PEMF Unit Comparison
PEMF technology is revolutionizing the way doctors treat pain – and while there are
many different devices available, there is very little information explaining what makes
one PEMF machine better than any other.
If you’re like the rest of us, you probably found lots of confusing numbers and scientific
terms when you tried to find the real difference between these machines yourself. You
know, the kind of information you can’t find in a sales pitch!
That’s why, right here and right now, we are going to clear the fog surrounding what
makes one PEMF machine better than another – so you can make an informed decision as
a doctor or patient looking to experiment with one for yourself.
Why PEMF Works
To make a wiser buying decision, it helps to know what’s happening when you use a
PEMF device. We’re going to go over the basics so you have a clearer understanding of
what is really going on during your PEMF treatment. After you know, you may find it’s
easier to get a sense of which kind of PEMF device will work best for you. We’ll keep
this short, sweet and simple so remember to take mental notes because they’ll help you
when we start comparing the different machines.
The first PEMF device was called a ‘lightning’ machine for a reason! PEMF works
because it charges up your cells with electricity. Problems that the PEMF treats such as
chronic pain can only happen in areas of low voltage in the body. That is, places where
the cells are low on energy for any number of reasons (injury, fatigue, illness, etc).
A PEMF machine sends extra electrical charge to those low energy areas using magnetic
fields to carry it into the body. Basically, the device send a ‘package’ of energy into the
low energy areas – think of the magnetic field as the envelope and the electricity as the
message! And when the cells receive that electricity they immediately use it to heal the
body – and relief can happen very quickly (within seconds to minutes) depending on the
What makes the PEMF 4000 device different than the others?
There are only two big differences between PEMF machines:
1) How much electricity you get with each pulse.
There are two types of PEMF device: High Power and Low Power. Each gets results but
performs best in different situations. You can tell the difference between machines by
how many ‘Tesla per pulse’ it has – more Tesla equals more power!
High Power devices like the PEMF 4000 range up in the milliTesla (mT) per pulse. They
make a loud ‘pop’ sound during treatment because of an internal ‘spark’ process used to
generate the magnetic field. And you can feel immediate pain relieving results with them
within minutes (or, in the case of the PEMF 4000, seconds) of treatment. High Power
PEMF is also known for improving mood, killing bacteria and strengthening the immune
Low Power devices range from the milliTesla down into microTesla – just to give you
some perspective, a microTesla is 1000 times smaller than a milliTesla. Their pulses are
generated and controlled electronically. While people do report positive results they tend
to be for mood enhancement, insomnia relief and anti depression rather than for pain
management. In cases of pain, low-powered units can get results over the long term. They
may be effective treating animals for whom the High Powered units are too strong.
2) How fast each pulse enters the body.
This is important because the faster the pulse enters the body, the more energy the cell
will actually receive. That’s because the cell can only take in electricity that moves fast
enough to penetrate its cell wall! So, the faster the pulse, the more benefit you receive.
High Power devices pulse faster than Lower Power ones. And the PEMF 4000 pulses
much faster than other High Power units. You can tell by the treatment time it takes
before you feel results!
That’s why, for the PEMF unit comparison below, we calculated the treatment time
required before its users experienced tangible results. We calculated the timing based on
the testimonials posted by users on each machine’s company website and by the
testimony of our own users treating chronic pain with the PEMF 4000.
All you need to remember is this – the faster the pulse enters the cells, the shorter the
amount of time you need to treat before you feel powerful results!
