LINX Magnet Manufacturing

Does anyone know how the magnets used for the LINX magnetic sphincter are manufactured? The reason I ask is because these magnets are designed to last a lifetime so I would think that they wouldn't demagnetize as quickly as other magnetic implants.

  • Well demagnetizing isn't really an issue. If you're having a loss of strength that generally means your coating has failed. On the other, these are really intetesting. I'm going up order one to check out.

    Thank you for correcting me, I had read it was demagnetization in a news article. I hope you learn something worthwhile after purchasing one.

  • Just ordered one of these. Ill tell you about it once I get it in hand.

    Anything?
  • Yeah. Ive got a write up Ill share soon. Also look into the FENIX system.
  • Theyre pretty cool devices.

    Yeah I read about those. It's like the LINX band, but for incontinence.
  • Still writing this up, but if you search through patents that j&j has filed since ethilon bought out Torax.. there's some cool tech on its way. Renal vessel controllers and whatnot.
