HoMedics TheraP Faces Consumer Class Action


San Diego, CA: A consumer fraud class action lawsuit has been certified against HoMedics TheraP "Hot & Cold Therapy Back support with the Power of Magnets" claiming violation of the Consumer Legal Remedies Act (CLRA) and for violation of Business and Professions Code ("UCL").

The plaintiff, Fletcher Gibson, alleges that in January 2010 he purchased HoMedics TheraP "Hot & Cold Therapy Back support with the Power of Magnets for approximately $29.99 from Rite Aid. "I purchased 'TheraP Magnet Back Support' specifically because it was advertised that it had magnets that would help relieve pain," Gibson stated. "If I had known that magnets have no power to heal or relieve pain, I would not have purchased the 'TheraP Magnet Back Support.' I would have paid a cheaper price for a comparable product that did not contain magnets."

The suit claims that the class, represented by Mr. Gibson, was mislead by the claims of the defendant.

I have suffered with severe IBS for over 30 years. About 15 years ago I tried the HoMedics Thera P magnetic 10" x 5" pad and nothing relieves the muscle spasm faster or more reliably than this product. I place it over my abdominal spasm and within 30 seconds the muscle relaxes every time, whereas otherwise I will be in terrible pain for an hour or more. This magnet doesn't help my husband's muscle pain, but it works miracles on mine! Not all bodies react the same, even with medicines.

HoMedics Thera P knee support with 12 magnets is the most wonderful product ever invented. It works every time and my wife also used magnets for her back pain. With in minutes the pains goes down to a tolerable level. We can work and walk and take care of ourselves again.
We have had no ill effects from use. My wife has used them since her tumor in her spine. She says they have been life savers.
Thanks
