The various articles posted for your edification refer to magnetic strength in mTesla. mTesla is 1/10 that of Gauss -Therefore a magnetic bracelet with a gauss strength of i.e. 33000 total gauss = 3300 mTesla or more than 10X the amount in the studies just released.
A synopsis of one article is quoted as follows:
"What the study means to you: There were few adverse effects, so if you're troubled by arthritis pain and have an extra $60 to $100 (no need to spend more), a magnetic bracelet may be worth a shot. Make sure the field is between 170 and 200 mTesla in strength, since that's the level that produced results in this experiment."
Additionally consider the following as well:
caveats: it's not entirely clear whether the improvement came from the magnets themselves or the placebo effect. even though this was a blinded trial, participants might have noticed whether or not they were wearing the magnetized bracelets (for example, if their keys stuck to the bracelet). the study group was also largely white, so the effects in other ethnic groups need to be studied. further studies are now necessary to see how magnets compare with pain relief drugs and whether the good effects persist beyond 12 weeks.
