Description
Sensate is a wearable that aims to reduce stress in real-time for those with a busy lifestyle who don't have time to meditate. It works by monitoring physiological markers controlled by the vagus nerve. The technology then "stimulates the pathway of the vagus nerve between the cardiac and esophageal plexi". It then "emits engineered infrasonic tones, experienced as pleasant, tactile, inaudible soundwaves, coupled with bespoke audio soundscapes through headphones", which is meant to condition heart and brainwaves.
