1. Good , well known brand. Since you are dealing with your personal body health , you only want the best
2. A device that comes with a stand so that it can be kept a safe distance from small children and pets. Also one that does not come in the way of elders or persons who may have limited mobility
3. Select the wattage and look for specific uses. For example a low wattage and low heat lamp may be good for sensitive or smaller areas , whereas a higher wattage may be good for bigger and broader areas
