Did you ever imagine that you will be able to own a wearable that will allow you to shift mental states in minutes? Well, with the mission to ‘unlimit people’, Isy Goldwasser and Dr. Jamie Tyler founded Thync in 2011. By 2015 they introduced us to a sleek neurosignaling device named Module, which was their first consumer wearable, developed over a 4 year period of clinical research by a team of neuroscientists and engineers.
Now fast forward to 2016 and Thync is getting ready to launch its next product in 2017. Thync Relax, similar to The Module, delivers low energy wave forms to safely stimulate the nerves of your head, face and neck. Offering consumers a chemical-free way to physiologically lower stress, the device is a great replacement for those taking pills like Xanax so they can lower their stress and anxiety.
A second generation wearable, Thync Relax has been created with a renewed focus on stress relief and sleep aid. Design wise, the new device is a Bluetooth like neck band that wraps around the back of the neck to stimulate your nerves. Besides the continuous enhancements to the software programs, the biggest perk is that the easy to use band commands a consumer friendly price.
With $20m in research and development supporting Thync’s core technology, how exactly does it work? Well, when you wear the product it stimulates the nerves in your head and neck with low-level electrical pulses that send a signal to your brain to change the way you feel. Acting on your brain’s adrenaline system, Thync should be used regulary, about 4-6 times per week, to get the best results. Scientifically proven to cause no harm, it is recommended that you run each vibe 3-5 times in order to discover the level that works best for you. Once you do that, you will hit your ‘sweet spot’ each time you use it.
Thync is not alone when it comes to wearables designed to improve our mental wellbeing. Brands like Vinaya also promise us a life of zen via the latest technology. On the product, Thync Senior Advisor Dr. Eric G. Potterat, stated, “If you get people to control their stress response, they will be able to control their performance in any environment”. No truer words have been spoken, so if you are ready to invest in a product such as Thync, you must be willing to commit some time to learn how it works so you can get the best effects, otherwise this might not be the wearable for you.
