Your comment refers to electrostatic discharge (ESD) devices used in the electronics industry and other industries that are meant to slowly dissipate static electricity on workers that can otherwise damage sensitive software and electronic components. By comparison, Earthing systems are conductive, meaning they instantly equalize the body with, and maintain the body, at Earth potential, and are meant to simulate the natural, evolutionary human experience of being barefoot on the Earth outside. Earthing research has demonstrated that holding the body at Earth potential (simulating being barefoot outside) produces significant results on measurements related to inflammation, blood electrodynamics, and autonomic nervous system function.
There is no scientific evidence we are aware of relating to the effect of ESD systems on the physiology, and thus no way to compare objectively ESD vs. Earthing. ESD products are meant for industrial use. The Earthing design has been shown in repeated experiments, published in a variety of journals, to generate distinct changes in the physiology and for which ESD products, meant for industrial use to prevent common static from damaging electronic components, have not been documented to do.
We have informally tested ESD products and found that they do not generate the same electrophysiological changes as does Earthing. While ESD products may produce some benefits, people have told us that ESD products do not produce the same experience and results as Earthing.
All ESD ground cords contain 1 megohm resistor. A 1 megohm resistor allows 60hz EMF-induced body voltage to drop by 90 percent. Earthing products have a built-in 100K ohm resistor in all ground cords for safety and allows 60hz EMF induced body voltage to drop by 99 percent. Earthing’s ability to bring and hold the body at Earth’s potential restores the body’s natural electrical state and facilitates inflammation reduction. Reducing EMF-induced body voltages will not do that, however, such reduction benefits the autonomic nervous system and sleep.
