ENCYCLOPDIA OF USES

BLAST AWAY

FEAR OF THE DARK

THE STRESS RESPONSE

Being afraid of the dark can be a natural part of child development as they learn to distinguish between what is real and imaginary. Because of this, bedtime can activate their fight-or-flight or stress response despite there being no real threat or danger. This can lead to bedtime avoidance, trouble falling asleep, staying asleep and staying in bed throughout the night. Use BLAST® to curb the fear of the dark so your little one can rest easy.


HOW BLAST HELPS

TouchPoint Solution’s wearable devices are embedded with patented BLAST® (bi-lateral alternating stimulation tactile) technology. BLAST® is scientifically proven to alter the body’s “fight or flight” response caused by stress. The wearables emit alternating vibrations thatdisengage your standard stress response (sympathetic nervous system), and shift you into the calm, logical side of your brain (parasympathetic nervous system). 

THE LONGTERM BENEFITS

When using BLAST®  consistently with fear of the dark, overtime they may not need them as the dark may feel less stressful because of BLAST® . One of the ways BLAST® works is by creating new neural pathways that help modify the memories that trigger our stress response. With continued use of BLAST® , these new neural pathways can build overtime, progressively reducing the release of stress related hormones related to fear. 

SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY BOARD

BLAST® sleep study

A Scientific Advisory Board study found that when BLAST® is used before going to bed, they both helped the subject fall asleep within 15 minutes and wake up 80% less in the middle of the night.


BLAST® helps your body manage the stress, one of the main reasons for sleep disruption, helping your body to relax for more restful sleep.
