Our First Clinical Trial

This was a preliminary test but was conducted under clinical guidelines and using actual scientific methods. Subjects were tested first to assess their baseline strength using isometric chest press and isometric leg press machines. Then the subjects were tested under double blind fashion using a fake bracelet and a real bracelet. Subjects were also unknowing as to the concept of what the bracelet technology was or what it was supposed to do. In fact, the bracelets were not only made identical, they were made to appear as basic and unimpressive as possible. There was a mix of athletic individuals, healthy but not athletic individuals, and a mixture of men and women participants. Due to the nature of such tests, including the learning curve of using the machines, subjects' results fell into two categories. The two categories are: subjects that performed better than baseline with both the placebo band and the real band, and those subjects that performed less than baseline with either placebo band or real band (the results from these individuals were obviously removed). Due to the nature of the machine and the fact that this first test was performed while the subjects were unknowing as to the concept of the technology (a means to minimize external variables), this was to be expected. It is important to note that a few individuals could in fact press harder than the machine could record. Their results were also removed from the test results, even if it was only on one portion of the test where any individual applied more force than the machine could record. Below is a summary of the results from remaining individuals based on their MEAN values:

CHEST PRESS:

  • Baseline: 123.4
  • With Dynactiv SR: 133.4
  • With Placebo: 127.8
  • Dynactiv SR: Percentage Increase Over Baseline: 8%
  • Placebo: Percentage Increase Over Baseline: 3.6%
  • Summary: Additional 4.4% increase over placebo, more than 120% increase in percentage points.

LEG PRESS:

  • Baseline: 393.75
  • With Dynactiv SR: 465.75
  • With Placebo: 438.5
  • Dynactiv SR: Percentage Increase Over Baseline: 18.3%
  • Placebo: Percentage Increase Over Baseline: 11.4%
  • Summary: Additional 6.6% increase over placebo, more than 60% increase in percentage points.
