The Vagus Nerve is the longest of the 12 cranial nerves in the body. It is the key part of your parasympathetic nervous system, otherwise known as the “rest-and-digest” system. It affects your breathing, digestive function and heart rate, all of which can have a huge impact on your mental health.
The amofit S device uses AMO Lab’s proprietary neuromodulation technology cVES (cervicothoracic vagus electromagnetic stimulation) to deliver mild electromagnetic signals to stimulate the vagus nerve in a non-contact, non-invasive way through the skin, without the need for implants or surgery. This provides many benefits over traditional vagus nerve stimulation therapies, such as reduced side effects, long-lasting therapeutic effects, reduced cost and superior safety, without the need for medication.
Vagus Nerve stimulation has been shown through numerous research papers and clinical trials to improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus, and also enhance and strengthen overall body functions. By restoring balance to the autonomic nervous system, it has the potential to alleviate many conditions caused by autonomic dysfunction, such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue, insomnia, emotional regulation, depression, anxiety, panic attacks and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
Vagus Nerve stimulation has also shown promising results as a treatment for Long COVID.
