ONDAMED® is a battery-powered biofeedback device that a medical practitioner uses to determine which frequencies of sound, as well as the accompanying weak pulsed electromagnetic fields, cause a response in a patient's autonomic nervous system. Temporary stimulation by these frequencies, combined with the patient's cognitive and non-cognitive participation, promotes relaxation, muscle re-education, and various other prescription uses, such as pain relief, stress relief linked with reduction of inflammation and potential improvement of the immune system.
How does ONDAMED® work
ONDAMED® works by using mild sound and accompanying magnetic pulses to stimulate the body at various frequencies. A medical practitioner monitors the response of the autonomic nervous system to these frequencies by noting changes in the pulse and informs the patient of findings, thus providing the information needed for biofeedback to occur. The identified stimulating sound and magnetic frequencies are then temporarily applied to identified areas while the patient relearns how to be in a healthier state.
Biofeedback works because the body is a complex adaptive system that processes information about itself and its circumstances in various networks and feedback loops in order to maintain stability and health. Most of these networks and feedback loops can respond to a stimulus without engaging the conscious mind. In doing this, the body relies heavily on the autonomic nervous system, a system which was once thought to be totally independent of the conscious mind. The autonomic nervous system is now known to be affected by the conscious mind and can even be controlled by it through a process know as biofeedback. The mechanisms by which biofeedback works are not completely understood but it is well documented that biofeedback is safe and effective.

"My husband used OndaMed treatment to help him quit smoking. He received 5-7 treatments and was able to quit smoking. He used to smoke for 30+ years 15-20 cigarettes a day. After this treatment he experienced minimal discomfort related to withdraw symptoms. His psychological dependence on nicotine was reduced after the first 3-4 treatments, but he did have some difficulties adjusting to changes in social settings, but it was manageable. He told me that he didn't have any urge to smoke even when he was driving the car with the person smoking. His personality seems to be changed, too- always being a very high-strung person with type A+ personality, he became much calmer, less irritable, and more content. During the treatment with OndaMed he followed diet prescribed by Dr. Kipnis and lost 10 lbs.
Overall, it has been a great experience for him with great results! We are very grateful to Dr. Kipnis suggesting and administering this treatment."
Dear Dr. Kipnis:
I'm very thankful that the Ondamed machine has helped me a great deal. You made me put a smile back on my face once I left your office. Continue helping your patients in need. Keep up the good work!!!
