken bones. Digestion problems can be helped too such as IBS as can mental illness because of the way physical well-being can affect it.

Improve age related ailments
As we age the body does not work as well as it did in earlier years. This can lead to a variety of age related problems that many people just put up with such as aches and pains, arthritis and even the toll that aging takes on exterior appearance. By improving the blood flow and the rate at which the body is able to heal without medication, PEMF therapy can help improve mobility and in turn isolation that many people feel as the get older and feel they are unable to partake in certain activities.
Is PEMF safe for everyone?
Being a non-medicinal complementary therapy, current health conditions and medication will not be affected. In fact many people as a result of using PEMF therapy find that their need for pain relief, circulatory medication and other medical interventions are lowered so their body is not constantly bombarded with chemicals. Without the need for so much medication side effects that can make people feel sluggish and unwell also subside giving them a better quality of life.

NewMed rent and sell PEMF equipment to individuals and companies to help them improve the service they offer to their clients/patients. With their devices they have already helped to improve the lives of many people that have been reliant on medication for years. In addition the therapy can help to reduce the risk of people suffering from certain ailments later in life.

Scientists have used low-intensity electromagnetic fields to treat cancer patients in trials

1st July 2016

Early trials on patients with advanced liver cancer show low-level fields could shrink tumors. Scientists have used low-intensity electromagnetic fields to treat cancer patients in trials which they say could lead to the development of a new type of anti-tumor therapy.

Patients hold a spoon-shaped antenna in their mouths to deliver a very low-intensity electromagnetic field in their bodies. In trials of patients with advanced liver cancer, the therapy – given three times a day – resulted in long-term survival for a small number of those monitored, the team has reported in the British Journal of Cancer. Their tumours shrank, while healthy cells in surounding tissue were unaffected.

PEMF therapy: innovative treatment for Diabetic Neuropathy

27th July 2016

The incidence of type 2 diabetes has increased strikingly in the last several decades. Accompanying this development has been an increase in the incidence of diabetic neuropathy, leading to progressive pain, loss of sensation (primarily in the feet), weakness, and disability. Conventional therapy has consisted largely of attempts to control the diabetes and to moderate the pain.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy is a safe, and non-invasive way to reduce pain and inflammation. It can be used to supplement and enhance currently existing healthcare modalities.

Neuropathic pain, and specifically peripheral neuropathy, arises from ectopic firing of unmyelinated C-fibers with accumulation of sodium and calcium channels.5 Because PEMF safely induces low frequency currents that can depolarize, repolarize, and hyperpolarize neurons, it has been hypothesized that directing this energy into the sole of one foot could potentially modulate neuropathic pain.​

Workplace Health Week 2016

6th June 2016

Workplace health week took place from the 23rd to 27th May. The week was full of activities designed to help businesses inspire their employees to become more active at work.

NHS guidelines state that adults should try to do at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity, such as cycling or fast walking, every week to stay healthy – but an estimated 40 per cent of people do not exercise enough, according to Public Health England.

Alongside Bedfont Scientific we encourage our team to get involved with a different focus each day, our itinerary for the week was as follows;

Monday Motivation – A piece of fruit and a motivational quote for everyone in the office.

Teamwork Tuesday – A team building activity!

Workout Wednesday – A morning workout in the office followed by healthy juices and smoothies.

Thursday – Midday Mile, a walk around Harrietsham village.

Feel Good Friday – 5 minutes relaxation on the Magnetovital PEMF therapy vario couch and a bottle of our Donat Mg Magnesium Water.

A new lease on life for fibromyalgia sufferers provided by NewMed’s PEMF therapy

27th April 2016

NewMed, based in Maidstone, Kent, is the one-stop shop for PEMF therapy to help with fibromyalgia.

NewMed, a division of Bedfont® Scientific Ltd, specialises in the drug-free pain-relief therapy known as Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy whose products help relieve the symptoms of fibromyalgia sufferers across the UK.

Fibromyalgia Awareness Day is on Thursday 12th May and although a relatively unknown disease, it is not so uncommon, affecting around 3-6% of the world’s population, with prevalence being higher in women than men [1].

The cause of fibromyalgia remains a mystery and is, therefore, difficult to treat, however, PEMF therapy has been proven to help with the widespread pain and aids sleep, two of the most common symptoms.

PEMF therapy has been adopted by NASA, which replicates the Earth’s natural magnetic fields in a concentrated manner to assist the healing process and relieve people of their pain. Non-invasive and drug-free, PEMF therapy stimulates cellular repair to rapidly heal and improve your body’s overall performance.

Becci Wilson, diagnosed with fibromyalgia, explains her experience with PEMF therapy, 

“By the end of the first week, I had more energy. I could cope with a full day at work and instead of needing to go to bed as soon as I got home, I could cook dinner, do some housework and more importantly walk the dog. The pain had reduced dramatically and I had even been able to reduce my medication intake by 50%.”

Andy Smith, NewMed Business Development Manager, says,

“PEMF therapy is a relatively new concept that is having life changing results. This is a drug-free, harmless and beneficial pain relief treatment that users are benefiting dramatically. From helping someone recover from an injury or operation to helping someone relax and improve their overall health, PEMF therapy gets results. At NewMed we offer a wide range of devices to suit everyone’s needs – we are the one stop shop for PEMF therapy.”
