The 10 Best PEMF Therapy Devices
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Pulsed electromagnetic fields have garnered some attention in the medical industry recently, though it's hard to say whether they offer more of a placebo effect than anything else. You may have to try it to see for yourself and, to that end, these PEMF therapy devices let you take the technology into your home, saving a ton of money on professionally administered sessions.

A big dividing line in this category exists between devices designed only to provide patients with pulsed electromagnetic fields, and those that also include some combination of infrared and photon therapy. It seems that, more often than not, the infrared mats place an emphasis on their crystal-based heat therapy, adding PEMF to the designs as an afterthought since it's becoming more popular. Our top picks defy that by more thoughtfully integrating powerful and flexible coil systems into their mats, and they own those top spots specifically because they offer both a high-quality of EMF and other top-tier therapies in a single product. The model by Bio Amethyst in particular embodies this combination of medical-grade features. As a result, capable offerings that only provide users with PEMF therapy (like those from Oxford Medical Instruments) don't crack into our top three, but rather hold prominent positions around the middle and back end of our list.
Of course, a lot of the science on this therapy is still coming in, so there might be a shakeup to the category as physicians and clinical trials discover more effective ranges of electromagnetic power within or without those currently employed by these products.
