The Sync Project has developed a novel, music-based, non-pharmaceutical approach to treating pain, sleep, stress, and Parkinson’s gait issues.
Recent studies showed Parkinson’s patients improved their gait when listening to a song with the right beat pattern, and post surgery patients used 1/3 the amount of self-administered morphine after listening to an hour of music.
Lifestyle applications include Unwind, an app detects ones heartbeat, and responds with relaxing music (customized by machine learning tools) to aid sleep, and the Sync Music Bot, which uses Spotify to deliver daily music to enhance work, relaxation, and exercise.
With further clinical validation, this non-invasive therapy could replace drugs for better, targeted, personalized interventions.
