Remember when you had an exam the next day, but you just couldn't focus on studying? Or when you went to sleep so tired but you couldn't fall asleep? Or when you last felt under too much pressure to concentrate and get any work done? It is like you could not take control of yourself.And now imagine you can rewire your brain to connect a situation to the mental state that best suits it, by choosing yourself.
We believe that we`ve built a product upon which neuroscience researchers worldwide can build, to develop improvements and add further solutions.
In the very near future, neuro med-tech wearables will become the accepted standard to ease daily symptoms of burnout, insomnia, stress, lack of concentration and more.
Our functionality and state of mind depend on human emotions, such as anger, happiness, fear, love, sadness and depression.
Our brains and bodies run at different speeds, depending on what we are doing: while we sleep, the frequency is low, as it is when we are relaxed. When concentrating, or when prepped for study or creative thinking, this frequency is higher. affections.
Problems arise when, because of upper impact interferences, your brain frequency is not aligned with what you are trying to do or to achieve. We have all experienced how fear and stress inhibit you from thinking clearly and concentrating.
Don’t forget what happens to our concentration when we are in love! We may feel great, but we’re in big trouble if we have to concentrate on something other than the object of our
Now we are able rewire our mind and body, to connect a situation to the mental state that best suits it, by choosing your preferred state of mind yourself.
ELF emmit is a digital metronome which you control, choosing your preferred state of mind and allowing the device to suggesting how your mind and body should behave, the rhythm at which them operates.
This can be accomplished regardless of the fact that the brain frequency may not be aligned with what we are trying to achieve. It is a scientific fact that, in sleep and deep relaxation, our brains function from 1 to 5 Hz (beats) per second, while at high concentration they spike up to 30 Hz per second.
Brain waves are measured in cycles per second (Hz). The lower the number of Hz, the slower the brain activity, and vice versa. But wouldn’t it be great if we could shift our brain activity to match what we are doing? Now we can, with ELF emmit.
For generating electro-magnet pulses in our ELF headband, we use energy from your smartphone or tablet, with the same power that goes to headphones when we listen to the music. So if you feel comfortable and safe using headphones, you’ll be fine using ELF emmit.
Essence of our product is the incredible implementation of pulsed electro-magnetic stimulation in wearable med-tech gadgetry which allows us imitation of natural rythmic stimulus, converted into pure electro-magnetic pulses.
PEMS technology is not our invention, but we have harnessed it in this unique, wearable med-tech device. Research into PEMS has been conducted since the late 50s by American, Japanese, Indian and Chinese scientists and researchers. PEMS machines exist, but they are expensive and not customized for wide consumer use. It is akin to caressing our brains.
ELF emmit is not a device with an ON/OFF switch, but rather more of a personal assistant which we can use as an external source to coax our minds to work as we would like them to. When this happens, the brain responds by synchronizing its own electric cycles to the rhythm that ELF emmit produces.
The brain reacts to every color, voice, sound, loved one, dissatisfaction. In fact, each of these external stimuli leads to a sense of rippling in the brain. In the past, people used an extremely low frequency to achieve altered states of consciousness. Meditation along with the rhythmic sound of drums, gong therapy, steady flashing lights all transport you into a state of thoughtfulness and transcendence. Even the sound of rolling wheels when riding a train can put us to sleep. Different rhythms of music, a ticking clock, they all have their effects on us. The brain always adapts to the external frequency. We are now able to call on a little help from ELF emmit.
When the brain is presented with a rhythmic stimulus, such as a drum beat, for example, the rhythm is reproduced in the brain in the form of these electrical impulses. If the rhythm becomes fast and consistent enough, it can start to resemble the natural internal rhythms of the brain, called brainwaves. When this happens, the brain responds by synchronizing its own electric cycles to the same rhythm.
This is commonly called the Frequency Following Response (or FFR) and that is what we are trying to digitalise, using electro-magnetic pulsed stimulation (PEMS). In the past, people used extremely low frequencies to achieve altered states of consciousness (that’s what ELF stands for—extremely low frequency). Meditation along with the rhythmic sound of drums, gong therapy, steady flashing lights all transport you into a state of thoughtfulness and transcendence. Even the sound of rolling wheels when riding a train can put us to sleep. Different rhythms of music, a ticking clock, they all have their effects on us. The brain adapts to these external frequency.
The cerebellum is a region that plays an important role in motor control, and is also involved in cognitive functions, such as attention and language, and in regulating fear and pleasure responses, though its movement-related functions are the most solidly-established. The cerebellum is the link between our brains and our hearts, influencing the rhythm of the performance of both organs – their frequencies, depending on the situation we are in.
This is where our mind tells our body: slow down, there is no danger, calm down...or hurry up, we need to be concentrated! Brain frequencies are produced by masses of neurons communicating with each other, changing according to what we are doing or feeling. Different brain frequencies result in different states of mind.
Today the pace of life has grown increasingly rapid and stressful. For many, it is difficult to imagine taking the time to relax, to light a fire in your hearth and just sit and watch it, to meditate, to ride a train and fall asleep to the smooth sound of turning wheels. Playing drums or meditating in the middle of the office seem equally unimaginable. Elf offers an alternative—one that will not make you look weird.
ELF emmit's platform has promising prospects to ease symptoms of neurological diseases like Autism, ADHD, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and more. We have intentionally kept the platform open source, so that scientists and doctors can write new programs and develop new uses for the technology we provide. Yale and Cambridge researchers already requested units for further tests.
