Flow Neuroscience

Improve your team’s mental wellbeing with Flow’s brain stimulation headset.

Flow is a wireless headset that treats depression using a non-invasive brain stimulation method called tDCS or transcranial Direct Current Stimulation. The Flow tDCS headset brings previously in-clinic techniques used to treat depression directly to your home.

This is a break-through device providing sufferers with an alternative depression treatment that can be used alongside medication and therapy.

Flow has been shown to treat depressive symptoms, including improved mood, sleep and lowered anxiety.

Key Features:

  • Wearable headset used by over 24,000 people.
  • 77% of people see clinical results within 3 weeks.
  • 58% of people are no longer clinically depressed at 10 weeks (in clinical trial).
  • Used by the NHS.
  • Rated ’Excellent’ on Trustpilot.

 

 

How does it work?

The Flow headset uses gentle stimulation to help the brain work better. It focuses on a part of the brain known as the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, or DLPFC for short.

This part of the brain helps us with our mood, staying focused, and with our sleep and eating habits. When it’s not working right, these things can be affected.

Flow works by sending a very small and safe electric current to the brain. This helps neurons in that region to “fire up” and make them more active. A more active DLPFC can raise mood and reduce depressive symptoms.

The Flow headset can be used at home without supervision, as you will be guided through the steps by a supporting behavioural therapy mobile app.

It only takes 30 minutes to stimulate and the sessions can easily fit into your schedule whenever it suits you best.

Weeks 1-3 – Stimulate for 30 mins 5 times a week.

Week 4+ Stimulate for 30 mins 2 times a week.
