In this article I will show you how to choose a magnet therapy device for you or for a family member, untangling us among the many offers that the market offers today.
In this regard, I want to remind you that, although magnetotherapy is a therapy without side effects, the use of a machine to carry out cycles is always indicated on medical advice or prescription, so that it can be your treating doctor. highlight the benefits of treatment e evaluate the possible contraindications.
Introduction to magnetic therapy devices
If you've come to read this post, you've probably already read our article on magnetotherapy and its benefits and then you already know that one of the advantages of magnetotherapy is precisely that of being a therapy that can be carried out at home, without the help of a professional. This important aspect, besides obviously the validity of magnetotherapy, in recent years has led this market to grow in a dizzying way, and consequently the manufacturers of appliances to design models for home use suitable for all budgets, with characteristics that now meet almost all needs. For you, the end user, this is a considerable advantage: the more competition there is on the market, the more the products will be of quality at advantageous prices, with more checks by the bodies in charge. And we all know how important it is to choose well when it comes to health!
A quality device for home magnetotherapy (which will be used and maintained correctly), will last for many years, it is therefore important that you know how to orient yourself on a careful purchase by choosing the right model for your needs, without incurring expensive costs or even worse. in very economical models with features inadequate to your needs. There is no perfect model, each manufacturer follows its own "philosophy" that makes its product different in some way from the others. Behind the electro-magnetic field, each device can offer different characteristics based on its functionality, the type of applicators supplied and above all the type of audience to which it is addressed.
Evaluate the real needs
To make a correct purchase, it is therefore necessary to focus on some aspects. First of all, evaluate the opinion of a specialist, a good doctor will be able to analyze your state of health current assessing also the clinical progress. Consider and evaluate yours too lifestyle, it would make little sense to start taking care of magnetotherapy if you follow an unhealthy lifestyle afterwards.
Another important aspect is having a budget idea you can invest. Usually, the devices designed for use home and private, they have significantly lower costs compared to magnetotherapy devices aimed at professionals in the field (such as doctors and physiotherapists), but equipped with features and accessories that at home would be almost useless.
Once this is done, it is necessary know what your real needs are. If the need is to do sessions of magnet therapy during the night, you can consider a model that gives you the opportunity to do long-term cycles (so with a timer that can also be set up to 12 hours), if you are a very dynamic person and need is to do it even when you travel (by car or train), you can orient yourself on compact and battery-powered models, which also provide autonomy for 3 hours. Similarly, if you need to be an elderly person to do magnetotherapy you can choose a simple model to use.
Another aspect that I advise you to take into account is what you need to take care of, then the pathology. The general line are three main reasons that lead to treatment with magnetotherapy:
- the treatment of chronic diseases (osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, etc.)
- the treatment of traumas (fractures, sprains, inflammations, etc.)
- maintaining an excellent level of health
In the first two cases, you will need a medium or high power magnetotherapy device, better if equipped with a double channel to cure two parts of the body together, and equipped with high intensity applicators for a quick rehabilitation especially in case of painful pathologies; if your goal is instead maintain an optimal state of health, you can opt for a simple model with a good amount of programs (so you can use it for different diseases), without those special features and accessories suitable for major trauma.
What are the technical characteristics to consider?
Now I will show you what are the technical characteristics to consider when buying a magnet therapy device. The main feature is the construction technology, and is one of the reasons why there are devices for magnetotherapy with very different prices.
The construction technology differentiates the devices based on the frequency of the electro magnetic field emitted. In fact, the devices for magnetic therapy can be both a low frequency that ad high frequency. The appliances for low frequency magnetotherapy are able to emit pulsed electromagnetic fields at a frequency that can vary from 1Hz to 150Hz. They are particularly indicated as adjuvant for the regeneration of bone tissue, and is in fact often prescribed following fractures o surgeries where there is a need to accelerate bone callus formation (or in cases where this is difficult to reform), or even in all those diseases affecting hard tissues such as osteoporosis. By succeeding in reestablishing correct cellular functioning, low-frequency magnetotherapy can also be used as anti-inflammatory therapy, resulting therefore a valid cure on soft tissues.
