Phiten Technology Explained

Phiten, the company was founded by Yoshihiro Hirata. He operated a chiropractic clinic in Japan, and discovered a way to aid in his patient’s physical pain. Word of mouth spread and his products became very popular. He eventually quit his private practice and devoted his time to developing the Phiten products. In 1983 he formed the Phiten Company. By 1998 they had expanded to the United States and in 2001 Aqua – Titanium was born, which led the way for this technology to be used in fabrics. From this the infamous Phiten Titanium Necklace emerged! In Japan the necklace was referred to as Rakuwa.

Hirata developed his company with the idea of good health and well-being. Not a stretch, considering his background in pain management for his patients. The heart of this idea is Aqua Metals, or metals that are broken down into microscopic size and submersed in water. Aqua-Titanium is based upon this technology. Titanium is normally a lightweight and insoluble metal used in medical devices due to its non-corrosive and hypoallergenic properties. They found that titanium in its solid state is not suitable for exercise-specific uses, which led to Aqua-Titanium.

Aqua-Titanium is utilized as a dye and embedded into products made from fabric, including necklaces and bracelets. This process starts with pure water, and then titanium is dissolved into the water. As more titanium is dissolved the concentration of titanium to water naturally increases. This process creates Micro Titanium Spheres. Aqua Titanium is the result. Micro Titanium Spheres are used in the silicone products such as the Phiten Necklace and the Phiten Bracelet. Phiten actually has an Aqua Gold technology has well. This is used in their liquid products such as skin and hair care products.

Many professional athletes wear the Phiten products and confirm the notion of increased athletic performance, pain and stress reduction. The company does not, however only cater to professional athletes. They know that everybody can benefit from their products. Everyday life has as many or more stress factors as the pros. The philosophy at the company is everyone needs better health and more energy.

There has been much debate on the validity of the Phiten Company claims. There is limited scientific research or proof. It is generally agreed that it causes no harm. If a person suffers from fatigue or minor aches and pains it would seem worth it to give the products a chance.

New Technology in Diamond Properties Analysis

Isee2 company has developed a technology that works as a retail selling aid allowing buyers to measure the beauty of a diamond beyond its classically graded properties.

A diamond’s beauty is its selling quality and can differentiate between diamonds graded alike is that something that makes an exceptional diamond outshine the others. Isee2 technology can make such detail analysis.

How it works

The technology is based on a software that analyzes the diamond with the help of two devices: one measuring the cut quality aspects while the other is a high power magnifier used to read the ionized inscription on the table of every Isee2 diamond.

The diamond is scanned by a camera that sends the images to a computer which processes 48 different lighting positions during its calculations. Thus are made objective evaluations of: the amount of light returned from the diamond , the degree of contrast between the 57 facets and the quality of the cut (brilliance, scintillation and symmetry).

Diamonds’ appearance differ when observed in diffuse/ambient light conditions. Strong light conditions emphasize fire and scintillation whereas in softer light the optical symmetry is emphasised more.

Unlike BrillianceScope, Isee2 performs its analysis in diffuse light conditions. Diamonds that perform well on Isee2 analysis will look smashing in softer light conditions. If the diamond is well graded on the BrillianceScope it will look stunning in direct light conditions.

This technology facilitates the choice decision by permitting buyers to be convinced of the qualities of a stone all by themselves without the help of a layman.
