We have developed a unique miniaturized wireless earbud that stimulates the auricular branch of the vagus nerve in a safe, effective and comfortable way. Each earbud is custom made to the anatomy of the user’s ear ensuring the efficacy of the treatment which is not posible with standard devices.

Our auricular is an integrated device which allows monitorization of key physiological indicators with the aim to personalize treatment to the user’s needs and ensure the efficacy of the stimulation.

he Vagus Nerve (VN) is the longest cranial nerve which is the main component of the parasympathetic branch of the nervous system, being essential for recovery and balance in our mind and body.

Vagus Nerve activation slows down the activity of many organs such as the heart, lungs and stomach among others, producing relaxation and a healing process.

It’s activation by electrical stimulation (VNS) has been shown to be safe and effective in treating diseases and improving physical and cognitive performance.

The vagus nerve reaches the ear through its auricular branch (aVNS) where it can be stimulated in a non-invasive way. Auricular branch non-invasive stimulation has been shown to activate similar brain regions as invasive stimulation procedures.
