Q: My father in-law suffers very badly from arthritis of the knees, to the extent that he is virtually housebound as he cannot go up or down the flight of stairs leading to his home. He is taking various medication for other medical matters and has had to stop taking the strong pain killers and anti inflammatory tablets as they were causing a serious problem. As a wearer of a magnetic bracelet and a firm believer in its therapeutic properties I would be grateful if you could advise me on the best thing to get and what strength to look for. Unfortunately I do not think he is likely to wear the strap above the knee. Sandie Reed (21.09.05)

Hello Sandie,

Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately the knee straps would have been the best thing, especially as we now do them in a super strength version which would have been ideal for your father in law's serious condition.
They can be worn either above or below the knee and are made from a soft neoprene that fastens with velcro, so they are comfortable and adjustable. The straps are only an inch wide (approx) and are full washable at 40 degrees.

If he did'nt want to wear these then he would have to just use single magnets attached to the knee with elastoplast or micropore tape or some other kind of surgical tape. He would need 4 high strength magnets on each knee (2600 gauss each).

The magnets should be worn all the time, day and night, just removing them for bathing, swimming etc. So the straps could easily be undone and then put back on whereas the single magnets would need to be reapplied every time the tape started to un-stick.

Drinking magnetised water will also help. The magnetism from the water is easily and quickly absorbed into the body and the blood. The effects of drinking at least 4 glasses a day are incredible. It will increase the effects of any magnets used on the outside of the body, particularly important in this case, and also improve circulation. It can also help with high
blood pressure, high cholesterol, the control of blood sugar levels in Diabetics, IBS, crohn's disease, diverticulitis, colitis, eczema, psoriasis, stress and anxiety.

If you need anymore information please get in touch.


Hello Dee

Many thanks for your reply, one more question. If I could convince him
to wear the straps would they need to be worn every day in the same way I wear my bangle or would he only put them on when things begin to flare

Hello Sandie,

Thanks for your reply.

At first he should wear them all the time. Once he has relieved his pain then he can take them off and just wear them when he has a flare up, but definitely for the first 3 months he should really wear them 24 hours a day 7 days a week if at all possible.
