increasing dependency on wireless technology has led to daily radiation exposure from cell phones, laptops and gadgets. this is of particular concern to males as compiling research has shown that radiation has direct and adverse impact on men’s reproductive health. in fact, one recent study found that men who carry their phone in their pocket or on their belt had lower sperm counts and more immobile sperm than men who did not. this comes as grave news to many, especially in light of the fact that over 15% of couples within reproductive age struggle with fertility issues.

spartan provides a solution to this growing health concern. the pure silver fiber sewn throughout the cotton weave acts as an electromagnetic shield, blocking 99% of radiation from cellphones and wi-fi. additionally, the silver prevents bacteria from proliferating and, in doing so, eliminates odors that may build up throughout the day. therefore, the boxer briefs stay fresh all day, no matter how active one can be.

although aware of the harmful effects of radiation, menard and his co-founder pierre-louis boyer still faced the reality that storing their smartphone in their pocket was a hard habit to break. they were determined to find a solution that would not interfere with their lifestyle: so by combining their extensive backgrounds in engineering and business, menard and boyer created spartan with this common purpose.
