For Mark it all started when his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006.
Naturally her diagnosis came as a big shock.
But perhaps more so because she’d always been such a health conscious person.
Even before her diagnosis Mark’s mother would warn him about the dangers of EMFs.
This was long before anybody was really talking about the issue.
Being naturally curious Mark set out to test her theories and concerns.
He attended graduate school and obtained a Master’s Degree in BioMedical Engineering.
Mark began to experiment and develop products to help protect himself and his family.
He enjoyed what he was doing and thought how wonderful it would be to be able to educate people and help them live healthier lives by offering EMF protection products.
Mark discovered that a significant amount of EMFs are generated from laptops.
The idea to develop a product to reduce radiation grew into a design, and the design turned into a product.
After two years of testing, idea conceptualizing, result verification and design optimization, the “Heat And Radiation Attenuating pad,” or HARApad, was born.
With some friends that were also engineers he decided to take create a company to make and sell HARApads and other EMF protection products.
They named the company HARApad after the laptop shield they had created.
Mark says, “in this world of ever-increasing technology it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get away from electronic devices and their unhealthy emissions. It’s becoming more and more important to ‘do what you can when you can’ to reduce your exposure. That could mean turning off your WiFi at night, talking on your cell phone with low-emission earbuds, or purchasing other EMF protection devices.
If doing the latter, it’s very important to use devices that act as a physical shield between the electronic device and the user’s body. This approach is very similar to the lead vest shields that are used to protect patients while getting X-rays. The radiation is different, but the same shielding physics apply. The shield should be similar in size to the electronic device and be placed between the device and the user. “
Mark Kramer is my next interview guest.
Thursday, 13th October at 1:00 p.m. EST (10 AM PST or 5 PM GMT) I’m conducting a LIVE interview with Mark Kramer.
Mark Kramer is co-founder and CEO of HARApad LLC and their line of EMF protection devices.
Mark has undergraduate degrees in mechanical engineering and product design, and has over 10 years of experience, research, and testing in the field of electromagnetic radiation and EMF protection.
EMFs Are A Scientific Thing That Follow The Laws Of Physics
Mark says, “it’s important to know that this EMF is a real scientific thing that follows the laws of physics.” This is one of the questions we will be addressing.
We will also discuss:
- what EMFs are and how they affect the body
- why its important to protect yourself from EMFs from computers
- recommendations for a safe computer set up
- free and easy ways to protect yourself from EMFs
- best practices for testing with a gaussmeter
- and much more

Carol Horn said,
A HARApad concern: I use my laptop exclusively sitting on a desk. Not sure the pad–being under the computer–would help much since it is not sitting on my lap. I am a low-income senior and not tech-savy and looking at their website leaves me confused and concerned about costs if I had to add other items. Please help. Advice?
Lloyd, Thanks for another great interview! I especially appreciated what Mark shared about electrolytes.
Carol, Do you have a wired connection for your laptop? If not, call the company that provides your internet connection. Ask them if there is a fee to change your service from wireless to hard-wired. If there is a fee ask them if they will please waive it due to being a low-income senior.
I too am low-income, almost senior. I paid for an ethernet connection for my laptop when I first signed up for my service. My laptop sits on a wood desk, on top of a wood box, so the laptop screen is eye-level, and the laptop body is approx 12 inches away from the top of my legs. I have a wired keyboard as well, and it sits on a keyboard shelf that extends beyond the front of the desk, so my knees and thighs are not even under the desk/laptop. With my blue-light-blocking glasses (quite inexpensive on Amazon), I’m well protected — to spend time studying this site! lol! Best wishes.
