“I believe that PEMF therapy can help me but how do I choose the right PEMF mat system? I don’t know where to start.”
This is something we frequently hear at Samuel Maddock Health. We hear from those who have already spent many hours searching the internet and have become confused and frustrated by the daunting amount of information that they are faced with. We hear from those who are worried about buying the wrong system for their needs and wasting their hard earned money. And we hear from those who are worried that the company they buy from won’t have enough knowledge and experience to help them experience the benefits of PEMF therapy.
So, to make the process much simpler, we have put our many years of experience with testing and researching different PEMF systems into creating a guide that can help. Below you will find all the information you require to help you place the best PEMF mat order for your needs.
If you are considering buying a Bemer mat system you should definitely read this guide first. In this guide you will discover:
- What does Bemer stand for? – And why the new iMRS Prime system is superior in terms of PEMF frequency, intensity and waveform.
- What is a Bemer mat? – And why the new iMRS Prime surpasses this device.
- Is the Bemer fda approved? – And why the iMRS family of systems was the first company worldwide to fulfil all country regulatory requirements relating to the supply of PEMF therapy devices for home use, including FDA approval.
- Does Bemer therapy work? – And why the new iMRS Prime system is more effective, thanks to featuring both the research backed sawtooth and square PEMF waveforms.
- Is Bemer therapy safe? – And why the iMRS family of PEMF systems were the first to satisfy the very strict regulatory standards of Health Canada.
- How much is a Bemer mat? – And why the new iMRS Prime is not only a greater value PEMF device due to the vast amount of features and unique optional extras, but also that it is actually cheaper during the month of September due to our outstanding special offer. Find out more here.
- How much does it cost to become a Bemer distributor? – And why becoming an iMRS Prime distributor is a better option for creating that much needed second income (or even full time business).
- Do Bemer mats work? – And why the new iMRS Prime can also help improve microcirculation, as well as a host of other benefits.
- What does a Bemer machine do? – And if you desire the many benefits derived from PEMF frequencies below 10Hz, you should choose the new iMRS Prime. (The iMRS Prime has a frequency range of 0.5Hz-25Hz).
- How does a Bemer work? – And why the new iMRS Prime can improve your circulation too! In fact, with the new Hybrid PEMF and Far-Infrared (FIR) applicator mat, and the Exagon Sense (HRV biofeedback and SP02 oximeter) accessory, the iMRS Prime can measure your body’s current level of tension and stress, plus the current level of blood oxygenation in your red blood cells (vital for good circulation), and then show you how dramatic the microcirculation benefit can be as your stress levels drop and your blood oxygen levels optimise, all thanks to the unique combination of PEMF and FIR therapy – Only from the new iMRS Prime.
PEMF Mat Buying Guide – What You Need To Know
In case you are new to the many benefits of PEMF therapy, we will start with the basics. We will answer the following questions ‘What are PEMF devices?’, ‘What does pemf help?’, and ‘How does PEMF work?’. We will then cover which PEMF mat system is best to choose, and why we recommend the new iMRS Prime PEMF system for anyone who is considering buying a PEMF device for home use.
What are PEMF Devices?
There are many PEMF mat devices available today, which range from very low frequency and intensity PEMF models, to very high powered systems. We have researched and tested a great many of these PEMF systems and without doubt, the new iMRS Prime system is our favourite.
If you believe in working with your body to help it heal, we think you will love the iMRS Prime too. More on this later.
What does PEMF help?
There are many benefits to using PEMF therapy. These include pain relief, better sleep, reduced inflammation, faster healing, more energy and less stress to name a few. PEMF therapy can also play a supportive role in a number of health conditions such as arthritis, ms, fibromyalgia and Parkinson’s.
How does PEMF work?
Our cells are the building blocks of life, and the health of every one of us is governed by the health of our cells. There is simply no escaping this. But our cells are constantly subjected to stress, be it physical, emotional or energetic, which pushes them towards a state of dysfunction which ultimately can result in disease.
Keeping the trillions of cells within our body in a healthy state is not a passive process and we cannot take this for granted. Our cells need an active intervention to keep them healthy.
They require energy!