Magnetic therapy ad high frequency, on the other hand, it works in a slightly different way, since it is the emission of small “packets of radio waves” at a frequency that varies between 18MHz and 900MHz. The applications in this case are effective for all those pathologies that affect soft tissues such as tendons and cartilages.
Therefore, if magnetotherapy will be used to cure an important pathology aimed at the bone tissue, the device must necessarily be a model Low frequency CEMP (CEMP is the acronym for Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields), but if the therapy is aimed at soft tissues such as tendons, or if we need it for the optimal maintenance of our state of health, it is possible to choose a cheaper device with high frequency.
Most of the magnetic therapy devices currently on the market are equipped with both preset programs that show the name of the pathology (fracture program, arthrosis program, anti-inflammatory program, etc.), and with "free" programs where it is possible to set the working frequency. So let's make sure that the appliance we are buying is equipped with the program of our interest, or that it can work at the frequency recommended by its specialist.
Another important feature is the power emitted by the machine, measured in Gauss. You will surely have asked yourself: How much power do you need to perform the therapy? Is power a fact that really denotes the quality and efficiency of a machine? There is no answer that everyone can agree on, because it depends both on the part of the body that is being treated, and on the pathology itself that we have to treat.
A machine more powerful than another will be able to treat pathologies on larger areas of the body that are deeper. To perform therapies on bones or soft tissues that are sufficiently on the surface, such as the patella of the knee, the phalanges, the wrist, the malleolus, there is no need for high powers.
To make the idea better, I'll give you an example. A magnetic therapy machine for professional use is able to deliver pulsed magnetic fields at powers that even reach 120-150 Gauss per channel. A post-operative therapy for hallux valgus, on a person of average build, can be treated at 20 Gauss and will have on average the same result as the same treatment carried out on the same person, but 50 Gauss. Similarly, the treatment of a fracture of a femur (therefore larger bones and deeper site) may also require 70-80 Gauss to be effective.
Why do manufacturers increasingly focus on machines with very high powers? One might be inclined to think that the answer concerns a pure marketing question, but in reality a high power offers one greater robustness of the machine, which will thus guarantee stable and effective results over time, but above all the possibility of covering the entire list of programs for which the machine has been programmed, including those that are to be used with applicators that need higher powers to work properly.

The importance of the correct applicator
Until now I have talked to you about how to evaluate the characteristics of the machine for magnetotherapy, or body machine that we are going to program and that deals with generating the pulsed electromagnetic field. Now I will talk to you about the applicators, or those objects that once connected to the camera body, emit and convey the electromagnetic field on ourselves.
There are different types, and even for them the design choices follow the manufacturer's philosophy. However, the basic concept is the same for everyone: inside the applicator is the solenoid, which is nothing more than a circular magnet with a diameter of a few centimeters, from which the electro magnetic field is generated.
The applicators are generally supplied with the machine body and it is not uncommon for the manufacturers to produce other compatible products that can be purchased separately. Based on the therapy to be done, it is important that you choose to use the right applicator: for example, if you have to treat superficial body parts with magnetotherapy (such as hallux valgus, knee, tibia, malleolus), the band applicator, which generally contains 2 or 3 solenoids, could do for us. It is a very versatile applicator, light and not very uncomfortable to wear. In case of fractures on parts of the body with more important dimensions such as the femur, hip or shoulder, it becomes essential to use the pair of bonnet solenoids or a pair of rigid solenoids, which are larger in size than those contained by the fascia, therefore more suitable for therapies where we treat tissues in depth.
In the case of widespread pathologies such as arthrosis and osteoporosis, or therapies on flat areas such as the back or pelvis, the use of an applicator such as the mat or the mattress for magnetotherapy. These two applicators, in fact, are ideal for long night sessions of magnetotherapy, as they can also be placed on the mattress of our bed, under the sheet, or in the case of the mat even on the sofa at home, on a chair, or on the seat of a wheelchair (generally the radiating mats have measures of about 40 x 40 cm).
