PITTSBURGH, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Multiple Energy Technologies, the maker of BIO Power™ technology, is pleased to announce a deal with Brazilian soccer star Andre Santos and BIO Power Brasil Artigos Esportivos E Acessorios Ltda to distribute the company's products in South America, which is the second market to get BIO Power outside of the U.S. The company recently announced a deal with hockey star Alexei Kovalev's company, AK27, to distribute BIO Power products in Russia.
"BIO Power is a patent-pending technology that optimizes the body's natural ability to produce energy, and helps athletes to recover faster by releasing toxins and tension," said Steven Midttun, president of Multiple Energy Technologies. "A player of Andre's intensity is the perfect ambassador because BIO Power is designed to help everyone compete at their highest level – from pro athletes to weekend warriors. If it works for Andre, it'll work for you."
Santos currently plays left back for Gremio on loan from Arsenal F.C. and the Brazil national soccer team. He made his first international appearance as a substitute in a match against Egypt, and went on to participate and help Brazil capture the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. He spent his early career with Figueirense, Flamengo and Atletico Mineiro.
"I'm happy to serve as a brand ambassador for BIO Power in my home country and throughout South America," Santos said. "BIO Power is part of an intense training regimen that helps me recover between games and gives me the energy I need to compete against the world's best."
BIO Power is an integrated dual technology based on the therapeutic effects of bioceramics and vibrational therapy. The technology is integrated into apparel and other products during and after the manufacturing process to help the body restore itself and generate natural energy.
Bioceramics are ultrafine mineral particles extracted from the Amazon rainforest that have photo-thermal properties. When heated by the human body, the minerals emit far infrared radiation that increases cellular metabolism, induces analgesia, promotes muscle relaxation, and decreases inflammation and oxidative stress. Bioceramics also have reflective properties that enable the material to echo infrared radiation naturally emitted by the body.
Vibrational therapy is the practice of manipulating energy fields to affect health. The human biofield is a network of complex electromagnetic fields engendered by the movement of sub-atomic particles. BIO Power products are imprinted with signature frequencies that transmit to the user upon contact, rebalancing the energy fields that help to regulate cellular physiology. Lab tests conducted with a pre-clinical model of post-operative pain show that bioceramics and vibrational therapy are singularly effective, but when combined they present enhanced synergy.
"Much of the research and development that goes into BIO Power technology is conducted at the UNISOL Institution right here in Brazil," said Augusto Farrapeira, president of BIO Power Brasil Artigos Esportivos E Acessorios Ltda. "We're proud that people in our own backyard now have access to this new and exciting technology that's getting results for athletes worldwide."