PEMF therapy can do just this and when delivered at the right frequency and intensity, PEMF can play a hugely significant role in keeping our cells healthy.
How does this work?
When electromagnetic impulses of the appropriate frequency are applied to our cells, this can result in a process called cellular resonance (a vibration of the cell occurring at its maximum amplitude). When this occurs, the resulting stimulation of the cell’s membrane receptors activates a variety of functions within the cell, accounting for the widespread benefits of PEMF therapy.
Research has shown there is a ‘biological window’ of very low level electromagnetic frequency and intensity values which produce this effect within the cell. (Adey 1979).
It is perhaps not surprising that these values are therefore replicated in the technology of the most effective PEMF mat devices available for home use. Outside of these PEMF values, not only are the beneficial effects downgraded, they can actually become harmful. This fact is most easily demonstrated today in our modern electronic environment, where we are seeing mounting evidence of the negative health effects of mobile phones, smart meters and WiFi.
Does PEMF really work?
There has been a significant amount of research carried out into the effectiveness of PEMF therapy. There are over three thousand published research papers and many double blind randomised controlled trials which highlight the positive effects of PEMF therapy across all frequency and intensity ranges, and for various diseases.
Research also shows that the applied frequency, intensity and type of PEMF waveform are all crucial when it comes to an effective response. This is why PEMF therapy is used medically over a large range of intensity and frequency levels.
There has been very interesting low level PEMF research published, which has demonstrated a positive response in a number of health conditions including osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, ms, and Parkinson’s disease in particular. (Sandyk 1997).
Which PEMF mat device is best?
So, now we have established why we should use PEMF therapy, which device should we choose?
There are a number of PEMF mat devices available today. To decide which device is best for your needs, you first need to consider what you want to achieve from PEMF therapy. To help our clients decide, we ask them to consider the following questions:
- Do you want a PEMF system for daily home use?
Low frequency and intensity PEMF is best for daily home use.
One of the main reasons I personally use Swiss Bionic Solutions’ PEMF mat systems, and train other practitioners and clients to use their technology, is because of the PEMF parameters they use, which are ideally suited for everyday use.
Research (Adey and Bawin 1976) has repeatedly shown that the cells in our body respond favourably to frequencies up to 30Hz. Research has also shown that as little as 50Hz can be harmful to our cells.
With regards to intensity, there is a lot of research that demonstrates that combined low frequency and intensity PEMF therapy can be extremely beneficial. NASA’s in depth PEMF study (2003) for example, identified best results between 1-20 microtesla, which is a very low level of PEMF intensity.
- Do you want to use PEMF to help rediscover vitality and prevent issues from arising?
For longer term preventative use, we recommend the iMRS Prime system. The iMRS Prime is based on the long established reputation of the iMRS series of PEMF systems, and adds many new exciting features to this platform. The iMRS Prime uses low level PEMF therapy which works with the body’s inherent ability to heal itself, there are many long term benefits to using low level PEMF therapy. The iMRS Prime system is ideally designed for long term daily use, and is also especially effective where symptoms are related to stress, anxiety and long term overstimulation.
- Do you believe in working with your body in order to help it heal itself?
If you believe that the body is capable of healing itself and wish to work with your body for lasting, long term benefits, you should give serious consideration to low level PEMF devices. We have tested the vast majority of these systems and recommend the new iMRS Prime system as, in our opinion, it provides the best all round PEMF therapy offering.
- Do you want to address a specific condition with a course of PEMF treatment?
If you are looking to override your body’s natural processes in order to help with high level pain management or a specific disease process, you may want to consider higher level PEMF therapy systems. It is important to best in mind that these systems are often not suitable for daily home use and need to be carefully applied with the guidance of a practitioner.
Care with higher frequency systems
There can be instances where higher frequency PEMF application is indicated in a disease specific approach. However, research has demonstrated that the biological effects on the cell are much harder to predict, and the chances of over stimulation are greater, when higher frequency PEMF ranges (above 30Hz) are combined with higher intensity levels. The work of Professor Martin Pall at Washington State University, amongst others, has highlighted the negative effects of this combination and research into this area continues.
PEMF high vs low?
