99 patients were randomized to examine whether a common pulsing electromagnetic field (PEMF) treatment could reduce the substantial osteopenia that occurs after forearm disuse. Patients wore either sham or active PEMF transducers (both for 1, 2, or 4 h/day) on the distal forearm for 8 weeks. The particular PEMF waveform and durations applied to the patients was revealed to have no effect on the co...
