    1 outlet checker1 user’s guide

    Mat Material:

    The thin black top conductive layer is the layer that your body makes contact with. It is made of PU (Polyurethane) leather. Leather look-alike items made with polyurethane (PU) are very consumer friendly and safe unlike older PVC leathers. Our PU Leather is vinyl free, and platelet free.

    The thin black layer of PU leather is infused with carbon. Carbon is the 2nd most abundant element in the human body after oxygen. The carbon is what conducts the earths energy. It also makes the leather flame resistant naturally without the use of harsh flame resistant chemicals. The PU Leather would not be conductive without the addition of carbon.

    The bottom or non- conductive layer is made of TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) closed cell foam. This is among the safest foam used. It is latex and PVC free. This is the same foam used in footwear, and even in children’s foam toys.

     

    Cleaning the Universal Mat
    To clean the mat, simply wipe down the mat using a non corrosive cleaner. Do not use chlorine bleach or liquid fabric softener, or any detergent containing bleach or fabric softener, chemicals that can ruin the conductivity of the mat. Do not apply lotions, creams, or oils to the skin before bedtime on parts of your body that will be in contact with the Earthing mat. Such substances oxidize and can damage conductivity. Air dry the mat only,

Lightning Safety
Although it is unlikely that you will be hit by lightning, it is recommended to follow standard lightning safety guidelines as directed by the Environment Canada. Disconnect your Earthing devices during lightning and thunderstorms.

Medical Considerations
Earthing (grounding) refers to the process of establishing conductive contact between the surface of the earth and the the body to maintain the body at earth potential. This occurs naturally when standing barefoot on the earth. Earthing is safe and natural for people of all ages, but it is not medicine or a substitute for medical treatment. If you have a medical condition, see your physician or healthcare provider. If you are using Earthing products and taking medications and notice a change in your condition, even if your condition improves, please consult your doctor.

Research has demonstrated that earthing the body plays a substantial role in the reduction of inflammation and functioning of other physiological processes.  On this basis, it is strongly recommended that individuals taking medication to thin the blood, regulate blood sugar, control blood pressure, or to regulate hormone thyroid levels, consult their Doctor for advice and a medication monitoring routine before they begin using grounding products, especially sleeping earthed.

Research studies providing evidence of earthing effects include:

Pilot Study on the Effect of Grounding on Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness
