Nearly all blood vessels in our body are microvessels. If placed end-to-end, they would extend more than 74,000 miles.

The circulation of our blood is the engine that keeps us going. The heart pumps blood through the main arteries, but it relies on the additional power of the autonomous pumping motion of the microvessels. It is these very small vessels that reach the most remote parts of our body.


Oxygenated red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients through the arteries and capillaries to all the organs of the body. As the blood provides oxygen and nutrients to the cells, the cells in turn transfer carbon dioxide and waste products to the blood cells, which are then processed through the veins.

BEMER Circulation Comparison

Many physical discomforts are directly related to diminished circulatory system which can result in dysfunctional metabolic processes.

  • Better Supply of Oxygen
  • Better Supply of Nutrients
  • Better Disposal of Metabolic Waste

Necessary for your well-being

BEMER devices are designed to improve circulation and support the body’s natural self-regulating processes. Blood is the body’s universal means of transport; oxygen, nutrients, chemical messengers (e.g., hormones) and immune cells are all transported through our blood. When our body’s cells, tissues and organs are adequately nourished and metabolic waste products are removed, our bodies become healthy and function properly.

Good Blood Flow vs. Poor Blood Flow


Healthy blood flow allows oxygen and nutrients to permeate the body. When blood flow is reduced, the body experiences poor circulation, which may lead to more serious health issues.


The intricate design of the circulatory system houses the heart and nearly 75,000 miles of blood vessels, which work 24/7 to cycle blood throughout the body. BEMER positively impacts this process by increasing microcirculation.

BEMER Is Shown To Improve Microcirculatory Blood Flow By Up To 30%


Although blood vessels may look like a complex series of tubes that carry oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, vessels are actually active, dynamic organs.

Our research partners in Europe and Germany captured microvessels inside the human body before and after using the patented BEMER signal. These are the smallest blood vessels and are the same size as red blood cells, meaning they must shape-shift in order to pass.



Prior to using the BEMER signal, the constriction of the microvessels are barely wide enough to allow single cells to pass at a time. This restricts and compromises the blood flow within the body.



Once the BEMER signal is delivered, the difference in circulation is extreme. Cells are moving through the microvessels clearly, replenishing oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.

What is BEMER?

The working mechanism of BEMER consists of the transmission of a patented multi dimensionally configured signal (waveform). This unique signal is transmitted into the body via an electromagnetic field, meaning that it is the BEMER signal and not the electromagnetic field that acts as the “agent” that stimulates the circulatory response.

What are electromagnetic fields?

Electromagnetic fields arise as a result of electromagnetic interaction.

In general, wherever ions or electrons are moving, i.e. where electricity is flowing, a magnetic field arises perpendicular to the flow direction. This magnetic field in turn acts on electrically charged particles.

So does electricity flow into or through my body?

No. The device is subject to appropriate approvals in terms of the electrical safety of medical devices.

Why does a magnetic field permeate the human body?

Because they diffuse at the speed of light, low frequency pulsating magnetic fields used in magnetic field therapy have wavelengths of thousands of kilometers in length. Due to these very long wavelengths, they permeate all matter, including the human body. However, an electromagnetic field weakens very quickly with increased distance, losing intensity.

Can I overuse the BEMER therapy and harm my body?

The BEMER supports the body’s natural regulating mechanisms. However, it is important to follow the recommended Basic Plan as outlined in the user manual to ensure that the appropriate levels are being used in order to strengthen the body’s own regulating mechanisms. The intensity levels used are based on the desired depth of penetration and are not necessarily reflective of the overall effect of BEMER Therapy.


What is unique about BEMER?

The uniqueness of BEMER lies in its signal and its configuration. The signal leads to scientifically grounded stimulation of the smallest vessels supporting the circulatory system as a whole.

What does the plus signal mean?

This plus signal, which is integrated into the normal base signal, enables the individual to use the BEMER application to perform additional stimulation.

Ongoing research and further development of the BEMER PRO/CLASSIC SET has made it possible to use the plus signal continuously with all application modules.

Can I switch the plus signal off?

Yes, on the BEMER PRO/CLASSIC SETS the plus signal can be easily switched on and off by pressing a designated button.

At what flux density (intensity) does BEMER operate?

The whole-body application module B.BODY reaches a maximum average flux density of between 35 and 50 μT (microtesla); all other application modules (B.SPOT, B.PAD, B.SIT) have a maximum average flux density of between 100 and 150 μT (values with and without the plus signal respectively).

What does an application module do?

The intensity of an electromagnetic field is defined according to two measurements: the strength of the flowing current and the number of windings in the coil. This means that with equal current strength, the flux density of the electromagnetic field depends on the number of windings in the coil. For BEMER, there are two different types of coils; those used in the weaker whole-body application module (B.BODY) and those used in the stronger application modules (B.SPOT, B.PAD, and B.SIT). The current strength is regulated via the 10 Intensity Levels, or with three Programs, to reach the flux densities mentioned above.

