Alongside the launch of the updated Muse S headband, Interaxon is launching an intelligent new kind of EEG-powered sleep experience that is designed to help put you to sleep and guide you back to sleep if you’ve woken during the night.

Interaxon has been excited to offer this never-before-seen sleep intervention after building on their successful release of sleep content & EEG sleep tracking insights to support healthy sleep habits. A recent 2021 study led by Western University, Cambridge Brain Science, Hatch, and Interaxon that used Muse S EEG-sleep support technology showed a 20% improvement in the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, relative to controls wanting to improve their sleep.

“For many of us, increasingly busy days translate into busy minds at night and restless sleep. While sleep tracking can be helpful to gain insights on trends and changes in your sleep quality, tracking your sleep doesn’t provide immediate relief when you need it most,” said Walter Greenleaf, Chief Science Officer at Interaxon (Muse®). “According to the CDC, more than a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis with less than seven hours per day.1 This innovative new solution can help users get the rest they need to improve their overall wellness with a non-pharmaceutical sleep aid.”

Digital Sleeping Pills (DSPs)

Muse Digital Sleeping Pills or DSPs are designed to help you through the wind-down process by responding to your brain’s rhythms and helping you disengage from your busy mind. Muse S detects the natural changes in your brain activity as you fall asleep and uses those changes to gently fade out your audio to cue your brain that it’s time for sleep. If you wake in the night, Muse S uses the same Smart-Fade technology to automatically fade in the DSP content to guide you back to sleep again.

Sleep content preferences can vary widely from person to person. Some people are looking for a more engaging story to keep their mind from getting stuck in ruminating thoughts, while others may find a story too exciting to fall asleep to and prefer a softer, guided meditation or ambient soundscape. Depending on what type of content helps you fall asleep best, you can select a variety of different DSP’s to help you on your journey including all-new:

  • Original, Classic, and Adventure Sleep Stories that have a voice narration of some of your favorite childhood stories & a variety of new original stories
  • Ambient Sleep Soundscapes that offer soothing ambient music and harmonized sounds without a voice narrative
  • Biofeedback Sleep Soundscapes that offer nature sounds and music that respond to biofeedback without a voice narrative
  • Guided Sleep Meditations that have a meditation teacher guide you through a relaxing sleep meditation

In addition to the advanced EEG technology that Muse® is known for, the all-new second-generation Muse® S has improved signal quality for increased accuracy and enhanced battery performance with up to 50% reduction in charging time. Additionally, improved fit for a wider range of head sizes has been achieved with the same comfortable, adjustable, and washable fabric band.

Muse® S (Gen 2) is now available for $399.99 USD at www.choosemuse.com and will be available on Amazon North America starting in 2022. Both first and second-generation Muse® S headbands will have access to the new Digital Sleep Pill (DSP) features free of charge with Gen 1 users gaining access in December of 2021.
