About Us

While the OSKA Pulse is manufactured in the USA, the science and technology underpinning the development of OSKA Pulse is all done here at Medic Technology International Pty. Ltd. in Perth, Western Australia. We are humbled and proud that the OSKA Pulse is registered as a Medical Device with the FDA (USA) and TGA (Aust), and now sold world wide.


Accidentally falling four metres, Michael Hawker, an electronics technician with experience in medical equipment, fractured several ribs and all the small bones in his wrist. His surgeon expressed the importance of exercise once the pins and plaster cast had been removed, stressing how vital activity is to the natural healing processes. He explained that exercise produces an electrical potential across cell membrane, allowing the exchange of essential ions necessary for cellular regeneration. Pain resulting from injury or degenerative conditions may inhibit physical exercise, slowing the healing process.

Michael remembered the surgeon’s explanation when he learned of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Technology (PEMFT) three years later and decided to deeply research the area. He put together a team that included biomedical scientist Jayde Riggins, electronics and software engineer Ian Rumble, and his wife Shirley Hawker, an ex-nurse.

A prototype was developed and taken to the USA for evaluation. Twelve months later, OSKA Pulse was released. It’s now manufactured and distributed in the USA and Australia with agencies in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Hong Kong and India.
