Abstract In recent years there has been an overwhelming interest in pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) used for various biomedical applications. The application of low frequency PEMF for selective control of cellular function has created a new dimension for therapeutic intervention strategies. A number of investigations demonstrated that low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) enable the induction of significant current in tissues and allow for an enhanced biological effect and thus, can facilitate wound healing.
