Caution Around Magnetic Fields Near Computers and Sensitive Electronic Equipment…

Aug 13, 2013 | Training

 

Q Magnets are a rare earth neodymium magnet and one of the strongest static magnets known. The magnetic field produced by even the larger Q Magnets penetrate no more than around 2” or 5cm and even less on the side of the flux plate. Bringing sensitive medical devices such as pacemakers within this distance should be strictly avoided. Likewise keep your credit cards or any other magnetic storage device out of this range.

Placing any strong magnet on top of a spinning computer hard drive will likely destroy all data. But the newer solid state hard drives (with no spinning discs) don’t seem to be affected.

The same goes for the newer smart phones. Even though I knew this, my heart sank when I realised I had our largest Octapolar magnet OF50-3 and my iPhone in the same pocket. But as this photos shows, there doesn’t appear to be any adverse effects, but to be on the safe side, I wouldn’t recommend it.

Most people are able to wear their Q Magnets through airport security without incidence. This is important as they may help to alleviate back pain for many frequent flyer travellers including this rugby player.

Other contraindications, warnings and precautions on using static magnets as outlined in our Information and Instructions sheet…

 

WARNINGS:

  • Do not use if your doctor has advised against the use of magnetic devices.
  • Do not wear Q Magnets near sensitive medical equipment or implants such as pacemakers, dorsal column stimulators, infusion pumps, or any other magnetically programmable medical devices.
  • Do not use over transdermal patches.
  • Do not use Q Magnets on pregnant women.
  • Do not use Q Magnets directly on the skin underneath a heat pack as they can become very hot.
  • Do not apply Q Magnets to an open wound, however they can be used over the dressing.
  • This product is not a replacement for professional medical treatment.
  • If you are uncertain if these contraindications apply to you, consult your health care professional prior to use.

 

PRECAUTIONS:

 

  • Take care when handling multiple Q Magnets, especially the larger models, bring them together very slowly. Try not to allow them to snap together magnet to magnet as they can pinch your skin. They come with a white plastic separator which can be used to safely store them.
  • To separate Q Magnets that are stuck together, use a sliding or shearing force. Pulling them directly apart requires strong force.
  • Take extreme care to prevent any strong magnet from being swallowed by an animal or child. This is particularly dangerous if more than one are ingested as it can lead to bowel perforation and the need for surgery if they stick together while transiting through the digestive tract.
  • Do not place Q Magnets near computers, computer monitors, computer floppy disks, credit cards, magnetic access cards, audiocassettes or video tapes. Do not place on or near sensitive mechanical or electrical equipment. As with any magnet, it may damage them.
  • Tape and other adhesives can cause skin irritation in isolated cases.
  • If skin irritation develops due to allergic reaction to the device or the tape, discontinue use and or consult a health care provider.
  • Vitamin E applied to the skin prior to use (remove excess for adhesive to stick) will assist in providing relief from and/or preventing skin irritation.
  • If skin irritation or skin break down develops due to the adhesive, consult your health care provider.

Combining TENS and Q Magnets

TENS machines are thought to work by activating the fast-conducting myelinated nerves, such as A-Beta fibres and closing the Pain-Gate. Whereas Q magnets mainly inhibit the slow-conducting unmyelinated nerves, such as C-fibres. Combining the two modalities, can...

According to Dr Goiz, the biomagnetic pairing technique involves using pairs of bipolar magnets to balance pH, improve the immune system and overcome disease. Studies that show positive benefits for pain relief are achieved when multipolar magnets such as Q Magnets are specifically placed on areas such as trigger points and nerve connections.