At what voltage does BEMER operate?

The device operates with a 12–15 volt direct current. This is generated via an external power adapter with a mains connection (100–240 volt alternating current) or with the supplied battery. The device is electrically isolated from the electric circuit.

How is the whole-body application module B.Body constructed?

Four disc coils (upper torso) and two oval shaped coils (lower extremities) are integrated into the whole-body application module (B.BODY). When a current flows through these coils, an electromagnetic field is generated perpendicular to the flow direction of the current. Every BEMER system generates a pulsating field in this way (see BEMER impulse). Depending on the level selected on the control device, the intensity of the field (flux density) has an average value of between 3.5 and 35 μT (microtesla) without the plus signal and up to 50 μT with the plus signal activated (B.BODY).

What is the B.PAD and how can I use it?

The B.PAD is a flexible, long and narrow coil element with three integrated coils. Thanks to its flexible structure, the B.PAD can be wound around a joint or along the spinal column, or laid upon an arm or a leg as needed. Its length means that large sections of the body can also be stimulated at the same time, and its flexible and compact design means that it can easily be transported with the control unit when mobility is desired.

My control unit is showing error messages (with or without a recognized cause), what should I do?

Our devices undergo a strict and comprehensive quality control inspection before delivery. If an unexpected error message appears, please refer to the user manual. If the error message remains unresolved, please consult your trusted BEMER business partner or the BEMER Int. AG technical service hotline immediately (see manual). Refrain from any further applications with BEMER until the problem has been rectified. If there is visible damage (slackening of the adapter, failed LED, etc.) to the application module (B.BODY, B.PAD, B.SPOT, B.SIT or B.LIGHT) or to the control unit or cable, please refrain from any further applications using this module and contact your trusted BEMER business partner or the BEMER Int. AG technical service hotline immediately (see manual).

What is the B.LIGHT used for?

The B.LIGHT is only suitable for applications that are superficial in nature. The penetration of the LED red light (660 nm) is limited in depth and dependent on parameters such as skin color.

Can the light from the B.LIGHT be compared with conventional red lights or with the other forms of light therapy already available on the market (comfort lights, etc.)?

The B.LIGHT works with a non-coherent and monochromatic (i.e. very pure) red light with only one wavelength (660 nm), which is generated by light emitting diodes (LEDs). Contrary to mixed light, this light is a cold light, and its effects are primarily based on photo-biological/ chemical reactions. This process is known as photo-oxidation.

How does it differ from a red light laser?

A laser is monochromatic (pure light of only one wavelength) and coherent (in phase). The light of B.LIGHT is an LED (light emitting diode) and is monochromatic and not coherent.

What safety requirements are there for the B.LIGHT application module?

The LEDs used in the application comply with the requirements of DIN EN 62471. The LEDs are maintenance-free.

How do I apply the B.LIGHT?

For precise information on the application of the B.LIGHT, please refer to the manual or consult your trusted BEMER partner or the BEMER Int. AG user support.

According to the user information, certain diseases should only be treated by a doctor who is familiar with BEMER. Why is this?

This notification is used primarily to protect the user and has no direct connection with the efficacy of BEMER.

The following diseases fall into this category:

Unexplained fever:
A fever is actually not a disease but rather a defensive reaction. The cause of a fever must generally be identified by a doctor, because a fever is the body’s usual response to infections. The doctor will then decide if and how BEMER will be used.

Severe cardiac arrhythmias:
Severe cardiac arrhythmias can be life-threatening. First, the cause of the cardiac arrhythmias must be identified by a doctor. If the cause is a deficiency of certain minerals, these should be introduced prior to the application of BEMER, as otherwise the symptoms could worsen with the application of BEMER. Essentially, BEMER has a stabilizing effect on the cardiac rhythm. However, fear of the electromagnetic field can present a barrier to therapy, and may have undesired effects. Therefore, we recommend that the initial applications of BEMER be performed under a doctor’s supervision in the case of sever cardiac arrhythmias.

Major Aneurysms:
An aneurysm refers to a protrusion of a blood vessel as a result of vessel wall damage or disease. Badly damaged blood vessels can burst at any time and cause fatal internal bleeding. Since blood pressure can decrease under the influence of BEMER (if used correctly), this can alleviate the strain on the vessel wall. In the best case scenario, the probability that a blood vessel will burst can be minimized. BEMER has a stabilizing effect on the vessel wall in the long term. In particular, fear of the electromagnetic field can present a barrier to therapy and blood pressure may even rise temporarily. Therefore, for the safety of the patient, we recommend that the initial applications be performed under a doctor’s supervision who can reassure the patient and eliminate his or her fear.

Non-pharmaceutically-compensated seizure disorders:
If these seizures (especially epilepsy and schizophrenia) cannot be compensated by medications, we recommend that BEMER applications be performed under a doctor’s supervision for the safety of the patient.
