I have several " Rife " devices, including a Pro Wave Model 101, GB4000,
IR/BPT-500, 8CE EM+, and an F125 generator. The only review I have
written so far is on the Model 101 so I will post it below. I would
strongly advise against the IR/BPT-500 since I have had mine almost a
year now and have not been able to really use or test it as it has
never run right. I have spent over $400 in returning it 4 times for
repairs. It is now back in Florida being repaired for the last time
since the year warranty expires soon. If the repair works this time
then I will change my opinion but I will wait until I write my final
review. Had I known better I would have gotten the PERL instead. My
favorite so far is the 8CE EM+ from Bruce Stenulson. I have used it
successfully for several problems and am treating my wife's breast
cancer with it. There are pro's and con's for all my devices (except
for the IR/BPT-500) but if I could only have one it would be the 8CE
EM+. Here is my review of the Pro Wave Model 101 which I wrote over a
year ago:

Since I have found very little info on the ProWave Model 101, I am
taking the time to add my input since I purchased one anyway. I am
not connected in any way to a seller of the device. I purchased my
unit after meeting the owner of the company which manufactures the
Model 101 while on a Caribbean cruise this past summer.

The " Model 101 Energy System " came with the following contents: (1)
Pro Wave Model 101 cordless instrument, (1) battery charger/power
supply cord, (2) stainless steel hand cylinder electrodes, (2) 72 "
connecting wires for hand electrodes, (2) stainless steel disk
electrodes with 72 " wires attached, (1) Tac Gel conductive adhesive,
(2) wrist band stainless steel electrodes with 72 " wires attached,
(1) white aloe conductive lotion, (8) flexible self adhesive
conductive electrodes (TENS type), (2) 72 " wires with pin plug and
1/8th " banana plug for flexible conductive electrodes, (1) operating
manual, and (1) " Get Started Today " instruction video. All of this
came with a very nice soft leather carry bag which nicely carries all
of the pieces in various compartments and pockets.

The operating manual is very well written and makes using the device
so very simple. If that wasn't enough, the video shows how to do
everything.

The Model 101 comes with a built in rechargeable NiMH battery that
enables the unit to be run for about 6 hours without being plugged
into to a socket. Output is .1 to 28 volts. Frequency range is
0.42Hz to 200KHz, channel range from .5Hz to 21,275Hz (this is from
the manual, don't ask me to explain).

Programs: There are 181 individual frequency " channels " in memory
from the manufacturer. There are 325 programs available, each
capable of storing 64 individual channels. There are 10 user
accessible programs capable of storing 32 individual channels. You
cannot enter any other frequencies that are not already programmed
in. This is the major drawback of the device, in my opinion.

One nice feature is a gentle " ramp up " (soft start) which is
basically 3 seconds at the start of each channel to eliminate the
shock sensation. This is really nice especially at the lower
frequencies that tend to jolt you a little as they change.

Another nice feature is something they call " bio-impedance " matching
that supposedly matches your skin resistance to the output of the
device to deliver a strong and effective signal that is comfortable
as well. There are lights on the console that let you know if
electrode contact is poor, good, or non-existent.

There is a signal that beeps which anything happens (frequency
changes, program ends, etc). This beep can be silenced or raised if
desired.

The display shows the program running, total minutes remaining,
channel number (not the frequency), time remaining on the channel,
energy level (% of maximum output), and the name of the program which
is running.

This device is about as user friendly as it can get. It is designed
so that even if you lost the manual, you could use the device by
simply scrolling forwards or backwards through the programs and
pressing a couple of buttons. The " quick start menu " and " advanced
set up " allow anyone to start and run a program without being a
rocket scientist or knowing anything about frequency or all the other
confusing Rife nomenclature.

So far, I have found the pre-installed programs for the 325
conditions, pretty close to the CAFL. There have been a few that I
wanted to change, so I simply programmed my own by simply adding the
frequencies to those already in the device.

I have been very impressed with the quality of the materials and the
construction of this device. I think the console and the electrodes
could really take a beating and still function (but don't test that
fact!) Since I met the owner of the company, I was able to use my
Internet sleuthing skills and learned that his company has a solid
background in the medical electronics field. Obviously, this device
is a " silent " part of their business due to obvious reasons (FDA,
pharmaceutical companies, etc). No, I will not reveal any more info
about the company as I want the manufacture of this device to
continue so that as many people as possible can benefit from this
technology.

I would highly recommend this device to anyone who wants a simple to
use pad device. My wife and I have both used this to stop the flu
after one day. Other than that, we have been healthy and haven't had
to test it further. I will admit, that after I bought the device, I
researched pad devices a lot further and learned what features I,
personally, would prefer in a pad device. I am a little technically
savvy and am comfortable around computers so I would prefer a deice
which would allow me to program a lot more frequencies than the Model
101 has pre-installed. I would also prefer to do a few more things
like run more than one frequency at a time, sweep, etc. For these
reasons I would prefer a GB-4000. Now, if you could combine the
features of the Model 101 with the GB-4000, you would have, in my
opinion, the best pad device. Even though the GB-4000 does not
appear to be too really difficult to learn how to use, I think a lot
of people would prefer the ease, simplicity and effectiveness of the
Model 101. I can envision a lot of people who would simply prefer to
scroll through a list of programs, (# 379- Shingles, for example),
press two buttons, sit back and be " Rifed " . I know my wife would
prefer the Model 101 but perhaps I will save my money and get myself
a GB-4000 to keep at the office.

