People are busier than ever before – according to the World Health Organisation stress-related illnesses cost the UK economy £43bn each year ($300bn USA). Regular relaxation and meditation are well established as the most effective ways to self-manage stress; however few people have the time to learn or practise this important skill. BioSelf Technology has developed pioneering wearable technology which offers a solution to the growing stress epidemic in a time-poor generation.
The company has developed SENSATE, a world-first wearable device which tracks and decelerates stress in real-time. It uses novel technology which was developed and has been in operation in a Harley Street clinic over the last three years with highly successful results.
The SENSATE is placed on the chest and produces sub-audible, engineered tones that are felt rather than heard, providing a pleasurable sensation that stimulates the important vagus nerve, which originates in the brainstem and extends to the heart, lungs, and other internal organs.
Stimulating the vagus nerve is scientifically proven to lower stress levels, however it is notoriously difficult to consciously control this nerve without years of meditation or yoga training; until now. SENSATE provides the highly desirable benefits of meditation to those who don’t have the time to practise.