When considering the purchase of an applicator for our magnetotrapy device, the advice is however to take one that allows you to make a therapy that is as localized as possible. Indeed, the more the electro magnetic field will affect the part to be treated, the more effective the cure will be. Applicators such as the elastic band or the pair of solenoids with cuffs, give the possibility to position the solenoid that is inside them directly on the interested part, therefore the therapy will be very effective as it is localized. On the contrary, use the mat applicator or the mattress where they are not necessary, such as small or uneven parts, could nullify the effectiveness of the therapy.
Purchase and rental of magnetotherapy devices
Now that you have an idea of how a magnet therapy device works and what you need, let's see together when it is convenient to buy it, or to rent it.
In both cases, I advise you to contact a seller who proves to be available, competent and has an excellent customer service after sale / rental. Only in this way will you have confirmation of a serious and professional service, which will be different from the last minute offers from the stall that risk embarking on poorly targeted purchases. Even the web market is full of offers and, although the products are always the same, even in this case the after-sales service is one of the things that will make the difference.
If you are oriented towards the purchase of a magnetotherapy device for home use, it is good that you know that the cost can range from about € 150 for a high-frequency model up to € 450 for the most advanced low-frequency dual-channel models. You can find one list of excellent appliances here.
Even if the cost may not always seem accessible to you, the good news is that all models are deductible from healthcare costs (as long as they are certified as Medical Devices), so with the purchase invoice you can recover up to 19% of the costs incurred. Ditto for thepurchase with VAT facilitated at 4% for those entitled.
The rental, on the other hand, could prove to be an excellent choice for those who need to do magnetotherapy for short periods (usually from 25 to 40 days), often following an injury. In this case the costs are much lower, and the cost estimate for a month of magnetotherapy can be around a little more than 120 €. If you decided to rent a magnet therapy device, always make sure that the renter supplies you with low-frequency equipment, CEMP, and certified as CE Medical Devices.
If you want to get an idea of what are the characteristics of the magnetotherapy devices used for rental, we have made available a table that compare the technical characteristics and prices of magnetic therapy devices offered with our home rental service.
Whether it is rental or purchase, consider also the supplied accessories, often the quantity and type of applicators supplied can make the difference on the price. The warranty offered by the manufacturer is also a very important and indicative parameter on the quality of the product and the seriousness of the producer.

Magneto therapy for a stenosing tenosynovitis (snap finger) is recommended if the program is to be set to MAG2000. Thank you
Hello, one or more cycles of magnetotherapy are recommended to treat tenosynovitis, as it has an effective anti-inflammatory action. It can set the machine on a working frequency around 60-70 Hz. Kind Regards
Good morning, my husband has problems with hip pain in addition 4 bulging in the spine and pain in the knees, already operated. I was wondering if high-frequency or low-frequency magneto therapy is more suitable for him. In the past he has already done magnetotherapy with benefits. Now we would like to buy the car, we do not remember when we rented it if it was a high or low frequency car ... Thanks
Good morning, absolutely low frequency, like these that you find here: https://www.sanitariailgiglio.com/?s=i-tech+lamagneto&post_type=product
Good morning, my mother is elderly and has a problem of arthrosis + knee joint; found a very useful night-time magnetotherapy mat rented at home. Can you recommend a product to do at home to continue the treatments cyclically and place on the bed to do during the night? Many thanks
Definitely choose a low-frequency magnetotherapy device, and since you are comfortable with it, it also gives you the possibility to connect an applicator to a mat (which is usually considered optional). For localized problems such as that of his mother, it is still preferable to use a band applicator as it allows to make therapies much more localized than the mat. It can be oriented on devices for Magnetotherapy of the Globus, or of the I-Tech, like the MAG 2000 or the Mag 2000 Premium (the difference with the MAG2000 is in the supplied double band and in the guarantee that are 5 years instead of 2). They are all very robust, portable and already include the 3 solenoid strips. We remain available for more info about it. Kind regards
Hi, after a hammer toe surgery with percutaneous technique, do you recommend purchasing the Mag2000 since the fracture program is present?
