A well designed study has found that wearing a magnetic wrist strap or copper bracelet had no practical value for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The study involved 70 patients who were randomly assigned in various sequences to wear a standard (1502 to 2365 gauss) magnetic wrist strap and three control devices: a demagnetised (<20 gauss) wrist strap, an attenuated (250 to 350 gauss) magnetic wrist strap, and a copper bracelet. No differences among the groups were found for pain, inflammation, disease activity, disability, or medication requirement patterns.

Rayma Balance Bracelet – ASA breach ruling

Continue Reading 2

Posted 16 July 2012

Rayma Balance Bracelet placed an advert in a newspaper making the same unsubstantiated claims previously ruled against by the ASA. Rayma appears to be deliberately ignoring the ASA’s previous rulings – not surprising considering that the claims being made for this bracelet makes no physiological sense at all. The ASA agreed with a consumer complaint that this was a breach of previous ASA rulings, and ruled against the company with the institution of sanctions but suspended for a period.

Rayma Balance Bracelet scam – ASA breach ruling

Continue Reading 2

Posted 10 May 2012

In a ruling dated 8 June 2007, the Directorate ruled that the respondent’s advertising for Rayma Balance Bracelet created a misleading impression that the bracelet will relieve pain when used by anybody, which was not proven and therefore unsubstantiated.

However this appears to have made no impression on Mr Mervyn Daitz of Topline Innovations who continued to make these nonsense claims, and deceive, cheat and steal from consumers by selling this simple scam. More than that, read the ruling carefully – the ASA appear to call Mr Daitz a liar, but not in so many words. If you are a consumer who purchased this product, I urge you to ask for your money back. If you do not get it, ask the small claims court for redress, or the CPA, or even lay a charge of fraud against the company.

Who is Mervyn Daitz, and who is Topline Innovations? 

“Topline Innovations, a company founded by Mervyn Daitz 27 years ago. Mervyn, an expert in the health and beauty industry, is always on the lookout for high quality products to help improve people's health and beauty.”

Sounds marvellous, except this company is responsible for the marketing of a number of unsubstantiated products, including one ruled twice against in previous ASA ruling: the RAYMA Balance Bracelet.

Mervyn proudly writes: “The business started in 1984 when Mervyn was introduced to the TDK Bio-Magnetic necklace, a pain relief accessory. Many years later while on a visit to Spain he saw the enormous success and extraordinary results of the Rayma balance bracelet. After seeing the fantastic results for people suffering from pain, these two products became the foundations on which Topline Innovations was based. Both products are still available Read the rest
