The Problem: Many Marine Species Can Detect Human Energy Fields
Diving professionals know that it can be difficult to approach many marine species, no matter how carefully you swim or camouflage yourself. Many marine species are known to be sensitive to the electrical signals given off by living organisms and science is discovering more relevance to these fields in many more species every year.
The human body generates electricity during muscle movement - particularly the heart and large muscles like glutes, lats, and quads. Even though the human energy signature is small, it can still be detected by marine species who take flight when approached.
The Answer? HECS Patented Stealthscreen Technology
To address this electroreception problem for diving professionals, HECS Aquatic developed a patented Stealthscreen technologythat incorporated the “Faraday cage principle" into the fabric of the wetsuit. The HECS Stealthscreen Wetsuit contains a mesh of conductive carbon fibre which neutralises the human body’s electrical fields.
The HECS Stealthscreen Wetsuit conceals the human energy field, allowing you to get closer to marine life more than you ever imagined.
ALL LIVING CREATURES EMIT AN ELECTRICAL ENERGY SIGNAL
Muscle movement, heartbeat all cause the emission of extremely low frequency (ELF) electrical energy signals. An electrocardiogram (EKG) measures the electrical activity of your heart. An EKG is a common medical test that checks your heart by measuring the electrical activity. With each beat, an electrical impulse is produced, which the EKG reads. Muscle movement also produces electrical impulses: The larger the muscle, the more significant the impulse.
MANY MARINE ANIMALS CAN SENSE ELECTRIC SIGNALS
Species known to have electroreception include lobsters and crayfish, sharks, rays, eels, lampreys, ratfish, lungfish, sturgeons and some dolphins. This special sense allows those animals to detect electrical energy in the vicinity as a defense mechanism or for identifying prey.
HECS REDUCES THE HUMAN ELECTRIC SIGNAL
HECS StealthScreen reduces the electric signal emitted by the human body. HECS is designed to help you get closer to many marine creatures in their natural undisturbed state. HECS is made with a conductive carbon fiber mesh designed to reduce your electrical energy field. HECS is based on the Faraday Cage principle invented by English scientist Michael Faraday. A Faraday Cage is an enclosure made of a conductive grid that attenuates electrical fields.