The fracture program is present in most of the magnetotherapy machines because one of the most suitable applications is precisely those concerning the bone tissue (it can also read the benefits of magnetotherapy). The I-Tech Mag2000 is one of the most robust and widespread low-frequency magnetic therapy devices and it is no coincidence that many industry colleagues, including us, have been using it for many years as a Appropriate for home-based magnetic therapy. So the answer to your question is .. YES! In his casò, however, he can also evaluate the rental. In fact, in post-operative cases like yours, a cycle of a month or so can be sufficient and certainly less expensive. Ask your orthopedic for advice. A good evening!
Good morning, my daughter had a sprained ankle with partial tendon injury and a large alteration due to bone contusion was detected at the level of the talus. They recommended magnatotherapy for 6 hours a day. What appliance can you recommend?
Thank you and good day.
Good morning, definitely a magnetotherapy device with band applicator or with pair of cuffed solenoids, which can also be programmed for long lasting treatments. This device for magnetotherapy here he is calmly suited to his case. Kind regards
hi, I have a high kneecap problem with knee pain and difficulty stretching and bending the leg.
They prescribed a cycle of 20 magnetotherapy, which program to use?
Not all appliances are the same, but can refer to the list of programs attached to the use and maintenance booklet, supplied with its magnetotherapy device. The program must always be chosen based on the pathology to be treated. For example, if a cartilage has to be treated, the program to be used will be different from that used in case of pathology to the bone tissue, which will be different in case of trauma. Precisely for this reason, we can not recommend a specific program but it is good that it is your doctor to give precise instructions. If necessary, you can also refer to our short guide on how to properly use a magnet therapy device. Kind regards
hi, i had a severe sprain which caused me to tear my anterior cruciate ligament and the other inner leg.
while waiting for the operation, I use a low frequency magnetotherapy, I have a sixtus mag3 that in addition to the various programs I use the one created by me at 200hz and 100% duty, unfortunately in this model it is not possible to choose also the gauss, according to you it goes well how do i do it? thanks
Good morning, my wife has the fracture of 4 ribs due to a fall, I wanted to buy a magnet therapy device, which do you recommend and what are the costs?
Hi, you definitely need a low-frequency, high-power magnetotherapy device, therefore a high-end device. Since in your case you will need a mat applicator (or rather with an irradiating mat), the expected cost could start from a minimum of about € 500 to go up. However, you can get an idea of the prices at the links below. Alternatively, you can evaluate the rental, so as to save a good 30%. Sincerely

good morning, my son plays the guitar every day. Consequence of this is a constant and painful inflammation that sometimes prevents him from playing, creating great practical but also psychological problems. I would like to know what kind of magnetic therapy could benefit him and, eventually, what type of device to buy. thank you
Good morning to you. I remind you that it is always good practice to first visit a specialist to understand whether or not magnetotherapy can lead to inflammation. If you have already done so, a low frequency magnetotherapy device equipped with a band solenoid can shorten the healing time compared to another high frequency device; but since it is tendon tissue, both technologies can work well. In this regard, I link to you a couple of products that can do for you. Sincerely
I was diagnosed with a bone edema (bone marrow edema syndrome condyle femoral medial) on the right knee. The Doctor recommended a course of magnetotherapy but did not specify the frequency and power. Can you give me an indication of the parameters to be used? And a tip for the possible purchase of a device to be used at home?
Hi, you can set the magnetotherapy device at 30 Hz. If this does not give the possibility to manually set the frequency, please refer to the manual, choosing a similar program. For the knee, using a band applicator or a pair of solenoids, 50 Gauss of power will be sufficient. If you want to buy a magnetotherapy device, here you will find models suitable for the type of treatment you have to do. I advise you to choose a low frequency model.

Hi, for a microfracture to the malleolus how do you need to set up the appliance? Thank you
Hello and thanks for contacting us. Assuming you are using a low frequency magnetotherapy device, you can use the program called “fractures” for a fracture, if the device you are using has one. Alternatively, setting a frequency around 30Hz will work fine. As for the power to be applied, 30-40 Gauss will be more than enough. Sincerely
Good evening, I was diagnosed with a left hip agodystrophy with femoral bone edema. Is it possible to use the 40 x 40 cm mats or is the 160 x 65 mat better?
Hello, surely with a 40 × 40 mat the therapy is carried out in a more localized way, therefore more effective. Clearly both the patient and the applicator must be as still as possible during the cycle. Furthermore, if the magnetotherapy will be carried out at night, I advise you to turn up the power of the device in order to compensate for any movements during sleep. Sincerely
Hi, I bought the MAG 2000 device for the magnetic therapy treatment of a humerus fracture, I am using it with the belt in the 50 Hz and 60 gauss fracture program for 5 hours per day while I sleep. I wanted to ask you if you think it is better to use the bonnet solenoids than the band.
Thanks so much
Hello, Both types of applicators can be used to heal a fracture. The important thing is to be able to comfortably use the band, making sure that the 3 solenoids inside are positioned exactly above the area to be treated, so as to fully exploit the generated magnetic field. Sincerely
Hola me he comprado el aparato MAGIA 2000 para el tratamiento por magnetoterapia de a de fractura de humero estoy using the faja en el programa para fracturas a 50 hz and 60 gauss during 5 horas diarias mientras duermo. y quería preguntarles si creen que es mejor usar los solenoides de bonete que la faja.
Thank you very much.
Hi, I suffer from spondylarthrosis and considering that I am 'only' 42 years old I am motivated to treat it as effectively as possible. More specialists have suggested me to use magnetotherapy and considering the chronic and degenerative nature of my problem, I would like to buy the best possible device. I have no budget problems and therefore I would be very grateful if you could recommend the best possible product (s). Can you help me out please? Thank you so much!
Good morning, of course. The new line of I-TECH products can do for you as they are certified for treatments that respect the most modern rehabilitation protocols. While waiting for the opening of our shop, you can see the links below:
Meanwhile, thanks for the reply.
I noticed that there is the 650 euro pro model that goes up to 120 hertz. Forgive ignorance, does this mean that it performs better to some extent? Considering my problem, is it worth spending almost 50% more?
Good evening, the LaMagneto Pro model is a device designed for professionals in the sector such as physiotherapists. Unlike the suggested model, this one has some additional features that in its case would not lead to any further benefits, such as free programs that can be customized and memorized or the functionality of the screen lock (the complete features of LaMagnetoPro find them at this table of comparison of magnetic therapy devices. In reality, the Pro model also has a greater reserve of power, but it doesn't necessarily need it. To give you correct advice, I invite you to write us your address at the email address [email protected]m so you can contact her directly. Kind regards
I do 10 sessions of magnetotherapy for the knees and back twice a year. I would be tempted to buy an appliance as I have
knee pain frequently and would like to continue therapy at home. Can you tell me which device is best suited to my problem? Thanks
Good morning, for this kind of question it is preferable to talk about it verbally. If you send us an email with your contact details, we will contact you. Sincerely
congratulations on your very useful and usable site!
three months ago, following a fall, I broke the vertebra D 12, I did magnetotherapy for about a month with the MAG 2000 i-tech, the vertebra is welded, the orthopedist is happy with the outcome of the x-ray but now I have pain in my back, especially in bed, when I turn around or get up. My orthopedist hasn't been of much help!
I would like to shoot with the magneto but I have doubts about the program to choose from among the many offered by the device.
I'm 72, well worn, and a little bit of osteoporosis.
Dear Rosalia, thank you, I am pleased that your work is appreciated. Unfortunately, however, it is not really possible for us to give you advice to relieve your back pain. Indeed, magnetotherapy may not help you in this! The only advice I would like to give you instead, is to contact an orthopedic doctor who specializes in the spine, with whom to analyze and get to the bottom of your problem. Sincerely
Good evening, I found at the fair a magnetotherapy device that has both low and high frequency in the program, is it possible?
Hi, can you indicate brand and model?
Hello, I am trying Amel Medica's Magnetotravel device for free for a week. Can you tell me what the difference is between the normal devices that are on the market at much lower costs and if it is worth buying it? The preset programs last a maximum of 45 minutes.
