Paul Ross: Cell phone technology and SafeWave technology is basically technology which is founded on research by the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. We are here to make safe technology for mobile phones, and to address the potential biological cell change from using mobile phones.
We have a range of two products, which are tags and cases for Apple products. And we have an agreement with Arrow for global manufacturing and logistics. And as I said, we have a relationship with Catholic University of America for the research.
The product mitigates against biological cell change as a result of using phones. We know that biological cell change occurs, but what we can’t do is relate the cause of the biological cell change to a specific medical condition. That’s one thing that people don’t know.
The product itself is active and intelligent, so it actually analyzes the signal on mobile phones and decides when the protection is needed to take place. There’s no effect on the use of the mobile phone and there’s no effect on SAR, which is the regulation of the phone.
In terms of the market, there are about 5.1 billion users. And for independent research, 86% of the population are aware of possible health risks, and 29% are already…
