The BioSelf team:
Headed by CEO Stefan Chmelik, CTO Dr Jacob Skinner, Chairman Dr Grant Allen PhD (ex-Google) and record breaking crowdfunder Nicholas Gill, BioSelf’s leadership team comprises of experts in integrated medicine, electrophysiology measurement, technology innovation and fundraising. Headquartered in London, the company draws on multiple years of collective experience.
Chmelik himself is the founder of the Harley Street-based New Medicine Group, which is the UK’s leading integrated healthcare centre. He is also the exclusive UK provider of the Satori ZRO VibrAcoustic Wellness System, which utilises similar principles as the SENSATE to help patients achieve meditative states. The Satori system has been used in USA for treating war veterans for PTSD and in hospitals for pain management.
People are busier than ever before – according to the World Health Organisation stress-related illnesses cost the UK economy £43bn each year ($300bn USA). Regular relaxation and meditation are well established as the most effective ways to self-manage stress; however few people have the time to learn or practise this important skill. BioSelf Technology has developed pioneering wearable technology which offers a solution to the growing stress epidemic in a time-poor generation.
The company has developed SENSATE, a world-first wearable device which tracks and decelerates stress in real-time. It uses novel technology which was developed and has been in operation in a Harley Street clinic over the last three years with highly successful results.
The SENSATE can be placed on the chest or clipped to clothing, and produces sub-audible engineered tones that are felt rather than heard – providing a pleasurable sensation that stimulates the important vagus nerve, which originates in the brainstem and extends to the heart, lungs, and other internal organs.
Stimulating the vagus nerve is scientifically proven to lower stress levels, however it is notoriously difficult to consciously control this nerve without years of meditation or yoga training; until now. SENSATE provides the highly desirable benefits of meditation to those who don’t have the time to practise.
