Hexapolar Q magnets
This group of magnets are Hexapolar. A hexapolar Q Magnet has 6 alternating poles on each side of the magnet. It is a static magnet made of the highest quality rare earth neodymium magnetic material with a 1.35 Tesla or 13,500 Gauss rating at its strongest point and Energy Product of 45 MGOe (N45).
Compared to Quadrapolar magnets, the addition of two poles adds to the undulating magnetic field thus expanding the influence on target tissue.
This fluctuating magnetic field has been shown to affect cell membranes of nerves in a very special way. Within minutes of exposures, nerve cell action potential and irritation is reduced. The resulting effect is like taking a fast acting pain reliever that gets better at relieving pain over time. Patients have noticed changes in their pain levels within 15 – 20 minutes. The pain relief increases and continues the longer the magnets are on the affected area. Practitioners can use these magnets as loaners to patients in between treatment seasons or sell to the patient for self-care after their course of treatment is completed.
We recommend using the Q-Magnets with the Asiamed Nylon Kinesiotape. The tape is smooth, lasts for long time on the body and provides an additional layer of fascial stretch in the region.
Note: The Q-magnets have a “flux plate” on one side of the magnet. The flux plate is a barrier that helps to project the magnetic field downward. In addition, the flux plates are printed with an arrow that when placing the magnet on the affected area the arrow should be facing up towards the patient’s head for proper alignment of the filed. The printed side of the magnet is up and facing you when the magnet is applied.
The different diameters and thickness influence the area and penetrating depth of the magnetic field. The larger the diameter and thickness of the magnet results in increased depth of magnetic field penetration and surface area treated. See chart below for details of width, thickness and depth of penetration.
