The Platinum Magnetic Knee Support provides maximum knee pain relief, fully adjustable compression, and superior support for knee instability. Designed to help more severe discomfort from arthritis, knee sprains, post-surgical recovery, torn cartilage, and other painful injuries that cause weakness in the knee joint.
The Platinum Magnetic Knee Support contains the most powerful configuration of magnets found in any Therion magnetic knee support or brace. 14 high-energy 13,800 gauss neodymium and 4,300 gauss ceramic magnets are strategically placed along the sides of the knee, below the knee cap, and behind the knee. This ensures maximum magnetic therapy coverage around the entire knee joint for faster pain relief and healing.
Therion magnetic knee supports and braces are made with patented Acticel high-performance fabric. Acticel provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.
Acticel technology maintains an ideal comfort zone between your skin and the support at any level of physical activity, allowing Therion orthopedic supports to be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without perspiration build-up.
The Platinum Magnetic Knee Support opens flat, making it easy to put on and adjust from a sitting or standing position. Two tension straps provide fully adjustable compression above and below the knee, helping to reduce muscle strain and pain while you’re bending or walking. Spiral spring stays on both sides of the knee provide added stability and support, without restricting your movement. You’ll appreciate the additional support when walking with a weak or injured knee. Platinum gray color.
Did you know…Results from a 2-week, double-blind study found that applying magnets over painful knee joints not only reduced pain, but also enhanced physical knee function when walking.

About Magnetic Therapy for Pain Management
Do Magnets Have Healing Power? Alternative practitioners have long said YES, and recent studies suggest that they may be right. In a recent study published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, researchers at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston found magnets to be more effective than sham magnets at blocking pain caused by post-polio syndrome.
(This syndrome, marked by leg pain, affects up to 20% of polio sufferers later in life.)
In other studies, magnets have proven effective against:
- Fibromyalgia – Researchers at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston showed that magnets help relieve muscle pain caused by this mysterious condition. In the study, patients who slept on magnetic mattresses experienced greater pain relief than patients who slept on ordinary mattresses.
- More and more is being written about the use of magnets as a treatment for arthritis. Magnet therapy has many followers who claim spectacular results with carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and arthritis. This alternative healing method has been used since the middle ages. The application of magnets to a particular area of the body is believed to realign the body’s electromagnetic field.
- Diabetic neuropathy – In research conducted at New Your Medical College of Valhalla, magnetic foot pads were more effective than nonmagnetic foot pads at relieving numbness, tingling and pain associated with this diabetes-related problem. Evidence suggests that roughly 80% of chronic pain sufferers could benefit form magnetic therapy. That is true for virtually any form of pain.
Magnetic Therapy Provides Natural Pain Relief
Used around the world for centuries, magnetic therapy is ideal for pain relief. Whether you suffer from back pain, knee pain, arthritis, tendonitis, or even migraines, magnets are a safe, easy and effective method for achieving pain relief naturally. In most cases, magnets are placed directly over the area where you’re experiencing pain. Magnets can also be used on acupuncture points in different areas of the body.
Current research suggests that magnets affect ion channels which can reduce and/or block nerve pain signals. Ions are electro-chemicals that have either a positive or negative charge. Their movement through cellular gateways, called ‘ion channels’, controls pain signals, muscle contraction, and nearly all other biological processes. Ion channels can be affected chemically with drugs, manually with electrical stimulation, and naturally with magnets.
Using magnets for pain relief offers a huge advantage, because they’re safe, non-invasive, they last for a lifetime, and have no side effects. Research studies and doctors agree that you can use magnetic therapy as often as you need to. When high quality magnets are properly applied, they are effective up to 90% of the time.
About Therion Magnetics – The #1 choice of health professionals and consumers
When you’re in pain, you want real relief, in the least amount of time. Therion magnetic therapy products are your best option for:
- Safe and effective natural pain relief
- Helping your body heal faster
- Sleeping more soundly and waking up feeling refreshed
Most people don’t realize that to be effective the magnetic field parameters of every product must be optimized according to the body area and condition to be treated. If the magnets used are too small, too weak, or too few in number — they will have little or no benefit.
Therion magnetic products provide real relief, because they are carefully designed to provide the correct magnetic field strength, penetration, and coverage for each specific body area they are used for.
