How Q Magnets Compare to other Magnetic Products


Before comparing magnetic products one must first consider what effect they are supposed to produce on the body. For instance the magnets contained in jewellery are going to have completely different properties to Q Magnets and would not be comparing apples with apples. The majority of magnets sold with health claims are the same magnets used for industrial purposes that have simply been resold to the public, usually within braces or wraps.

Many websites make unsubstantiated and/or misleading claims and embellish their story in order to make their magnets appear somehow special or different. In nearly every case they are simply common bipolar magnets that might come with a clever way to wear them.

Q Magnets are not only different to any other magnet on the market, they are the only device we know of that is sold as a medical device, have their own unique serial number and all design elements have been based on scientific research and customer feedback. Q Magnets are used by health professionals around the world for the treatment of pain and to restore function.

The unique features of Q Magnets are as follows:

  1. They are a Quadrapolar, Hexapolar or Octapolar magnet with four, six or eight alternating poles within the one magnetic body and have been designed this way to produce steep magnetic field gradients. The research shows that it is not the magnetic field strength that is the determining factor in alleviating pain, but the field gradient.
  2. They combine some of the strongest static magnet material available, neodymium rare-earth with a 1.3 Tesla rating with the latest magnetising techniques to produce a compact but extremely strong therapeutic magnet that penetrates a stronger field gradient deeper into the body.

  3. The outer side has a flux shield attached which is made of high grade magnetic stainless steel which drives the field deeper into the body and further enhances the field gradient. This also insulates the outer side of the magnet so it is less likely to get stuck to steel items while they are being worn.
  4. The newest model has more curved edges so there is less chance of getting your fingers pinched if they clap together.
  5. The high quality sticker on the outside of the device displays the orientation arrow as well the medical device ARTG number as well as a unique serial number. Since every device has a unique serial number, we are able to implement our quality assurance program and fulfill our post-market surveillance obligations for medical devices.
  6. The magnets have extra strength plating to reduce the chance of scratching or breaking and most models come in either gold or silver to reduce the risk of skin allergies.

Some competing products claim to sell unipolar magnets, however unipolar or monopole magnets do not exist. Every magnet has a North or Positive pole, with a corresponding South or Negative pole. What they may be referring to is having only one pole facing the body and it is questionable whether there is any difference in using the North or South pole of a magnet on the body.

For an example of unsubstantiated claims, this company sells electromagnetic protection products and state in their sales literature that the FDA recommend a safe limit for magnetic field strength of 50 mT. If you actually look at the FDA document they reference, there are many glaring omissions. There was no noticeable effect with exposure to this magnetic field, but the most important was that the study was referring to a low frequency pulsed electromagnetic magnetic field and not a static magnetic field. We point this out as some customers inquire if Q Magnets are safe. The World Health Organisation recently issues a report that we have on our website that confirms that static magnetic fields under 2 Tesla are safe for humans.

Q Magnets are designed, tested and manufactured based on the latest scientific research to have the best possible therapeutic effect.
