BioTune is a wellness and meditation platform that combines sound, and vibration technology (VAT) with the BioTune app, providing effortless meditation and wellness.
The BioTune app makes meditation simple and effective by providing four categories of mental states that can be nurtured: relaxation, focus, energize, and transformation. The content in each category has been designed for maximum effectiveness through the verification process on test subjects with EEG and HRV and their baseline and response measures.
BodyWaves ™ are subsonic frequencies tuned to specific brainwaves which provide entrainment through immersive whole-body vibrations coupled with soundscapes to keep the experience engaging and soothing.
The programs range from 15 minutes to 90 minutes.
BioTune has several products to fit the needs of individuals and applications:
1. VBR8 Headphones incorporating vibration and tactile for an immersive experience.
2. VBR8 Massage Table for practitioners.
3. VBR8 Yoga Mats which are designed to be used in meditation and yoga studios.
4. VBR8 Chair for offices and production studios.
Sound wave therapy 3 to 5 times a week for 30 minutes promotes the well-being of frail elderly subjects via improved functional capacity, increased blood circulation to the skin, and decreased bone metabolism as evident by the increase in daily walking kilometers by 3 meters, bone density by 6%, fall in blood cholesterol by 8% and low density lipoprotein levels by 13% (Zheng et al., 2009)
30 minutes session of 40 Hz sound stimulation twice a week for over 6 weeks increases cognition, alertness, awareness of the surroundings, interaction, and storytelling abilities in patients with mild and moderate Alzheimer’s disease (Clements-Cortes et al., 2016)
