What is Bioelectromagnetics ?

The International scientific community has adopted the term “Bioelectromagnetics” to describe the science, which deals with the electric and magnetic fields which are generated by living systems (“bioelectromagnetism”), as well as the biological effects of the fields emitted by man-made or natural sources. It covers the frequency range from 0 Hz (static fields) to 300 GHz (the transition to infrared).

Bioelectromagnetics is a multi disciplinary science comprising:

  • Biological effects and potential detrimental health effects
  • Interaction mechanisms
  • Biomedical use
  • Risk communication

To explore these areas, several approaches are undertaken:

  • Theoretical studies
  • Field measurements for dosimetry and exposure assessment
  • In vivo and in vitro experiments
  • Human laboratory studies
  • Epidemiological studies
