Dave Balzer from Nikken did a technology call a couple nights ago to introduce the new SpyderRAM technology and I wanted to share a few of the things that I learned on the call.
The first thing he shared was how magnets work. I never really thought about it then I realized that a lot of people probably don’t really know this. The good thing is that just like you don’t need to know how gravity works to use it, you don’t have to know how magnets work to use them either.
A magnetic field is created when the atoms in a material, like iron, are aligned.
That’s pretty simple, and pretty darn powerful too. The more alignment you have within the magnet, the more powerful the magnet is. That’s why the Law of Attraction is called the Law of Attraction. Like a magnet, the more internally aligned you are with your goal, the stronger your ability to attract your desired outcome.
A static magnet is naturally aligned internally and doesn’t need any external influence to achieve or maintain that. An electromagnet, on the other hand, requires an external electrical current to force the alignment in the material to create a magnetic field. Once the current goes away, the alignment goes away and the magnetic field fades away.
The “bad EMFs” are those magnetic fields created by an electromagnet powered by alternating current (AC). The alternating current creates an alternating magnetic field. I wrote another post about this recently: There Are Bad EMFs. Are There Good EMFs?
Dave Balzer then went into a quick history of Nikken’s magnetic technologies leading up the the new SpyderRAM nodes.
In 1975 pioneered magnetic technology for the body and invented the magnetic insole and the magnetic sleep system. They developed and sold their first magnetic insoles back in March 1975 in Fukuoka, Japan. The original KenkoPad magnetic sleep system followed in April 1979. As much an icon for Nikken as the Magsteps insoles, the Magboy came in September 1987.
Some of the magnetic technology iterations that Nikken has used include:
- EQL Magnetic Technology – magnets laid out in an equilateral triangle pattern to create consistent magnetic coverage over the entire surface. The Magsteps insoles are an excellent example of EQL Magnetic Technology
- Field Gradient Technology – individual magnets spaced to create a landscape of peaks and valleys of magnetic energy. The Dream Comforter, KenkoSeat Plus, and Magboy are examples of this.
- Biaxial Magnetic Rotation – bipole magnetic spheres spinning on 2 axes to create a dynamic, spherical magnetic field without the side effects produced by electromagnets. This technology is in the Biaxial PowerMag.
- RAM or Radial Axis Magnets – recreates a smaller version of a spherical magnetic field similar to that of Biaxial Magnetic Rotation without moving parts. The RAM nodes are used in the Naturest Mattress Topper.
- DynaFlux Magnetic Technology – layers of magnets with the poles placed in opposition to each other to intensify the magnetic field and create a magnetic field that extends farther from the surface. This is incorporated into the new PowerChip.
- SpyderRAM – This is an expansion on the RAM nodes used in the mattress topper.
Like I just said, the SpyderRAM nodes expand, literally, on the RAM node. The RAM node is encased in a disk about 1.25 inches in diameter. The SpyderRAM node is about 4 inches across and composed of 4 remote magnetic spheres attached by silicone arms to a central magnetic sphere. The poles of each sphere are rotated out of alignment with the other spheres to create overlapping magnetic fields.
The new Naturest Travel Pillow incorporates a SpyderRAM node at the back of the pillow where it will sit against the back of your neck. Using the new travel pillow will place the magnetic fields of the SpyderRAM node where they can interact with the spinal cord, the the energy meridians in the neck, and the erector muscles at the back of the neck.
So there you have it, Nikken’s entire magnetic history in less than 700 words.
PS. Share your experiences with Nikken’s magnetic products in a comment below. I would love to read them and someone else may benefit from them. If you don’t have an experience yet, then check out the products I mentioned above and have an experience.
