Why do I need to keep the magnetic clips more than 2 inches (50mm) from my active medical devices?

Magnetic Headgear Clips

There are various types of active medical devices. Magnets may interact differently with each type of device. Typically, if a magnet is brought too close to the device, it will be temporarily switched to a “default mode.” However, the device should return to normal operation once the magnetic field is moved far enough away from the device, which is why we recommend keeping our magnetic clips 2 inches (50 mm) from active medical implants.
