DAVID Delight Plus
The DAVID Delight Plus is an innovative portable hand-held device that offers a non-pharmaceutical approach to wellness using Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) technology. By using flashing lights and pulsing tones, the Delight Plus provides a non-invasive way to achieve peak mental and physical well-being
Research shows that AVE can effectively and quickly dissociate, guide the brain into various brainwave states, increase neurotransmitter production, and increase cerebral blood flow.
The Delight Plus sessions are supported by the most current research studies in the areas of stress reduction, insomnia, improved mood, mental sharpness and balance (reduced risk of falling) in seniors, and reduced worry, Seasonal Affective Disorder, improvements in concentration and memory in college students. The Delight Plus sessions also include our proprietary randomization process, which helps encourage dissociation and brain frequency tracking to the stimulus, to ensure you the best results.
The Delight Plus features 28 sessions (five sessions in each of the following categories plus 3 gamma sessions in the user-designed category - see description below):
- Brain Booster
- Feeling Better
Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) is a technique that utilizes pulses of light and sound at specific frequencies to gently and safely guide the brain into various brain wave patterns. By altering your brain wave frequencies, you have the ability to boost your mood, improve sleep patterns, sharpen your mind and increase your level of relaxation, all with the simple push of a button! AVE also increases brain health by increasing cerebral blood flow and stimulating beneficial neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, norepinephrine, and endorphins.
Gamma brainwaves help with attention, focus, binding of senses (smell, sight, and hearing), consciousness, mental processing, and perception. The visual system relies heavily on gamma brainwave activity. The ability to recognize novel objects against a background of similar objects is due to gamma activity. So, something as simple as driving a car would be difficult if it were not for gamma. It has been found that gamma activity increases in the brain area related to the task being performed. Mismatches in gamma/theta modulation, called thalamocortical dysrhythmia, are found to be associated with poor memory, tinnitus and chronic pain.
AVE at gamma frequencies has been shown to dramatically reduce amyloid deposits in mice that have been genetically modified to develop Alzheimer’s disease. However, because the mice were transgenic, this doesn’t prove that gamma stimulation will work with humans with Alzheimer’s, but it is hopeful. Another study from Georgia Tech by Singer et al showed gamma AVE produced several beneficial types of cytokines in wild mice and these effects will likely apply to humans.
The gamma sessions are:
1 - SMR/gamma - cycles between 40 Hz and 12 to 15 Hz (SMR) every few minutes. Calms the body while boosting mental sharpness.
2 - Randomized 38 to 42 Hz – another approach/option using randomization.
3 - Fixed at 40 Hz – based on the study to boost cytokines.
