FAZUP, a startup company based in Switzerland, has unveiled a new product in the form of a thin patch designed to help minimize the amount of radiation emitted by a mobile phone when it is being used to make a call. The solution uses a passive antenna that works to control the discharge of radiation received by the body when a user is carrying a mobile device in his or her pocket or emitted to the head during a phone call.
The FAZUP patch can be attached to the back of a compatible device near its antenna in order to optimize the handset's power control and regulate the flow of radiation toward the user. Mobile devices that work with FAZUP's solution include the Samsung Galaxy S9 range and the Galaxy S8 series as well as some device offerings from ASUS, LG, Sony, Motorola, OnePlus, HTC, Xiaomi, Huawei, BlackBerry, and Nokia. Since the precise positioning of the patch varies by phone model, FAZUP's product kit ships with a special tool to help users fix the location of the patch to an optimal position. The patch is applied to a location on the phone where the radiation discharge can be reduced to a safe level while at the same time maintaining the quality of network signal. However, the level of protection from the FAZUP anti-radiation patch depends on the signal strength of a network. FAZUP noted that a user is more exposed to mobile radiation when there is a strong network signal, thus lowering the anti-radiation protection provided by the solution. Otherwise, the FAZUP patch offers a higher level of protection when there is a poor network condition. The patch is designed with a specialized contour that works to interfere with all the frequency bands such as 2G, 3G, and 4G in order to optimize the power control of a device.
FAZUP's goal of creating the anti-radiation solution is to help address the health degradation of people who are exposed to radiation from mobile devices, seeing how government-backed studies reveal no proof that mobile phones and the radiation they emit cause bad effects such as cancer, though FAZUP cited a study from the World Health Organization classifying mobile phone radiation as "possibly carcinogenic to humans."
