Explaining Gauss
Gauss is the most misunderstood and misused word in the field of magnetic therapy. Magnet strength is measured in units called Gauss. For comparison, the natural magnetic field of the Earth is about half of 1 gauss. The average "refrigerator" magnet is about 10 gauss. Magnets used in therapeutic products vary from about 100 gauss to 2,500 gauss. The strength of a magnet is dependent on the size, weight and shape of the magnet.
