The Vmax Pulser 2 is a private labelled dual mode machine sold under more than a dozen brand names around the world. The Pulser 2 has two modes of vibration, low frequency pivotal, and spiral vibration. Spiral vibration has no benefit to a user and scientists have recommended that users choose pivotal or lineal only. For this reason, we do not give any consideration to the spiral mode specifications. The company selling the Vmax make various false advertising claims and as such fail both the Company and Warranty badge. The support provided with the Pulser 2 is minimal and low quality. Overall I would warn against spending on a machine like Pulser 2.
The Pulser 2 scored a total of 26 points, which is a fail on the Performance badge. The Pulser 2 is a low frequency range pivotal machine ranging from 3Hz to 15Hz, and a maximum amplitude of 9mm at the edge of the platform. Their is a spiral mode on the machine also which has no effect due to the sideways direction of the vibration instead of vertical direction. Their is no frequency display on the Pulser 2, just speed levels which is not useful.
The Vmax brand has not been studied and since the Pulser 2 failed the Performance badge, Pulser 2 fails the Science badge completely.
Vmax Fitness falsely advertise their frequency and G force specifications, and provide incorrect information their technology type (tri-planar is not spiral). Vmax also provide incorrect information about their company (e.g. claim that they are product designers), the product (e.g. claim “world’s first”). Vmax Fitness have been selling WBV since 2009. The Pulser 2 is a private labelled machine, so no points awarded for innovation and there is no sign of any charitable program by Vmax Fitness. Overall Vmax Fitness fail the Company badge with a score of 25.
The Pulser 2 fails the Warranty Badge due to also failing the Company badge, with a score of 21. As explained in our methodology, a warranty is only as good as the company behind it, and Vmax Fitness leave a lot to be desired. The Pulser 2 has a standard 2 year warranty with 5 years on the motor, but offers an extended standard warranty of 2 years. There is no returns policy. Spare parts are warehoused locally but no onset servicing is available.
The Pulser 2 comes with below average support and failed on the Support badge with a score of 20. With the Pulser 2, you receive a DVD, a poster and a user guide. No online resources, no courses or workshops are provided. A business phone number and live chat are provided for communication.
