At BEMER, user safety is always our top priority. Our devices generate a low frequency electromagnetic signal that stimulates muscles, causing the muscles to contract and thereby increasing local, temporary blood flow. BEMER products are manufactured according to the latest technology and are completely safe to operate. Nevertheless, hazards could be caused by this device, especially if the device is used for a purpose other than the Intended Uses. Make sure that you have completely read and understood the user manual and contact us if you have any questions.
The BEMER device is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. In case of any questions or concerns, please consult your own healthcare provider to determine if usage of the BEMER device is safe for you.
