The software examines those impulses and can predict whether a stroke or seizure will occur a few hours in advance. Patients who are susceptible to neurological injuries are encouraged to wear it.

The development of software and technology for electrograms of electrical activity (EEG) supports brain research aimed at enhancing quality of life.

It's crucial to conduct study on brain activity in order to comprehend what causes particular emotions, how consciousness works, and why we behave in the way we do. People can lead happier, more fulfilling lives when the brain insights are properly interpreted. The most recent round of funding, a Convertible Note round, with a total amount of money raised in 2015.

The company created spectacles that emit blue light for 20 to 30 minutes, simulating natural sunlight and enhancing the body clock of the wearer. Through the retina, the particular light transmits messages to the brain, which alters the production of the melatonin, the hormone responsible for inducing sleep. The symptoms of jet lag are naturally decreased, energy levels are increased, and users get better sleep.

Customers can achieve their goals for a healthy lifestyle with the assistance of the goAYO app, which offers individualized therapy and advice based on science. They take a brief test after installing the app, which gives the program a sense of the body's typical rhythm and distinct wake-and-sleep cycle. The software then offers suggestions for regular modifications. Their most recent round of funding, totaling €190K, was raised by Eleven Ventures.

The Hapbee wearable from CES 2022 is another intriguing health-related device. This item can be used as a headband or as a stylish necklace. However, its primary goal is to make the user aware of the negative consequences of alcohol, caffeine, smoking, and prolonged sun exposure.

The creators tout Hapbee as cutting-edge technology. After all, some of our targeted consumables have low-frequency magnetic waves that can be recorded by this device.

The wearer's body receives a silent playback of the distinct frequency blends from the gadget. This enables people to become conscious of their routines. It also assists people to stay calm, focused, and to get enough sleep. Even better, it does so without causing any negative side effects in the wearer's daily life.
