New Headset May Help People Get Better Sleep
Written by Eli Ben-YehudaOn November 12, 2019
The Headset For Sleep
Modius SLEEP, launched on Tuesday by Belfast-based company Neurovalens, has been described as powered by neuroscience to optimize sleep health without medication.
The headset, recommended to be worn for 30 minutes before bed, actively stimulates the key sleep neurons in the brain, reducing the time it takes to nod off and helping the user to stay asleep for longer.
It is described as working by sending a safe electrical pulse into the vestibular nerve, influencing the areas of the hypothalamus and brain stem that control circadian rhythm and sleep patterns.
The headset has been launched on American crowd-funding website Indiegogo.
The company previously launched its first headset, Modius SLIM, which was designed to help people lose weight, on the same website.
The Science Behind It
Neuroscientist Dr Jason McKeown from Portglenone, Co Antrim, is behind the sleep headset.
He said: “After gathering feedback from thousands of SLIM device users around the world, what we found was that improved sleep was a welcomed bonus reaction and this became our motivation for making specific changes to our technology to create Modius SLEEP.
“Our new headset taps into the power of the brain’s hypothalamus, which acts as a mini-computer and influences many areas of the brain, including weight loss and sleep.
“Our continued aim is to help people avoid sedatives and sleeping pills as they only mask the underlying problem and come with a host of nasty side-effects.
“We use neuroscience to improve lives through safe, innovative, non-invasive products and we have complete confidence our SLEEP device is just as life-changing as our SLIM device continues to be.”
Neurovalens is a Belfast-headquartered global health-tech company that develops non-invasive neuro-stimulation products aimed at improving health using drug-free neurological solutions.Tags:
