'The HECS StealthScreen suit blocks the tiny electrical discharges from your body.
Some marine animals can detect your body's tiny electrical discharges. We know that when you move your muscles signals are sent down nerve fibers and the movement of the muscles themselves generate tiny electrical signals. Some marine creatures can 'see' these signals and they don't use their eyes to 'see' in this case. That explains, for example, how rays can detect the movement of mollusc and fish when they are hidden under the sand!
These suits block the electrical discharges from your body and that means you can get closer to many marine creatures to get better photographs.
They also mask your body's signals from sharks but these suits should not be relied on as a primary protection mechanism from unpredictable and dangerous predators that have other effective senses too.
