Life got you stressed? Too much of mental clutter? Consider the project that was just demoed at the Medicine 2.0 Congress at Stanford, from a medtech startup called Brain Bot.
The company’s system consists of a head-worn, visor-like device and connected software. When put on the head the device tracks the brain’s spontaneous electrical activity. In the demo given to Med 2.0 attendees, Brain Bot reps showed what is supposedly the first step to improving mental health, which is clearing the mind of all thoughts and distractions for ten seconds. The task, which they describe as “powering your brain battery”, was surprisingly difficult, even for the rep. The noise of the conference hall and the crowd of attendees watching eagerly actually had an effect, as we could see the rep’s brain activity fluctuate, and he even had to repeat the process again.
After powering your brain battery, the Brain Bot software is designed to provide various exercises and track participant’s progress as it helps to clear the mind of mental clutter.
