How HECS works

HECS patented technology reduces the human electric signal.

HECS is based on 3 simple scientific principles.

1: All living creatures emit a measurable electrical energy signal.

2: Many animals can detect electrical energy. 

3: A conductive screen known as a Faraday cage can block electrical energy. 

HECS Stealthscreen is made of conductive carbon fibers uniquely woven to reduce the human electric signal.

HECS helps hunters, photographers, wildlife researchers and divers to get closer to animals in their natural undisturbed state.


All living creatures emit a measurable electrical energy signal

All living creatures, through muscle movement and heartbeat produce an electrical energy field. Human beings are no exception. 

An electrocardiogram (EKG) measures the electrical activity of your heart. An EKG is a common medical test that checks your heart by measuring the electrical activity. With each beat, an electrical impulse is produced, which the EKG reads. Muscle movement also produces electrical impulses: The larger the muscle, the more significant the impulse.

Animals can detect electrical energy

Scientific studies that have found that many animals and insects can sense electromagnetic energy. Birds, salmon, trout and turtles can navigate by sensing the Earth’s electromagnetic field. Foxes hunt using the Earth’s magnetic field. Echidnas use electroreception to detect prey beneath the ground. Sharks, rays, lobsters and many fish species have special sensing organs that detect electrical energy. These electroreceptors allow sharks and fish to sense the faint electrical signals given off by living things. 

HECS reduces your electrical signal

HECS is conductive carbon fiber uniquely woven to reduce the human electrical energy field.

HECS patented technology is based on the Faraday Cage principle, which was invented in 1836 by English scientist Michael Faraday. A Faraday Cage is an enclosure made of a conductive mesh that blocks electrical fields. 

A common example of a Faraday Cage or mesh that blocks waves can be seen in the door of your microwave oven. The small mesh pattern in the door is sized to block microwave transmissions, just like the grid in a HECS garment is designed to reduce human electrical energy waves.

HECS fabric is completely flexible, and very lightweight so you don’t even notice it's there. And because the carbon fiber is knitted directly into the fabric, HECS won't wash out.

HECS is designed to make your outdoor or aquatic experience far more fun allowing you remarkable experiences and close encounters like never before.

CAUTION: HECS products are designed to reduce the electromagnetic output of the wearer so less is emitted and detectable from the outside. HECS is NOT in effect an "invisibility cloak". The wearer must also employ traditional concealment techniques like visual camouflage, scent reduction techniques (staying down-wind) as well as noise and movement minimisation. 

Some species of sharks and other marine life are attuned to very minor electromagnetic signals. Typically such aquatic species are also sensitive to visual and olfactory (i.e. smell) stimulation. HECS products DO NOT in effect make the wearer invisible. The user assumes all responsibility and risk involved when in the habitat of sharks, rays and other marine life. Many aquatic species are dangerous and unpredictable. It is impossible to guarantee that marine life will not detect any electromagnetic signal while a person is wearing a HECS product and also may locate a wearer using its other senses. With or without a HECS product all animals should be treated with respect and caution. Any water-based activity in the presence of marine life is inherently dangerous, involves a considerable degree of risk and is not recommended. Do not participate in any activity involving risk of harm from animal life which you would not voluntarily engage in without a HECS product.
