Frequently Asked Question: How does your
Mattress pad compare with the Other sleep systems?
Lyon Magnetic Health Products sells both
Gold and a Silver Series Mattress Pads. Both pads are made of the
highest quality foam for long lasting durability and are covered first
with a waterproof fabric and then a removable, washable cotton/poly
To compare to other companies we can look at our
LYON Silver series mattress pad, which in many cases has the same size magnets that
these competitors use. The first difference is that ours have 900 gauss magnets
(surface gauss) and most of the others claim to have 750 gauss magnet in their pads.
The next notable difference is that for a
pad to be truly effective it needs to complete a circuit throughout your
body and not allow any south pole from the bottom of the magnet to come
around and reach your body. To block this south pole the magnet spacing
is extremely important. So, if spacing and magnetic content is too low
then the south pole is wrapping around seeking the north pole and you
end up with both poles entering your body which much expert research has now said is not good. Even
other competitors have now begun to make
their pads with north pole magnets facing the body. The problem is they
have not considered the magnet spacing issues.
Our magnet quantity in the Silver series
is over triple the some of these competitor pads
The numbers of magnets in our products
Twin size--630 magnets,
Full size--865 magnets,
Queen size--960 magnets,
King size--1255 magnets!
Our Gold series has about half the
magnets of our Silver series but they are much larger (6 times larger)
and twice as thick, providing about 3 1/2 times more penetration into
the body and effectiveness (See
Lyon Effectiveness Rating). For people wishing to improve
their health and lifestyle we recommend the Silver. For those with
serious issues, or those wanting the best for themselves, the Gold is
the best choice.
