Looking to purchase your own PEMF device?

Some Questions to Consider when choosing a PEMF company or distributor

This list is certainly not meant to be an exhaustive list of questions to pose before purchasing PEMF machines or equipment, but hopefully, it will help guide consumers and help articulate the nuances between PEMF devices.  These questions will also help define reasonable expectations for use of different PEMF machines and equipment.  If you have additional questions, the AOPP is always happy to help as best we can.  You can email us at [email protected]

1. How does a PEMF machine work? Which type of machine do they offer?
A PEMF machine is either an analog or digital device. An analog machine has a spark chamber inside to generate the electromagnetic pulse. A digital machine works from a computer chip to determine the intensity matched up with the level.

2. Are there different machine options and strengths available?
Look at the machine options and see if there is one to fit your needs. Some companies offer both high and low-powered machines for a wide variety of PEMF equipment.

3. Is there continued support after you purchase the machine?
You want to make sure you can still contact someone if you have any questions or need assistance with your machine. If a company is unable to return a call or email in a timely manner, you may want to consider a more supportive company.

4. Is there education available with the machine?
Purchasing the machine is an exciting endeavor, but you need to make sure you know how to use it! Look and see if the company offers a training or certification program so you have the knowledge to use the machine to the best of your ability.

5. Is there safety testing done on the equipment?
This is important when considering PEMF equipment to ensure your machine is third-party safety tested.

6. Does the company offer rentals?
Rentals can be the way to go if you are on the fence about determining what PEMF machine is right for you. Make sure to ask if there are rental options and if you can purchase or exchange the machine at the end of the rental period.

7. What is the warranty on the machine?
PEMF machines from different companies come with different warranties. Make sure to ask how long your warranty is and how much it covers.

8. Does the company offer returns or trade-ins?
Maybe your machine does not quite fit your needs. Determine what the policy is if you either want to return your machine or trade-in for a different machine.
