While the therapy is similar, the difference is in the delivery method and the ability to focus the right level of power to the specific area that needs it. While the blankets provide a low, uniform level of power, it may not be adequate for deeper injuries or in denser parts of the body.
The power of PEMF is measured in Gauss, like distance is measured in Feet. The cells need at least 25 Gauss in order to effect cellular repair, while it is believed that 50 to 85 Gauss is considered an optimal level. As the magnetic field travels away from the blanket or loop, through denser tissue such as bone, the power diminishes. So it is important to be able to deliver the right level of power to the damaged areas. So the main areas of difference are as follows:
The cellular exercise that rehabilitates cells is unique to PEMF. The following are the main points of differentiation:
While both the laser and PEMF deliver increased energy to areas of need, the following are the main points of differentiation:
