energear provides measurable performance enhancement

energear is a new textile technology from Schoeller that ensuring that the energy radiated by the body is returned to it. Following preliminary in-house testing (including the growth of bean seeds) and the positive feedback from users, such as the internationally known equestrian Bettina Hoy and her horses, the efficacy of energear has been confirmed in an innovative test process of the Hohenstein Institute.

Every living being is constantly emitting energy into its environment in the form of Far Infrared Rays. A titanium-mineral matrix specially developed for energear, allows the body's own Far Infrared Rays to be reflected back to it. This additional energy can, in turn, lead to performance enhancement and the avoidance of premature fatigue, improved regeneration, shorter warm-up phases during physical activity and an increase in balance, concentration and wellbeing. Numerous wearers have tested the Schoeller technology and provided testimonial of experiencing a positive difference, however, up to now it was not possible to document the effect in figures.

Hohenstein examines the influence of clothing on mental performance capacity

Therefore, in order to corroborate the positive experience, testers wearing an energear shirt or an identical “placebo” shirt were subjected to a new test process. The test recorded the age-related mean reaction time to visual and audio stimuli as well as the rate of errors per test model. The results show that testers wearing an energear shirt displayed a shorter reaction time to both visual and audio stimuli corresponding to increased information processing. “These easurements taken by a neutral institute allow the positive effect of energear to be corroborated,” explains a delighted Hans U. Kohn, COO of Schoeller Technologies AG. “This product was considered to come from the “esoteric niche” by some and now we have real data that show a scientific positive effect.” The complete test report on the Hohenstein study can be viewed at the Schoeller Technologies stand, Hall B6, Stand 327.

World championship horse performs better
Not only humans and plants experience the difference, so do animals. Bettina Hoy,international rider and equestrian trainer has been pampering two of her top horses with an energear blanket since last September. “The blanket definitely had a positive influence on the good result at the World Championships”, says Bettina Hoy. Her younger horse, Designer, was very fresh and motivated after wearing the blanket. “Lanfranco, my best horse, was relatively relaxed during the blanket test, he was mentally strong and worked well,” added Ms. Hoy.

Lots of positive feedback
Others in the test reported improved concentration, better balance or deeper and therefore more refreshing sleep. Andrea Meier, nurse and biker in the soq.de Speedzone Teams tested the energear print shirt, without knowing what she should she might experience. “I wore the test shirt during a 4-hour basic endurance interval training session,” reported Ms. Meier. “I felt more powerful with the shirt. During technique training on the mountain bike,I was able to cope well with the tricky stretches.”

energear textile technology was developed for Schoeller textiles in 2010 and integrated into membranes and coatings. Since 2011 it has been available at licensing level for other brands, as a print paste that can be applied to many textiles. It can therefore be used in the first, second or third clothing layer, regardless of the substrate.
