A taser device is a highly effective, highly Technical and highly dangerous tool of non-lethal self-defense.
Tasers are electric shock devices that are used by law enforcement officers, Security Professionals and consumers worldwide.
The name taser is an acronym for Thomas, a Swift’s electric rifle.
Based on the science fiction, novels written by Edward Stratton Meyer the inventor of the taser device Jack cover chose this name.
Because he was a big fan of the novel, it was first patented in 1969 and has been used by the military since 1974 and by law enforcement.
Since 1976 in those early days, tasers were limited to law enforcement officers and military personnel.
Only because they could only be operated with a wired connection to a 12-volt battery.
The first Wireless version of the taser, the device was introduced in 1993 which turned out to be a game-changer as it made it possible for civilians to carry this powerful self-defense, too.
Everywhere, they went a taser.
The device is a highly effective highly Technical and highly dangerous tool of non-lethal self-defense.
It incapacitates the target for up to 30 seconds by directly delivering a powerful electrical shock to the muscles.
This shock interferes with the transmission of signals between the brain and the body’s muscles causing complete paralysis.
The basic design of a taser device has remained essentially unchanged since it was patented in 1974 by Jack cover.
The first models were bulky heavy and expensive.
They resembled large pistols, but they have become smaller and lighter over time.
The latest models are small enough to fit in your pocket or be worn on a belt clip.
