Based in Grand Haven, Michigan, HARApad, LLC is a homegrown business that was started by three mechanical engineering graduates.
In 2006, one of the mothers of a HARApad co-founder was diagnosed with breast cancer, inspiring a personal research endeavor to learn more about cancer. Through further research on several suspected causes of cancer, he found a recurring topic – electromagnetic radiation (EMR). He assembled a team of two additional engineers to further his research in finding which devices were producing this EMR. This group began meeting in their spare time, several times a week, poring over research and testing.
Armed with a gaussmeter and pages of doctoral reports, the team found in their research that a significant amount of electromagnetic radiation is generated from laptops. The idea to develop a radiation-reducing product grew into an actual design, and the design turned into a verified product right in the home of the co-founder. After two years of extensive testing, idea conceptualizing, result verification and design optimization, the “Heat And Radiation Attenuating pad,” or HARApad, was born.
HARApad, LLC achieved global sales in its first week and has become the benchmark for laptop electromagnetic radiation protection. Today, the HARApad is managed and manufactured at the headquarters facility in Grand Haven, Michigan.
Starting at $39.99
