Science and Technology

Thync is a new category of wearable technology that acts in synergy with your mind and body.

The Thync Approach

A soothing neck massage. A splash of cold water. A kiss from someone you love. Each action influences peripheral nerves in your head and face, signaling brain regions to change the way you feel. Thync works using the same pathways by delivering low-level electrical pulses to these nerves.

Every day, your body balances the activity between your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The sympathetic system is associated with a "fight or flight" response to help regulate your reaction to stress. The parasympathetic system counteracts stress to help you enter a relaxed "rest and digest" mode.

Thync uses neurosignaling to activate specific cranial and peripheral nerves to influence this balance and shift you to a state of calm or give you a boost of energy in minutes.

Thync Neurosignaling
Neurosignaling: The Science

Neurosignaling is the coupling of an energy waveform to a neural structure (receptor, nerve or brain tissue) to modulate its activity.

Neurosignaling waveforms or Vibes consist of precise algorithms that bias activity of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, so that you can enjoy a shift into a more energetic or relaxed state.

Neurosignaling builds upon the best features of long-standing tDCS and TENS techniques by using pulsed currents with lower-intensity and higher-frequency outputs delivered through bio-compatible materials for greater safety and comfort.

At Thync, we have developed proprietary neurosignaling technology that delivers signals to the brain through three neural pathways:

Thync System: The Technology

The Thync System is an integrated set of components innovatively designed to deliver neurosignaling Vibes. Following years of development, engineering and testing, the Thync System is uniquely designed to fit into active lifestyles.

The Thync Module and Strips represent groundbreaking advances in technology. From the elegant curved design and fit of the lightweight Module, to the bio-materials used in Thync Strips, to the simplicity of the App, the System is designed to be easy, comfortable and effective in a variety of lifestyle applications.

Thync Safety

Thync is the result of years of research and development by Thync neuroscientists and engineers. Thync Vibes were safely tested on several thousand individuals under a variety of conditions to optimize their performance and comfort.

The Thync System builds upon more than 40 years of extensive research, documentation and consumer use that supports the safety and tolerability of our limited output neurosignaling approach.

The Thync System is a low-risk transdermal neurostimulation device intended for lifestyle use at home, work, or in wellness applications to temporarily induce mental relaxation or calmness or to temporarily increase energy, awareness, and alertness. The Thync system is a safe and low-risk device. It is not intended to treat or diagnose any disease or medical condition.

If you are susceptible to Reflex Syncope (fainting) for example, as a result of donating blood, getting a shot or due to anxiety then please consult your physician before purchasing a Thync System.

Based on intended use and output characteristics, the FDA notified Thync that its device is not subject to medical device regulations requiring pre-market clearance or approval.

Thync Testing

Thync Vibes are the culmination of testing on thousands of subjects conducted internally by our scientists, externally through our university collaborators, and by our early adopters in the real world. We capture, record, and analyze data such as heart rate, heart rate variability, galvanic skin response, pupil diameter, and EEG to quantify how Vibes influence the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. We monitor biometric signals, assay psychophysiological variables, and conduct psychometric evaluations.

We have developed a technology that can consistently, and in a statistically reliable manner, beat the placebo effect. Our studies incorporate the use of placebo controls in blind tests under a variety of experimental conditions. All studies are performed using IRB-approved protocols and procedures.

“Thync is foremost a science and data driven company. Thync has produced a technology considered impossible only a few years ago. This platform shows tremendous promise.”
