How to Choose the Best PEMF Device

Choosing a PEMF device can be a challenge! After all, these devices are expensive and confusing. Unless you're a medical professional, how are you supposed to pick the best one?

In this article, we'll break down what you need to consider when choosing a PEMF device. We'll talk about some of the confusing terminology and even caution you about some common scams.

What is a PEMF device?

PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic field. PEMF therapy is an effective, non-invasive and drug-free treatment for many health concerns, including chronic pain and insomnia.

The best PEMF devices treat your cells like batteries, recharging them with energy when they are depleted. By the end of the day, your entire body and mind can be exhausted and worn down. That's why PEMF technology is so revolutionary. It infuses your body with energy when you need it most!

How do you choose the best one?

Not every PEMF device is the same. There are different types of PEMF devices, such as mats, vibration plates and handheld devices. Even similar devices have profound differences in hertz range or gauss range.

1. Choose Your Device Type

The first step toward choosing the perfect one for you is to determine what kind of device you want. There are generally three types of PEMF devices: mats, vibration plates, and handheld devices.

If you want a PEMF device that you can use anywhere, it's generally best to purchase a handheld device. Mats can only be used if you are laying or sitting down, whereas handheld devices like Cell Coil can be used anywhere.

Although mats are also available for home use, they are generally less useful because you have to be sitting or laying down to use them. They also only target a general area instead of a specific area for treatment.

Vibration plates are rarely used for in-home treatments. They cost a lot of money and also only offer generalized support. For example, the Sonix Professional VC15 Whole Body Vibration system costs over $10,000 from Da Vinci Medical. It's out of reach for many people who want at-home PEMF treatments.

2. Check the Data

There are two measurements that can tell you a lot about a PEMF device: hertz and gauss. You want to pay attention to both of these measurements to make sure that you're getting an effective treatment tool.


First, hertz is a measurement of frequency. It refers to the number of cycles or pulses per second that the PEMF device emits.

Different frequencies can have varying effects on the body, so it's important to consider your specific health condition. Lower frequencies, such as 1-30 Hz, are often used for relaxation and sleep. Higher frequencies, such as 30-100 Hz, are commonly employed for pain management and tissue repair.

Many PEMF devices only range from 1-50 hertz. This does not give you a lot of options, especially in the therapeutic ranges. Cell Coil products can range from 1-500 hertz which is a much broader range.


Gauss (G) is a unit of magnetic field strength and represents the intensity of the magnetic field generated by the PEMF device. Higher gauss values indicate a stronger magnetic field.

Most consumer PEMF devices have a gauss rating of less than 1. Less than ONE! However, Cell Coil products can generate over 100 gauss depending on the type of device you are using to transmit those signals. When you use a Cell Coil Amp, a single puck can reach over 100 gauss!


You want to make sure that your portable PEMF device is truly portable. Make sure that you check the dimensions on the listing to ensure that it's something that you can actually tote around.

Pay special attention to the width and height to make sure that it will fit in your pocket, backpack, or luggage. Pay attention to the weight as well.

Cable Length

Since handheld devices can be used to target different places on your body, it's important to make sure that the pucks can reach those places. Some PEMF devices have pitifully small cables, which may require you to contort and twist in uncomfortable ways to attach them and use the device.

Cell Coil has a 4' cable to make sure that you have the space you need to comfortably place the pucks and position yourself during treatment.

3. Check for Warranties

When you're preparing to spend a lot of money on a medical device, it's important to make sure that you can buy with confidence. If you don't trust the company or if they don't offer a warranty on their product, be very careful!

All Cell Coil products are sold with a 30 day return policy. If you are not satisfied, you can receive a 100% refund for your purchase.

Try CellCoil Today!

Cell Coil has been carefully engineered by our team to deliver a powerful PEMF therapy that is comparable to clinical machines. It can deliver up to 100+ gauss, which is over 100x more than most other consumer PEMF devices!

In addition, our devices can generate an effective range of up to 500 hertz. They can provide any wave form and work on any mobile device.

The convenient puck design allows you to direct that powerful PEMF therapy to any part of your body that needs treatment. It isn't as restrictive as a mat or as expensive as a vibration plate. The mobile design allows you to enjoy your PEMF therapy wherever, whenever you need it. The power is in the palm of your hand!


Choosing the right PEMF device can be a daunting task, considering the range of options available and the technical terminology involved. In this article, we've covered the essential factors to help you make an informed decision. We reviewed the basic terminology and the most important things you need to consider when purchasing your new device.
