Meditation Master – A headband for peace of mind
Stress less, focus more, and sleep better. Find your moment of Zen with Meditation Master.
Many of us struggle with finding peaceful moments with our packed schedules. Meditation Master is a lightweight, Bluetooth/WIFI-enabled headband that safely tracks and measures brain activity. Meditation Master uses a state-of-the art algorithm to develop personalized visual and auditory stimuli — gentle pulses of light or sound — helping you stress less, focus more, and sleep better.

Many of us struggle with finding peaceful moments with our packed schedules. Meditation Master is a lightweight, Bluetooth/WIFI-enabled headband designed help everyone find their zen — whether you’re looking to improve your focus, boost your creativity, get a better night’s sleep, or master your mindfulness.

Meditation Master uses noninvasive techniques to detect brainwave signals and provide you with personalized stimuli — gentle pulses of light, sound, or vibrations— to help you shift your focus and help your brainwaves change into a more relaxed, or “meditative” state.

Use your Meditation Master app to see your brainwave activity and trends over time. You can view your progress and learn more about when you’re at your mental best.

Meditation can be as simple as sitting quietly and breathing slowly, of being “in the moment.” It’s something that everyone can do, whether you’re a beginner, and enthusiast, or somewhere in between. The benefits of meditation are far reaching — improved attention, self-awareness, emotional regulation, and self perspective. Meditation Master can help you find your zen, anytime, anywhere.

Stay focused

Meditation Master can help you you increase your ability to ignore distraction so that you can rapidly remember and incorporate new facts into memory.

Stress less

Meditation Master can help you perform under pressure and lead to more positive emotions.

Sleep better

Sleep disorders are often closely tied to stress, and Meditation Master can effectively activate your body’s relaxation response, helping you get a better night’s sleep.

Meditation Master can be used anytime, anywhere — and is especially helpful when you’re feeling stressed out, unfocused, or overwhelmed.

Meditation Master tracks your brainwaves in an easy, safe, and portable way. While there are currently many EEG (electroencephalogram) products on the market designed to collect brainwave signals, most are unable to provide fast and accurate real-time analysis. Meditation Master differs from other brainwave monitors and by providing “personalized interference” — custom pulses of light or sound selected to help achieve a better state of mind.

Meditation Master is capable of connecting to Bluetooth and Wifi with an independent ID, and can be used either separately or in tandem with other devices.

  • One-stop configuration makes it easy to connect to devices
  • Cloud computing ensures personal data is processed safely and efficiently
  • Independent back-end servers allow users to access personal data and practice anywhere on any Meditation Master devices

More than 200 clinical trials have shown that Meditation Master can successfully aid the process of falling asleep, extend the amount of time spent in deep rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and reduce restlessness and arousals during sleep.

In 2009, Xiaowen Yang and Dongdong Liu met at The Margret & H. A. Rey Institute for Nonlinear Dynamics in Medicine (ReyLab), the world’s leading laboratory analysis of electrophysiological signals, where they both were researching sleep medicine. After analyzing a large amount of clinical data, Xiaowen and Dongdong proposed a bold idea that would combine modern medical technology and traditional eastern medicine – meditation.

They formed AlphaSense as a way to make this technology more accessible and with their team of engineers, designers, and meditation experts, developed Meditation Master as their first consumer product.

At CES 2016 in January, Meditation Master received critical acclaim and was ranked as Asian Smart Hardware Top 15 by TechNode. AlphaSense plans to develop an open-source ecosystem and community where people can share their knowledge of meditation, educational content and music.

Join the Meditation Master Developer Community

Meditation Master is developing an open source platform and we need your help. We’re looking for partners — individuals or organizations who are interested in collaborating on meditation focused content.

Meditation Master Consumer Neuromarketing Research Program

Neuromarketing services allows organizations to assess the true emotional impact of their websites, products, promotion or design. Meditation Master will be partnering with marketers, advertisers, and developers who are interested in Emotional Response Analysis (ERA) research, using EEG technology.

How will meditation help me?

The benefits of meditation are far reaching — improved attention, self-awareness, emotional regulation, and self perspective. There are many different ways to meditate, ranging from the scientific to the spiritual — whichever type of meditation you choose, spending time in a state of mental relaxation and mindfulness for just a few minutes a day can improve your mind, heart, and body.

How does Meditation Master work?

Meditation Master uses a brainwave analysis algorithm that matches your real-time brainwave status with an outside stimulus – music, light or vibrations. The music, light, or sound helps your shift your focus and help your brainwaves change into a more relaxed, or “meditative” state.

Is Meditation Master safe?

Yes. Meditation Master uses electroencephalogram (EEG), which is a very safe and painless technology that records the electrical activity of your brain. At no time is any electrical current put into your body. All products are in line with US and international safety standards for electromagnetic radiation.

How often can I use Meditation Master?

Meditation Master can be used as often as you’d like. We recommend at least once a day for 10-15 minutes. Meditation Master will automatically record your usage, and based on this will give you more advice on how to improve your practice.

Can the headband and cushion be used separately?

Yes. When used alone, the Meditation Master headband provides gentle light frequencies and can pair with the app to provide audio-visual entrainment. The vibroacoustic cushion contains a speaker and somatosensory vibration technology that is designed to relieve fatigue and stimulate microcirculation. It can be used on its own, but when paired with the headband, it provides more a comprehensive vibroacoustic therapy experience.

How do I charge the Meditation Master headband and cushion?

The headband  can be charged through a USB Type-C interface. Charging takes about 30 minutes. The cushion needs an external power source to work.

What’s the best way to clean the headband and cushion?

The headband should be wiped down with a clean, dry, cloth. Do not use water. The cushion comes with a removable, washable cover.

What sizes does the Meditation Master headband come in?

The headband comes in three different sizes. Please see the table below for more information.

Can the headband work without the app?

Yes. After the initial pairing with the app over Wifi, you can use the headband anytime, anywhere. As soon as you reconnect to Wifi, the headband will automatically sync your data with the app. In Bluetooth mode, you will need to have the app open to connect to your data.

What kind of data does Meditation Master collect? 

Our products currently only analyze structural brainwaves using noninvasive EEG technology. The EEG data can only infer your emotional state at the time and cannot track what you’re thinking about or feeling.

Which countries does Meditation Master ship to?

Mediation Master ships to more than 200 countries worldwide. If you are not sure if we ship to your country, please send an email to hello@alphasense.xyz and we will confirm.

Who do I ask if I have more questions?
