When I first heard about Active Edge, I was skeptical. Carly had written about them some time ago, and her review left me curious. When I was offered an Active Edge shirt to try, I wasn’t sure what my experience might be. This post holds my subjective thoughts on the product.
As someone who deals with Rheumatoid Arthritis, my inflammatory disease is largely under control, but it has left me with a fused right wrist. Despite the collections of medications I take to control it, frequent swelling my ankles and hands. Active Edge claims to help with that inflammation. This is achieved by Active Edge products being embedded with a proprietary electromagnetic frequency technology specifically geared to fight inflammation.
Active Edge product utilizes the first technology capable of infusing and embedding a recipe of electromagnetic frequencies into fabrics and other materials. Developed here in America, Active Edge™ reacts very positively with the human body to improve wellness and quality of life. Medical experts believe that this innovative technology increases blood flow and oxygen intake resulting in enhanced performance, decreased inflammation and improved sleep. Medical experts believe that when our product comes into contact with the human body it stimulates the sympathetic nervous system. This immediately increases blood flow and reduces inflammation in the joints, while increasing oxygen intake.
Clinical trials utilizing thermal imaging showed a decrease in inflammation when Active Edge™ products were being worn. Test subjects, and current customers reported decreased pain, greater endurance, and an increase in mobility. These results may greatly benefit persons with chronic illnesses such as arthritis, Parkinson’s, Fibromyalgia, and others. For Anti-Inflammation, it is recommended that persons can wear Active Edge™ accessories (bracelet or necklace) 24 hours a day. While some persons see immediate improvement, it may take several weeks to see the full benefit of the technology. Individual medical situations may present benefits differently.
In fact, their website displays this comparison image.
They explain the images with the following:
Dr. Robert A. Erickson, M.D., was involved in many of the clinical trials with patients with arthritis and other debilitating ailments. He used thermographic imaging to objectively see the response to the human body when Active Edge products were worn. In his reports he states: A decrease in thermal pattern was observed in participants with inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, myofascial dysfunction, or neuropathy. This may indicate that wearing Active Edge is modifying or decreasing the inflammatory response in these persons either directly or indirectly through interaction with the sympathetic nervous system. This correlates with these participants observing a reduction in their pain.
