At GenBiome, we have chosen to be SafeG™
This means we are operating without WIFI through a cabled network, including our iPads.
If you do not need connectivity, we appreciate if you can switch to airplane mode on your mobile device when attending the premises in order to reduce Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) exposure for yourself, staff and other patients.
SafeG™ means safe, fast, reliable, secure internet and telecommunications services brought into our homes and businesses by wired technology. It means technology that safeguards our health, privacy and security and that evolves over time with the goal of reducing exposure to harmful wireless radiation.

Medical Practice Declares Itself a SafeG Zone
An integrative medical practice in New South Wales, Australia has declared its facility to be a SafeG zone. Next Practice GenBiome near Sydney has billed itself as SafeG, a place with wired internet and telecommunications technology only. Patients and visitors are asked to put their wireless devices on airplane mode when they are not using them in order to protect others in the building.
Nicolas Faust, practice director for GenBiome, says that the practice makes extensive use of technology for electronic forms, interactive displays in the building, and even a patient app that allows patients to book appointments, keep track of medications and read health education materials.
He explained: “When we designed our healing space in 2018, we also wanted it to be a safe haven for staff and patients from an EMR [electromagnetic radiation] perspective and we shielded the exposed side of our premises and cabled all our devices, including iPad and smart phones when inside the premises.” The entire operation functions without Wi-Fi.
Faust adds: “Our set-up also carries an important message to our patients:
1. It is possible to be state of the art in technology without wireless connectivity.
2. Make sure the places you spend a lot of time are also SafeG if you can.
3. Implement mitigation tactics such as cutting your Wi-Fi at night and putting your smartphone on airplane mode as often as possible.”