Of course my dream Rife machine is a Plasma device, but I am waiting
to see the results of my wife's mamogram. Then, I will determine if
the expense of one of the two Plasma devices I am considering is
warranted.

Finally, the ProWave Model 101 is expensive, around $2,400, but a lot
of similar devices are in the same price range. Yes, I know a signal
generator such as the F125 is a lot less expensive, but many people
who want to make use of Rife/Crane pad technology want something that
is easy to use. Many are intimidated by having to program, either
manually by punching in frequencies, or by computer download. There
is definitely a niche for the Model 101. To get one, do a Google
search.

Hope this helps

Mike

Hi, I'm new to the list trying to learn more about Rife machines and
particularly the one I have access to through a family member who had
connections in the alternative health field some years back. She bought it
second hand. The Rife is a wright laboratories Rife machine B-27. Does anyone
know about this machine? Is it safe? Built well? Thanks so much, Sal

Polly, If I were buying a machine:

Only pad or contact machine I would even consider is the GB4000 with
amplifier. Very wide range, programmable, good machine.

Only plasma Bare-Rife machine would be the PERL from Resonant Light in
Canada. Expensive, but sometimes you DO get what you pay for.

Many vendors with EMEM machines, Mike T, RifeLabs, Bruce S, Dr Loyd..
many vendors. $700 to $2500 ?? All depends on what's used for the
frequency generator.

And, there is the new P3 machine from Jimmie Holman, looks impressive
according to what Jimmie says about the clinical studies in Europe.
Expensive.

Mike, Thanks for the information. I googled the GB 4000 and the 8CE
EM+, that one looks scary. I am not very technical, and so I think
that eliminates the 8CE EM+ for me.

The GB4000 looks similar to the Pro Wave in ease of use. I found one
offered by EMR Labs, GB4000 " Blue " $1795, optional wrist bands and
poly pads for additional $99 (would I need these?) and SR-4 " BLUE " 30
MHz 10-Watt Amplifier ($595 would I need that?) When you add these
all up it comes to the same price as the Pro Wave.

Can you go into a little more detail, did you feel that the GB 4000
is a better machine just not as easy to use as the Pro Wave? For a
newbie are there programs in it for say arthritis, diverticulitis,
cancer... or do you have to program them in (web site says 871 unique
frequency channels).

I think I am digging myself deeper in confusion.

If i may add my two cents ...if you are not an apartment dweller you may want to
consider a radiant device rather than a contact
device. It has been stated that contact devices may offer less effectiveness
than radiant due to the paths of resistance. There are
a couple of good device though that offer both in their setup and that would be
a good deal as both have their place but if money is
a problem and you can only choose one....I would suggest radiant. Many times you
can use the freq generator in radiant device in the
contact mode anyway so you'll still be killing two birds with one stone ( no pun
intended) good luck in your choices.

See www.rifevideos.com and read articles. Rife switched to modified function
generators for a reason. Power is increased with an amplifier on a GB2000. Used
machines are often sold on EBAY at a good discount.

Dave,

Do you have any more information on the P3?

Hi, Gail..

The P3 is the commercial version of Jimmie's P3Pro, and I believe that
the P3Pro is the machine which has been doing so very well in clinical
testing in Europe. Eventually maybe they'll give us actual results - but
I recall that nobody, virtually nobody, gives out actual data, even some
who say it's all available but somehow is never really there. (Mike T
seems to be the only one who sometimes gives out actual experimental
results with his machines.)

Website: http://www.pulsedtech.com/

The P3 must be used with Jimmie's PFG generator, and connected to a
Windows computer to set frequencies. It comes out to an expensive
package, but reports I hear is that it works very well indeed. Be aware
that Jimmie's research seems to be focussing on higher frequencies more
than the standard CAFL set (the PFG does those too..) And, I'm hearing
from others that higher frequencies seem to work better (as example 10x
the CAFL frequencies as an experiment..) and this makes lots of sense to me.

I don't have pricing, but I believe the P3 and PFG package less a
computer (laptops work fine, must either have a parallel port or a
pcmcia to parallel adapter - but I'll bet a USB version will be out
soon) comes out to $5000 and possibly closer to ($6000 ?) Support is
also excellent, from what I hear.. No more waiting for months to get a
machine repaired.

Packaging - don't really care for the P3 packaging, but as a builder,
packaging has been the greatest single problem I've had in building
instruments of all kinds over the years. Wish it were in my price range!!

Dave,

Thank you for the information and link. It looks completely different from the
PPET, which at one time I had considered purchasing. I ultimately decided on a
different setup though, because I wanted to use the A/R F165, which could not be
used with that system.

Many of the programs I use are in the higher frequency ranges, and I have found
them to be extremely effective if you have the right frequency, or combination
of frequencies. Same with the lower ranges.

Cost is higher than some units, but equal to others, so would be a good option
to consider for those purchasing in that price range. Considering the source,
I'm sure it is a nice setup.
