NUS team creates magnetic device to aid muscle recovery

A team of NUS researchers led by Assoc Prof Alfredo Franco-Obregon from the Dept of Surgery at Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and the Biomedical Institute for Global Health Research and Technology at NUS, has developed a novel medical device which makes use of magnetic fields to simulate the biological effects of exercise and promote muscle recovery. The device, called MRegen, had undergone two clinical trials and delivered promising results on both healthy individuals and anterior cruciate ligament knee surgery patients.
