Our latest update includes an all-new data dashboard, breath pacer, and more. Find out how our app is changing to better meet your mental health needs.
Our mission at Healium is to allow you to discover the healing powers inside yourself through fast-acting stress relief that allows you to escape your current reality. Today, “healing” virtual worlds with your body’s electricity just got a lot easier! You asked for a dashboard that allowed you to track your brain patterns and heart rate over time. You asked for the ability to hot change live between brain patterns. We listened!
Using your brain patterns and heart rate to control virtual worlds is new. We’re building the future of media interaction together. As you use our technology, we want to know what you do and don’t want to see. This newest update is an innovative combination of your wants and our mission to empower you with mental wellness tools that work. That’s why we’re proud to announce our latest app update and its newest features built for you!
Healium is an evidence-based intervention for mental wellness. We are proud to introduce the addition of a data dashboard that allows you to track your individual sessions and individual brain patterns over time. Each session is tracked in a dashboard that you can access both inside the app, and with a more detailed version on the web. Track your daily, weekly, monthly, and even yearly scores so you can see your changes over time.
After each session, you’ll see your scores displayed and also stored in your data dashboard.
While seeing your own brain patterns and heart rate is powerful, there are limits to Healium’s technology. Healium is a self-awareness tool and not intended to treat or diagnose any medical condition. It’s not a replacement for psychotropic medication or professional counseling which is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
The Healium score is for educational purposes and is indicative of stress resilience so the higher the score the better. The score is a metric for comparison against your baseline (the white line). Each user will have their own unique score. If you’re using an EEG headband, it’s based on your brain patterns associated with the stress response.
In addition, you’ll be able to track your brain patterns…your alpha, beta, gamma, etc…over time, much like your own personal feeling mirror.
The Breath Pacer will automatically launch when you start a new experience. Connect your breath with the circle. As it expands, breathe in and as it contracts, let it all out.
The Pacer will stay within your gaze, so even as you turn your head to see more of the experience you’ll still see the visual prompt to breathe in and out.
If you find this distracting, it’s easy to turn off this new feature. After an experience has started, press the Back Button (Pico) or the B Button (Quest) to open the settings. Here you can toggle it off, change the dimmer color, and more.
Just like you pay for a gym membership to keep your body physically fit, we offer a subscription plan to improve your mental fitness. The brain is a muscle and change takes time. Now, you can select the plan that’s right for your goals.
For AR only, without a wearable device, our app is free. Enjoy a variety of experiences and magic portals to take with you on-the-go.
Where to get it: For Pico Goblin, search Healium in the Pico store. It’s a free download. Upgrade within the app for access to pro features.
For Oculus Quest and Oculus Quest 2, download our app via SideQuest using these instructions. It’s a free download. Upgrade within the app for access to pro features.
In addition to new features, Healium is now more beautiful to experience. You’ll notice in the VR app there are larger thumbnails in the main screen. You still have the ability to toggle on and off many of the guided voiceovers. You’ll also be able to select whether you want calm or upbeat music. Additionally, you have the option to select how the controller is displayed in the Healium app. Choose from a magic wand, a flower, a tree branch, or the standard controller.
The controller can be used as a visual aid in some experiences, depending on personal preference. For example, in the Mandalynth experience, use your selected controller to trace the Mandalynth and watch your focus react in near real-time.
Inside the new Healium app, it will now be easier to adjust difficulty settings on the fly without having to exit the experience. Much like learning to ride a bicycle, you can start on easy mode with training wheels, then shift gears to medium as you start to feel more comfortable controlling the virtual world with your brain patterns.
We also have an exciting new feature to share with you at a later date. Sign up for our newsletter to get the exclusive insider inf…
