Device Selection – Which magnet to use? Quadrapolar, Hexapolar, Octapolar or Concentric

 

Q Magnets offer four different types of multipolar magnets to choose from…

  1. Quadrapolar powerful neodymium magnet with flux plate – 4 alternating poles
  2. Hexapolar powerful neodymium magnet with flux plate – 6 alternating poles
  3. Octapolar powerful neodymium magnet with flux plate – 8 alternating poles
  4. Concentric weak flexible rubber magnet – circular alternating poles

Dowsing, divining and magnetic fields.

.

Did you know that a dowser, walking along divining for water, is actually sensing changes in the earth’s magnetic field? If you were able to shrink right down to miniature size and move across the surface of a common bipolar magnet, there would be no change in the magnetic field and it’s said to be uniform or “homogeneous”. Whereas, if you were able to walk across a Quadrapolar magnet, there would be large changes and the magnetic field is said to be non-uniform or “inhomogeneous” and produce magnetic field gradients.

One of the key factors in optimising static magnetic fields for therapeutic effects is incorporating magnetic field gradients which require multipolar magnets. See “How Q Magnets work” for more details.

Effects of Moderate Static Magnetic Fields on Nerve Conduction and its Relevance to Q Magnet Therapy

Pages on the Q Magnets  website such as “how Q Magnets work” and “magnetic field gradients” describe how inhomogeneous static magnetic fields (iSMF) affect nerve fibres. A recently published study provides further confirmation of the physiologic effects as we have described.

Okano et al. (2012) The Effects of Moderate-Intensity Gradient Static Magnetic Fields on Nerve Conduction. Bioelectromagnetics. 2012 Mar 16.
PMID, doi

SUMMARY:
The effects of SMF on nerve conduction are unclear and the underlying mechanisms not well understood. This study focused on the effects of a moderate (iSMF) on membrane excitation and refractory processes on frog sciatic nerve fibres.

Review of the NCCIH misleading review of magnets for pain. Yes we agree. GET THE FACTS!

NCCIH (formerly NCCAM) recently used the modern communication method of Twitter to tweet their outdated review of the science and evidence for magnetic therapy. Their information page has the title “get the facts” and since they managed to leave out the most important facts, we felt compelled to write the following explanation.
