The embedded uni-pole therapeutic magnets with 1000+ gauss allow the body to follow its natural healing process, which most would agree is the ideal way of recovery.
The magnets and compression of the support may aid the human body by assisting with the maintenance of peripheral circulation increasing oxygen to the affected area. Studies have shown that magnetic energy passes through all material and affects all living things, hence its ability to affect pain. *
