What is a Bemer Mat?

  • Founded in 1998
  • Used by over 1 million people worldwide
  • Provides PEMF therapy
  • PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field
  • PEMF overview video available on my website!
  • PEMF Benefits include improving your microcirculation, energy, healing speed, immune system and pain relief
  • Improve your circulation. Improve your health. Improve your life.

The current version of the Bemer machine has 2 models. The Classic Set and the Pro Set

Classic Set

  • B.BOX Classic – 1 applicator at a time
  • B.BODY Classic – The Mat
  • B.SPOT – Circular Applicator
Bemer Classic set

Pro Set

  • B.BOX Professional – 2 applicators at a time-Programable – Plus signal
  • B.BODY Professional – The Mat
  • B.SPOT – Circular Applicator
  • B.LIGHT with Protective Goggles
  • B.PAD

The Bemer Story

Dr Rainer Klopp was the head researcher of the Institute of Microcirculation. He said “Bemer is the most effective and widely researched physical therapy method available today.”

Does that make sense?

I don’t know how he can seriously claim Bemer is the most widely researched physical therapy method. It is not particularly widely researched compared to massage therapy or hot or cold therapies. This puts into question his credibility. A quick search on Dr Rainer Klopp does show a website that claims that the Institute of Microcirculation is a virtual entity created to promote the Bemer brand. I am not sure how true this is but it you are interested you can read that website Here –> Tracing a phantom

Lots of Bemer videos and websites will claim a partnership with Bemer and Nasa. While they are listed as a partner on Nasa’s website, the estimated dollar value is $10,587 which is next to nothing for companies of their size. It looks like Bemer gave Nasa a prototype to be used in spacesuits and Nasa has not gone forward any further with the partnership as far as anyone can tell. It is rather misleading to say that the partnership “is a high degree of recognition and underlines BEMER technology’s widespread acceptance”

Features and Product Specs

The signal frequency: 33Hz or 10Hz on the sleep mode

There are 15 sine waves in each “Bemer Wave” so it is similar to 15 x 33Hz = 495 HZ and 15 x 10Hz = 150Hz if you are comparing with PEMF therapy studies that use normal sine waves or square waves.

The signal intensity: 3.5 µT – 35 µT and 50 µT with plus signal

Plus Signal: Every 20 seconds the Bemer sends a pulse at a high intensity

Polarity Reversal: Every 2 minutes the polarity of the signal reverses

The Signal Shape:

Bemer Studies

3 Positive Bemer Studies

      • Reduced pain from people with regional pain syndrom type 1.
      • Improved energy for patients with multiple sclerosis.
      •  Seemed to slow tumor growth in rats.

1 Positive / Neutral  Bemer Studies

      •  Helped reduce back pain but not knee pain.

1 Neutral Bemer Study

      • Changed cancer cells but it is unknown if there is a positive effect.
1 Negative Bemer Study
      • Did not help woman with fibromyalgia reduce any pain.

1 Not Reliable Bemer Study

      • Questionnaires came back positive but they are not a reliable   measuring instrument and do not account for how the questionnaire is worded or placebo.

Non-Bemer PEMF Studies

In 1995, Sisken & Walker reviewed many PEMF therapy studies. They found that different frequencies had different healing effects in the body. As you can see in the table, 2Hz was good for nerve regeneration , 7Hz for bone, 10Hz for ligament healing and so on.

That is why the frequency of your PEMF therapy is so important.

Frequency Window

The Use of Magnetic Field for the Reduction of Inflammation: A Review of the History and Therapeutic Results

The next table shows which frequencies have been found to produce positive effects for specific inflammatory related conditions.

The frequencies found beneficial are mostly between 1 – 75Hz. A lot of them are between 1 – 25 Hz. 

What is interesting is Fibromyalgia was found to have “improved function, decreased pain and fatigue and improved global status in FM patients” with frequencies from 0.1 – 64Hz. The Bemer study showed that Bemer did not help reduce pain in Fibromyalgia patients. My theory as to why this is is Bemer uses 33Hz in their mat but there are 15 sine waves in each Bemer wave. If you want to compare the Bemer wave frequency with this study it would be more accurate to say the Bemer mat has 15 x 33Hz = 495Hz worth of pulses. 495 is outside the 0.1 – 64Hz range found beneficial which might be why there was no effect.

This is the main problem with the Bemer mat. The number of pulses per second generated by the Bemer mat is outside the frequency window that has been shown to give the best results in studies.

The Healthy Wave Multi-Wave mat has the best frequency range from 1-25Hz. This range has been used by many of the studies in the previous tables with positive results. The signal shape is also the same as used in the studies. Most studies use the square wave. With the Healthy Wave-Multi wave mat you can imitate the signal used in these studies. You can select 1Hz, 2Hz, 3Hz up to 25Hz as well as 7.8 Hz which is the base Schumann resonance frequency.

Signal Penetration Test

The Bemer 3000 is an older model of the Bemer. I got a hold of one along with an iMRS and Healthy wave mat to do some testing. I do not know how well the Bemer pro set would do on this test. When I get a hold of one I will update this video with the newer model of Bemer.
