"The delivery of static magnetic fields through a magnetized device directly applied to a pain trigger point or to a localized painful area results in significant pain relief within a short period of time (less than 45 minutes in our study) and with no apparent side effects. Based on the results of this study and reports in literature of the effect on people with arthritis, it appears that magnetic field energy may be useful in the management of pain in individuals with other types of impairments that are commonly treated in primary care settings/"

The Colbert Study
"Sleeping on a magnetic mattress pad with a magnet surface field strength of approx. 1100 gauss, delivering 200-600 gauss at the skin surface, provides statistically significant and clinically relevant pain relief and sleep improvement in subjects with fibromyalgia. No adverse reactions were noted during the 16 week trial period."

The Man Study
All patients in the study received liposuction surgery from the same doctor and were divided into two groups of 10 patients, one group had active magnetic patches the second group had inactive sham devices that looked exactly the same and placed exactly the same way.
The results of the study were stunning. In the treatment group with active magnets there was;
- Statistically significant reduction in discoloration.
- Statistically significant reduction in edema (swelling)
- With the pain measurement, pain was found to be significantly decreased and
patients took notably fewer pain killers.
There was no difference in the incidence of complications in both groups and no side effects were observed.

Dr. Michael Weintraub's Study
Use of magnetic insoles for diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
Of the 10 diabetic subjects 90% experienced statistically significant reductions and/or resolutions of their symptoms of burning pain, numbness, and tingling.
