solution for all these type problems which has had some very good
success is the use of conductive threads in a bracelet form much
like a "Friendship Bracelet". This bracelet's fine conductive
threads perform what is called Corona Ionization. Corona
ionization causes ions to flow from the charged person to ground
(treadmill, grocery cart, grocery racks, car body etc.) and discharge
the person so gently that they do not know it is happening.
These threads have very small points
which allow ions to flow freely as soon as the person reaches a
high potential from the triboelectric charging from the treadmill.
The following video shows how the bracelet
works by Passive Corona Ionization. Notice the Van De Graff generator
charges and arcs repeatedly until the bracelet is held close to
it. The arcs cease during the time the bracelet is near the dome.
This is because it is drawing ions from the Van de Graff by corona
ionization unfelt by the wearer. It seems like magic but in fact
it is real physics.
