  1. New Independent Study at 2 Leading Universities using Tectonic® Magnets 

Magnet Field Penetration

Magnets may start out with the same Gauss ratings, but that is where the similarity ends. Now an independent study conducted at two leading universities in New York City proves that there is a great divide in the breadth of magnetic action between Unidirectional Therapy Magnets and a major competitive brand using Bipolar magnets.
This study examined the decay of a magnetic field in air. Since magnetic permeability of all human tissues and fluid is identical to that of air, these measurements reflect the actual magnetic field at various tissue depths in the human body. 

There are other significant differences between magnets, ranging from size, depth of penetration, the manner in which they are applied, as well as the quality of material used in containing the magnets. Whereas the precise relationship of depth of penetration to bio-affectivity has yet to be determined. Certainly, "not all magnets are created equal." Above article by Magnetherapy, Inc.

  1. Unidirectional Magnets

These magnets are a flat surface type with the Positive pole on one flat side, and the Negative pole on the opposite flat surface. The Positive side is usually marked with a red color. The NEGATIVE is usually indicated by a GREEN color-coded sticker. The GREEN NEGATIVE side is always the side placed toward the body. Unipole magnets are strongly recommended for therapeutic usage.

  1. Bipolar Magnets

Bi-polar magnets have positive and negative poles on same surface.
Bi-Polar Magnets A cluster of small bi-polar magnets achieve surface power at their top and center, at the expense of a rapid decay in magnetic field penetration.
Commonly described as bi-polar positive and negative poles on same surface, over-arching polarities attract one another over small distances on the same side of a magnet or may even attract opposing fields from adjacent magnets, -- intercepting and diminishing the thrust of energy as it flows toward a target site, thereby limiting depth of penetration.

  1. Ceramic Magnets

CERAMIC: (I.E.: 3/8" - 1/2" thick) deep penetration, head, back, spine, etc.

  1. Flexible Magnets

FLEXIBLE: (I.E.: 1/8" thick) medium penetration, larger muscle groups, back, neck, shoulder, etc.

  1. Neodymium Magnets

NEODYMIUM: (I.E.: Neo-Dots) Short range penetration, finger, toe, TMJ

  1. Dot Magnets

Dot Magnets are very small magnets that can be taped on your finger, toe, ear, face, neck. They can rust if not gold plated. 1200 gauss

  1. Water Magnets

Magnets are used to treat water in pipes to prevent scale build up on the inside surface of boilers, and other containers in which water is repeatedly heated and to treat water in pools.
