Electromagnetic Radiation

An electromagnetic field (also known as EMF or EM field) is a physical field produced by electrically charged items. It affects the behavior of charged objects in the vicinity of the field. The electromagnetic field EMF extends indefinitely throughout space and describes the electromagnetic interaction. It is one of the four fundamental forces of nature (the others are gravitation, weak interaction and strong interaction).

The field can be viewed as the combination of an electric field and a magnetic field. The electric field is produced by stationary charges, and the magnetic field by moving charges (currents); these two are often described as the sources of the field. The way in which charges and currents interact with the electromagnetic field, EMF is described by Maxwell's equations and the Lorentz force law.

In fact, magnetic fields may be viewed as relativistic distortions of electric fields, so the close relationship between space and time changes here is more than an analogy. Together, these fields form a propagating electromagnetic wave, which moves out into space and need never again affect the source. The distant EM field formed in this way by the acceleration of a charge carries energy with it that "radiates" away through space, hence the term for it.

The SportPort Commitment to Fashion, Function and Technology

We live in an invisible sea of electromagnetic field radiation. Subtle energies constantly swirl in and around our bodies, whether or not we are aware of them. Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) are energy waves with frequencies below 300 hertz or cycles per second. The SportPort™ Fitness Line incorporates a proprietary pocket & protective solution that helps protect the user from potentially harmful Electromagnetic Fields or Frequencies (EMF) emitted from cell phones. All of our products have been tested and approved by an accredited lab to ensure added safety, as well as superior performance. [PATENT NUMBER: 8,898,816]

What is EMF?

Electromagnetic radiation (EM radiation, EMR, or light) is a form of energy released by electromagnetic processes. In physics, all EMR is referred to as light, but colloquially light often refers exclusively to visible light, or collectively to visible, infrared, and ultraviolet light. Electromagnetic radiation can be classified into two types: ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation, based on its capability of ionizing atoms and breaking chemical bonds. Ultra Violet and higher frequencies, such as X-rays or Gamma rays are ionizing, and these pose their own special hazards. While the most acute exposures to harmful levels of electromagnetic radiation are immediately realized as burns, the health effects due to chronic or occupational exposure may not manifest effects for months or years.


3D Diagram

Electromagnetic waves can be imagined as a self-propagating transverse oscillating wave of electric and magnetic fields. This diagram shows a plane linearly polarized wave propagating from left to right. The electric field is in a vertical plane and the magnetic field in a horizontal plane.
