The headband helped 76% of users fall asleep an average of 48% faster by guiding brainwaves into deeper sleep patterns.


Summary: Elemind has launched a neurotechnology headband designed to enhance sleep by directing brainwaves into deeper patterns, reducing the time to fall asleep for most users. The headband, which integrates with a smartphone app for sleep analytics and customization, is backed by clinical studies and patents. Elemind’s technology includes features like AI Sleep Tailor and Deep Sleep Stimulation. The company, recently funded with $12 million, has initiated a beta program for early adopters.

Key Takeaways:

  • Elemind has developed a neurotechnology headband designed to improve sleep by directing brainwaves into deeper sleep patterns. Clinical trials showed a reduction in the time it takes to fall asleep for 76% of participants.
  • The headband works with a smartphone application for customization and sleep analytics, including tracking various sleep metrics and offering features like AI Sleep Tailor and Deep Sleep Stimulation.
  • The company recently secured $12 million in seed funding and launched a beta program for early adopters, providing early access and feedback opportunities.

Neurotech wellness company Elemind has launched a neurotechnology headband designed to improve sleep performance by directing brainwaves out of wakeful patterns and into a deeper sleep on demand. 

In a clinical trial, Elemind’s wearable shortened time to fall asleep in 76% of study participants, by an average of 48% faster and up to 74% faster.

“Through Elemind’s patented algorithm and neurotech, users will have the breakthrough ability to ‘start and restart sleep,’ giving them more control over their sleep and ultimately their daily performance,” says Meredith Perry, CEO and co-founder of Elemind, in a release. “Elemind works like noise-cancellation for the brain. You can switch off the world, switch off the stress, and go to sleep faster.” 

Features and App Integration

The Elemind headband features neuromodulation technology incorporated into a headband that can be worn at night or during a nap. The hardware pairs with a smartphone application which allows for increased customization and analytics, but is not required to start a session after initial setup. 

Elemind’s app experience is designed to provide sleep data and analytics, rolling out over the next few months during the beta launch and beyond. The app will track overall sleep performance, duration, efficiency, time to fall asleep, time spent in each stage of sleep, and movement throughout the night. 

Elemind’s emerging AI Sleep Tailor feature makes the system more effective over time, according to the company, based on individual sleep patterns, brain activity, and user feedback. Elemind’s Deep Sleep Stimulation Feature, neurostimulation designed to boost time spent in deep sleep and enhance sleep quality, will roll out via a firmware update later this year. 

The headband has an all-night battery life and can be charged during the day with a USB-C cable.

Clinical Trials and Research

Elemind’s neurostimulation technology is backed by five clinical studies (two of which focused on sleep) and seven patents (three granted, four pending). In the sleep trials, the company tested 112 subjects, accounting for 876 nights of sleep and 96 naps.

“Sleep is initiated by the brain, but very little innovation in sleep focuses on the brain directly. That’s where Elemind comes in and why we’re pioneering wearable neurostimulation that can rapidly and accurately measure EEG brain signals and deliver precise acoustic waves, to move the brain from wakeful patterns into a deeper sleep,” says Ryan Neely, PhD, vice president of science and research at Elemind, in a release.

Elemind’s neurotech sleep wearable is a general wellness device, not a medical device, and is intended for maintaining and encouraging a healthy lifestyle. The company’s recent close of its $12 million seed round, including funding by Village Global and LDV Partners, propelled the development of its debut product. 

Beta Program

Elemind launched a beta program for early adopters to try Elemind’s technology first. During our beta pre-sales period, purchasers of the Elemind headband receive a free 12-month membership, exclusive to early buyers. While in beta, the company will roll out new app features, allowing beta customers to be the first to have access and provide feedback. Customers can sign up on the company’s website. The product will ship later this year.
