When can I expect to feel the benefits?

Some people experience relief the very first time they wear the Meridian Glove. Others may see results over the course of a week. Just minutes a day are all you need, customers often wear them while they sleep.

How many magnets are in each glove?
See the image on the left. The gloves have one Long magnet running along the underside of each finger and two along the palm for a total of six magnets in each glove.

How strong are the magnets?
The magnets are rated at 600 gauss but penetrate much deeper than most magnets that have higher gauss ratings. BIOflex® magnets have the ability to “reach” into the tissues of the body at a greater depth than other magnetic designs. The feature of alternating poles of variable width ensures that the magnetic field will “reach” further away from the surface of the magnet than will the magnetic field of a magnet whose poles are closer together. BIOflex® magnets are designed to provide the proper gauss deep within the tissues.

What sizes does the Meridian Glove come in?

The Meridian comes in 3 crossover sizes: Junior/Petite, Small/Medium, and Large/Extra Large. Please click here to see our sizing chart.

How far back should I extend my fingers?

The hand should be perfectly flat when the straps are pulled back. The straps are adjustable to allow for a more comfortable experience. Just do what is comfortable to you. Gradually you will notice your hands feeling better and better each day.

How do the BioFlex® Medical Magnets work?

The magnetic field causes the blood vessels to dilate, increasing circulation, thus accelerating the natural healing process.

Are all Medical Magnets the same?

NO! These are not refrigerator magnets-these are medical magnets! BIOflex® is the ORIGINAL magnet manufactured specifically and exclusively for human medical use. Only BIOflex® offers concentric circle magnets, guaranteeing accurate alignment with the affected blood vessels. This revolutionary patented technology ensures the deepest penetration of the magnetic field to the affected area.BIOflex® is the only medical magnet with sound, scientific proof of its effectiveness.

Why are the thumbs not covered?

The thumbs are left free to allow for ease of use when putting on the gloves. To apply to the thumbs simply loosen the finger straps and hold thumb area with the opposite hand. This will apply the power of all six magnets to the thumb for optimum results.

I am pregnant. Will the magnets affect my baby?

The induction of an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is usually about two to three Tesla, about twenty to thirty thousand Gauss. Use of MRI during pregnancy is considered safe for the developing fetus. This demonstrates the level of confidence with which one can use BIOflex® products which range from 300 to 800 Gauss.

I have a pacemaker. Can I use the magnets?

Since the magnetic fields may interfere with the switching mechanism in a pacemaker, use of any magnetic products near this device is not recommended.

My husband/wife/partner has a pacemaker. If I use the magnets, will it affect him/her?

As long as the magnets do not come in direct contact with the area that the pacemaker is in, it is safe to use the magnets with caution. However, use of mattress overlays and/or car seats is not recommended.

Can I use the magnets around my computer and other electronic equipment?

The magnets can be used around the computer and other electronic office equipment with care. Do not place magnets directly on computer. Do not let magnets come in contact with credit cards or other cards that utilize a magnetic strip for scanning, video tapes, or computer diskettes, etc.
