“The understanding of bioelectric fields is one of the most exciting scientific discoveries of the past 25 years.”
According to a study conducted at Oregon State University, animals can detect the proximity of the human body through EMR (electromagnetic radiation) emissions. The report observes how animals interact with humans when they’re wearing HECS® birdwatching and wildlife photography camo clothing. The results of this study found that the use of EMR blocking garments allows humans to approach 69 to 75 percent closer to mule deer than without their use. The results also show that the use of EMR blocking clothing, such as the HECS® wildlife photography apparel, is more effective when the human subject remains motionless. Overall, the study finds that this kind of gear makes a human significantly less detectable by animals.
The Science of HECS® Birdwatching & Photography
A study published in Nature, the scientific journal, biologists at the University of California, Berkeley researched the cellular circuit responsible for motion detection in the eye’s retina. This circuit enables us to track moving objects and serves as an example of other brain circuits, some of which perform thousands of computations every second. The findings could aid the design of bionic eyes that track motion and process visual information like our own eyes. These same electrical circuits produced by the eye and brain are emitted from other muscles in the body and it’s what HECS birdwatching camo clothes are designed to block.
In another study, bioengineers performed research in which they applied mathematical, chemical and physical concepts to the analysis of biological systems. In this case, the topic was centered around a sensory modality called electroreception that enables sharks and other animals to perceive electric fields. The findings show that there are biological and geological factors at play, which means they can sense the electricity from muscle contractions in other fish and navigate waters using the earth’s magnetic field. HECS wildlife photography camo clothing is designed to diminish the electrical currents generated by our own muscle contractions, therefore making us less noticeable when we’re in the water.
Vertebrates in sharks and similar fish have evolved electro-sensory receptors that detect electrical stimuli on the surface of the skin and transmit them somatotopically to the brain. It’s composed of a cephalic network of ampullary organs, known as the ampullae of Lorenzini, that can detect extremely weak electric fields during hunting and navigation. Although the developmental origins of these electroreceptors are not well understood, the research would seem to indicate that electricity-blocking wildlife photography clothing is beneficial for unobtrusive interactions with marine life.
HECS® Wildlife Clothing with Interlocking Carbon Fibers
Measurable degrees of advanced thermal retention take place within the carbon yarn in HECS® wildlife photography gear. While wearing HECS® electrical energy blocking technology, wetsuit divers frequently report being much warmer than they are when they’re wearing a regular wetsuit of the same thickness. The quantifiable degree of advanced thermal retention from carbon yarn, makes our birdwatching camo stand out from others on the market.
In addition, electromagnetic shielding is the process of limiting the penetration of electromagnetic fields into the environment via a barrier made of conductive material similar to a Faraday cage. HECS wildlife photography camo is made from a Faraday cage-style mesh that effectively blocks out electrical energy. The amount of reduction depends on the material, thickness, size and frequency of the energy fields. However, studies indicate that the types of interlocking carbon fibers used in our camouflage and other apparel are able to redistribute electrical charges and cancel them out. If the conductor is thick enough and woven tightly, Faraday cages shield the interior and exterior from external electromagnetic radiation.
The Use of EMR (electromagnetic radiation) Blocking Garments Reduces the Ability of Animals to Detect a Human Subject
Animals have an uncanny ability to detect the proximity of humans. This study explores the hypothesis that animals sense EMR (electromagnetic radiation) emissions produced by the human body. The behavior of three species of animals (cattle, horses and mule deer) was observed while interacting with a human subject, both with and without EMR (electromagnetic radiation) blocking garments. The results of this study find that the use of EMR blocking garments allows humans to approach 69 to 75 percent closer to mule deer than without their use. The results also show that the use of EMR blocking garments is more effective when the human subject remains motionless. Overall, the study finds that using EMR blocking garments makes a human significantly less detectable by animals.
