Project title: Efficacy Study of VibroAcoustics Sound Massage (VSM) – Phase 1
“Stress is a global pandemic. We are constantly subject to information consumption through technology and our senses, leaving very little room for our mind and body to regenerate. We are being overloaded with information and are overworking our brains, which activates a stressed “fight or flight” response. There has been a focus in the recent past on yoga, meditation and alternative practices which allow the body to enter a state of equilibrium, and the VibroAcoustics Bass Module is one of these.
Vibroacoustic therapy uses low-frequency sonic vibrations as an effective and non-invasive way to stimulate the vagus nerve, which activates the parasympathetic nervous system or a “rest and digest” state.
This research is a feasibility study measuring the efficacy of the VibroAcoustics Bass Module on perceived stress, validated with biosignal measurements. The study quantifies sound and sonic vibration using EEG and ECG data, to determine the effects of the vibroacoustic modality on stress. The project is a collaboration between University of Southern Denmark, VibroAcoustics and CURVEX, as funded by the DSC.”
