We stimulated our nerves with Modius, a weight-loss headbandA headband that stimulates the vestibular nerve: Modius promises weight loss over time. We tried it briefly at CES 2018.
[MUSIC] I'm currently stimulating my vestibular nerve. I'm here at CES and I'm wearing Modius. This is a band that's meant to help with weight loss. What it is, it's something I wear on my head, and I've got two electrodes It's attached to me, that are stimulating my vestibular nerve. What these are supposed to do is stimulate the hypothalamus, which affect homeostasis. According to Modeus, what that's going to do is reduce your appetite. Increase your metabolism and eventually change your body fat set point. I just know that right now I'm feeling a prickling, a very mild kind of weird prickling, over here by my ears. And it creates a sensation of a slight waviness, like I'm on a cruise ship. Now I could just use this I guess while watching a TV show You're meant to use this and sit down 30 minutes or so take it in and keep using it regularly. You'd have to apply a little bit of gel and wipe your ears because it's like attaching electrodes to your head. And seeing that it is filled with health checks and health promises Modus is offering a different proposition than many of the other Ones we've seen. [MUSIC]
