A significant number of clinical, animal and cell studies have shown the therapeutic effects of pulsed radiofrequency electromagnetic fields on postoperative pain and wound healing. The references below are studies performed with devices that emit pulsed radiofrequency energy at a carrier frequency of 27.12MHz. The carrier frequency of BioElectronics RecoveryRx:
