Sorosis Mini3 is a bit different. It actually helps you fall asleep faster, longer and better. Something for those that suffer from insomnia or other sleep disorders. The first is a condition that effects up to a third of people, the second is something practically everyone has experienced.
The thing works via something called CES (Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation) technology. Sorosis Mini3 is not FDA approved – at least not yet. But CES is. It is something that is sometimes used in mental therapy for conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), cognitive dysfunction, traumatic pbrain injury, pain and more. The technology works by stimulating the cranium and brain with a current that typically cannot be sensed by the person. It is a current below four milliamps.
Sorosis Mini3 is a device that makes CES available to all, to use from the comfort of their home. The promise is of better sleep – via something that is affordable and drug-free.
The device works by stimulating the craniuym and brain through the earlobes with the above mentioned low-intensity current. This resets the brain into a peaceful state which, in turn, helps you get some decent kip time. The idea is to change Beta brain waves to Alpha waves.
Simply power on the device. Then press the setup button to select time – the default is 20 minutes. Press the power-on button once again to commence the session. Finally, there’s also a +/- button that allows you to control the intensity of the current.
There are statistics that prove that the tech works. Mind you, the outfit behind Soros Mini3 has conducted the research so these are not third party studies. Regardless, CES is something that has been proven in practice to be beneficial.
The Kicstarter project allows you to choose between two devices. For those that just want to benefit from CES, Sorosis Mini3 will fit the bill. There’s also a Mini 3 Pro variant, that slaps on a sleep tracking monitor and smartphone app that dishes out sleep statistics and insights.
The device has gained some decent traction amongst the Kicktarter community. With more than a month to go it has already raised over $40,000 dollars, many times above its $5,000 project goal. If you suffer from insomnia or other sleep disorders the $119 Sorosis Mini3 might pique your interest. Usual warnings about crowdfunded projects apply.
