SCIENCE BEHIND

Why NeoRhyhtm Works

PEMF therapy research studies have proven PEMF for being non-invasive, and entirely safe way,that  encourages our brain to mimic external signals provided by a device. 

If you’ve ever felt yourself grow sleepy while on a train ride, the repetitive chug-a-chug of the wheels lulling you to sleep, there’a s neurological reason for that. The rhythm of the wheels matches a brain wave state that encourages relaxing and sleep. Our brains take a cue from the movement of the train and mirror the rhythm. The result is that your state of mind shifts into sleep mode.

This is an example in everyday life of what PEMF technology does in a medical setting–and which you can now do at home, with NeoRhythm.

Brainwave Entrainment

Though it sounds like playing a game, Brainwave Entrainment is actually a thoroughly-studied, entirely safe wellness practice. Our minds function based on specific wave patterns that dictate our mood, particularly distinguishing between rest/relaxation/sleep mode and energy/focus/concentrain/study modes. But there are other, more specific wave patterns that promote activities like meditation/yoga and can even help to control pain.

The key technology at play here is called PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) and this is a tried and true approach, FDA-approved and in use by doctors for decades. 

The new approach is to offer devices that allow you to harness this beneficial technology for safe, comfortable easy use at home. NeoRhythm is the latest such device, and the first in the world to offer a gesture-controlled headband.

The NeoRhythm basically allows you entrain your brai. Entrainment is a term that we use that basically allows you to teach the brain to reach the desired states.

How Does NeoRhythm Work So Well?

NeoRhythm has been carefully programmed by a team of scientists to generate specific dominant rhythm (through controlled medium-intensity magnetic fields with a gauss range of 20-25, and accompanying lower-intensity frequencies of 2.5-5 gauss) that mirror the mind’s naturally-occurring wave frequencies. Each frequency matches a “state of mind” that we associate with specific activities. In this way, you can choose your preferred state of mind by selecting one of the NeoRhythm programs and your mind will seek to match NeoRhythm’s suggestion.

How Rhythm Influences Our Minds

Neural oscillations, also known as brainwaves, are reflections of repetitive electrochemical activity in the brain and central nervous system. They are similar to acoustic and optical waves as they also have a specific frequency and amplitude. Our every activity is reflected in the form of brainwaves with a dominant frequency and accompanying frequencies.

Gamma brainwaves have the highest frequencies (30 Hz+) and are dominant in states with heightened perception. Beta brainwaves (14-30 Hz) are dominant when we are awake and our consciousness is normally alert. Alpha brainwaves (9-13 Hz) are dominant when we are relaxed – still awake but less alert and perceptive. Theta brainwaves (4-8 Hz) are dominant when we are in a state of reduced consciousness – light and REM sleep, dreaming or deep meditation. Delta brainwaves (less than 4 Hz) are dominant when we are in deep sleep without awareness of our surrounding.

These frequencies of brainwaves are not just reflections of our state of mind – our state of mind can also be a reflection of these frequencies.

Harness the Power of Electromagnetic Force

Electromagnetism is one of the four fundamental forces in the universe and is responsible for innumerable observable phenomena in everyday life. NeoRhythm harnesses its power to produce frequencies that encourage the mind to function in your preferred state, from energy and concentration to sleep to pain control and beyond. 

NeoRhythm features five inverted coils, strategically placed across the comfortable headband, to produce harmless electromagnetic fields that emit waves in patterns that your mind seeks to immitate. 

The maximum magnetic flux used by NeoRhythm is 25 gauss, which is well within the range considered entirely safe for home use, and which have been scientifically-confirmed to be effective and harmless. 

Not Just about Frequencies…

Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) that generate frequencies to which the brain adapts and reaches a desired state of mind in the process of brainwave entrainment also affect the function of the brain in a more direct way.
PEMF technology has been used for decades as a treatment for various medical conditions such as chronic pain, fractures and depression.

When electromagnetic fields reach the brain, they produce small electrical currents, which stimulate blood perfusion, promote cellular repair and enable the cells to perform their function.

Targeted and Effective

NeoRhythm can be placed in any of 5 stimulating positions, each one designed to most directly and easily access the correct part of the brain to provoke your desired state of mind.

For example, if you choose the Energy & Vitality mode, it is best to wear the headband over the prefrontal cortex region. For Pain Control, the headband should be worn in a slightly lower position, at the back of the head or even around the back of the neck, to better access the parietal and temporal lobes.

Demonstrably Effective

NeoRhythm is not inventing the wheel, it is just perfecting it and making it as easy as possible to use a tried-and-true, deeply tested and demonstrably effective technology: PEMF. 

NeoRhythm employs scientifically-confirmed frequencies that have been FDA-approved, tested and studied for decades for both wellness and medical purposes. 

NeoRhythm does not rely only on the proven safety and efficacy of the pre-existing technology it employs. Our device has been tested and confirmed to be safe and effective in two double-blind, placebo-controlled studies conducted by members of the BION Institute for Bioelectromagnetics and New Biology. You can rest assured that NeoRhythm has been proven to be both safe and effective.

NeoRhythm Is Based on Numerous Studies and
Treatment Protocols

Hundreds of relevant scientific studies and publications have been reviewed and evaluated during our 3 (and more) years of research and development. Below is the list of core studies (most of them have been made on multi-coil systems) that have directed the research and shaped the design of our devices.