Therion medical magnets have exceptionally high magnetic energy ratings, and are much larger in size so they produce far more therapeutic energy. These increased therapy levels result in more effective relief of discomfort in a shorter amount of time.
About Therion’s Acticel High Performance Fabric
Acticel™ is a high-performance orthopedic material that provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.
The comfort problem with orthopedic supports
Traditional Neoprene supports provide excellent compression, but are non-breathable so they prevent heat and sweat from escaping. This causes over-heating and excessive sweat build-up, making them very uncomfortable to wear for more then a short period of time.
While having advantages over traditional non-breathable Neoprene in certain circumstances, “Breathable” supports provide minimal therapeutic heat benefit because of their uncontolled heat loss. This causes condensation of sweat, which cools the skin. At higher levels of activity, the support will eventually become soaking wet and very uncomfortable. There is also a significant reduction in the compressive and elastic qualities of the material.
What are the benefits of Acticel™?
Acticel™ creates a perfect therapeutic microclimate between your skin and the support by maintaining optimum therapeutic temperature and low moisture (sweat) at any level of physical activity.
This patented technology is why Therion orthopedic supports can be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without sweat build-up.
How does Acticel™ work?
Acticel™ uses a pattern of dome-shaped vapor chambers, each with a tiny hole at the top to replicate the way the leaves of a plant transpire (lose water vapor).
While resting, excess body heat and perspiration rise into the dome-shaped chambers and exit through the tiny holes at a controlled rate. The chambers flex and stretch with each movement of the body, causing excess heat and perspiration to be pumped out of the small holes. This also allows cooler, drier air to enter from the outside.
The unique pumping action of the vapor chambers increases and decreases with the user’s level of physical activity. This ensures that body heat, blood flow and compression remain consistent during a wide range of activities.
What is the science behind Acticel™?
Acticel™ technology is based on the laws of thermodynamics and diffusion where heat will always move from an area of high temperature to an area of low temperature; and water vapor will tend to move from an area of higher density to an area of lower density in order to regain equilibrium.
The unique design of the Acticel™ vapor chamber provides the required air space for excess perspiration to evaporate and collect as vapor. This creates the necessary conditions to establish a steep diffusion gradient at the tiny hole on top of the chamber, allowing maximum removal of vapor, while minimizing therapeutic heat loss.
5 reviews for Therion Magnetics Platinum Magnetic Wrap Knee Support
I received your magnets and last night for the first time in many moons I was able to go to sleep without being in a lot of pain. I also did not wake up during the night crying out in pain which was happening every night before using the magnets. The knee wrap started working quickly on my knee pain as well as the extremity wrap for my arm pain. I ordered more today including a mattress pad and I look forward to continued progress and healing. Thank you for such wonderful products, fantastic customer service, and quick delivery.
My life has changed immensely since finding Magnetic Therapy, I went through a couple companies until I found Therion. I really wanted support for my knee that was comfortable and unrestrictive, yet provided me the relief I needed. Well let me tell you, I found it in the Platinum Knee Support. Both of my knees are bad, but my left is worse and I wear this on my left knee to help me get through the day. I’m having both of my knees reconstructed in April, hopefully that will alleviate my symptoms for good! However for now, I can get through the days without having to stop because of bad knees!!!! Grandkids love it 🙂
Giving this a 4/5, for a reference anything I give 5/5 for would be something that completely alleviates my pain. Now, this does come close. Remember to be consistent and wear it everyday (thank me later). I really noticed the relief after wearing it It is very comfortable, and most importantly BREATHABLE. I actually view this as an investment into myself, a pain free knee is something to smile about
I just want to thank Frank for helping me pick the right product! The customer service here was so friendly, as soon as I got on the site they were able to answer my questions through the chat thingy. If you’re unsure about what to get for your condition, or if you are like me and buying for someone else – give them a call. This Magnetic Knee Support turned my husbands whole entire outlook around, and saved ME in the process!!!
This will be my second knee brace. I can only say that these work like a miracle for sore knees. I injured my knee running and have worn the wrap almost continuously for about a week or so and have had complete relief. I noticed that my left knee is beginning to hurt, so I am resigning myself to wearing braces on both knees whenever I run.
Thank you so much for your wonderful products and customer service. Your friendly attitude and good advice are treasured.
