Trion:Z and Colantotte, award-winning magnet therapy and negative ion technology brands, are delighted to announce the donations made so far to their chosen charity, Help For Heroes (H4H).
The brands have been working with Help For Heroes since 2010, donating £3 from the sale of every logoed H4H wristband to the cause.
After a hugely successful two years working in association, the contributions have now reached an astonishing £13,464 (excl VAT) meaning an incredible 4,488 people have supported the charity through buying the product.
The money goes to the Help For Heroes charity who put it straight into providing direct, practical help for injured service men and women.
Launched in 2007, their great work has helped to open specialist hospitals and rehabilitation centres, grow the availability of counselling services for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and support relatives of loved ones affected by injuries in service.
The Trion:Z and Colantotte H4H product range was extended last year to offer more colours combinations to meet the growing demand for the wristbands.
Available in the brand’s original Dual Loop design and in five colour ways including black, red/white, blue/red, desert camouflage and forest camouflage, the H4H wristband retails at £20.99 through the Trion:Z website (www.trionz.co.uk).
Trion:Z UK Director, Paul Hendry said: “I couldn’t be prouder of our association with Help For Heroes, a fantastic and very worthwhile charity. The H4H wristbands are now one of our most popular products and we hope this is something we can continue to prosper with and support for many years to come.”
To celebrate Help For Heroes Day on Friday (28th September) free post and packaging will be offered on all items purchased through www.trionz.co.uk all weekend (ends Sunday 30th September).

Many companies claim to produce performance-enhancing products designed to ease your training, improve your game and outpace your competition. Without real facts and thorough research though, it is almost impossible to know which products can really help and which products are jumping on the bandwagon.
Colantotte Trion:Z was the original product in magnet therapy and negative ion technology gear when it was originally launched several years ago, but since then many competitor brands have come into the market without the credentials held by Colantotte Trion:Z.
The sports wristband industry as whole was turned on its head in late 2010 when Power Balance bracelets were revealed to be a scam with no medical benefit whatsoever.
The products until then had been endorsed by some of the World’s biggest sporting stars including David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The bands ‘worked’ using a hologram technology which supposedly increased strength and balance however this was all revealed as a con and the company were forced to file for bankruptcy.
Since then, many internet forums and exposés have set to shed light on the claims made by other companies but only Colantotte Trion:Z have the awards to back up their claims.
Certified as a medical device by Japan’s Ministry of Health and Welfare, a Class 1 Medical Device and CE-approved, Colantotte Trion:Z is the only brand of its kind to achieve this level of recognition.
In spite of these industry standards though, Colantotte Trion:Z is still unable to make direct claims about their benefits.
To be able to prove the effectiveness of Colantotte Trion:Z products, the company are taking part in clinical studies of patients with osteoarthritis affecting the hip or knee area.
The studies will split the 210 participants randomly into three groups, one of which will receive a Colantotte magnet therapy wristband, one will receive the same wristband with no magnetic properties and the third will receive no wristband.
The groups will record their scores on a questionnaire before the trial begins and after four weeks of wearing the wristband for a minimum of 12 hours per day.
If the clinical trial proves successful in reducing pain and stiffness, Colantotte Trion:Z products can then go forward to be recognised as a full European Medical Device as well as being submitted to the British Medical Journal (BMJ) in the UK, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in America.
Colantotte Trion:Z are determined they will get the results to prove their loyal customers right and be recognised without doubt as a credible choice in the sports and lifestyle industry.

With the prolific rise of magnetic therapy during the last 20 years or so, magnetic device manufacturers have been busy developing new and innovative magnetic instruments designed to target practically every area of the body.
As a consequence of the increased demand for magnetic treatments, there are various types, strengths and sizes of magnets available, some of which can be administered by individual themselves and others which must be applied and controlled by a health professional.
If you are unsure about what kind of magnets are typically used in magnetic therapy, take a look at three different types of magnets that are commonly used in magnetic therapy.
What have been referred to as being the ‘king’ of magnets, neodymium magnets are extremely powerful and comprise of three metals – neodymium, which is a rare earth metal, ferrite and boron.
Neodymium magnets are commonly used to treat soft tissue damage on areas such as the knees, shoulders, hip and back. The best quality neodymium magnets have a surface gauss of 1,200 and a core rating gauss of 12,300 and are known to hold their magnetic fields for up to 15 years.
Whilst they are much lower in their magnetic strength, having an approximate 2,750 gauss rating, because flexible magnets are, as their name suggests, extremely flexible, they are typically used on the toes, finger, wrists and ankles, areas where less penetration but greater flexibility is required.

One in five adults suffer from back problems at some point in their lives. Despite being so common, sufferers of back problems can be in extreme pain, unable to move with the freedom they were once used to, and desperate to find pain relief and a cure.
The typical causes of back pain range from lifting heavy objects, a sports injury, an accident such as a fall, bad posture, malformation of the bones, degenerative disease, or simply old age.
Doctors diagnose the root of the pain by examining whether the problem is muscular, nerve or skeletal related and prescribe a treatment that is most compatible in treating what is causing the back pain.
Whilst the most common treatments for back pain are drugs, physiotherapy and, in severe cases, surgery, magnetic therapy is becoming an increasingly popular method to effectively treat pain problems.
The two most common back pain magnetic treatments are Back Wraps and Dot Neodymium Magnets.
The Back Wrap
The Back Wrap is particularly effective for lower back pain. The wrap simply fits around the lower back and fastens with a Velcro strap. It can be worn for prolonged periods of time, even whilst the patient is asleep. Not only does the Back Wrap provide lumbar support and comfort, but the powerful magnets inside the wrap increase the flow of blood to the painful areas, and many back sufferers who have worn Back Wraps claim that pain has been significantly reduced since they started to wear the device.
On the Trion:Z website, you can buy a Colantotte Waist Belt, a good choice of magnetic therapy for back relief, The waist belt is designed specifically to focus the magnetic technology on areas around the waist, hips and lower back.

Magnetic therapy has long been associated with healing a whole host of health aliments, illnesses and diseases. From sports injuries, tennis elbow, arthritis, insomnia and many more aches, pains and conditions, utilizing the unique benefits magnetic fields can have on the body have been exploited for centuries.
Although using magnets for health and improving general feelings of wellbeing, such as increasing energy levels, is not as commonly associated with magnetic therapy.
On the contrary, exploiting the powerful healing capabilities of magnets, can leave even the healthiest of individuals looking better, feeling better, and even living longer.
With the Earth generating magnetism and the changes in the weather causing magnetism, it is a fact of science that we are surrounded by magnetic fields.
Asides the natural magnetism geography and nature provide, modern devices and gadgets that we are exposed to every day, such as computers, televisions, microwaves and office equipment, intensify the severity of the magnetic fields we are exposed to.
The human body itself produces magnetic fields which are generated by chemical reactions between the ionic currents in the nervous system and the cells.
According to many health experts and researchers, we can off-set the adverse magnetic changes the climate, technology, nature and our bodies expose us to with the use of magnetic therapy.
