How are Q Magnets different from other magnets advertised in print and TV?
Q Magnets are a static magnet field generator. Although the field is static, there is steep variation of the field gradients in three dimensions. If the gradient could be altered by moving the poles apart and increasing the distance between the Q Magnet device and its target (for example, a cell under study), the effectiveness gradually diminishes. When the gradient is below threshold amplitude, there is no effect. Many magnetic field therapies on the market are common bipolar magnets (with a north and south pole on each side) and as such do not create a field gradient. Such devices have had little or no effect in cell assays in which Quadrapolar magnets have had substantial biological effects.
