An electromagnetic field is a common and natural force that surrounds us all the time. It is the combination of an invisible electric field, produced by stationary charges, and a magnetic field, produced by moving charges (currents). It is one of the four fundamental forces of nature.
One of the phenomena of electromagnetic fields is electromagnetic induction, which is the appearance of electric current in a conductor immersed in an electromagnetic field. Another phenomenon of electromagnetic fields is resonant coupling, which occurs when the natural frequencies of the two systems – a source and a receiver — are approximately the same.
Through this physical process, studies of Nikolas Tesla in the late 19th century, and recently studies done by MIT, show how to transfer wireless energy. (See more on TED Global – Wireless Electricity)
Autem’s technology uses the same physical principle of electromagnetic induction and resonance by using specific electromagnetic radiation to send a signal to the cancer cells. Similar to the conductor immersed in an electromagnetic field, the human body functions as an antenna of this specific signal, and because the radiation is modulated at patient-specific frequencies, only the cancer cells are targeted by this type of induction and resonance signal.
