Stress relief technology called NuCalm tested

By Tim Sandle     Feb 7, 2017 in Technology
The latest in stress relief techno – NuCalm – was released at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in the U.S. last month. The aim is to assist users in de-stressing from the pressures of modern life.
The Consumer Electronics Show is the main arena for launching the latest technologies for the forthcoming year. The 2017 show saw some 180,000 people examine over 20,000 new products. Some of these products will become the cutting-edge technologies we can’t live without, whereas others will fall by the wayside.
One area that is proving particularly strong is with technologies aimed at health and well being. Such product is NuCalm. The technology takes the form of a four-step relaxation treatment:
1. Dietary supplements and a topical cream to counteract adrenaline (adrenaline is the ‘stress’ hormone).
2. Microcurrent stimulation to trigger and enhance the body’s relaxation response.
3. Noise-dampening headphones with special audio software, passed on via the headphones, designed to synchronize brain waves to the pace of pre-sleep, triggering deeper relaxation,
4. A light-blocking eye mask.
Further information about how the device works are shown in the following video:
Essentially NuCalm works as a distraction aid, helping to take the user’s thoughts and feelings away from the humdrum of modern life.
The NuCalm package was assembled and created by Dr. G Blake Holloway. One of the chief selling points is that the NuCalm package aims to relax people without the use of drugs. It also aims at relaxing both the mind and the body. The NuCalm was selected by Engadget’s Deputy Managing Editor James Trew as one of the leading health products. Trew wrote on the website: “with headphones and eye mask on, I lie back and enjoy the most Zen 30 minutes I've had in the past few weeks.”
At the electronics show the NuCalm package was tested on over one thousand visitors and, according to Jim Poole, CEO of Solace Lifesciences, makers of NuCalm, in correspondence with Digital Journal, the device was a success and positive responses were received. The success of the launch led Innovation & Tech Today to issue an Editor's Choice Award for ‘Best Healthcare Technology at CES.’
