Why are Magna-Pak's prices so much lower?
many of our own products and source the balance directly
from the source. We market our products direct to the
customer and through various retail outlets and
Magna-Pak Resellers. Nikken is a Multi-Level type of
marketing company that sells exclusively through
distributors. There are at least 6 layers of distributors to
pay off on each sale, plus the company itself. This
marketing method dictates their high prices.
Magna-Pak's Magnetic Mattress Pads compare to Nikken's magnetic"Kenkopad"?
Magna-Pak's primary concern is the magnetic effect, hence, we
manufacture our pads to provide a pure "North pole effect" over the
complete sleeping surface.
Our Tru-North magnetic mattress pads offer at
least 4 times as many magnets as any comparable Nikken system, and at
MUCH lower prices. We feel most people have a comfortable mattress pad
at home, and just need a comfortable magnetic layer to place on top of
|Where does Magna-Pak get their
magnetic mattress pads
||For our US/International customers, we ship from the USA, using the
finest fabrics and foams, with the strongest North pole
ceramic magnets available. For our Canadian
customers, we ship from Canada using the same quality
Tru-North Visco Pillow Top series with Memory
foam is the most advanced mattress pad available today.
|Why does Magna-Pak not offer a solid foam
convoluted magnetic mattress pad like Nikken?
||Magna-Pak feels most people have a regular mattress they are happy
with. Simply placing a
Tru-North mattress topper will convert an
existing bed mattress into a superior therapeutic sleeping
surface at a fraction of the cost.
|How about quality and customer assurance?
||Both Magna-Pak and Nikken offer product warranties.
However, Magna-Pak goes further, we offer the best product guarantee in
the industry. Magna-Pak magnetic mattress pads are covered by a 6 month
(180 day) satisfaction guaranty, keep the free gifts no matter what. Quite simply, we want your purchase to
work for you. Magna-Pak offers all retail customers a 30-day trial
period on all magnetic products except as noted*. Our
Guarantee allows you ample time to see if your investment in your health
is doing the job you expect and deserve. *Please Note: Insoles, books,
pet and equine products are not eligible for refund.
|Why does the Bipolar pattern
produce a shallow magnetic penetration
||Bipolar means both magnetic poles are present on the
same side of the magnet. Since opposite poles attract, the
poles are attracted to each other, thus the magnetic effect
is diminished. This magnetic effect is known as
"self-inducting". In measurements with a gauss meter at 3/8"
distance away, the magnetic effect of the bipolar material
has diminished to 2 gauss, a unipole ceramic magnet (pure
north side of a magnet) would still produce 2 gauss at a
distance of 3".
|Many companies, including Nikken, claim their bipolar
pattern is the best. What are the facts on this?
||The fact is, not one clinical study has been performed to
prove the efficacy of one pole pattern vs. another. All clinical studies
to date have compared a magnetic product to a non-magnetic product
(placebo). Some researchers have used mathematical equations to prove
the magnetic potential of one magnetic pole pattern vs. another.
However, the fact is the strength of a magnetic rubber pad is purely and
unquestionably related to the amount of barium ferrite (iron) powder
that is mixed in with the rubber during the manufacturing process. The
magnetic field pattern from any given design is quickly diffused and is
undistinguishable at the level where magnetic fields are biologically
interacting. Just like the filament inside of a light bulb, the filament
can be twisted into any given shape, but when the light switch is turned
on, they all emit the same glow.
|How Do Magna-Pak's Bracelets
compare to Nikken's?
||Magna-Pak sources the
bracelets directly from the manufacturer, which is why
we are able to pass on the savings to our customers.
Magna-Pak sells link bracelets and titanium bracelets
similar to the braided stainless steel and titanium link
bracelet that Nikken sells.
Magna-Pak's link bracelets
contain a North Pole magnet in every link, to ensure maximum
|Is Nikken the
oldest company in the magnetic business?
Magna-Pak was incorporated in
1981. Nikken, a Japanese company, came to the US in 1989 and to Canada
later on. Other companies have been manufacturing electromagnetic
devices in Europe since the 1960s.
insoles better than Magna-Pak Insoles?
Well, they do have a much higher price and offer a similar
magnetic effect, but are not nearly as comfortable as the standard
Magna-Pak magnetic insole. We also manufacture
Genuine Leather Magnetic
Insoles and we consider these amongst the best in the world. These are
made from the finest natural leather and are still less costly.
|Does Nikken offer Equine or
Pet Magnetic Therapy Products?
||It is limited. Magna-Pak offers
a large line of
Magnetic Therapy products.
|How does Nikken's "Elastomag"
support wraps compare to Magna-Pak Magnetic Neoprene supports?
Neoprene Supports feature Velcro closures. They are lined with a
unique material to help wick away moisture and feature ceramic #8
magnets (3950 gauss). Each product comes with a "Magna-Patch" that
allows the user to custom locate a larger #8 magnet for more targeted
applications. Value is second to none. Price is second to none.
|Nikken states they
have exclusive magnetic products, is that true?
||The only exclusive magnetic products they have are the Magboy
and the Magcreator. They are good products but only work when rolling
the devices over the body. Other products, such as
battery powered electromagnetic devices
that offer variable
frequencies (more effective) and can be used for long periods with no
effort, making them superior therapeutic devices.
