  1. Biolectromagnetic, Society Journal, June 1999

This study investigated the ability of permanent magnets to inhibit the formation and development of joint degeneration in a small sample canine osteoarthritis model that progresses in a similar fashion to human arthritis.

  1. Journal of Back Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation, Vol. 13, 1999

This study was implemented among 25 female subjects with diagnosed fibromyalgia and reports scales on pain-relief and sleep patterns by resting on mattress pads with Tectonic brand magnets vs. sham mattress.

  1. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

The responses of 20 patients who underwent suction lipectomy and post-operative magnetic field therapy were evaluated in this study. Tectonic magnetic patches were placed over the operative region of 10 patients and shams were placed over the same approximate surgically operated region of 10 others.

  1. Research papers from major universities and medical colleges have studied the effects of static magnets fields on pain associated with arthritis, post-polio syndrome and diabetic nerve damage.

  • Baylor College of Medicine, researchers found that magnets placed over pain trigger points resulted in pain relief in post-polio patients.
  • Tufts University School of Medicine study demonstrated that magnets helped relieve pain of fibromyalgia.
  • New York Medical College study showed that magnets helped treat foot pain in diabetics. 
  • Emory University study, depressed patients seemed to improve when treated with a mild magnetic pulse.
  • Several news reports have disclosed that other researchers are testing magnets for sickle cell disease and carpal tunnel.

  1. More research reports can be found in the many magnet therapy books.

Note: Consumers should not conclude that results of the above trials will be replicated in future studies or that the properties of other brands of magnets in size, shape and configurations will produce similar effects.
