Therapeutic Effect of the Biomagnetic Health Mattress in a Double-Blind Tests
A Double-blind test was conducted on 431 people, approximately one-half male and one-half female, 375 with magnetic mattress pads and 56 with non-magnetic mattress pads. The magnetized mattress pad used 104 Biomagnets each. The following chart shows results for the various ailments treated at the hospitals based on 99 percent confidence coefficient:
|Neck and shoulder pain (stiff)||56.83||85.95%|
|Back and lower back pain||68.49||92.04%|
|Lower limb pain||66.76||92.06%|
More than 70% of the subjects realized effect within 5 days, 53.33% within 3 days, for a total effective rate of 48.28% to 58.38%. The conclusion was that the Biomagnetic Mattress Pad proved to be effective in a high percentage of cases and with no adverse side effects as measured within the testing period.
In November 1997 a leading Medical hospital in Houston, Baylor College of Medicine, conducted a Double-Blind Test by a group of medical doctors. The Results were 75% of the people realized effective pain relief for arthritis and post-polio pain.

Three other studies of 400 subjects were conducted in 1976 by professors Akio Yamada and Shuwichs-Hirose of the faculty of Medicine, University of Tokyo, Professor Yamamoto, University Juntendo, Tokyo, and Kioshi Kurmshima, Kohnodai National Hospital. Symptoms were for pain in the back, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, legs. Effectiveness fell in the range of 60% to 80% with a time frame of seven to fourteen days. No side-effects were detected. A double-blind study of 80 subjects to relieve lumbar pain was conducted by Dr. Yoshia Oay using belts with magnets of 1500gauss. 50 subjects were given strong magnetic belts and 30 received placebos belts or belts with 200gauss magnets. With full strength belts, almost all showed a very marked improvement or marked improvement; wile with the weak magnets or placebos, none of the subjects showed a very marked improvement and only 23% showed marked or minor improvement.
