(October 1999)(View Original Study with Data)
Virginia Brown, an Occupational Therapist, was testing the claim from many customers that they felt physically stronger when wearing the Shield. Two measurements were taken to test this hypothesis. Initial baseline readings were taken. The subject then wore a Shield over their lower sternal region for one minute.
The relative strength or weakness of the opponens muscles was then re-evaluated with the dynamometer. Of the 50 individuals tested, 96% showed average increased muscle strength of 24%. Objective metrics demonstrate the BioElectric Shield increases muscle strength in most (96%) individuals.
