Halo Sport works through a process called Neuropriming. Halo Sport is worn before or during physical training, and the device's soft foam Primers deliver a small amount of electrical stimulation to the brain’s motor cortex.
Neuropriming with Halo Sport places the brain’s motor cortex in a temporary state of “hyperplasticity,” or hyperlearning. When paired with athletic training, Halo Sport facilitates the development of stronger, more optimized neuromuscular output. Improved neuromuscular output leads to more precise, coordinated, and/or explosive movement — whichever the athlete targets during training. In other words, Neuropriming refines the brain’s ability to learn and adapt to athletic training, which allows athletes to achieve results faster.
Scientists have rigorously analyzed the benefits of various types of neurostimulation over the past fifteen years, including transcranial direct current stimulation (abbreviated “tDCS”). Hundreds of peer-reviewed academic papers document the efficacy, reliability, and safety of tDCS for motor skill performance. In addition, Halo’s team of doctors and neuroscientists conducted thousands of hours of in-house testing before beginning to design Halo Sport.
