How to Use
Dosimetry on the QF28-6 shows the alternating poles. The red segments represent recordings over the positive poles and blue the negative.
The small gap between the poles is where the opposite poles cancel each other out and the net field strength is zero. However, this is where the magnetic field gradient is steepest and the four clear lines represent the biologically active areas of the magnet.
There are two different models in the QF10 family, 10mm diameter Q Magnets - QF10-3 and QF10-2. While there is negligible difference in the depth of penetration between the two, the thicker the magnet, the denser and stronger the magnetic flux. So as a general rule, use the thickest device that is comfortable and practical to wear. In addition, the smaller the device, the more accurate the placement is needed. If the Q Magnet is slightly off position, the field will not reach the target tissue and it will have little or no effect.
The QF10-2 device is seen here (left) on the wrist.

Any of the devices can be sewn into or onto braces once the best placements have been determined. They can also be placed inside of socks or tubular elastic material such as tubigrip.