We have purchased, researched and tested various types of PEMF mat systems over the years. Both high and low powered systems, when used correctly, can very effective. The difference between low and high level PEMF therapy is akin to the homeopathic approach vs the symptom orientated allopathic medical approach. We specialise in low level PEMF therapy devices and we help our clients experience the many benefits of PEMF therapy from the comfort of their own homes. And if they need further support, we offer specialised PEMF consultations from our clinic in central Bath, UK.
- Do you want to buy from a manufacturer with a long and trusted track record?
We are now seeing increasing levels of regulation and scrutiny coming in across the globe for all PEMF device manufacturers, which is a very good thing. PEMF companies are now being asked to provide substantial proof that their systems are effective and safe for the intended use being marketed. This will likely have a great bearing on the claims that some PEMF device manufacturers are able to make in the future. It will also ensure that only the most reputable manufacturers remain in business.
- Do you want support and expert advice from a health care practitioner?
At Samuel Maddock Health, we have the expertise and experience to help you. Samuel Maddock is an award winning osteopath, functional medicine practitioner, and experienced PEMF therapy practitioner. Samuel has helped over 10,000 clients to resolve their symptoms over his career, and has worked with many hundreds of PEMF therapy clients from all around the world.
- Do you want to travel with your PEMF system?
For our clients that are looking for all the benefits of low level PEMF therapy on the go, we often suggest the Omnium1 2.0 PEMF device. The Omnium1 comes from the same iMRS family of PEMF devices as the iMRS Prime, but can be easily transported whenever and wherever you need to go.
Which PEMF Mat Device should you buy?
Our chosen PEMF Mat system is the iMRS Prime Device. Read on to find out why, and how it compares to the other PEMF systems that are available.
What is the iMRS Prime System?
The iMRS Prime is the latest version of the world leading iMRS PEMF device for home use. It has taken PEMF Therapy to a whole new level, with new PEMF settings, applicators, biofeedback, and even integrated Far-Infrared technology. The iMRS Prime is the world’s first “six dimensional wellness system”. To find out more or to place your order, please contact us today.
PEMF device reviews and comparisons
iMRS Prime vs Bemer
Many of our clients ask if they should choose the iMRS Prime (also known as the iMRS 2000, or iMRS 2000 Prime) or Bemer systems. They are similarly priced PEMF mat systems but you simply get much more for your money with the iMRS Prime system.
Here are four of the extras that you get:
1. More effective waveforms
Sawtooth and Square wave as standard for the iMRS Prime vs Sinusoidal for Bemer. BUT if you decide you want to use another waveform, the iMRS Prime is capable of generating any PEMF waveform you desire. (Advanced training and certification required).
2. More frequencies
Four frequency sets as standard with the iMRS Prime (0.5Hz, 3Hz, 5.5Hz, 15Hz) all within the optimum biological window for the cell of 30 Hz, vs Two for Bemer at 10 and 33 Hz. BUT again, you can create any frequency range you desire with the iMRS Prime thanks to the dedicated professional signal generator that’s included. (Advanced training and certification required).
3. More intensity range
The iMRS Prime offers both a higher and also a much lower intensity option than the Bemer system. The lower intensity iMRS Prime settings are ideal for sensitive individuals, and fall in line with the remarkably effective picotesla PEMF intensity values.
4. Additional optional extras
The list of optional and upgradeable extras for the iMRS Prime is long. And this again sets the iMRS Prime apart as the best PEMF mat system available. From the Exagon Sense biofeedback and Exagon Brain brainwave entrainment accessories to the iMRS Prime iGUIDE database, you are spoilt for choice with this system. Add to that, brand new PEMF applicators and even a new hybrid mat featuring Far Infrared (FIR) technology, and choosing the iMRS Prime system becomes even easier.
The iMRS Prime simply offers more value for money and more potential benefit than the Bemer system. For further details regarding the iMRS Prime system and our special offers please visit this page.
Why you should buy the new iMRS Prime and not Bemer
What does Bemer stand for?
