About the StressEraser
The StressEraser is an award-winning, portable medical device that relaxes the body and calms the mind in 15 minutes. The StressEraser can be used to quiet the mind before sleeping, rapidly relieve intense stress, and even to stay calm during highly stressful situations.
From beat to beat, your heart rate reflects the activity of your stimulating and pacifying nerves. The StressEraser displays these tiny changes as a wave. By watching your wave characteristics in realtime, you learn to adjust your breathing and mental focus. This decreases the activity of the stimulating nerves (thereby decreasing stress) and increases the activity of the pacifying nerves (thereby increasing relaxation).
The StressEraser’s list of honors includes:
- Best Self-Monitoring Health Initiative or Device, National Wellness Prevention & Fitness Conference (2007)
- Seal of Approval, American Institute of Stress (2007)
- Technology Innovation of the Year, Frost & Sullivan (2006)
- The Best of Gadget Lab (9 out of 10 rating), WIRED Magazine (2006)
The StressEraser is classified by the FDA as a Class II 510(k) exempt medical device. The StressEraser is available for $299, with a 30-night free trial, from the StressEraser web site at http://stresseraser.com. The StressEraser is currently available to U.S. residents only. Patents are pending.
