At HealthOne, we are passionate about proactively working on our cognitive health through meditation and mindfulness training.
Combined with our love of the latest and most cutting-edge technology, we couldn’t be happier to announce our new healthy living partner, Muse® by Interaxon Inc.
Muse®: Technology Enhanced Meditation
Muse is a brain sensing headband that uses research-grade EEG technology to help guide your meditation practice.
It monitors brain activity to give real-time feedback through auditory cues. When your mind is calm and settled, you hear peaceful weather.
As your focus drifts, you’ll hear stormy weather that cues you to bring your attention back to your breath.
The recently launched Muse® 2 provides even more insight on your meditation practice on top of brain activity through three additional biosensors that include real-time feedback on heart rate, breathing, and body movements.
At HealthOne, we know that building a meditation practice into your routine can be challenging, and that’s why we recommend Muse®.
To keep you motivated, the Muse® Meditation App will show you how your brain, heart, breath, and body did from moment to moment through simple, easy to understand graphs and charts.
You can view your whole session at once, find out the amount of time you remained calm during a session and get helpful tips on how to improve future scores.
The app also offers challenges and rewards for staying engaged with your practice.
“Meditation is an important part of connecting us to ourselves and everyone we care about. But it’s not always easy! Muse®can help us develop and refine our practice.”
– HealthOne Chief of Staff, Dr. Dhanjit Litt
Meditating with Muse® Works
A recent study at the Catholic University of Milan showed that four weeks with Muse® created a physiological change akin to a more relaxed baseline brain state and improved cognitive performance, compared to controls.
In a separate study through Partners Healthcare’s Center for Connected Health, study participants who used Muse® showed a measurable reduction in stress and increased resilience. Read about the study here.
Coming Soon: New Premium Content
Our practitioners at HealthOne can’t wait to try the upcoming release from Muse®; a premium content offering that will contain hundreds of guided voice meditations from leading meditation teachers, as well as the integration of intelligent voice guidance with biosignal feedback – together providing an unparalleled level of personalized coaching in the meditation app space.
“This level of personalized meditation guidance with responsive feedback brings a whole new dimension of individualized coaching.”
– Chris Aimone, Muse® Co-Founder and CTO
We are excited to be carrying both the Original Muse® and Muse 2 at the HealthOne Hub! Our Health Advocates are always available to answer all of your questions about using this technology to take your meditation practice to the next level.
