Frequently Asked Questions

ShoX is a Human Electro Muscular Incapacitation projectile that emits electro shock to a target when fired from a less-than-lethal projectile and incapacitates them for 30 seconds.

A dual barbed probed system is attached to the projectile’s electrical circuit. Pulling the trigger on the compatible weapon breaks open a compressed CO2/nitrogen cartridge inside the gun and fires the projectile into contact with a body and a charge flows into the muscles upon penetration of the skin.

Yes. ShoX uses "electro-muscular disruption (EMD)" technology. For example, a current applied to the arm will be reduced to .001 percent of the original signal by the time it reaches the heart.

ShoX has a 5 milliamp current and it takes at least 1,000 milliamps — 1 amp — to injure muscles, nerves and the heart. Higher amps, starting at 10,000 milliamps or 10 amps, cause the heart to stop and produce severe burns, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

ShoX completely overrides the central nervous system and causes an uncontrollable contraction of the muscle tissue, allowing the ShoX to physically debilitate a target regardless of pain tolerance or mental focus.

ShoX output is well below the level established as "safe" by the federal government in approving such devices as the electrified cattle fence. Any modern pacemaker is designed to withstand electrical defibrillator pulses that are hundreds of times stronger than ShoX output.

Yes. The proprietary design of ShoX only allows activation upon the dual barbed system penetrating the skin.

The unique capability of ShoX projectiles allows the user multiple shot options at the target. Should the user miss or engage a second attacker, they can fire more rounds as needed.

No. ShoX is a less-than-lethal projectile similar to a paintball projectile but produces a temporary shock to the human body.

No, ShoX is only available to law enforcement agencies and registered private security firms.

No, ShoX HEMI projectiles can still be deadly if used incorrectly. There is no guarantee that our projectiles are non-lethal as penetration on vulnerable tissue can result in death.

Yes, we ship internationally. Please contact us at info@xlabs.tech if you are interested to order from outside the United States.

No, currently ShoX is only available in the black/teal color scheme.

Currently ShoX is compatible with all Pepperball and Byrna launchers.

On skin, the most common effects are superficial burns or small puncture wounds, caused by the metal probes that deliver the current not being immediately pulled off after a person has been shot.

ShoX can cause muscle contractions, but do not appear to trigger the release of the muscle enzyme associated with muscle cell damage — creatine kinase.

For people without cardiac conditions, the electrical discharges of ShoX are too short to affect the heart muscle or cause abnormal heart rhythms. Even for those with cardiac conditions, the proper use of the device does not appear to cause issues.

Complications related to the brain or nervous system are rare, but may occur, including loss of consciousness, seizures, abnormal brain activity and confusion. This is more likely to occur if a subject is shot at a close range or directly to the head, which is NOT RECOMMENDED. The probability of causing a seizure is very low.

ShoX may contribute to falling, which can cause brain injury.

Users should assess subjects immediately after being subdued by a ShoX projectile for injuries.
