Welcome to The Arthur Pilla Research Foundation, a non-profit 501 (c) (3) public corporation dedicated to ensuring the continuation of Dr. Pilla’s life’s work:  The study of the therapeutic effect of Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) on healing, wound repair, pain management, and more.  His discoveries of the effects of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) on biological systems have led to concrete clinical use in many areas including orthopedics, reconstructive plastic surgery and even veterinary use.    The incredibly important work of Dr. Pilla will continue thanks to this Foundation.  Please consider donating today!

We are thrilled to announce the creation of the Arthur A Pilla Young Scientist Award, sponsored by the newly formed BioEM Society!    This award recognizes an outstanding young Ph.D. research presentation at the Annual joint BioEM meeting. The first Award was presented at the BioEM2016 meeting in Ghent, Belgium in June 2016.  In the future, we envision both Scholarships and Grants to be established in order to help ongoing studies in the field of Electro-therapeutics, specifically the healing effects of PEMF on biological systems.  This yearly Award will be dedicated to Dr. Arthur A. Pilla’s Memory as one of the earliest members of BEMS, an International Society with members from over 40 countries.

Dr. Pilla dedicated his life to researching the biological effects of electromagnetic fields and how he could help mankind in healing all kinds of ailments in numerous areas of medicine. Dr. Pilla invented the first FDA-approved bone healing device using Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF).  This device was designed to help hard to heal fractures, or nonunions.  His discoveries led to the creation of an entire industry in Electro-therapeutics. Studies on Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) to Alzheimer’s would benefit from more research using PEMF.   PEMF can provide pain relief and promote healing by reducing inflammation and thereby decreasing the time it takes to heal and decreasing the need for prescription pain medication.  Let the momentum continue as we help fund promising research of young scientists all over the world study the biological effects of PEMF and help them make their own discoveries while referencing the many findings Dr. Pilla has published during his lifetime. Together, we can continue what Dr. Pilla dedicated his entire career to:  Healing with the use of PEMF.

The Arthur Pilla Research Foundation was established by Dr. Pilla’s family in order to ensure the completion of any unfinished research and to ensure the continuation of current research in the field of Electro-therapeutics.

  1. Bonjour,

    Naturaliste, j’effectue des recherches sur les processus évolutifs complexes et suggére la création d’un laboratoire sur les basses énergies biologiques dans le cadre d’un pôle en évolution biologique et transformations de la civilisation à Bességes (France) comme le l’ai préconisé dans mes publications sur le site :
