WHAT IS PEMF?
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. Devices that use PEMF technology for therapy produce electromagnetic fields with various waveforms and frequencies that stimulate healthy muscles in order to improve and facilitate muscle performance.
Uniquely, the BEMER device thereby temporarily increases local blood circulation in healthy leg muscles.
The effectiveness of these waves depend on specific parameters to target our cell tissues. Much like a musical song that has a specific melody, rhythm and tempo, PEMF therapy devices deliver waves in an organized sequence (melody), at specific frequencies (rhythm) set to a certain pulse (tempo).
Local and targeted PEMF therapy directly stimulates electrical activity within the muscle tissues “the field” interacts with. Think of charging a toothbrush or a cell phone wirelessly.
The concept works the same within the body. But instead of charging a battery – you are charging your cells! When your cells are charged, they can provide the highest level of functionality to you, supporting your optimal performance and expedited recovery. BEMER works in concert with your body, enhancing the vitality within.
IS PEMF THERAPY SAFE?
For starters, electromagnetic energy is around us all the time—from the shows we stream on our phones, to listening to the radio and even in the human body (which emits heat, i.e. infrared waves). Check out this Educational Video from NASA that explains the electromagnetic spectrum.
PEMF devices are safe because the waves they produce are located toward the lowest end of the electromagnetic spectrum, which means they are safe to pass through the human body.
