Study Confirms Effectiveness of Magnetic Therapy in Pain Relief

In a study entitled Optimization of Static Magnetic Field Parameters Improves Analgesic Effect in Mice published in Bioelectrocmagnetics 28: 615-627, 2007, the Hungarian Academy of Science finds multiple static magnetic fields utilizing Gradient Medical's QuadraBloc™ design to be optimal and to have an analgesic effect of greater than 80 percent.

Memphis, TN (PRWEB) September 25, 2008 -- The Hungarian Academy of Science has found the patented static magnetic field (SMF) configuration used in Gradient Medical's QuadraBloc™ to be the optimal configuration and more than 80 percent effective in providing pain relief. The QuadraBloc™ is a device that produces a unique static magnetic steep field gradient that when properly applied, results in both immediate and long-term analgesia for successful [pain management __title__ pain management].

"The static magnetic field optimization study conducted by the Hungarian Academy of Science adds to the growing body of scientific evidence that this particular static magnetic field can provide pain relief," said John Townsend, president of Gradient Medical. "We believe that the findings of this new study will generate greater awareness in the international scientific community regarding the potential applications for the QuadraBloc™ technology. This static magnetic field optimization study is intended to to define the optimum field and to then provide an insight into the magnetic therapy benefits of a non-drug, non-invasive, non-contact, non-pain, and non-addictive method for providing analgesia with both immediate and long lasting effects, based on the stimulus of the endogenous opioid network."

The Hungarian Academy of Science used mice to test the analgesic effect with a variety of static magnetic fields. An experimental group was injected with acetic acid and exposed to static magnetic fields, while a control group was injected with the acid but not exposed to the magnetic fields. The researchers then used the writhing test to measure how much pain the mice felt, determined by how much they writhed. Based on the study's data, multiple QuadraBloc™ static magnetic fields were found to be the optimal SMF configuration and to have an analgesic effect of more than 80 percent.

This optimal arrangement of static magnetic fields, as indicated by the study's results, is the foundation for the QuadraBloc™ [magnetic therapy __title__ magnetic therapy]. The QuadraBloc™ is designed to generate this unique static magnetic field such that, when the device is placed directly over the targeted nerve, the steep field gradient disrupts the nerve's pain signals to the brain. Rather than simply dulling the pain, as do over-the-counter and prescription drugs, the QuadraBloc's™ magnetic field literally alters the electrochemical transduction of the pain signals..

"This study shows that pain relief does not require pharmaceuticals with potentially dangerous side effects," Townsend said. "In many cases the QuadraBloc™ magnetic therapy offers both a low cost and substantial pain relief,with neither the potential side effects nor any risk of addiction."

About Gradient Medical
For more than a decade, the QuadraBloc's™ creators have been pioneers in the field of magnetic therapy. After AmWay's 10-year license for the QuadraBloc's™ predecessor, the MagnaBloc™, expired in April of 2008, Gradient Medical was established to manufacture and sell a more powerful design. Since the analgesic properties of this unique static magnetic field were first discovered at Vanderbilt University, scientists and researchers at other universities around the world have independently confirmed the effectiveness of the QuadraBloc.™ For more information about QuadraBloc™ and other magnetic therapy products by Gradient Medical, visit .
