Power Balance Band – Fact or Fiction

There is always a new craze happening somewhere in the world and this time it’s the craze of the Power Band. Power bands are being worn by the sporting community and by the sporting community as well as the average man or woman. It is said to be able to increase your performance by 500%. This 500% is in terms of balance stability and strength…but is this for real? I am not convinced…

How does the Power Balance Band work?

It is hard to believe but the Power Balance Band’s secret is in a special hologram that is embedded in the silicone band. This hologram enhances the body’s natural energy.

How do I know this? I found a piece of a story that explains the concept below…

Californian entrepreneur Josh Rodarmel, 28, developed the bands with his brother, Troy, three years ago. He explains:

“Everything in nature has a set frequency. The body has a frequency and things which cause negativity to the human body  –  like mobile phones and radio waves  –  break down its natural healing frequency. My brother and I worked out a way of putting good frequencies into our holograms so they balance out the body, making it stronger and more flexible. It works in different ways for different people. Athletes say they can last longer on the field, that they have better balance and that their muscles recover quicker.”

How do you know if the Power Balance Band really works?

I have found a test that you can do with and without a Power Balance Band on. This assists you in comparing results between the two. The test involves balance and strength.

A person must stand on one leg with arms stretched out to the side. A second person then must try to push down on one the first person’s arms, this causing them to loose balance and fall over. Then repeat the test with the first person wearing a Power Balance Band. It is said that their balance and arm strength should improve and it becomes much harder for them to loose balance and to be pushed over.

Again I ask if this is fact or fiction? Does the Power Balance Band really work? I personally think it is all in the mind. But I am prepared to change my mind.  I want to know your thoughts about the Power Balance Band. Do you have one? Tell us what it has done for you.  Please post a reply with your thoughts and comments.

    Does the Power Balance Band really work? Well from my own experience I do have this renewed energy, have been doing gardening, spring cleaning my home and simply on the go all day without feeling tired, just want to be busy all the time. I have been have been experiencing joint pains in my hands lately which now I feel, is not so painful anymore. Have shared this information with family and friends who just make spectacle remarks. Attended a family member’s 70th birthday party and found that 90% of the guests were all wearing the bands. So would this Power Balance Balance Arm Band thing just be in one’s mind or does it really work?

    It’s a complete scam.

    I’m ashamed to say that I got suckered into buying one.

  5. I am a controversial type of Guy.
    I decided to do some tests.
    I took a wrist band that I managed to acquire and a power balance band that some idiot paid R800.00 for.
    I then got a victim to close his eyes and stand on one leg I then tried the arm pull down test with no power balance band. He resisted slightly.
    I then told him to close his eyes again and gave him the wrist band that felt the same as the power balance band.
    It was more difficult then to pull his arm down.
    I then gave him the power balance band and he resisted with the same fore as the plain wrist band.
    I then gave him a plain elastic band the same size as the power band.
    He resisted even more this time to fall over.
    Conclusion.
    It is all in the mind.

  6. I am a controversial type of Guy.
    I decided to do some tests and put figures to these tests.
    I did testing on three different candidates.
    I took a wrist band that I managed to acquire and a power balance band that some idiot paid R800.00 for and a standard elastic band.
    I used a fish scale that is easily available from a fishing store.

    I then got the first victim to hold the fish scale in his hand, to close his eyes and stand on one leg I then tried the arm pull down test with no bands at all. I pulled down on the other end of the scale it measured 500grams before he lost his balance.

    I then tried the power balance band using the same technique.
    The scale went to 700grams
    I then tried the common elastic band. Scale read 900 grams.
    I carried this out on 3 different people.
    The results were the ordinary elastic band won the power balance test every time.
    Conclusion an ordinary elastic band has the most power.
    I think I should start selling them at 3 times the price.
