Lunchtime Research Review – BEMER Rug by Dr Gillian Tabor
Have you heard about the Bio-Electromagnetic Energy Regulation Blanket, known as BEMER?
It is a relatively new equine therapy device and in the Dr David Marlin Facebook Group, we have questioned the claims made by the manufacturers and reps. But now there are two new studies published, using BEMER in horses! I will review the papers and look to see if there is evidence to support their claims.
