Modius is a wearable Headset, which stimulates the Vestibular Nerve through a low level transcutaneous current to aid weight loss. Vestibular stimulation through indirect neural pathways is thought to influence Hypothalamic function, which is involved in feeding and satiety behaviours. A pilot study has demonstrated on average 8% weight loss, in subjects who used the headset for 1 hour a day for 16 weeks. Larger studies evaluating the effect of this technique are being conducted.
We are delighted to be able to share our latest results and experience of this technique with the wider Neuro community, whilst discussing the science that underpins the theories behind the weight loss and the potential to adapt the technique to treat mood disorders and Neuro-rehabilitation
