Cove neckband applies gentle vibrations behind the ears to reduce stress

Nowadays, there are many wearables and enormous gadgets to choose from that help improve our health. Now, Feelmore Labs, a health and wellness technology company, has unveiled a new wearable device that is scientifically proven to effortlessly reduce stress and improve sleep.

The device, called Cove, is a neckband that hooks over your ears and silently applies gentle vibrations behind the ears that initiate a natural biological pathway between the skin and the brain. The gadget is able to activate the part of the brain that regulates anxiety, leading to a profound and durable sense of calm.

According to the company, wearing this for 20 minutes a day, even during other work, is enough to feel the improvement. At the same time, the use of Cove can be combined with any other activity – from yoga to reading, because it does not distract.

Cove developers assure that their technology has a scientific basis and is approved by scientists. An experiment in the field of neurobiology showed that after 30 days of using the device, 41% of respondents noted an increase in stress resistance, 50% reported an improvement in the quality of sleep.

Cove was created as a simple tool to effortlessly build resilience to stress, better equipping you to deal with it as it arises, while also improving sleep. As Cove doesn’t require dedicated time or effort, our goal is for users to seamlessly incorporate it into their daily routines, using it as a resource to find a healthy balance between stress and relaxation. Cove helps you put on peace of mind,” said Francois Kress, Co-Founder, and CEO of Feelmore Labs.

The wearable device actually “helps the mind to calm down.” It comes with a companion app (available on iPhone and Android) that can be used to track your progress. In the future, heart rate and motion data collected during each session will be used to report stress measurements of the user.

Users will be able to anonymously share company data to improve the product. But the exact timing of Cove’s release and its price has not yet been announced.
