Does radiation emit from the screen, keyboard and sides of laptops?

Radiation is generated by a laptop in all directions: bottom, top and sides. Radiation is considered most dangerous when in direct contact with the body, particularly when on the lap. The most harmful radiation emissions are emitted from the bottom of the laptop and travel in a downward direction. The DefenderPad® is designed to shield these emissions from touching the body.

The screen and sides of a laptop tend to emit less radiation than the bottom. The radiation levels of the screen, keyboard and sides of a laptop are considered acceptable, low-rise emissions. As a rule of thumb, if you are one foot away from the source of the emissions, the dangers are greatly reduced. Even moving a laptop a few inches away from the lap reduces exposure to potentially harmful radiation.
