FAQs

The core of Bioflow technology lies with our Central Reverse Polarity ‘CRP’ field – a strong, multi-directional force of magnetism. Unlike standard magnets, Bioflow’s Central Reverse Polarity magnet has three poles. When blood passes under this multi-directional field, cells experience an agitating effect. It is this effect combined with magnet strength that is essential for the product to be effective.

The relay magnet is an additional magnet that is smaller than the main magnet. It is placed in the strap of Sport Twin, Explorer, Executive, Windsor Leather and Elite to increase the overall depth of magnetic field – providing an extra ‘boost’ of magnetic therapy.

All Bioflow products (excluding the Classic) measure in excess of 2000 gauss on the main magnet module. The Classic measures in excess of 1750 gauss.

 

More than one magnet does not mean that the gauss is multiplied (as many other sellers imply). The gauss remains the same as it is spread over a wider area.

Bioflow products are alternative or complimentary health products and use magnetic therapy, which is verified as ‘no health risk’ by the World Health Organisation.

 

Because of the increasing popularity of complementary and alternative medicine, the medical profession is constantly learning more about these non-conventional approaches.

 

When doctors use the term ‘alternative medicine’ they are referring to practices not usually used in conventional Western medicine. When an alternative medicine therapy is used in addition to (not instead of) conventional medicine, it’s called complementary.

 

  • Although we receive plenty of testimonials and reviews detailing how Bioflow products have helped people and their pets, there is no guarantee they can work for everyone. We will not make any claim that any of our products will prevent, cure, mitigate, treat or diagnose illness.

 

  • There is no substitute for sound medical advice and we recommend that if you are concerned about a health issue, you should consult a doctor or medical professional.

 

  • Our products conform with the highly regarded Medical Devices Directive and have approval as Class 1 Medical Devices in the UK and Europe. We are proud to display the CE mark on our Lifestyle and Sport ranges.

As long as our water care guidance is followed (see the next question), then the strength of our Bioflow magnets are guaranteed for life.

 

 

Our silicone sport wristbands are waterproof.

 

All other Bioflow products are water resistant and will withstand being out in the rain or washing your hands. They are not suitable for any kind of prolonged water exposure or submersion (e.g. showering, bathing or swimming).

We offer a 6 month guarantee against faulty parts and workmanship on our silicone sport wristbands and a 12 month guarantee on all other products. If you have a problem with any of our products please contact us.

Bioflow bracelets and wristbands are best worn comfortably around the wrist. There is no need for it to fit tightly around the wrist or to touch the skin for the wearer to benefit from the magnet technology.

 

Measure around your wrist using a tape measure or print out our sizing guide which you can find on our Wear & Care page. If you are between sizes we recommend that you go up a size. For example, if your wrist measures 18cm then you might want to choose a Medium Sport wristband.

 

Bioflow wristbands and bracelets can be worn with the module on top or underneath the wrist.

In very rare cases some people may experience an adverse reaction to their Bioflow product.

 

Silicone

Bioflow Sport wristbands are made of silicone. Silicone allergy is rare but those who experience it may have symptoms such as rashes and inflammation. Often, any reaction experienced is non-allergic and can be resolved or prevented by following our wear and cleaning guidelines here

 

Nickel

The base metal used in Bioflow bracelets and wristbands may contain trace elements of nickel. It is therefore possible that a small number of people who are hypersensitive may suffer a reaction.

 

If you start to experience redness or skin irritation on your wrist, remove the product. If symptoms persist longer than 3 days of not wearing your Bioflow, please contact your GP.

 

It is not possible to experience an allergic reaction to the magnetic field.

If you have a mechanical movement (a watch that needs to be wound, or automatically rewinds itself) you should wear Bioflow on the opposite wrist as your wristwatch.

Yes, you will just need to measure your ankle accordingly.
