The MegaPulse Mat Applicator is a great addition to any MegaPulse system. The other applicators are best used to target injuries or specific areas of the body. The rope and other applicators can be used this way but only the mat is specifically designed for human or small animals general wellness or targeting chronic illness. This makes the mat the perfect accessory for any home or clinic. A good treatment method is to combine a targeted applicator and mat. This may increase the target effectiveness and provide a more homogeneous treatment.
