High Intensity Tesla Stimulation technology (HITS®) demonstrates a wide applicability in the fields of Aesthetics, Urology, Rehabilitation, Physiotherapy and Pain Management. By applying a pulsed magnetic field to a particular body area, magnetic stimulation induces a flow of electric current that can stimulate neurons. The neuronal stimulus in turn induces a corresponding body response, notably a muscle contraction. This review summarizes available studies employing magnetic stimulation in clinical applications and gives special attention to the results of existing studies using HITS® magnetic technology.
