The Science


SmartSound™ is a Medical Device

NeuroSonica SmartSound™ is a multi-functional new 'brain audio' genre delivered in mobile app format.  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. Contraindications and age limits apply.

Our ARTG listing means that:

  •  we are offering a regulated therapeutic audio technology with a variety of evidence-based benefits
  • our technologies have been categorised as low risk for use as instructed, and

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

While they may offer various forms of neuro-acoustic assistance, our products are not intended as a replacement for medical or psychological treatment.

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 diagnosis or advice of any kind.

As we are therapeutic sound specialists - not medical doctors - all such enquiries should be directed to appropriate medical professionals only.


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 including stress, anxiety, insomnia, adult ADHD and depression.

Our audio protocols range from those designed to deliver targeted forms of neuro-acoustic assistance for certain conditions to those with 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 legally make the claims that our Sleep Solutions suite may assist with:

  • stress and anxiety
  • insomnia and sleep quality 
  • mild pain
  • headaches
  • hypertension
  • PMS 
  • Improved heart rate variability (HRV) &
  • emotional regulation

The Science


What's in SmartSound? 

SmartSound™ is a 'hybrid' audio technology resulting from over 12 years of R&D. It has evolved along multi-disciplinary lines, a synthesis informed by the sciences of neuro-acoustics and psycho-acoustics, the arts, disciplines including medical and cognitive ethnomusicology and hospital-based EEG validation.

SmartSound™ is far easier to experience than explain - which is why we recommend trying our free 'Mini-D-Stress' session. Although SmartSound™ contains a number of proprietary techniques and processes, below you'll find a basic introduction to some of the evidence-based audio technologies and other elements incorporated within it.


The Science


You and Your Brainwaves - The Basics

One of the primary functions of SmartSound™ is to assist with brainwave 'management' using evidence-based sound technologies.

While the study of brainwaves and related phenomena remains a work in progress for neuroscientists, from our perspective as therapeutic sound specialists we're including some of the basics below, in part to help explain how influencing brainwave patterns using our technologies may offer various forms of assistance. 

What are brainwaves?

Brainwaves are essentially your neurons communicating. This takes place as rhythmical waves of synchronised electrical activity throughout your brain. They have unique characteristics, including those that correlate to physiological processes and states of consciousness from deep dreamless sleep to heightened states of awareness - and beyond.


The Science


Brainwave Frequencies and Effects 

Below you'll find a simplified exploration of some of the latest findings concerning brainwave frequencies, plus some of their clinical applications to help you better understand how brainwave stimulation may assist with various conditions and issues. 

Although their exact frequency thresholds are still debated amongst researchers, those given below are generally representative to within a few Hertz. 


The Science


Beyond Belief

(Do I need to 'believe' in it 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.
