Worn daily or while sleeping, our earbud device will be used to reduce symptoms of PTSD, while promoting faster recovery from traumatic events by delivering neurostimulation that responds to your own body’s stress signals.
Our non-invasive platform technology (transcutaneous VNS or tVNS) will be scalable to treat other indications including mild cognitive impairment, depression, epilepsy, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, insomnia, and autism spectrum disorder.
"The Phoenix is a potential game changer in the treatment of stress related disorders and PTSD. The Phoenix incorporates state of the art neuroscience and technology in an innovative design that resembles an earbud. Unlike other forms of vagal nerve stimulators, the Phoenix is a wearable with unique capabilities to monitor, evaluate, and interpret the impact of stimulation on dynamic change in vagal efferent function. By using the individual’s own vagal efferent pathways, the Phoenix optimizes vagal nerve stimulation to improve positive outcomes including stress reduction, feeling of calmness, and better sleep profiles."
