Power Balance Wristbands
« on: April 05, 2010, 07:59:47 AM »
I am doing a research paper and was wondering what you guys know about the power balance. if you know nothing, it is a wristband that is supposed to increase strength, balance, and flexibility. if you have had any experiences with these, or know someone who has, please refer them to here. i have heard both sides of the  argument and have even contacted a proffesional Cymaticologist (?) because that is how they are supposed to work. he has yet to get back to me, but i was wondering who had any kind of experience.
Thanks
Alex

Dude...

it's the equivalent to a Livestrong band. It's silicone. Nothing more, nothing less.

!? How is a wristband supposed to increase flexibility and strength?  ::)
A state of mind when you are performing a physical movement that is neither too simple or too complex. Your focus rules out all other mental processes, your mind has no time for words, worries, or distractions. There is only timing, spatial awareness, and the feeling of satisfaction as you land

Just out of curiosity I looked these up.

Product Description

POWER BALANCE bracelets contain two Mylar Hologram's which are embedded with frequencies that react with your body's electro-magnetic field. When the static POWER BALANCE Hologram comes in contact with your body's energy field, it begins to resonate in accordance with each individual's biological energy system, creating a harmonic loop that optimizes your energy field, maintains maximum energy flow while it clears the pathways so the electro-chemical exchange functions like the well-tuned generator it was designed to be, resulting in immediate improved balance, increased core strength, greater flexibility, increased range of motion and overall well-being.

Pardon me but what the f#ck is this hippy shit!!!  Sorry about that.

Jeremy, the first word that popped into my mind when I read it was "Placebo". I Googled "mylar holograms" and got a review by a surfer, who claims that it works. He looked at videos of his favourite surfers vouching, and I'm guessing it was akin to the "big words never lie" thing. And I understood what they were saying, in their "explanation". Total freaking BS. I looked at a picture of them, and the "mylar holograms" are on the OUTSIDE, with the silicon band between you and it. Your "energy field" as they put it, which is just really the electrical signals that are in your skin, which by the way, are MINUSCULE, would not even get ANY contact with those holograms. The only effects you will feel, in theory, are the ones produced by your own mind. He (the surfer) said he preformed better, but all that stuff can be attributed to a heightened sense of self-confidence. Here's the link to the article: http://www.dailystoke.com/surfing/product-review-power-balance/ Cheers!
