Vibro Tactile Stimulation

In the late 1800’s a French scientist identified vibrations now revisited to mediate the debilitating effects of Parkinson’s disease.

In the 60’s the Beach Boy’s sang of Good Vibrations and the audience caught the vibe and reveled in the feeling. This iconoclastic music composition may one day be the key to re-mediating the debilitating effects of Alzheimer’s .

During the 80’s and to present Olav Skille, a Swedish scientist, and recent HiFi Wellness collaborator has clinically identified specific vibratory frequencies to relieve pain, stress and muscle tension, improve circulation, and a number of other human maladies. This work continues today with the use of his and other .clinically proven vibrational frequencies Further, studies show that music presented in vibratory format can inherently contain identified healing frequencies and also provide entertaining, physiological and psychological benefits as identified by studies at Life Vessel utilizing their $100K sound enclosure.

Current applications of safe, non-invasive, high fidelity, (VSS Vibro Sensory Stimulation) demonstrate levels of effectiveness that are superior to TENS (Transcuetaneous Electro Neural Stimulation) and EMS (Electro Muscle stimulation)i technologies.

Further studies may show that VSS is as effective as HFS in alleviating symptoms of Parkinson’s.

Hifi Wellness Llc. manufactures high fidelity vibrational devices to provide clinically identified high fidelity vibration in traditional and medical furniture. The “heart” of this design, integrates high fidelity, broadband, vibrational transducers utilized in diverse applications from military simulation, attractions at Disney and Universal Studios to high end home theaters and in a slightly different rendition, underwater speakers utilized by the Olympic Synchronized Swim Team.

The use of these powerful transducers creates the required amplitude, frequency response and fidelity to provide an exhilarating and healing physical sensation that can be characterized for any identified healing frequency and musical counterpart.

The current platform, the VSST (Vibro Sensory Stimulation Table) is a Blue Tooth wireless connected, portable, professional massage table with integrated broadband high fidelity vibration transducers, Tri-Path, audiophile quality, multi-channel amplifier . This “plug and play” device is capable of producing all know clinically proven vibrational frequencies and music either separately or synergistically to provide an unmatched “high energy” experience. This is due to the fact that virtually all other technologies utilize modified speakers or “toy” quality vibrators to produce the vibrational effect.

Thank you for your time in reading this and please let me know how I may be of further service.

Multifaceted Tactile Sound

Originally conceived in the late “70’s” as a way to prevent hearing loss without losing the feel, high fidelity tactile sound has been used by the military for recreating the vibrational signature for air craft and ground vehicle virtual training in million dollar F-18A, Apache helicopter and Bradley tank multimedia simulators.  Also used to add multi-sensory integration at Disney and Universal Studios theme parks, ultra high end home theaters and automotive applications. Used for vibration phase cancellation at Boeing aircraft manufacturing facility and in Boeing jetliner museum to recreate actual taxi and flight sensations in a grounded aircraft.

Currently being used as a tool to work with behavior modification programs at public schools.  Tennessee School for the Blind has been using a tactile sound floor for over 15 years as a tool for behavior modification and communication.  The Olympic Synchronized Swim Team and Cirque de Soleil uses yet another derivation of this design to provide under water sound to its under water ballerina’s and to provide a music massage in hot tubs.

I have personally witnessed a woman delivered from the grasp of Alzheimer’s just by listening to old music in one of my high fidelity tactile sound chairs.

Many studies have been done on the healing and restorative aspects of VAT (Vibro Acoustic Therapy). I have listed a number of these studies on this site under Clinical Trials and have recently begun collaboration with Swedish scientist Olav Skille, a pioneer in the science of Vibro Acoustic Therapy.  A number of these studies are peer reviewed and found on the  website.

All this from a concept meant to prevent hearing loss, entertain, simulate reality and stimulate the senses.

As I hone my social media skills to see what is the best way to get the word out I will keep this blog updated to reflect those discoveries.

Here’s to a new journey,
