Award-Winning Wearable Technology Syncs with Music and Sends Pleasure
Signals to the Brain
BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The highly anticipated NERVANA nerve
stimulation technology exceeded its Indiegogo crowd-funding goal within
two hours of going live Tuesday. NERVANA launched the campaign to bring
its revolutionary electronic product to market. NERVANA combines science
and technology to make an ordinary experience extraordinary. It
synchronizes gentle nerve stimulation with sound, allowing the user to
experience music in ways never felt before.
NERVANA is a wearable product that sends a gentle electrical wave
through the left ear canal to stimulate the body’s Vagus nerve, while
syncing with music. This elicits a calm, relaxing feeling for users in a
natural way, which stimulates the brain’s pleasure center; known to
release neurotransmitters (the body’s feel-good messengers).
“NERVANA redefines wearable technology and marries it with the world’s
universal pastime – listening to music.” said Dr. Richard Cartledge,
co-creator and co-founder of NERVANA. “This combination adds a dimension
to the listening experience that will change the music industry forever.”
The only product of its kind, NERVANA debuted at CES 2016 in Las Vegas
earlier this year and generated industry and international buzz as one
of the most highly anticipated wearable lifestyle products. In fact,
NERVANA won the Techstars
award for “Lifestyle and Digital Health” during the Show.
The 40-day campaign continues with a special pre-sale price of $279
(plus shipping + handling).
NERVANA consists of a generator, which hosts the electrical signal to
stimulate the Vagus nerve, and a set of specially designed ear buds that
transmits the signal through the left ear bud. Users can activate their
NERVANA experience in three different modes: 1) synchronizing with a
music source (i.e., smartphone) connected through a standard audio jack;
2) ambient sound, such as music at a concert, that synchronizes the
signal with the performers’ live beat; and 3) without music for those
looking to generate stimulation waveforms internally without sound. Each
mode can be easily customized with simple buttons to control the
intensity level of the signal, ranging from 2 to 25, and a sensitivity
dial. NERVANA is portable and compatible with all digital music players
and it can be used virtually anywhere.
“The positive response we have received from industry experts at CES and
consumers across the globe has been overwhelming,” said Dr. Daniel
Cartledge, co-creator and co-founder of NERVANA. “We are so excited to
bring NERVANA to people worldwide starting with this first phase, the
launch of our Indiegogo campaign.”

“NERVANA promotes wellness in ways never imagined, said Ami Brannon,
co-founder and CEO of NERVANA. “That’s what NERVANA is all about –
making people feel good by simply pressing a button.”
About NERVANA, LLC
NERVANA was created by two brothers, Drs. Richard and Daniel Cartledge,
both practicing physicians, who have been fascinated by Vagus nerve
stimulation for decades. They had an idea to take the best part of vagus
nerve stimulation and provide it to users in a way that was easy to use.
In 2014, they formed NERVANA LLC, including medical and intellectual
property experts and engineers to make that dream a reality. The team
created NERVANA, a breakthrough product that stimulates the Vagus nerve
in harmony with tunes selected by the user.
This is the first of many products NERVANA, LLC is currently developing
that enhance our lives utilizing the exciting new science of
bioelectronics. NERVANA is based in Boca Raton, FL.
