Muse® by Interaxon Inc. Just Gave Us a New Reason to Medita
Capitalizing on the award-winning neurofeedback developed for both the Original Muse and Muse 2, Muse S allows users to comfortably go from daytime use into bedtime prep and introduces Go-to-Sleep Journeys that react to your body and mind.
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Muse® by Interaxon Inc., a leading consumer neurotechnology and meditation company, today announced the launch of its newest product, Muse® S. This multi-sensor fabric headband offers a new way to access biofeedback-enhanced meditation, and promote healthy pre-sleep habits for restorative sleep.
Building on the company's current roster of award-winning neuro and biofeedback devices, Muse® S offers a versatile, soft and flexible form factor as well as newly introduced Go-to-Sleep Journeys. The Go-to-Sleep Journeys seamlessly blend voice guidance with biofeedback soundscapes that respond to your physiological state for a truly personalized bedtime soundtrack that helps you learn how to turn off your busy mind and let the world melt away - day or night.
"We wanted to offer our users improved ways to hack their bedtime ritual through responsive guidance, neurofeedback and tangible data," said Chris Aimone, Muse® Co-Founder and CTO. "Muse® S was designed with two key things in mind: to bring meditation to even more aspects of your life, and to take the advanced neurotechnology we are known for and compile it all into a versatile and extremely comfortable EEG headband that is optimized for a truly unique relaxation experience."
Made from plush, breathable material, Muse® S is designed for improved fit and signal quality on a wider variety of head sizes. With stretch fabric that is travel-friendly, Muse® S is our most comfortable Muse® ever—so comfortable you'll love meditating with it anytime, anywhere.
Imagine slipping into bed with your Muse® S, starting a Go-to-Sleep Journey like "Enchanted Forest" or "Underwater World," tucking away your phone, and closing your eyes. Guided by the calming voice of your selected meditation teacher, you'll be taken through a soothing and responsive journey, designed to move your wandering mind away from the busy thoughts that keep you awake and gently guide you into a restful slumber.
Each Go-to-Sleep Journey has its own unique soundscape, which is made up of individual sounds that reflect different feedback centers including brain activity, heart rate, and movement. These individual feedback sounds are layered in real-time to work together to create a personalized soundscape that reflects changes in your physical and mental states - a personalized sleep soundtrack, shaped by you in real-time!
In addition, when you purchase a monthly or yearly Guided Meditation Subscription, you'll have access to a rich content library of more than 300 meditations from renowned meditation teachers. The extensive content also offers a variety of relaxation techniques, Go-to-Sleep soundscapes and curated guided mediation collections geared to a particular condition or goal (e.g. sleep, performance, stress and more). For beginners or those who want even more guidance, the subscription provides in-depth courses with step-by-step instructions, such as The Sleep Basics course by Dr. Shelby Harris, an expert in behavioral sleep medicine.
