energear promotes blood circulation
Jan '11
The latest Schoeller technology, energear, ensures that the energy radiated by the body is reflected back. This additional energy can have a positive effect on the body's performance capacity and wellbeing, a fact which is confirmed by various stress tests.

Heat has a beneficial effect and is experienced as a pleasant, cosy feeling. It permits deep relaxation and provides the body with renewed energy. For this reason, Far Infrared Rays have long been used for therapeutic purposes in medicine. An effect like that of a hot stone massage or an infrared sauna is achieved by energear, the completely new fabric generation from Schoeller Textil AG, which once again has taken nature as its role model. Here use was made of the natural capacity of certain minerals to reflect heat energy rays.

With energear a special titanium/mineral matrix incorporated into the fabric ensures that the energy radiated by the body is reflected back in the form of Far Infrared Rays. This reflection promotes blood circulation and increases oxygen levels in the blood. This additional energy has various positive effects on the body, for example performance enhancement and prevention of premature fatigue as well as improved regeneration. In addition, shorter warm-up phases are required for physical activity and a general increase in concentration and wellbeing is experienced.

The energear technology can be combined with various schoeller fabric qualities so that functions such as elasticity, weather-proofing and moisture management provide additional comfort. The possible uses and areas of application for energear fabrics are just as varied: clothing for biking and mountain sports, for trekking and hiking, for motorcycling, for skiing and winter sports, in workwear and military wear and also in city and street wear.

Various stress tests have been performed to verify the function of energear. Two identical outfits were tested, one with the energear finish and one without. The test subjects wearing energear experienced proven positive effects and in some cases, the benefits of energear were greater among those who do not exercise regularly.

energear– Effects within the framework of Iactic acid tests Among many test subjects, results showed varying degrees of lactic acid levels during physical exercise. Lactic acid levels in the blood were measured immediately after physical exercise. The levels of lactic acid in many of the test subjects with the energear outfit were lower than those of test subjects with the comparative clothing.

Given the fact that an increase of lactic acid levels during physical exercise leads to more rapid muscle exhaustion, the tests show that energear can enhance physical performance. energear – Effects on heart rate Further positive effects of energear in stress tests can be determined in terms of heart rate. It was found that with physical activity, the heart rate of the test subjects with the energearoutfit could be positively influenced, and in some cases considerably.

For example, in some cases the heart rate of the test subjects was reduced by up to 20 beats per minute. Although human heart rate is dependent on many factors, such as age and level of fitness, in general keeping a lower heart rate during exercise means an individual tends not to reach his/her personal limit as quickly and can also recover faster.
