No, none. The SIS machines are fast and simple to apply without any medical expertise.
The SIS equipment is designed for both clinic and home use.
We also give full and ongoing support with the SIS equipment for correct and optimal application.

Each infection and treatment course will be unique.
Please see our RESULTS >
Yes, with successful results that resulted in the recovery of the patients. In these cases, within major and regional hospitals an M200 [precursor of M250] model SIS machine and electrode system was used at the insistence of the patients and/or their families, when standard treatments with intravenous and oral antibiotics were not giving the necessary results for these patients’ acute or emergency infections.
The W200 [precursor of W250] model SIS machine has been used within major and regional hospitals for large and very large antibiotic resistant infected nosocomial and post-surgical wounds, and has saved leg amputations.
The hospital doctors were aware of and included the applications of the SIS equipment in their clinical notes.
Additionally, no adverse affects were reported by the hospital doctors or nurses.
Yes, the Output Current of the M250 model can be programmed for the treatment of yeast and fungal infections.
No. The SIS machines are not appropriate for the treatment of parasite infections.
No. None of the side effects known to be caused by antibiotics and antiviral drugs have ever been reported.
Additionally, none of the side effects of antibiotics were reported by the electromedicine pioneer, American orthopaedic surgeon Robert O Becker (1923-2008), nor by his research associates during their many hospital applications of silver-nylon cloth electrode iontophoresis or low intensity direct current (LIDC) treatments of infections and for tissue healing.
Please read HOW IT WORKS >
Yes. We provide full and ongoing support to the original-purchase user of SIS equipment for its correct and optimal application.
We will always communicate promptly, and with as much help and detail as necessary for correct and optimal application of the SIS machines.
No. “zappers”, Rife machines, and bioresonance devices are all electromagnetic frequency generating devices.
SIS machines models M250/M250MA/W250 are low intensity (amperage) direct current (DC) devices. They have no Output Current or Output Voltage frequency, as they are DC devices.
The SIS machines models M250/M250MA/W250 have no functional or therapeutic similarity to any frequency generating device.

Cancer treatment electromedine: As a manufacturer of medical and (laboratory) research equipment, we do not give medical advice. Here is our general reply to this question for informational purposes only:
A ‘neoplasm’ is the medical term for what is commonly called a “malignancy” or “cancer”. Neoplasms are occurrences that form over time, as a result of many very complex and simultaneous processes.
The SIS machines are not designed nor claimed to be effective when applied alone in the treatment of neoplasms.
Many neoplasms are known to be caused by infections, in addition to many other simultaneous co-factors. These include but are not limited to the more well-known neoplasms that can develop in the liver, stomach, and cervix in females. There is gradually accumulating evidence that neoplasms in other organs of the body might also be caused by infections, especially by viruses. In so far as neoplasms have infectious agent co-factor causes, then the M250/M250MA models can be applied to treat these infections. However, as explained above, most neoplasms have multiple, simultaneous co-factor causes.
The M250MA model SIS machine can also be applied to stimulate normal programmed cell death (‘apoptosis’) within neoplasms.
The WMcAMP stimulator also has apoptosis and tissue normalizing effects.
We explicitly disclaim that the SIS machines can be applied alone to treat neoplasms.
Typically, for a severe or acute infection, with (approaching) 24/7 continuous use, from extensive clinical experience replacement of the (+)electrode every 12-48 hours, and replacement of the (-)(‘Return’)electrode every 24-48 hours is optimal, depending on anatomical location and other factors such as ambient temperature that will affect sweating.
More information and instructions for application of the SIS electrodes are included in the operating manuals of the SIS machines, and on the Instructions For Use card included in each SIS electrode pack.
No, the SIS electrodes are not ‘sticky’. They need to be held onto the body using standard adhesive medical fixation tape or other types of physiotherapy or injury rehabilitation tape. Bandages or other emergency means can also be used if necessary.
A 10 meter roll of Fixomull® Transparent or Stretch fixation tape is included in the Treatment Pack delivered with each SIS machine.
Replacement fixation tape is a generally available, non-prescription item from any chemist or pharmacy, and from our SHOP >
No. The SIS machines should not be compared to commonly available microcurrent stimulators, either electronically or therapeutically.
WARNING: GENERALLY AVAILABLE MICROCURRENT STIMULATORS, AND OTHER ELECTRO-STIMULATORS THAT HAVE ELECTRONIC SPECIFICATIONS THAT INCLUDE THE MILLIAMPERE (mA) RANGE OF OUTPUT CURRENT, ARE NOT CAPABLE OF THE ELECTRONIC REQUIREMENTS OF ULTRA-LOW AMPERAGE (LOW INTENSITY DIRECT CURRENT) FOR SILVER IONTOPHORESIS USING SILVER-NYLON CLOTH AS ELECTRO-CHEMICAL ANODE AND CATHODE, AND SHOULD NOT BE USED WITH THE SIS ELECTRODES IN CASE OF UNPREDICTABLE TISSUE DAMAGE, BURNS AND OTHER ADVERSE BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS.
The SIS machines are direct current (DC) devices that are necessary for silver iontophoresis; they have no output stimulation frequency. Most currently available microcurrent stimulators are not DC devices: they are frequency emitting, pulsed waveform devices.
For silver iontophoresis using silver-nylon cloth electrodes as the +ve and -ve electro-chemical anode and cathode for the release of silver cations (Ag+s), extremely stable ultra-low amperage (low intensity/amperage) DC Output Current with nano-ampere accuracy is required, which is far beyond the capabilities of generally available microcurrent stimulators.
Additionally, the M250, M250MA and W250 model SIS machines are sophisticated real-time monitoring devices of the SIS silver-nylon cloth electrode↔skin contact, which is absolutely necessary for silver iontophoresis to occur at these very low electric currents.
Yes, very easily with the M250 and M250MA models. The SIS machine harness (electrode cable) can be easily connected to widely available pure silver rods made specifically for colloidal silver production, using the set of Alligator Clip Cable Adaptors supplied with each SIS machine M250/M250MA model. The SIS electrodes can also be used.
