The iMRS system is the world leading PEMF therapy device for home use and it has the potential to deliver profound health benefits. If you have just acquired a system or are already an established user, you have made a very wise long term investment in your health.
Here are our top 10 tips to help you get the most out of using the iMRS
(Remember to consult the iMRS Operators’s Guide before you first use the iMRS system).
1. Limit electronic interference
For best result use the iMRS system in an environment free from other electronic devices.
2. Place your head at the cable end of the mat
When using the iMRS applicator mat, ensure that your head is placed at the cable end for each session. The mat can be either way up as the electromagnetic field is emitted from both sides.
3. Get comfortable
It is fine to use the iMRS in your normal clothing and to use pillows to support your posture as required, this will not affect the PEMF therapy. We suggest to remove large items of jewellery before each session. Make sure to use the mat on a firm surface. If you cannot lie on the floor, use a treatment plinth or a wooden board underneath the mat if using on a bed.
4. Keep hydrated
Aim to drink 2 glasses of water 15-30 minutes BEFORE each PEMF therapy session, and a total of 6-8 glasses per day. The effectiveness of PEMF therapy is greatly enhanced if the tissues in your body are well hydrated.
5. Use these mat settings
For the vast majority of individuals, two daily sessions of 8 minutes can be very effective as follows:
Morning session – ’Morning’ frequency, 10-50 intensity, 8 minutes.
Night session – ‘Night’ frequency, 10 intensity, 8 minutes.
6. Mat first, local applicators second
For local sites of pain or injury, first use the whole body mat applicator to active the body-wide effects of PEMF therapy. Then follow with either the pillow or probe applicator to address the local problem area. Consult the EMPpad user guide for further details regarding how to use the local applicators.
7. Use appropriate supplements
The benefits of daily PEMF therapy can be facilitated by taking on additional nutritional daily supplementation as follows:
- 1000 IU/day of Vitamin D3.
- 1000mg of Omega 3, 1-2 times daily.
- 350-500 mg/day of Magnesium Citrate.
- A good quality Multi-Vitamin.
8. Take care of your iMRS system
When not using the iMRS system, fold the applicator mat along its creases into an ’S’ shape. Do not bend or roll. Ensure to use and store the iMRS in a room free from moisture or damp. The iMRS applicators are made of medically approved vinyl and can be wiped clean or disinfected as required.
9. Be aware of the contraindications
You should NOT use the iMRS system if any of the following applies to you:
- During pregnancy.
- If you have a pace maker, or any other electrical device fitted.Following organ transplant.
We always recommend that you consult a doctor before using the iMRS system if you are suffering from:
