There are three different types of multipolar Q magnets to choose from…
- Quadrapolar – 4 alternating poles
- Hexapolar – 6 alternating poles
- Octapolar – 8 alternating poles
(See table below)
What they all have in common (and what sets them apart from common bipolar magnets) are interpole boundaries that produce steep magnetic field gradients. This is where the research suggests the main pain relieving and tissue healing properties of a static magnetic field reside.
The research clearly shows that Quadrapolar magnets have physiological effects that are not shared with your common bipolar magnets.