Bemer stands for Bio-Electro-Magnetic-Energy-Regulation. It is one of many PEMF mat devices available for home use. The BEMER system works by using low frequency and intensity PEMF therapy. This is delivered using their patented PEMF waveform. The BEMER PEMF waveform patents are a key feature of their marketing approach, and a patented waveform certainly sounds impressive. You may assume that must mean it is a superior waveform to other competitor waveforms. This is simply not the case.
The BEMER waveform is a modified sinusoidal wave which features additional frequency over-waves. This makes it similar in appearance to a sawtooth waveform, but without the sharp rise and fall time of the sawtooth wave, which has been shown to provide the greatest physiological stimulus to the cells in the body. In additional to this, T J Goodwin’s four year independent research for NASA (2003) found the sinus waveform to be much less effective than a PEMF square waveform. This makes BEMER’s lack of a square waveform a significant omission if you are looking for the most effective PEMF waveforms for home use.
I have researched and tested all the available PEMF mats for home use during the past decade, and I have witnessed some very surprising results. As an osteopath, functional medicine and PEMF therapy practitioner, having helped over 10,000 patients to improve their health, my chosen symptom is the new iMRS Prime PEMF system. In fact, I believe that the new iMRS Prime is the best kept secret in the PEMF industry. That is of course changing on a daily basis, as more and more people discover the outstanding benefits of the new iMRS Prime PEMF system. Contact us to find out more today.
In terms of sales numbers and popularity, the iMRS series and BEMER systems are clearly the leaders in PEMF therapy for home use. But they have chosen a different direction in order to develop and grow the awareness of their systems to consumers. This difference is apparent in the PEMF frequencies that the two systems use, the PEMF intensity range, waveform pattern, and even their approach to research.
The iMRS Prime Approach – PEMF therapy Innovation and Independent Research (not industry friendly research).
- PEMF Therapy Innovation:
The approach taken by Swiss Bionic Solutions over the past 25 years has been one of continued PEMF therapy innovation backed by independent research. Culminating in the release of the iMRS Prime in 2020, the iMRS series has evolved through seven generations of refinement and innovation. This approach has meant that the iMRS Prime stands alone as the only PEMF system for home use to combine research proven PEMF therapy, biofeedback therapy, and Far infrared (FIR) therapy together in one system. The iMRS Prime also features two independent research backed waveforms; The triple sawtooth, and the Square waveform.
- Sawtooth Waveform Independent Research:
The best known PEMF signal shape is the sawtooth waveform, first introduced by Dr Bassett in 1974. Through his research, Dr. Bassett observed that changes in the electromagnetic signal induce an electrical current within the tissue being treated, with the maximum current being induced when the signal changed most abruptly, (when the signal falls from its peak to its lowest value – known as the fall time). The piezoelectric current that is induced within bone as a result of this process, was demonstrated to accelerate the healing of bone tissue. As a result of Dr Bassett’s work, the sawtooth waveform has been FDA approved in the United States since 1979, for the treatment of non-union bone fractures, and also to aid in operations involving spinal fusion.
- Square Waveform Independent Research:
T J Goodwin’s four year independent research for NASA (2003) found the sinus waveform which is similar to that used in BEMER therapy, to be much less effective than a PEMF square waveform, which is a type of waveform used by the new iMRS Prime device.
- The iMRS Prime system also features automated frequency setting changes aligned with the variations of our circadian rhythm (iMRS Organ Clock). The importance of which is backed by Nobel Prize winning independent research https://www.nobelprize.org/uploads/2018/06/advanced-medicineprize2017.pdf
- The iMRS Prime frequency range between 0.5hz -25hz, also enable the independent research backed principles of brainwave entrainment. As part of this, the 1-8Hz range is especially important for the promotion of enhanced relaxation and sleep.
- The BEMER system by comparison, has an average frequency of 33Hz, with the lowest frequency harmonic at 10Hz. This range is simply too high for the promotion of enhanced relaxation and sleep.
- The iMRS Prime features ultra convenient fast start programs which now include the research backed ‘Solfeggio Frequencies’ https://www.relaxmelodies.com/blog/science-behind-solfeggio-frequencies/
- Independent Research
Swiss Bionic Solutions, the manufacturer of the iMRS series of systems is the only company worldwide to fulfil all country requirements relating to the supply of PEMF therapy devices for home use. In the USA the iMRS series is registered and regulated with the FDA. In Canada, the iMRS system is a class II approved medical device. Lastly, in Europe, the iMRS systems are certified as Class IIa-medical devices within the directive EEC 93/42.
