In some Swedish public schools, the teachers were worried that the recently installed WiFi network could have a harmful impact on the children. 

Therefore Ramboll was requested to check the EMR levels in the classrooms. Measurements were performed both in classrooms during education while the pupils were using their tablets/PCs, and in empty classrooms. 

The measured values were compared with the limit values set by legislation, and the result was a report with very low radiation levels, due to the design of the WiFi network. The measurements also demonstrated that a contributing factor to the low EMF levels was the poor mobile coverage in the areas of the schools.
