The magnetic field generated by the Superconducting Maglev has no impact on health, as it is controlled with various measures to keep it below the standards established in international guidelines (ICNIRP Guidelines). The standards are set at approx. 1/5 to 1/10 the level that could affect the human body.
The Superconducting Maglev has magnetic shields on vehicle and passenger embarkation / disembarkation facilities to keep the level of magnetic field in train cars and station platforms significantly below the values set out in the ICNIRP Guidelines. As for wayside magnetic fields, land acquisition for Maglev construction was carried out to acquire enough land so the level of magnetic field at site boundaries is below the Guideline values.
Exposure to strong magnetic field could induce electric currents within the human body in what is known as a "stimulation effect." The level of electric currents induced varies depending on the strength and frequency of magnetic fields.