Good evening. My son, 26, who has long since discovered that he has little cartilage in his joints, had to have an anterior cruciate knee surgery. Unfortunately the operation had complications (effusions in the whole leg), which took more than a month to be reabsorbed, with considerable pain on palpation. Now, 4 months later, he is doing physiotherapy + gym at a private center, 7 and a half hours a week, but progress is slow and painful, as in addition to the tendon that has been motionless for a month and a half, before starting physiotherapy, cartilage is also put in, or rather, the fact that there is little of it leads to uncomfortable friction between the bones, resulting in pain after a while. In practice, the afternoon can hardly move, except by enduring pain. In your opinion, could magnetotherapy help? and if so, which appliance and with which accessories? and used in what way? Thanks.
Magnet therapy was recommended to resolve a tibial periostitis.
Can I ask for advice on what a suitable device could be and what program to use?
Thank you very much
Hi even if I have only 48 years I have a beginning of arthrosis to the hips (coxalgia) and to the left also phenomena of sclerotization of the femoral head, all this due to functional overload or excessive body weight, even in the past I suffered from knee algodystrophy, not I had traumas. For a prolonged use in time to preserve or regenerate the bone tissue I wanted to know which appliance is more suitable, I assume something at low frequency, however what do you recommend? Thank you
Good evening, since October I have had a heel pain caused by a wrong pair of shoes. I have done several weeks of magnotherapy with no result. My device is called MagnetoSan energy for heelitis suggests the rheuma-analgesic program 12-50Hz + 27,12Mhz. 45 min. Having had no improvement, I wonder if it is of poor quality or if it is appropriate to use another program. Thank you for the reply
Hi Teresa, unfortunately we don't know the device she is using. In any case, as long as the therapeutic cycle has been prescribed by a specialist, it would be advisable to have sessions of at least 2 hours continuously. In this regard, I suggest you read our guide:
playing football I suffered a sprain of the left ankle with the distraction of the ligaments, consider that since January the ankle is swollen in the evening. For various problems I did only 20 days of magnetotherapy (renting a MAG2000) and 10 days ago the resonance still shows problems with a suffering of the cartilage. The orthopedist prescribed me 60 days of magneto, so given the rental costs I would be inclined to buy the device. Wandering on the Internet I found the MAG2000 for about 280 euros, but they tell me it is old now and they recommended the WELLMAG.
What do you think? You could tell me the best solution according to you.
Hello, we have no experience with Wellmag. From what I see it is a battery operated, single channel, dealer branded product. I honestly don't even know if it's a Certified Device. The MAG 2000 is now a device with a few years on its shoulders, but in our opinion anything but old! The double channel, the high power output and the wide availability of programs make it a product that is still able to satisfy most of the home-based requests, including yours. At the moment the parent company also produces the Premium version, with the same characteristics but with a double radiating band and a 5-year warranty, which you can see here:
Thanks, I'll take the Mag2000.
You were very kind and quick in response.
Hi Luca, if you have difficulty recovering it, please contact us. Kind regards
Hi, I should treat an edema of the cancellous bone tissue of the lateral femoral condyle and of the lateral tibial hemiplate, with moderate intra-articular effusion. The orthopedist prescribed me 15 sessions of magneto to be repeated after 3 months of suspension. I rented the MAG2000 from a health care that pre-set the “knee osteoarthritis” program (50 Gauss and 45 Hz) to be done for as many hours as possible (he also told me 6 hours at night). Do you think this is okay or do you recommend another setting? Thanks
Hi Franco, I advise you to set the machine to 70 Hz. For the power, 50 Gauss is fine if you use the pair of headphone solenoids, or better get to 60-70 Gauss if you are dealing with the three solenoid band. Kind regards
Thanks Daniele ... I have the band with the 3 solenoids ... so 70 Hz and 60 Gauss ... but what would you recommend about the duration of each daily session? Thanks again
Good morning, following pain in the Achilles tendon, I had an ultrasound and subsequent physical examination. I was diagnosed with mildly thickened Achilles tendon as from inflammatory component tendinopathy without evident peritendinous effusions or images attributable to partial or complete lesions. In addition to the treatments with Tendisulfur gel and sachets, I was advised to have a magnetotherapy treatment (at least 4/6 hours per day) and a rehabilitation program with 3 sessions of extracorporeal shock waves. Collecting information I was convinced to buy a high frequency and low intensity device, which seemed to me the most suitable for my problem, but in some orthopedics shops they advised against it saying that now almost nobody uses it and that it could be risky ...
