How EMF Shielding Works from SYB

SYB products are based on fundamental scientific principles of EMF shielding established over a century ago. Here’s how EMF shielding works from SYB.

Electromagnetic shielding (EMF shielding or EM shielding) works by creating a mesh of conductive or magnetic material to form a barrier that obstructs EM fields.

This is well established, universally-accepted science – ever since Michael Faraday invented the first Faraday Cage in 1836.

For over a century, EM shielding has been used to protect sensitive equipment from interference by EM fields. 

More recently, as the health risks of EM fields has become more well established (and the number of sources of EMF from wireless devices have exploded), these same techniques and principles have been applied to create products to reduce human exposure to this radiation.

How EMF Shielding Works

A mesh of conductive metallic material can deflect EMF radiation. Make that metallic material thin enough, and you can weave it into fabrics like cotton. And that’s how we make products like our Baby Blanket.

At the same time, technology has advanced to where the conductive materials used to make EMF shielding can be made very tiny so they can be woven into fabric and other everyday materials. The metallic fibers in our Baby Blanket, for example, are thinner than a human hair.

This is how we at SYB make products that reduce your exposure to harmful EMF radiation.

But you can’t just block all EMF radiation from your modern technology. Because emitting EMF is exactly how our modern wireless technology works and communicates. 

If you blocked all the EMF radiation coming from your phone, for example, it won’t work. Same for your WiFi router, or your baby monitor, or any device that utilizes wireless communication.

So we design our products to reduce your exposure to wireless radiation, without interfering with how your devices function and communicate, and without forcing you to change your habits. 

For example, our Phone Pouch shields EMF radiation on one side only – the side between your phone and your body. This deflects a bunch of your phone’s harmful radiation away from your body, while still permitting your phone to work properly. We don’t shield the entire Phone Pouch because that would interfere with your phone’s signal and drain its battery. 

So, for EMF shielding accessories like our Phone Pouch, Pocket Patch and Laptop Pad, we design them intentionally to provide shielding in a specific direction. And that’s how we can design many of our accessories to Shield Your Body without interfering with your device performance.

With our apparel products, it’s a bit different, and we do design them to provide complete protection. 

For example, our Baby Blanket wraps your baby – not your devices. And our Boxer Briefs wrap and protect your reproductive organs. So our apparel products can provide complete protection to Shield Your Body without interfering with your devices.
