The present study was carried out to examine the bone healing effect of a magnet as the feasibility test for clinical application. The surgical technique of tibia puncture was performed with male Sprague Dawley rats for investigating radiological and histological findings. The treated group was attached the magnet, and control group was attached the placebo magnet for 4, 6, and 8 weeks respectively. The rats were taken a radiograph for examining radiological findings on 2-weekly interval for 8 weeks. Also, the rats were partly euthanized for investigating histological findings on 2-weekly interval from 4 week to 8 week. In the magnet treated rats, the healing process of bone trauma was positively stimulated to compare with control rats.
