Gradient Medical recently started offering QuadraBloc™, a new and improved version of AmWay's MagnaBloc.
Memphis, TN (PRWEB) July 2, 2008 -- AmWay's MagnaBloc™, a long-popular form of pain management, is now available in a new, stronger form: QuadraBloc™, offered by Gradient Medical.
"QuadraBloc has already been released in the United States, and will be available worldwide within 60 sixty days," said John Townsend, President of Gradient Medical, LLC. "We will also be releasing several new products within the next few weeks."
Put simply, the QuadraBloc uses magnetic principles to disrupt the transduction of the electrochemical pain signals to the brain. QuadraBloc uses not one but four magnets and a focusing ring placed in a square or diamond pattern. For maximum pain management the QuadraBloc is placed directly over the irritated nerve, where the gradient of the magnetic field has the strongest impact on the nerve's pain signal.
"QuadraBloc is between two and four times stronger than MagnaBloc," Townsend said. "This technology offers an alternative for superior pain relief for people with back pain, sports injuries, and other sources of chronic pain."
The principles that the QuadraBloc is based on were first published in Environmental Science in 1991. In addition, the device's effectiveness is supported by more than a decade of cell research at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and at the Center for Pain Research and Neuromagnetics at the University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, as well as numerous other studies performed around the world. To eliminate the experimenters' biases, several of the studies done have been "double blinded," which is where neither the doctor nor the patient know which group the patient is in: the experimental group, which uses the QuadraBloc device, or the control group, which uses a "placebo" or a dummy device.
"The principles used in creating the QuadraBloc have been scientifically researched and well documented," Townsend said. "All of the results to date demonstrate that QuadraBlocs are safe, low in cost and remarkably effective in treating a large variety of aches and pains."
Townsend indicated that the product has not been approved by FDA, has been sold as an OTC product in 40 countries including the US and is not intended to obviate the need to seek professional assistance for health care professionals.
