Clinical Trials

Background of the Clinical Trials

Several years ago we discovered that when products we treated with our technology were worn, they appeared to be doing some amazing things in improving physical performance.  In order to verify that our technology was doing what it appeared to be doing and that it was based on science, we undertook an exhaustive series of research and clinical trials to verify our findings. 

Research and clinical trials were performed on over 2500 human test subjects. The purpose of the research and clinical trials was to determine if there was any improvement of physiological responses by wearing our products.

Clinical trials were performed on a wide variety of demographics ranging from world-class athletes to elderly people residing in nursing homes. No distinction was made for gender and the age range for test subjects was 18 - 82.  The testing was performed by a variety of professional researchers, scientists and doctors.  The research was performed at independent labs, colleges, universities, and hospitals. 

The testing was conducted under stringent and accepted scientific and procedural protocols.   User, non-user and control groups were utilized and the vast majority of the trials were double-blinded.

Results of Clinical Trials

The results of the clinical trials with 2500 people were remarkable and consistent.  The testing indicated that by wearing frequency treated products, physiological function had significantly improved in the areas of strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance.  Ninety percent of the test participants showed statistically significant improvement in those areas.  None of the test participants had any negative side effects or showed a decrease in physiological function. Test results showed the following: 

  • Range of motion increased by an average of 17%
  • Strength increased by an average of 8%
  • Increased balance
  • Increased endurance
  • Increase in blood flow
  • Decrease in inflammation

In addition, many test participants reported the following: 

  • Reduction in pain from things such as arthritis
  • Improved sleep
  • Improvement in breathing when exercising (many reported a feeling similar to getting a second wind)
  • Reduction in headaches 

United States Department of Defense

The results of our testing were strong enough that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) has become interested in our technology. They are interested to see if Active Edge™ technology can help the performance and recovery of military personnel. We are presently engaged with the DOD who is testing the technology with great success. The DOD has tested and replicated our own clinical trial results. Additionally, preliminary results from some of their studies have shown a 23% increase in oxygen intake when wearing products treated with our technology. 

How is the Active Edge™ technology working?

Medical experts involved with the clinical trials believe when the Active Edge™ bracelet or necklace comes into close proximity with the body, it activates the sympathetic nervous system. This naturally increases blood flow and oxygen intake, while at the same time decreases inflammation, which all helps to enhance performance.

Thermal Imaging

To further corroborate the findings, we have also done extensive testing utilizing Thermal Imaging.  This testing was also conducted by using accepted scientific protocols, double-blind studies, and controlled conditions.  The results were very similar and consistent with previous trials.  It clearly demonstrated objective proof that Active Edge™ products had many positive benefits in improving physiological function.
