However, more frequent charging of the battery will help to improve total battery life.
4. How many sessions can run for full battery?
We know many situations may affect the battery capacity & performance such as the temperature and frequency of usage, below is for your reference:
- 90 minutes Version should run around 12~15 times until battery starts signalling low battery

About the Oska Technology
1. I use a magnetic bracelet. (wrist band). How is Oska Pulse different？
- Your magnetic bracelet uses a static magnet, which the body gets used to and becomes ineffective. Oska Pulse uses a series of modulated pulsed electromagnetic energy fields that create a more profound action in the body. These energy fields are designed to resonate with (or mimic) the same electrical potentials (energy) generated by cellular activity in your body that happens naturally during physical activity.
2. Is Oska Pulse another TENS device?
- NO....definitely not. TENS, is a pain blocker, needs to be attached to the skin, needs you to adjust signal and put a painful signal into a painful area. TENS also requires you to continue to purchase pads and gels. Oska Pulse uses PEMF Technology which operates without an electrical current and rather with a field of energy, at the cellular level to address the root cause of pain. There are not pads or electrodes and the device does not need to be in contact with the skin. Oska Pulse is pre-programmed to operate at the same frequency as your body and does not cause additional pain, Furthermore, once purchased there are no required reoccurring costs.
3. How do I know if the Oska is working, besides the flashing light?
- Our body cannot “feel” any magnetic field although our Earth already has a North-South pole magnetic field. However nowadays our smartphone technology usually come with EMF detection so you may try to download these apps to see if your Oska is emitting EMF. In a quiet room turn your device on and place near your ear, you will hear a humming noise when the device is powered on indicating it is working.
4. Oska’s PEMF Frequency? Intensity? Gauss?
- Unfortunately these are misleading information. We know the PEMF protocol design determines how effective the device is in restoring your body’s cellular electrical potential and promote natural recovery. Oska Pulse is clinically proven for Significant Pain Reduction. Oska Pulse is a FDA Registered Class 1 Medical Device, CE Class IIA and TGA Class IIA Medical Device.
