Some people are very sensitive to the effects of EMF radiation and can literally feel the negative symptoms when exposed to them. This is known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity or EHS.
Those with EHS can find themselves struggling in the workplace since they need to be on a computer all day and have direct contact with their fingers/ hands on a laptop or keyboard. This can cause pain or uncomfortable tingling sensation from direct EMFs exposure.
How Do EMF Radiation Protection Gloves Work?
EMF radiation protection gloves are typically made from materials like copper, silver, or aluminum in a mesh or solid forms. No material can fully block EMF radiation but instead, it attenuates the radiation, which I’ve talked about extensively in other articles.
Attenuation is a gradual loss of force as energy passes through the material. A great example of this is with the lead vest you wear while at the dentist getting x-rays. The vest attenuates the x-rays.
Most EMF radiation protection gloves are made out of some kind of metal made into a mesh material. These work because the metal attenuates the radiation even though the material is not completely solid the mesh is smaller than the largest wavelength, allowing it to almost completely stop the radiation.
One of the many benefits of using protection gloves is they are a physical barrier between your hands and your electronic device.
This direct protection has a much higher defense rate compared to using, for instance, an EMF protection necklace.
Some people believe in products like EMF protection jewelry, which certainly can potentially offer some relief to the body. However, if you are struggling with a specific part of your body, ie your hands are tingling after hours of working on your computer, a direct barrier will do a more thorough job protecting.
I recently had someone message me on the private EMF Academy Facebook group asking about this. She is an administrative assistant and is typing on a keyboard constantly. She is a bit sensitive to EMF radiation, and mentioned that she felt pain in her hands that she didn’t feel was related to carpal tunnel, arthritis or other muscular-skeletal issues.
So, for her, I think EMF protection gloves are likely a really great option. I also think that you could look into using a lower EMF keyboard as well.
Reasons Why You Need EMF Protective Gloves
When you have brands like Apple that say in their manual they recommend keeping your device at least 5 millimeters away from your body you may wonder how exactly am I supposed to use my device?
Purchasing a pair of EMF protection gloves is one of your best options to keep yourself safer from overexposure to radiation from your device.
Another great reason to get a pair of EMF protection gloves it to prevent the negative symptoms that could arise if you are typing on a computer the majority of your days.
By wearing these gloves you will be greatly decreasing your exposure to harmful EMF radiation and potentially saving yourself from future discomfort.
Some professions you may find yourselves working with other high EMF radiation devices (besides just your phone and computer) or maybe in an industry where you need static control for working with delicate static sensitive components.
Both both these a pair of EMF protection gloves could be very useful.
DIY EMF Protection Gloves
For those of you who are do it yourselfers here is a quick option for making your own EMF protection gloves. This is a great choice if you need or want multiple pairs of gloves as you will save a lot of money. An additional advantage to making your own is they are a custom fit!
Here are the supplies you will need for a DIY EMF Protection Glove:
- Marker Or Chalk
- Sewing machine (sewing by hand is optional but will take longer)
- An EMF blocking fabric (Here are a few of my favorite options)
Step 1: Size your Glove
Lay out two layers of your EMF protection fabric, then trace your hand with a marker or a piece of chalk. Make sure you aren’t tracing inwards this will make the gloves too tight.
Step 2: Sew Glove
The next step is to simply sew along the line you drew. Make sure to try on the glove to make sure it fits and make adjustments as needed at this time.
Step 3: Cut Glove
Cut out the webbing but make sure to leave about 1/8 in. of EMF protection fabric. This will ensure that the seems don’t come undone. Now all you have to do is turn your glove inside out, oh and you may want to make one for your other hand!
For those of you who are not interested in making your own EMF protection, not to worry, I have something for you too! Check out the top EMF protection Glove below.
