Your phone is equipped with internal measurements that offer insight into its radiation output. The phone manufactures don’t offer this info up front, so we tap into it for you, collecting and extracting data from your phone, such as: network type, band-GSM, UMTS, CDMA, channel, signal strength, phone model, and more.
Utilizing patent pending technology tawkon calculates the phone’s radiation level and hence the user exposure – SAR (Specific Absorption Rate, a universal measure for the amount of radiation being absorbed by the user). Our technology is calibrated in an FCC certified RF (Radio Frequency) lab with state-of-the-art equipment.
With this information, we provide alerts and suggestions to keep your radiation exposure low.
In order to validate our tool, Tawkon contracted with Satimo (a fully accredited test lab - see certificate below) to provide SAR measurement services on various phones according to the IEEE standard required by the FCC for any phone made available on the commercial market. The testing process used an extremely precise sensor and a “SAM Phantom” (designed to simulate the human body) to assess the amount of radiation absorbed into the body.
The results of our recent testing (Jan 2012) clearly confirmed Tawkon’s effectiveness as an accurate tool to predict SAR levels and recommend changes to reduce users risk.