As for the extracorporeal shock wave sessions, should I do them before resorting to magnetotherapy or afterwards as my doctor says?
Thank you. Greetings.
Hi, following a fall on a motorcycle, I underwent an operation for the left upper arm, a displaced radius and ulna fracture, with the insertion of a titanium plate, as well as a composite fibula fracture in the right leg. I am 58 years old and fortunately fiscally healthy. I have read several articles on the net about a multitude of devices, what you recommend. I would like to rent a Mag 2000 as it has a low frequency and can be used simultaneously for both diseases.
Thanks for the advice. Greetings.
Good morning Paul and thank you for contacting us. Since it is a fracture in both limbs, it can treat both the forearm and the fibula with the same program, so a Mag 2000 will certainly do well. Sincerely
I was diagnosed with an Edema of the spongiosa of the medial condyle of the knee, and the orthopedic doctor recommended 30 days of high frequency magnetotherapy…. I didn't understand if the MAG 200 can fit, or should I orient myself on the MAG 1000?
I thank you in advance
Hello and thank you for contacting us. For the reabsorption of edema and in general for all pathologies associated with bone tissue, it is advisable to use a low-frequency device, so as to accelerate recovery times. You can get more information about it in the following article: https://www.vemrent.com/come-scegliere-un-apparecchio-per-magnetoterapia/ Yours sincerely
Good evening. Due to a fall I suffered a compound fracture of the patella and now the orthopedist advised me to do magnetotherapy to strengthen without specifying whether at low or high frequency.
What do you recommend?
Good morning, for fractures and bone tissue in general, the advice is to use a low frequency device. Yours sincerely
I have a problem of coxarthrosis from focal necrosis of the femur head. I was advised magnetotherapy for 60 gg. I would like to buy the most suitable tool for my problem. What do you recommend?
Good morning and sorry for the delay in replying. In your case, you need a low-frequency device that can handle medium-high powers, given the depth of the area to be treated. You can find your way around the model at the link below, recommended for intensive treatments even lasting 12 hours. If you need more information about the device, you can contact the store directly, they are our partners.
hi I would like to know if magnetotherapy was recommended for epicondylitis in the arms but I am under the iov for neo tumor removal the iov doctor advised against it but I would like to know if it can affect molecules in a dangerous way thanks response cordial greetings
Hi, I confirm that in the presence of active tumor processes, it is highly discouraged to perform magnetotherapy. Kind regards
Hello, x knee problems (both waiting for prostheses, when I am convinced) the orthopedist advised me to buy I One Igea magnetotherapy device. Unfortunately, as an inexperienced person, I'm afraid of making a mistake! 12 euros per day of rental or 1300 euros for purchase! Looking online for information, I came across your site. Could you give me some advice? Since I would have to use the device for long periods I was inclined to buy and not to rent, but I am undecided and, honestly, I would like to spend less! Thanks if you want to answer me!
Hi and thanks for contacting us. The I-One by Igea is a magnetotherapy device widely prescribed by doctors, even if it is really very expensive. I refer you to a comparative table between this model and the Mag2000 by I-TECH (also a bit outdated in performance by more modern and performing models):
As you can see, the comparison is unequal and, given the price, I honestly would not have valid arguments to convince her to take Igea. In his case, since he has to take care of both his knees, I recommend a model with a double band supplied and that gives the possibility of making sessions of at least 6 hours. The two models below can do just fine in your case:
Between the two, the first is sold with a 5-year warranty, the other is recommended due to the pre-installed updated programs and multi-user functions. Sincerely
Hi I suffered a semi-open fracture a little wide in the 5 metatarsal and I was put in a cast for 25 days then at the check-up the fracture not completely closed I was in plaster for another 30; days, after the visit was made again the fracture was almost closed, a very small piece remained opened, they removed the plaster and told me to do physiotherapy and magnetotherapy, in your opinion is it right? Is the instrument I rented and set 25hz and 25g okay in your opinion? I do it about 10 hours a day
Hi, the treatment that they recommended makes sense, because applying pulsed magnetic fields helps the reformation of the callus and therefore the post-trauma course. The set parameters are fine, but even 6 hours may be enough in your case. Sincerely
Hi, does the IGEA I-ONE device work as iontophoresis? Is it comparable with the GLOBUS Genesy 300 or Genesy 600 products?
