The Problem

Before and after a surgical procedure, patients may experience:

  • Fear, stress and anxiety

  • Reactions to anesthesia

  • Increased pain perception

  • Risk of addiction to post-operative opioids (painkillers)

How is music curated and sequenced to enable rhythmic entrainment different from listening to commercially available music ?

Our patented process leverages music chosen to enable rhythmic entrainment, helping the body and mind relax.

Rhythmic Entrainment Music/Playlists

  • Music is curated and sequenced, and clinically proven to synchronize the heart rate and breathing
  • Music is purely instrumental, which more relaxing and more conducive to rhythmic entrainment
  • Playlist sequence is specifically designed to encourage entrainment rapidly
  • Music is specifically chosen to be unfamiliar to avoid potentially negative associations

Commercial Music/Playlists

  • Songs/genres not specifically designed for relaxation or to engage rhythmic entrainment
  • Music often contains lyrics
  • Random order of songs/playlists
  • Music is often familiar and can bring up unpleasant associations
