DefenderShield had its beginnings in 2010, when Ryan DeBaun and his brother visited their parents, Daniel and June DeBaun, in Florida. The brothers were both working remotely with their laptops on their laps, until June came into the room and said "Take those off of your laps, I want grandchildren one day!"
Daniel DeBaun, a former Telecom engineer and executive with over 30 years of experience with mobile wireless technology, responded by saying the small mobile devices we use everyday don't have the power levels to damage our body, since they emit non-ionizing radiation.
But knowing that these devices did emit EMF frequencies, Daniel and his son Ryan took to the Internet to find out what research studies were saying. Even back in 2010, they found loads of research showing that both thermal and biological damage could occur in the body after close exposure to low-power, non-ionizing EMF radiation coming from mobile devices and wireless networks. While some research was controversial, there was enough showing a significant negative effect that Dan, being the engineer that he is, decided to do something about it.
The EMF protection shielding products available at the time were not able to block the full frequency of EMF radiation coming from a mobile device (ELF and RF), so Dan and Ryan started sourcing and testing materials to build a prototype.
After 6 months, they created a DefenderPad, which was the first and only laptop shield able to block both ELF and RF frequencies coming from a laptop, along with the thermal by-product that has health concerns of its own.
Dan created enough for his family and their friends, and it became so popular they decided to present their solution to the world. And DefenderShield was born.
Very quickly, they realized that EMF radiation was something no one really understood, so Dan and Ryan made sure their website had all the information and research about EMF compiled and explained. Dan appeared as a guest on podcasts, wrote blogs, and spoke at conferences. Dan and Ryan co-authored an easy-to-read guide to EMF radiation and protection, called Radiation Nation, that helped break down EMFs for the layman.
All the while, they were expanding their product line to include cell phone cases, tablet cases, blue light blocking glasses, blankets, and clothing.
Now, DefenderShield is known as the trusted advisor in EMF radiation protection. Ryan and Dan's mission is to share their knowledge about EMF radiation and its potential health issues, while providing the most effective shielding solutions possible.
