NERVANA wearable lifestyle device, the first vagus nerve stimulator synchronized to music, that elicits a calm, relaxed feeling.
NERVANA debuted at CES earlier this year and generated industry and international buzz as one of the most highly anticipated wearable lifestyle devices at the exhibition. It won the TechStars award for “Lifestyle and Digital Health” category.
Combines science and technology to make an ordinary experience extraordinary. It synchronizes nerve stimulation with sound, allowing the user to experience music in ways never felt before.
NERVANA is a wearable device that sends a gentle electrical wave through the left ear canal to stimulate the body’s Vagus nerve, while syncing with music.
This elicits a calm, relaxed feeling for most users in a natural way, which stimulates the brain’s pleasure center, known to release neurotransmitters (the body’s feel-good messengers).
In more technical terms….A central signal-processing circuit receives both music and stimulation signals and routes those signals appropriately to the two ear buds. The right ear bud receives only the right channel of the music signal, which is output to a hand-picked, high-fidelity speaker in the right ear bud.
The proprietary left ear bud, in comparison, not only receives the left channel of the music signal at its speaker, it also receives the stimulation signal within the ear bud material itself, to deliver electrical stimulation to the inside surface of the ear canal and, thereby, the Vagus nerve.
