Sana helps wearers achieve the same benefits as long-term meditative practices through the use of audiovisual stimulation. The health wearable delivers low-light and sound in a way that synchronises brain activity to trigger relaxation.
Meditation has several scientifically proven benefits, including reduced stress and anxiety, improved sleep, and better attention. Traditional meditation doesn’t come easy to everyone, even when guided by helpful tools and meditation apps. Alternatively, there are other methods for achieving the same benefits from a meditative state.
Sana is a headphone and mask wearable health device that helps users achieve deep relaxation. The easy to use, safe device uses audiovisual stimulation (AVS) to calm the wearer. AVS works by stimulating two senses, hearing and sight, in a specific way. When light and sound are administered in a precise pattern, it affects the central nervous system and evokes relaxation.
The wearable health technology delivers light through closed eyes while coordinating sound over a 16-minute session. The non-invasive medical device, and relief sessions are non-addictive. The headset comes with a storage case for portability and can measure heart rate variability (HRV), helping to track well-being.
The accompanying app monitors the use of the device and allows the self-reported tracking of pain, mood, and sleep quality to see progress over time. The Sana can be purchased on a subscription basis, with the longest and cheapest being $99/month over eighteen months. To date, small clinical studies have been undertaken in opioid drug dependence, fibromyalgia and sleep deprivation.
