Everything You Need to Know About Our Biggest Update Ever

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.

(Updated July 2023) Our mission at Healium is to allow you to see your feelings to discover the healing powers inside yourself.  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 set session reminders. You asked for more content and easier to understand interfaces and feedback. 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!

 

Track your sessions with your personalized data dashboard

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 as well as session duration so you can see your changes over time. 

 

 

 

After each session, you’ll see your scores displayed and also stored in your user dashboard.

 

Data ethics and privacy are something we strongly value. So much so, we spent more than a year researching with experts how we can safely allow you to track your brain patterns and heart rate over time. We don’t sell your data. We don’t have algorithms that are meant to feed an addiction. You’ll find our terms, conditions, and privacy policy here.

 

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. Each user will have their own unique score. If you’re using an EEG wearable for feedback, it’s based on your brain patterns associated with the stress response. If you’re using an Apple watch for heart rate, it’s based on your beats per minute. 

 

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. 

 

 

Use the Breath Pacer to Improve Your Mind-Body Connection

 Inside the goggles, the Breath Pacer will automatically launch when you start a new experience. Connect your breath with the particles. 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 as well as access other video settings.

 

6 Times the Content

Healium’s mobile app now includes six times the content for you to do neurofeedback or biofeedback at home. No VR goggles? No problem. Healium for mobile is a portable, digital chill pill with 40 different nature-based escapes that have the option to be powered by a fitness tracker or EEG headband. 

Where to get it:  For iOS, download our app here or search Healium in the App Store. For Android, download our app here or search Healium in the Google Play Store. 

 

Healium VR and Mobile: For $29.99 a month, you get 35+ VR experiences to choose from in the library with new content added every 60 days.  Use our patented technology to self-manage your stress, reinvent your recoveries, track your sessions via our data dashboard, and become more self-aware that your thoughts have power. 

 

Where to get it: For Pico XR goggles (G24k, G3 and Neo 3) , search Healium in the Pico store. It’s a free download. Go to the Healium website to checkout to get a pro account which gives you the app’s login credentials to unlock all of our content.

 

For  Meta Quest 2 (Oculus), download our app by searching HEALIUM in the Meta app stores. It’s a free download to start. Upgrade within the app for access to pro features like connecting an EEG headband by checking out on our website.

 

 

New look: Healium Aura

In addition to new features, Healium is now more beautiful to experience. If you’re using a wearable for feedback, you’ll notice in the VR app a healing aura surrounds you. The aura glows yellow if your feelings of calm are worse than your baseline.  If your feelings of calm are better than your baseline, then your aura will glow green. Kind of like a traffic light where you’re using your body’s energy to get to a green light. 

In addition, you now have the ability to set session reminders on your mobile device that will add the date you select to your calendar. Mindfulness and mental wellness is a habit. Do a daily session and get a Healium “spark” for the day. 

 

 

Reset Your Baseline

Inside the new Healium app, it’s now easier to reset your baseline with the click of a button at the bottom of the main menu. Everyone’s brain patterns are different so be sure to reset your baseline every time you re-enter the app. 

 

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 information. 

 

Have a feature you’d like to add?
