Personal/Home Shielding reduces EMI Exposure!Randy Mitchell
Personal/Home Shielding reduces EMI Exposure! In today’s wireless world, we endure constant exposure to RF waves. Though there is no absolute proof of health risks due to RF wave exposure, there is certainly concern regarding exposure. EHS (Electromagnetic HyperSensitivity), the name given to EMI sensitivity, involves nervous system symptoms. Symptoms include headaches, fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances, and skin irritation among many others. Many sufferers of EHS claim that their symptoms decline when they shield themselves from RF/EMI exposure. Personal Shielding involves using materials that block the free passage of EMI waves into their environment.
Personal/Home Shielding reduces EMI Exposure! Home Shielding involves using Architectural Shielding to cover the walls and ceiling with conductive metalized textiles. Metalized textiles block the passage of EMI and can be useful as a “tough outdoor application” or a wallpaper application indoors. In the same way, window curtains made using same material can shield the window openings. Internet access can be hard wired or connected to a wireless modem in a shielded room for controlled usage, decreasing EMI in open areas. RF shielded sheets, shielded bed canopies and bedding work well for shielding the occupants while sleeping
Personal/Home Shielding reduces EMI Exposure! Personal Shielding involves wearing shielded garments and using shielded accessories. Shielded garments are made using conductive fabrics that block the passage of RFI. Shielded garments provide an RF Shielding effectiveness of 35-40dB in the 900 MHz-5GHz range, representing 99.99% reduction in RF exposure to the wearer! Please see our article on the Top Five Reasons for Wearing Anti-Radiation Clothing! EMI Shielding extends to the areas of your body covered by the shielded garments. Personal shielding is also available by placing wireless items in RF Shielded Pouches and bags, blocking more RFI emissions than your pockets or your bedstand!
