Stickers promise to save users from mobile radiation
Safer Call transforms harmful energy from electromagnetic waves into safe frequencies
A local technology trading firm is launching a set of stickers that it promises will protect users from the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation emitted from mobile phones.
Safer Call from Orange Technology General Trading is an aluminium foil sticker that is laser programmed to rearrange energy released through electromagnetic waves from mobile devices, transforming them into a safer natural frequency pattern. The product was developed by Eng. Paul Sommer in Austria and manufactured in Germany.
According to the firm's operations and business development manager June Silver, the product witnessed an ‘excellent' response in Europe which is why they're now bringing it to the United Arab Emirates. Orange Technology only entered the local GCC market in 2009, though the company has been operating under the name ‘Intelligent Product' in Europe since 2005.
Safer Call has a seal of approval from the International Society for Electrosmog Research (IGEF), a financially and politically independent association of scientists who study the effects of electrosmog on humans, animals and the environment. It claims that Safer Call's effectiveness can be scientifically proven - their research showed a decrease in the natural order of heart rhythms while using mobile phones, which resulted in greater stress; but calls with the protection sticker showed no loss of "vitality and well-being". A product demonstration and description can be viewed by clicking on the video tab above or here.
Safer Call retails for AED 60 and is already available at Souq.com, while all Aptec mobile outlets and Giant supermarkets will stock the product from this month onwards. Orange is also accepting telephone orders through the toll free number 800-672643-832 (800-ORANGE-TEC) and will deliver it to customers in the UAE for free.
According to the firm's research, users of Safer Call said they no longer experienced (or had dramatically less) headaches, nausea, loss of energy or nervousness even after longer phone calls. The manufacturer of Safer Call does not claim the product reduces energy in any way but rather just rearranges it for safer frequencies, and still advises people to limit their mobile phone use and keep all wireless communication devices like cordless telephones and infant telecoms at least 2 metres away.
Experts remain divided over the issue of whether mobile phone radiation is harmful to humans, with the World Health Organization ruling that wireless devices are not a public health risk, while recent research by the Environmental Working Group show there's an increased risk for long-term cellphone users to develop brain tumours because of radiation exposure.
