Halo Sport uses a neurostimulation technique called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). tDCS applies very low levels of constant electrical current to the brain area of interest via electrodes on the scalp. With Halo Sport, this current is delivered by gray foam pads (Primers) along the band of the headset. This causes an increase in activity in the motor cortex, and allows for more optimized signals from the brain to the muscles.
Halo Sport builds on decades of academic research surrounding tDCS and other types of non-invasive brain stimulation. In the Research section of our Science page, you will find our white papers (research done with Halo Sport, not yet published) as well as links to many relevant peer-reviewed studies that speak to the efficacy and safety of Halo Sport's technology.
