Harmless for humans and animals, nopixgo® simulates natural electromagnetic waves and fi elds, similar to atmospheric discharges during a thunderstorm. Mosquitoes perceive those signals as a threat and hide instead of biting.
The nopixgo®-Mosquito Bite Protection Wristband ensures protection from getting bitten within a radius of about two meters.
A thunderstorm’s atmospheric discharges generate electromagnetic waves and fields that mosquitoes can detect from a long distance away. As soon as mosquitoes detect the signs of a thunderstorm, they instinctively flee because to them, thunderstorms are life-threatening. The high-tech module of the nopixgo® simulates signals similar to the discharges of a thunderstorm, thereby providing protection inside a radius of about 2 metres.. When a mosquito flies towards the protection zone, its sensilla (sensory organs similar to hairs) transmit the environmental stimuli to the brain and it flees immediately as its survival instinct kicks in. If the mosquito is already inside the protection zone, it does not flee but nor does it bite. With its high-tech electronics, nopixgo® provides safe protection against mosquito bites and is harmless to humans and animals*.

nopixgo® has already been successfully tested in many regions by customers and co-workers:

“In April 2017 we tested the nopixgo®-wristband in Ghana (in Accra and in the rain forest of the Ashanti-region), during the rainy season, when the mosquitoes are very active. It works and gets the promised protection.”

Right from the outset, it was clear to the inventor Kurt Stoll that a solution against mosquito bites that did not use medicines and hazardous chemicals would make more sense. Insecticides and medicines have been used in the fight against mosquitoes and vector-borne diseases for many years, but hundreds of thousands of people still die from the effects of insect bites every year. Since pathogens are becoming increasingly resistant to ordinary drugs, there is currently no prospect of these diseases being eradicated. Also, medicines often cause side-effects and pesticides kill not only mosquitoes but also have serious consequences for nature.
Kurt Stoll therefore set about researching mosquitoes not from a biologist’s or a physician’s point of view but from that of a physicist. He studied the evolutionary behaviour of the various mosquito species and found that atmospheric discharges put these two-winged creatures to flight. The inventor drew inspiration from nature and set about transforming these findings into technology. But what electromagnetic signals simulate thunderstorms in such a way that they are perceived by most mosquito species but are harmless to humans and animals?
Many tests followed, along with various adaptations to the electronics and the wristband. Experiments in Switzerland and in a very wide range of climate conditions led to today’s version of the nopixgo®. Kurt Stoll succeeded in coming up with an ingenious solution that causes no side-effects, is environmentally friendly and provides the best possible protection against mosquitoes.
The female mosquito is the most dangerous animal on Earth. It is estimated that over 700,000 people per year die as a consequence of a mosquito bite. Mosquitoes transmit what are known as vector-borne diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever or West Nile fever.
Not all mosquitoes are the same
Buzzing tormentors, bloodsuckers, annoying critters – mosquitoes have a lot of nicknames and can differ from each other just as much. There are regional differences, but their external appearance and their preferences also vary from mosquito to mosquito. About 3000 different mosquito species have been counted worldwide. In tropical and subtropical countries in particular, vector-borne diseases can be an unpleasant reminder of your trip. Approximately 100 species can be found in Europe. However, many experts assume that mass movements of tourists and the increase in international trade also means an ever-increasing number of exotic mosquito species such as the Asian tiger mosquito finding their way to Europe.
A threat to people in Europe
People in Europe are threatened by diseases transmitted by vectors – both from the region’s own ticks and mosquitoes and from travelling to endemic areas throughout the world. Every year in the European region, some 77,000 people are taken ill with vector-borne diseases.
Diseases that are transmitted via vectors are known as vector-borne diseases. A vector is a living organism (e.g. a mosquito) that transmits pathogens from an infected animal to a human or another animal.
In the European Union, many vector-borne diseases are classed as emerging infectious diseases. This means that a disease has now occurred for the first time or has already occurred previously but its frequency (incidence) and geographical distribution is quickly increasing.
