Erase My Back Pain

Neodymium magnets can be described, first, by Erase My Back Pain Review the 'core strength' of the material - the magnets come in several grades. However big and powerful or small and weak the magnet, its core strength in gauss remains the same. So if the magnets are tiny, this figure is used. Second is the flux (magnetic field strength) at the surface of the magnet, and this is most often quoted for big magnets, when the gauss number is higher than for the core strength. And third is the flux at your skin. Even the thickness of plating or a plastic cover needs to be taken into account, because flux drops dramatically as you move away from the magnet. This is the key figure, but it's rarely quoted except maybe when they're comparing a rival's skin flux to their own core strength - naughty! So it's almost impossible to tell how powerful a magnet is from quoted figures. The only useful test is to see what force the magnet pulls at that point, and this is how testing equipment works. You can do it yourself - use a bunch of keys (the ring is steel) and see how it pulls, or a recent UK copper coin (which has some iron in it), and compare one magnet with another. For example, a typical bracelet magnet won't even lift one penny, whereas a magnet of useful flux will hold up a chain of four pennies (each coin at least doubles the power needed) and be maybe 30 times as powerful. Both have the same core flux, usually about 1800 gauss, that the sellers quote. And that brings us to Bioflow. The Bioflow Advantage Unique among therapy systems, Bioflow mimics the hospital equipment by using both large, high power neodymium magnets and flux changing. The maker, Ecoflow plc, discovered flux changing for fuel economisers and patented it, before finding that it also applied to therapy. This led to Bioflow being designed for use on the wrist.
