The Science


SmartSound™ is a Medical Device

NeuroSonica SmartSound™ is a multi-functional new 'brain audio' genre delivered in mobile app format.  As a hybrid audio technology, it combines a number of evidence-based therapeutic sound technologies with wide ranging applications and benefits. 

SmartSound is included as a Class 1 Medical Device in the Australian Government’s Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). Contraindications and age limits apply.

Our ARTG listing means that:

  •  we are offering a regulated therapeutic audio technology that may produce a variety of evidence-based benefits and effects
  • our technologies are deemed to be low risk, and

  • we hold sufficient scientific evidence to support the medical claims we make for SmartSound

Beyond meeting the regulatory requirements of our instructions for use, statements of intended purpose, contraindications and so on, we do not give or imply medical or psychological advice or diagnosis of any kind.

As we are therapeutic sound specialists - not medical doctors - all such enquiries should be directed to appropriate medical professionals only. If symptoms persist, talk to your healthcare professional.


The Intended Purpose (and Uses) of SmartSound

As indicated on the ARTG, variations of our SmartSound™ audio protocols and their constituent technologies may be used to assist in the management of a range of conditions.

Our audio protocols may provide targeted forms of neuroacoustic assistance for certain conditions as well as  broad-spectrum applications and benefits for general wellbeing, resilience and daily performance.

In the case of our first product release - Sleep Solutions - we hold adequate scientific evidence to state that our Sleep Solutions App may assist with:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Insomnia and sleep quality 
  • Mild pain
  • Headaches
  • PMS 
  • Heart rate variability (HRV)
  • Emotional regulation

The Science


What's in SmartSound? 

SmartSound™ is a proprietary 'hybrid' audio technology with over 14 years of R&D.

It has evolved along multi-disciplinary lines, a synthesis informed by neuroacoustics, psychoacoustics, the arts, disciplines including auditory cognitive neuroscience, and hospital-based EEG validation.

SmartSound™ is much easier to experience than explain - which is why we recommend trying our free 'Mini-D-Stress' session. SmartSound™ incorporates a range of evidence-based audio technologies and other elements, including those below.


The Science


You and Your Brainwaves - The Basics

As a therapeutic tool, one of the functions of SmartSound™ is to help modulate brainwave patterns in order to assist with deep relaxation, stress/anxiety reduction, sleep and so on.

The study of brainwaves and related phenomena remains very much a work in progress for neuroscientists.

However, we've summarised some basic principles below, in part to help explain how SmartSound™ technologies may offer various forms of assistance.  


What are brainwaves?

Brainwaves are basically your neurons communicating. They occur throughout the brain as rhythmic waves of synchronised electrical activity. Different brainwaves (and combinations thereof) correlate to particular physiological processes and states of consciousness, from deep dreamless sleep to heightened focus and awareness.


The Science


Brainwave Frequencies & Effects 

SmartSound™ protocols contain various forms of auditory stimulation including brainwave synchronization techniques. Below are some general findings from clinical trials concerning brainwave frequency stimulation and its applications.

Although exact frequency thresholds are still debated by researchers, those below are generally representative to within a few Hertz. (For simplicity we have excluded lambda, mu and epsilon frequencies).


The Science


Beyond Belief

(Do I need to 'believe' to make it work?)

SmartSoundTM sessions are not ‘new age’, religious or spiritual – they are based on applied neuroscience and evidence-based neuro-acoustic technologies and principles, not pseudoscience or hype.

And, because they engage naturally occurring processes such as the 'relaxation response' automatically - without the need of additional techniques, they tend to work effectively for all, regardless of their beliefs, training and so on. 

So while it's perfectly fine to experiment or supplement them with your favourite meditation, breathing or other techniques if you wish, they will produce results regardless.

In this sense SmartSoundTM is literally 'beyond belief'.

You are welcome to try our free Mini-D-Stress session to experience SmartSoundTM for yourself.

(Coming soon as a mobile App).
