New Mobile Solution Aims to Improve Mental Health

New Mobile Solution Aims to Improve Mental HealthWearable devices and mHealth resources are not in short supply at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. But mobile innovations designed to improve mental health are not quite as plentiful, which is why InteraXon is getting plenty of attention today at CES.

InteraXon is behind a new brain-reading, stress-reducing, concentration-improving headband called Muse.

“With 100 billion neurons that receive, process and send thoughts and impulses throughout the body, the power of the brain is virtually limitless,” the Muse-maker says. “We’re helping create ways to tap into that power and harness it in amazing ways. And have some fun along the way.”

The Muse headband lets users have their brainwaves read and engage in “mind controlling activities” to help strengthen the brain.

Sporting 7 EEG sensors, data is transferred from the brain back to a smartphone or tablet over Bluetooth LE. This enables the creation of exercises designed to help settle one’s mind and improve concentration.

The team at InteraXon says their goal is to help users improve their brain health by generating a range of brain signals and helping you learn how to relax and focus.

InteraXon expects to launch the Muse this Spring at a suggested retail price of $299.