Hello, the I-ONE is a magnetotherapy device, not an electro-stimulator for iontophoresis. Sincerely

Hi, for a 79-year-old person with 4 and 5 lumbar vertebra injury, which magnototherapy device do you recommend? what are the costs?
Hi, I apologize for the late reply. I recommend a low frequency appliance with a pad applicator, so you can comfortably make night sessions. This could be a good choice:
Hi, I suffer from Hoff's disease which leads me to have constant knee pain. Could you tell me the right magnetotherapy whether high or low frequency? And consequently the right device. Thank you
hi good morning, as i can read here among the many needs i see that cunning doctors only recommend the one of igea. same thing for my bone edema in the heel.
now I ask you with a view to purchasing a magnetotherapy product, you recommend an article valid for different applications in the sense that I will be able to use it in the future also for various other possible pathologies, since there are products that are adjustable in power and intensity.
Hi Katia, “universal” devices do not exist, but certainly there are some that can respond to a very wide range of pathologies and needs, even in the long term. I recommend a low frequency device, which gives you the possibility to connect different types of accessories. One of these is the I-TECH LaMagneto, which unlike the excellent MAG2000 is equipped with a greater number of programs, even updated compared to previous models. You can find it at the following link (they are from our I-TECH authorized reseller partners)

after the last surgery ... I was better before!
I am 80 years old since 25 October 1940. My consu-in-law benefited from IGEA for rent and wants to continue buying the tool. I would like to buy one indicated by you, immediately. I would think of a dual channel with contemporary applicators. I would like to extend the application to the shoulders which also ache down from the arms. I await feedback, thanks. Milan 12 May 2021.
Dear Corrado, thank you for contacting us. Please send us your telephone number at [email protected], so that we can contact you to advise you in the best possible way. Kind Regards, Daniele
I underwent an external meniscus transplant surgery and I am in possession of a GLOBUS Magnum XL PRO, which I bought 1 year ago after making a selection (also by consulting your comparison table). Now the doctor who operated on me recommends I-ONE Igea because he claims that it is the only one that has given scientifically proven results. However, I think I can at least program the GLOBUS with the same parameters as the I-ONE. What do you recommend to do and what parameters to set?
Hi Fabio, I-ONE by Igea is not the only device with scientifically proven results. Your Globus is an excellent device certified as a Medical Device by the Ministry of Health, on a par with the Igea, I-TECH devices and many other manufacturers. It is therefore scientifically proven, tested, and above all safe! Furthermore, since we are talking about it, I can say with certainty that its Globus is much more performing than the I-ONE, which, although it is an excellent device, uses outdated technology and does not have many of the features of the Magnum XL, which limit could be compared to I-TECH's MAG2000. If you want to take a look, here is a rather comprehensive comparison table:
Regarding your treatment, use an anti-inflammatory program and you will see that it will bring the expected results.
Hi, I have a fracture of the D12 vertebra now calcified. My orthopedist recommended magnetotherapy treatment. Do you think you need high or low frequency braces to decrease pain? As for the therapy time per day, did he not specify the hours? Could you advise me?
Dear Gertrud, to treat fractures to the spine you need a rigorously low frequency device, which allows you to perform 8+ hour high power night sessions using an irradiating mat. Treatments other than those written above will be uncomfortable and with a high probability of ineffectiveness, given the depth of the area to be treated. You can consider renting the following device by selecting the mattress option.
If you want to buy it instead, you can consider the following:
