DAVID Delight Pro
The DAVID Delight Pro provides a unique fusion of audio-visual entrainment (usually referred to as AVE or brainwave entrainment) and cranial-electro stimulation (CES) with sophistication and simplicity.
The AVE sessions have been comprehensively tested, their design being based on the most current research findings, to ensure you get the most effective results.
The pre=programmed sessions on the Delight are supported by research studies to promote improvements in:
- Seasonal Affective Disorder
- stress reduction
- improved mood
- mental sharpness and balance (reduced risk of falling) in seniors
- reduced worry, plus improvements in concentration and memory in college students
The Delight Pro features 25 sessions (five sessions in each of the following five categories):
- Brain Booster/Brightener
- Mood Booster/Feeling Better
In addition, the Delight Pro has a further 3 gamma sessions, contained within a sixth, user-designed category.
Gamma brainwaves (defined as having a frequency between 30 to 100 Hz, with 40 Hz being of particular biological significance), help with attention, focus, binding of senses (smell, sight, and hearing). They also play a role in consciousness, mental processing, and perception. The visual system relies heavily on gamma brainwave activity too.
The Delight Pro also features night-vue ability, which allows the user to see the session select buttons in the dark at bedtime or at night.
The "PRO" model of the DAVID Delight also includes popular 100 Hz CES.
This can be applied with any of the AVE sessions to enhance their effect, or it can be used on its own (without AVE) to help with managing anxiety, low mood and pain.
What is CES?
Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES) is non-invasive and works by applying a tiny, pulsed electric current through small clips attached to the earlobes. This is completely painless and, if it's felt at all, it is as a gentle tingle. This small stimulus safely promotes the production of endorphins, as well as serotonin and noradrenaline neurotransmitters.
Current interest in CES was initiated by Robinovitch, who in 1914 made the first claim for electrical treatment of insomnia. In 1958, the book Electro-Sleep reflected the first serious works on CES. This book inspired research in Europe and in Eastern Bloc countries, as well as in South America, Asia and finally the US. Because the CES equipment used at that time was bulky, inconvenient and unreliable, CES was abandoned in favour of drug therapies.
However, the invention of the transistor in the 1960s meant that small, low-power and reliable CES devices were developed, and by 1975 several companies in the US and Europe were manufacturing CES devices for public use. During this time, research on CES was quite active and scientific papers were published.
Here's a short video clip, from the Mind Alive Inc team, giving a brief overview of CES
Most research studies to date have shown CES as a reliable method to reduce anxiety and improve cognition in recovering alcoholics. Additional studies have shown CES to be an effective tool in reducing situational anxiety and improving IQ. Situational anxiety includes many things, such as seeing a dentist, sitting exams, driving in busy traffic, job stress and so on.
Many people who have used CES along together with Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) have reported that they experienced deeper relaxation for prolonged periods of time. In addition to enhancing entrainment, CES increases neurotransmitter production. These neurotransmitters are necessary for information processing, memory, energy level and physical well-being.
Choose Your Preferred Eyeset - available in standard White or Multi-Colour
All Mind Alive kits are supplied with the standard White Tru-Vu Omniscreen Eyeset. If you prefer, you may select to upgrade to the Multi-Colour Eyeset instead. Simply make your selection using the drop-down menu (above)
The Multi-Colour eyeset enables you to further enhance your AVE experience.
Incorporating six extra colours - In addition to the standard white, you can now experience blue, cyan, green, yellow, red and magenta. You can also select separate colours for each visual field and random colour selection. Deep blue and green are highly recommended when running sleep sessions.
Blue - Calming and relaxing
Cyan - Shown to reduce risk of seizure
Green - Effective for pain reduction and meditation
Yellow - Improve cognition and focus
Red - Increase physical arousal and energy
Magenta - Best for contemplative meditation and enhancing creativity