With Health Canada taken as an example, the iMRS system was the first PEMF system for home use to be approved by the regulatory body. In order to achieve this, the manufacturer could only submit independent research evidence of the PEMF parameters used by the iMRS system. Industry friendly research would not have been sufficient for evidence of the claimed benefits.
iMRS Prime System Independent PEMF Research:
A brief overview of research supporting the low frequency and intensity PEMF parameters used by the new iMRS Prime:
There has been a significant amount of research carried out into the effectiveness of PEMF therapy, including a comprehensive four year study by NASA in 2003.
There are over three thousand published research papers, and many double blind randomised controlled trials which highlight the wide ranging health benefits of PEMF therapy.

What is a Bemer mat?
The Bemer mat is a low frequency and intensity PEMF device for home use. It is one of many PEMF mat devices available on the market today. I have spent the past decade researching and testing all of the PEMF mat devices available for home use (this is how I was able to write this guide!). What I’ve learned from my extensive research is that the most comparable PEMF mat device on the market actually surpasses the Bemer PEMF mat. This is the new iMRS Prime PEMF device.
Is the Bemer FDA approved?
According the their own website, the Bemer mat is an FDA Class II cleared consumer medical device, that is non-invasive and easy to use. But it is not the only fda approved PEMF mat device available.
Swiss Bionic Solutions, the manufacturer of the iMRS series of systems, including the new iMRS Prime system, is the only company worldwide to fulfil all country requirements relating to the supply of PEMF therapy devices for home use. In the USA the iMRS series is registered and regulated with the FDA. In Canada, the iMRS system is a class II approved medical device. Lastly, in Europe, the iMRS systems are certified as Class IIa-medical devices within the directive EEC 93/42.
With Health Canada taken as an example, the iMRS system was the first PEMF system for home use to be approved by the regulatory body. In order to achieve this, the manufacturer could only submit independent research evidence of the PEMF parameters used by the iMRS system. There are other prominent PEMF mat devices that have had a close association with industry friendly research and celebrity endorsement. This would not have been sufficient for evidence of the claimed benefits when applying to Health Canada for device approval.
Does Bemer therapy work?
BEMER therapy is a form of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy. It is delivered by BEMER PEMF mat devices and uses a specific combination of PEMF frequency and intensity. What most people don’t realise is that BEMER therapy in itself is not different to other forms of PEMF therapy, and there are many other PEMF devices available. BEMER is a good system and it does work. BUT… there is now an alternative that may be slightly lesser known but is better than the BEMER therapy system in terms of the range of frequency and intensity PEMF provided, the construction of the PEMF applicators, the optional accessories available, and much more. That system is the new iMRS Prime PEMF device.
How much is a Bemer mat?
The BEMER cost for their home edition PEMF mat system is $4990. This includes the B.BOX Professional control unit, B.BODY full body applicator, and B.SPOT applicators for local PEMF application.
By comparison, the new iMRS Prime Expert system is currently available for $4827, and includes the all new iMRS Prime control unit with IGUIDE, Fast Start Programs, Programme Settings and much more. It also includes three PEMF applicators for all areas of the body. The iMRS Prime Exagon Spot is designed to wrap around a joint concentrating the PEMF healing signal deep within the joint for improved repair and recovery. Unlike the BEMER, the iMRS Prime has available optional extras such as the Exagon Sense (Advanced Biofeedback HRV sensor) and Exagon Brain (Advanced Brainwave Entrainment and relaxation system). When we also add in the unique optional Hybrid Far-Infrared Body mat, no other PEMF system for home use can compete with the new iMRS Prime.
That’s not all. If you buy the iMRS Prime PEMF mat system through Samuel Maddock Health, you also receive a free PEMF Health training and support package, which teaches how to use PEMF therapy and how to adapt your diet, supplement use and lifestyle to get the most benefit from using the iMRS Prime system. This package is worth over $500 in value alone. To find out more, contact us today.
