I have always disliked MLM (Multi Level Marketing) companies and now I have one more reason to dislike them.
I was astounded on May 3rd, that BEMER’s distributor policy does not allow product returns. I learned this from a customer who attempted to cancel his order for a BEMER before he received his unit. He told me that he placed his order for the BEMER over the phone and was offered the opportunity to become a distributor for the BEMER by paying $300.00 more at the time of order. What our prospective customer did not know was that a BEMER distributor does not have the same rights as a BEMER standard end user, the distributor does not have the right to return a product or cancel an undelivered order.
Our customer was proud that he had placed an order for a BEMER and bragged a little to a friend. His friend told him that he might have made an error. He told him that there are systems such as the Curatron available with much higher power and effectiveness. This resulted in a phone call to me, the customer said that he’d call BEMER, cancel the order and place an order with us. To his surprise he learned that he could not cancel his order and also that he would not be permitted to return the unit as he was a distributor.
I guess one really does need to check the fine print.
This post is actually being written on the day I learned of this issue but I have chosen to schedule it’s release on this blog until July 3rd to make sure that our customer and BEMER have a chance to work this out before this gets published.

We consider the Curatron to be a full PEMF system in that it genuinely generates magnetic pulses rather than RF pulses, The PMT120 and others generate probably what can be called an RF pulse similar to those generated by Marconi, Tesla and others demonstrating early forms of radio communication. Marconi used a spark gap that would fire when the voltage across it was high enough to discharge across a preset air gap in the way that lightning occurs when a cloud’s voltage is so high that it has to discharge by creating a spark between the cloud and the ground.
Recall the famous drinking bird who recharges with water to cool himself down
Think of a spark gap and a capacitor in the same way that you would think of water flowing into a tipping bucket that tips and empties itself when the water level reaches a point when gravity takes over causing the bucket to tip. In the case of Marconi and others, they used a tuned circuit so the energy dispensed when their spark gap fired would generate a single frequency and its harmonics into an antenna. The spark systems are similar but there is no tuned circuit and the antenna is the coil or length of wire attached.
A true PEMF system creates a magnetic field caused by a high current in a coil like an electromagnet. PEMF systems are highly controllable. Spark systems generate a series of pulses. The pulse magnitude is dependent on the size of the capacitor (bucket) and the pulse frequency (time between pulses) is dependent on the firing point of the spark gap, basically a semi-controllable bolt of lighting. Maximum voltages in the Curatron system are very low, perhaps 100 Volts or so in comparison to tens of thousands of volts in a spark system where the voltages can reach 30 to 40 kV It’s the high current passing through coil(s) that generate magnetic energy.
It’s a shame that the spark systems use the PEMF name. They really should be called something else to differentiate them from PEMF machines. I remember when MRI machine technology was called NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance). the word nuclear, scared everyone and the name became MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) was born. Of course the word nuclear was used as it is the nucleus of the atoms in our bodies that was referenced, not nuclear energy.
Square Wave Gated Sine Wave Carrier Frequency
The wave form generated and the power or magnetic flux density of our applicators is what sets us apart from all the others.
The Curatron waveform is unique and very difficult to create. Other systems use simple waveforms such as a simple square wave, a simple triangle wave or a a simple sawtooth wave. Each of those do not provide a high slew rate, rate of rise or Speed of Induction that is all too important in the world of PEMF. (more…)

THIS IS NOT A REAL PRODUCT
It concerns me that some of our competitors claim to be manufacturing panacea machines. It’s companies like this, that give the industry the moniker of quackery and purveyors of snake oil. They also severely weaken the confidence in PEMF systems. PEMF is not a panacea nor does it help everyone with every problem available. (more…)
