Does it matter which side of the PEMF coil is touching the skin?

1. Yes. One side has an imprint of BN. I remember the BN should be BODY NEXT TO to remember what side goes down. Also remember BN is the first and last letters of Body down.

2. YES! This matters. It's already been answered above but I want to stress this importance, especially if using the PEMF wand for treating infections or illness. The BN (bio-north) emits a negative magnetic field. So obviously, the opposite side is the positive side. If you place the positive side over an infection, you could make it worse. Positive magnetic fields have been shown to increase cellular growth, especially in pathogens. Please do not make this mistake. You could do 10 sessions using the BN side of the PEMF coil and then one session where you accidentally use the opposite side can cancel out any benefit you may have had or make things worse.

Now if you are using the PEMF wand for healing injuries like broken bones or torn tissue, there is some evidence that in certain cases, using the bio-south (positive) field will be more beneficial but if you are untrained in the use of magnet therapy, it's a safer bet to just stick with the BN.

There's a lot of conflicting information on the topic but here is an excellent article.

3. When connected to the Spooky2 Central, the orientation is important. The SC uses a polarized output, so you will want to aim the PEMF coil with the BN side towards the body. This ensures that the output matches the North Pole or Bio-North as it is called. This carries with it a negative magnetic field bias which has been shown to be better for the life processes than a positive oriented field.

When connected to the XM or GX directly, since we are using an alternating current, either side will work as the field is constantly flipping.

If you happen to use an offset due to custom programming, then use of the BN side towards the body would be recommended. Additionally, if you use an offset, -100 / 100 would be ideal (Out 1 / Out 2, with inverse + sync in effect).
