A clinical study of Dr. Bakst Magnetic Super Back Belt was conducted in August 2007 by Marlowe J. Schneidkraut, Ph.D, D.A.B.T. and Charlotte Kiosea, Study Director, of Batts Laboratories, Inc.
The study shows that 28 volunteers with chronic back pain wore the Dr. Bakst Magnetic Super Back Belt for periods of 4 hours, 24 hours or 7 days. The selected volunteers did not use any other analgesic, treatments or therapies during the study period and were in contact with the Study Director on a daily basis.
At the conclusion of their study, Batt's Laboratories concluded that: "Application of the (Dr. Bakst Magnetic Super Back Belt) for four hours, twenty four hours, or seven days was associated with a significant reduction in the self-reported pain score when compared to pre-treatment values."

"...The magnetic field has the ability to penetrate through the skin. Correspondingly, different magnets have different depths of penetration through the skin. A ceramic magnet might have a depth of penetration of 1 to 1.5 inches.
If a nerve is superficial (near the surface of the skin) a ceramic magnet will be sufficient to control the pain impulse of that nerve. However, if the affected nerve is 2 - 4 inches deep, a ceramic magnet will be of little value. Only the neodymium magnets have the ability to penetrate that deeply..." Dr. Alvin A. Bakst, M.D
