Default Power Balance wristbands

I came across a power balance wrist band today. It seems to be promoted as a sports performance aid - giving better flexibility, power and balance.

It claims to use "holograms embedded with frequencies that react positively with your body’s natural energy field." It goes on to state: "When the hologram comes in contact with your body’s energy field, it allows your body to interact with the natural, beneficial frequency stored within the hologram. This results in improved energy flow throughout your body.

I performed a simple test with it and a cell phone: I held my phone out in my outstretched arm and had someone push my arm down. I then did the same but with the wristband in my hand with the phone. I was able to resist the push a lot more the second time.

Is there anything in this? Could these help block emf radiation from reacting negatively with our bodies? Has anyone done some research on this subject?

i came across one of these in australia this year... it was used by a guy who had a surfing injury and it was told to me it was magnetic... it really had helped him loads and he's surfing again... I was pretty amazed at the balance test i gave it.. i actually forgot about this until i just saw your thread.. besides that one night, i have never come across them before or since..

I ordered one last night for the fun of it.
Only cost £4 with shipping included, from china.

If it 'works' i will buy a few more, and do some 'experiments' with them.

OP, I'm pretty certain they don't work. Do you even understand what they're saying, because to me it reads like pseudoscientific gibberish. Embedded holograms? Energy fields? Natural frequencies? Unprovable nonsense. Do they have any evidence of it working on their website or is it just testimonials?

If you thought it worked it may have been a placebo effect, or it may have been that you were more prepared to push back the second time, or something along those lines. I suppose if you get two you could perform a double blind randomised controlled trial with some friends maybe.

I know it's only £4...but it's still a waste of money.

Energy fields are not unproveable nonsense , you are way behind the times.

We had these in the sports shop i work in, tested them out and there was a noticable improvement even in the skeptical ones!

This is a demonstration video...

From china it's cheaper ingredients and may be slightly wrong geometrically speaking. treat with caution.

But let me know how you get - I'm interested.

People have a weak magnetic field. That's the beginning and the end of this unless you can demonstrate

i) This field changes significantly when unwell (ie there is a causal link).
ii) These fields can be modified by external forces
iii) Modification of this field has a testable, verifiable affect on some part of the subject.
iv) This wrist band is an external force which can modify the field
v) The effect of the wrist band is unique and because of the magic woo of the hologram and not just the effect of cheap plastic worn on the wrist.


I think that's it.

Anyway, why settle for holograms when you can have copper, magnets, and the baby jesus in one super bracelet?