Is Bemer therapy safe?
Bemer therapy is a low frequency and intensity PEMF therapy for home use. It is one of many PEMF therapy devices available on the market today. These therapy devices are safe to use and there are minimal side effects to their use. The most comparable PEMF therapy device that actually surpasses the Bemer therapy system, is the new iMRS Prime PEMF device.
The iMRS Prime is also very safe to use. The manufacturer of the iMRS series of systems, (including the new iMRS Prime PEMF mat system), is the only manufacturer worldwide to satisfy all country requirements relating to the supply of PEMF devices for home use. In the United States, the iMRS series of systems are registered and regulated with the FDA. In Canada, the iMRS system is know as a class II approved medical device. Finally, in Europe, the iMRS systems are certified as Class IIa-medical devices within the directive EEC 93/42.
With Health Canada as a good example, the iMRS system was the first PEMF system for home use to be approved by this regulatory body. This was not easy to achieve. In order to do this, the manufacturer could only submit independent research evidence of the PEMF parameters used by the iMRS system which demonstrated the effectiveness of the device.
How much does it cost to become a Bemer distributor?
You can become a Bemer distributor for the cost of $390. This includes 2-day Bemer distributor academy training and also your branded website for one year. Somewhat worryingly, you do not need to own a Bemer system in order to become a Bemer distributor. I personally would not be happy to purchase a PEMF system from an individual who didn’t believe in the device enough to invest in their own Bemer mat. This means there may well be Bemer distributors who provide buying advice on order to earn commission, but are not using the system on a regular basis so are limited in their knowledge of using PEMF therapy.
All iMRS Prime distributors purchase their own systems and use the device on a regular basis. iMRS Prime distributors can therefore greatly improve their health, as well as earning a fantastic second (or even main) income.
This means that in addition to my many years of in-depth PEMF therapy research, I have personally used the iMRS PEMF system on a daily basis for the best part of a decade, and my own health has benefited greatly. This has also provided me with a great deal of theoretical and practical knowledge for both working with, and educating others, about the many benefits of PEMF therapy.
If you are looking to become a PEMF therapy distributor, look no further than working with the iMRS Prime system. The manufacturer, Swiss Bionic Solutions, offer a fantastic commission reward program for all distributors, which surpasses that of BEMER. Most importantly, because you will be a user of PEMF therapy yourself, you will have invaluable knowledge to pass on to others wishing to improve their health, and your own health will greatly benefit in the process!
To become an iMRS Prime PEMF distributor, contact Samuel Maddock Health today.
What does a Bemer machine do?
The Bemer machine uses a form of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy. It uses a specific combination of PEMF frequency and intensity. What most people don’t realise is that the Bemer machine in itself is not different to other types of PEMF machines that deliver low frequency and intensity PEMF therapy. There are many other PEMF machines available. The Bemer machine is a good system but there is actually now an alternative that may be slightly lesser known but is better than the BEMER machine, and that is the new iMRS Prime system.
Do Bemer mats work?
Bemer mats have a well known marketing approach in the PEMF industry, which centres around ‘microcirculation or vascular therapy benefits’. The Bemer system does work, and can help improve microcirculation (the blood flow to body tissues through the smallest blood vessels in the body which is important for healing and repair), BUT this is by no means a unique benefit to the BEMER system. Bemer mats work for the same reason that other PEMF therapy mats work. It is all about the PEMF parameters they use. Not the marketing message or patents they possess. Many PEMF mat systems can improve tissue microcirculation, and the iMRS family of PEMF systems (includes the new iMRS Prime) has been shown in independent research by Dr Magda Havas PhD (Trent University) to be very effective at improving tissue microcirculation. You can watch her testimonial of her experience here. https://youtu.be/zSD5FagH5AU
How does a Bemer work?
Bemer is a brand of PEMF device which has been manufactured for home use by the BEMER group since 1998. Whilst it is one of the better known devices, it is not the best. In fact, what the Bemer is best at is marketing. They have created a strong marketing message answering the question how does a bemer work. The main benefit that Bemer is known for is the improvement of microcirculation within the body. It achieves this by using PEMF or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy to produce electromagnetic waves that pass through the body and help to improve circulation.
