Thync – A Wearable Mood Changer
Falling asleep at work? Can’t fall asleep at night? Stressed? There is a new wearable that just might be able to help you with that. While many wearables can be used to monitor your body, one company has come up with a device called Thync that they claim changes the way you feel.
Thync attaches to your forehead using adhesives and uses low-energy waveforms that the company calls Vibes, to signal neural pathways in your brain. Depending on the setting, it can energize or calm.
As I read about the device, my eyes glazed over as I read some of the more technical descriptions of how it works. I got lost somewhere around Neruosignaling sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, and decided to see who was working on this technology. I was reassured by what I found.
Thync was developed by the neuroscience and engineering experts from Stanford, Harvard and MIT. Over $15 million has been spent on research and development and the device has been tested on thousands of people. They record things like heart rate, pupil diameter and EEG to see how the device affecting the test subject. The results have been encouraging. Many people have found the device to work as advertised.
Is it safe? Here is a link to a safety report. I got through the title and the names of the authors before I got lost. If you scroll down to the bottom of the first paragraph, it does say they found it to be safe for repeated use across extended periods.
It is a bit pricey at $299.00, but for people who fight insomnia or fatigue, it might be worth a try. It does comes with a 30 day money back guarantee.
