Is stress strangling your potential? If we were to be so bold as to predict, we would say it probably is. Why are we so sure? We’ve studied the latest research, and this highlights some alarming statistics about our stress in the UK.
Commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation and undertaken by YouGov, a 2018 study polled 4,169 UK adults and concluded that over the past year, almost three quarters (74%) have at some point felt so stressed that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. These findings have been backed up by other recent research. Stress is increasingly affecting younger age groups too, particularly those between the age of 18-34.
The negative effects of stress on our health are far reaching and well documented, from stomach ulcers to depression with much in between. One such example was demonstrated by the INTERHEART study, which was conducted across 52 countries. It found that prolonged stress increased the chances of having heart attack by as much as smoking and hypertension. Scary stuff.
If you are fed up with feeling anxious or stressed, you are certainly not alone. But what can you do about it?
With Sensate, the answer is surprisingly simple; spend a little more time in the present, benefit from the ancient art of meditation in as little as 10 minutes, and leave your worries behind. Don't just take our word for it, our independent academic expert Dr David Broome has been through the evidence for you, and he agrees. You can read his Lab report below.
Sensate emits low frequency vibrations. These work through bone conduction to calm you down and put your body into repair mode. Sensate does this by toning the Vagus nerve, one of the most important nerves in the body, responsible for regulating many critical bodily functions including the heart rate, blood pressure, and digestion. This results in an improved ability for your body to regulate itself.
Sensate combats stress. In an 173 subject effectiveness study carried out in 2017 by the New Medicine Group, Sensate improved participant Heart Rate Variability (HRV), a gold standard stress measure, by an average of 86%.
Set up. Sensate is easy to set up, the device links smoothly via Bluetooth to your phone through the accompanying app. (iOS or Android).
Easy of use. The sensate is straightforward to use once you are connected, and the app has several preinstalled music tracks from which you can choose your favourite for during your session. The app asks how you are feeling before you begin and adjusts the intensity to suit your needs. Then it’s just a case of pressing go and your session starts. There is a timer to indicate how long the session will last.
App. The app is well presented, looking slick and modern. Navigating through the app is very simple; there is only one pathway to follow before you begin a session.
Build quality. It feels well built overall we haven’t identified any issues with this.
I’m not a regular meditator but the general experience is very good...it allows you to quickly and effectively zone out, and just focus on the present moment. It’s a powerful and addictive experience which I repeated many times.
Steve Harper, Well Professor Technology Guru
Meditation can change you; your cells, your brain, your mood and even your life expectancy. In fact, there are so many benefits that the question should be:
Why are you not meditating?
The answer is we think it is difficult. That it takes many years to master and it is only for those who go on retreats and live in monasteries.
It is not as hard as you think, and many more people are now learning the many benefits of meditation. But... there is no doubt that with Sensate, meditation has just become much much easier.
Sensate inventor, Stefan Chmelik, is a Harley Street healthcare expert and life-long meditator. Stefan has chanelled his 30 years of experience into creating a unique device, that enables anyone to easily relax or meditate within just 10 minutes of use.

...with the scientific prowess of the literature examining the benefits of vagus nerve stimulation and meditation, combined with the experience of personal use and a good dose of common sense, Sensate will have a positive impact on users."
Dr David Broom, Faculty of Health and Wellbeing, Sheffield Hallam University.
Sensate is a perfect example of the new breed of health and wellbeing technology now available. It offers something unique, the established benefits of meditation, made effortlessly accessible.
In fact, we have researched and tested many stress management devices over the years and the vast majority can identify the presence of stress, but then merely prompt you to take action. Whilst this can work in the short term, it is reliant on you to continue to respond to these prompts. And research shows that you don’t. Set your potential free and live a happier and more productive life with Sensate.
The Lab is the heartbeat of Well Professor, where we do all the hard work so you don't have to. Sign up to the LAB and be sure you always stay one step ahead.