There answer not only implies that it is the best system available, but also implies that it is the only PEMF mat device capable of improving microcirculation. This is simply not the case. You see, once we look a little closer at the Bemer marketing message, a large majority appears to be based on what is termed ‘industry friendly’ research. This means that the researcher had a very close association with the subject of the research. This is not the type of research that enables impartial comparison with other PEMF mat devices. In fairness, the BEMER device has also been subject to independent research, but the results have been mixed and certainly not as impressive as their apparently industry friendly research findings.
iMRS Prime vs Omnium1 2.0
Should you choose the iMRS Prime or Omnium1 2.0 system? Both use the same base PEMF technology, manufactured by Swiss Bionic Solutions. The iMRS Prime is certainly more advanced and offers more features than the Omnium1 2.0, so it is our PEMF system of choice for the home user. But the Omnium1 2.0 is great to use on the move. In fact it is the best PEMF system to use on the go. For this reason, some of our clients choose to have both systems, so they are never without the many benefits of daily PEMF therapy. For further Omnium1 2.0 details or to help you make the right decision for your needs, please do not hesitate to contact us.
iMRS Prime vs MAS
Which system is right for you, the iMRS Prime or MAS PEMF mat system? The MAS system is more expensive than the iMRS Prime but does possess some similar features on the top models. However, for us that is where the similarity ends as the MAS system combines both high PEMF frequency and intensity signals. Not only does research show that combined high frequency and intensity is less effective, it has also highlighted some harmful effects on cellular DNA. (Pall 2013). The iMRS Prime is the only choice here.
iMRS vs Ondamed
Should you choose the iMRS Prime or Ondamed PEMF mat system? The Ondamed is a practitioner focussed high frequency and intensity PEMF device and is up to five times as expensive as the iMRS Prime. Whilst there are disease specific benefits to using high level systems, they are not suitable for long term preventative health use. The iMRS Prime is much simpler to use, designed for long term daily use, and is a fraction of the price. The iMRS Prime also uses intelligent biofeedback mechanisms not featured on the Ondamed, not to mention all the established benefits of low level, earth based PEMF therapy that the iMRS Prime can deliver.
iMRS Prime vs OMI
This is a question we are increasingly asked. Should you go for the iMRS or OMI PEMF mat system? The OMI is a relatively new PEMF system with some similar features to the iMRS Prime. For this reason we have tested it extensively. Our main concern lies with the standard frequency range (1-99Hz), which is far greater than we would ever recommend to general users for a long term, mat based system. Whilst on paper the features and PEMF principles of the OMI look promising, it is in the application of these principles where it falls down. Only with advanced training should it be possible for users to combine higher frequency (above 30Hz) and intensity PEMF signals. (This is a feature of the professional iMRS Prime ‘Trial’ package, which requires advanced training and certification to access the higher frequency and alternative PEMF waveform settings).
The OMI is cheaper than the iMRS Prime so it does appeal to some users. But the build quality is not as good as the iMRS Prime, and ultimately you do get what you pay for with the iMRS Prime PEMF mat system. That is, a superior PEMF system in all respects. For more details of the iMRS Prime packages that are available please visit this page.
iMRS Prime vs Curatron (Parmeds)
Which system is best, the iMRS Prime or Curatron PEMF system? Curatron offer a range of high intensity PEMF systems. Whilst there are benefits to using high intensity systems for pain relief, these systems rely on the principle that a high intensity signal is required for the cells within the body to respond. In fact, the opposite is the case. According to research carried out by Professor Martin Pall, our cells have the ability to act like transducers and amplify any EMF signal they receive by up to 7 million times! With this in mind, it is not difficult to see why high level PEMF systems have the potential to overstimulate our cells.
If you are looking for long term, health promoting PEMF therapy, the iMRS Prime system is far better suited to your needs. For more details of the iMRS packages that are available please visit this page.
iMRS vs QRS
Should you buy the iMRS Prime or QRS PEMF mat system? The QRS mat based system has been available for a number of years and employs a relatively low PEMF intensity range, lower than the iMRS Prime system in fact.
