Application of magnets in the medical field

With the continuous development of science and technology, magnets are more and more widely used in the medical field. These applications mainly include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnet therapy, magnetic medicine, magnetic stimulation and so on. The development of these applications not only greatly promotes the progress of medical technology, but also enables patients to receive corresponding treatment and assistance.

1. Magnetic resonance imaging

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive, radioactive medical imaging technique that is widely used in clinical diagnosis and research. The working principle of MRI is based on the principle of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). By generating different and measurable magnetic field signals, high-precision and high-resolution images of human tissues and organs can be obtained. MRI technology has a wide range of applications in the detection of tumors, cardiovascular diseases, nervous system diseases and so on. Moreover, MRI imaging provides clinicians with more diagnostic options, reducing the need for patients to undergo multiple diagnoses.

2. Magnet therapy

Magnet therapy is based on the influence of magnetic field, using magnets to produce physiological and therapeutic effects on human cells and tissues. It can restore the balance of the human biomagnetic field and the nervous energy system, relieve and treat the local pain of the disease, and improve the state of the internal environment of the human body. This therapy is a non-invasive and safe treatment method. Magnets can be used for treatment by direct suspension, using high-frequency magnetic pulses or liquid cold iron magnetic therapy, and using magnetic fields to facilitate drug delivery. It has been successfully applied in the treatment of cervical spondylosis, frozen shoulder, lumbar spondylosis and other diseases.

3. Magnetic drugs

Magnetic drug is a drug delivery system that combines drug carriers and nano-magnets, releases drugs to the necessary parts of the human body through the action of a magnetic field, and precisely controls the dosage and time of administration. This new type of drug delivery system can improve the precision and effectiveness of drug delivery, reduce the dosage and side effects, and improve bioavailability, which has become a hot research field. It has a wide range of applications, such as targeted therapy of cancer, treatment of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and improvement of the effect of drug therapy. In addition, there are magnetic drugs that control blood flow, among other functions.

4. Magnetic stimulation

Magnetic stimulation is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate the nervous system to treat, prevent and regulate nervous system-related diseases. Magnetic stimulation mainly uses a changing external magnetic field to generate an electric field, which induces the excitation or inhibition of nerves.
Common magnetic stimulation methods include Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation), Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and Magnetic Focusing (MF, Magnetic Focusing).
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a method of affecting the human nervous system by stimulating the activity of neurons on the surface of the scalp with a magnetic field. By changing the strength, frequency and direction of the magnetic field, the cortex of the human brain can be stimulated, thereby affecting the process and mechanism of neurotransmission. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation is a method of relieving pain by stimulating nerves on the surface of the skin with electrodes, which induces an electrical contraction and a rise in the pain threshold. Magnetic focusing is a method of changing the polarity of cell membranes through a localized magnetic field, thereby affecting cellular physiological and metabolic processes.

The application of magnetic stimulation can improve and alleviate many nervous system-related diseases, such as depression, anxiety, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, stroke sequelae, etc. The advantages of magnetic stimulation are non-invasive, high safety, significant effect, and few side effects, etc., and it also has certain therapeutic value for some diseases that are not effective in traditional drug therapy. In addition, compared with other stimulation methods, magnetic stimulation has a clearer target and more precise treatment, which also lays the foundation for its wide application in the medical field.
In conclusion, as a clinical treatment method, magnetic stimulation has excellent characteristics such as high curative effect and good safety. With the continuous innovation and development of technology, magnetic stimulation will become more diverse and play an important role in the treatment of more diseases.

client purchase strong magnets"Since 2006, we found Mr.Guo and get products from him. We used magnets under the earth for the gas and water pipe industries. We have met no problem. We have been working in very happy ways. We have many cooperation. Every year, we spent time together and sometimes, we invited him to Korea. He is our younger brother. Strongly recommended!!"
