About this app

The Halo Sport app controls the Halo Sport headset, which is a wearable neurostimulator that accelerates improvements in skill, power, and endurance when paired with training. Halo Sport works by stimulating the motor cortex of the brain during training, resulting in stronger, more optimized signaling between the brain and muscles. Every day, thousands of athletes, musicians, gamers, military professionals, and others train with Halo Sport to more rapidly develop muscle memory. Learn more about Halo Sport below or visit haloneuro.com.

WHAT IS NEUROPRIMING

With the Halo Sport app, users can choose from three different Neuropriming sessions: (1) Legs, Core, & Arms, (2) Hand & Fingers - Right Emphasis, and (3) Hand & Fingers - Left Emphasis. According to the selected session, Halo Sport’s foam Primers electrically stimulate specific areas of the motor cortex to induce a temporary state of hyperplasticity. Pairing the resulting hyperplastic brain state with training reps leads to more more precise, coordinated, and explosive movement — whichever is the focus of the user’s training. You can read more about Neuropriming at blog.haloneuro.com/neuroscience.

WHO IS USING HALO SPORT

In professional sports, teams and athletes from the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB and Olympics are all using Halo Sport to improve athleticism. For example, a double-blind, placebo-controlled study with the U.S. Olympic Ski Team found that ski jumpers who trained with Halo Sport increased propulsive force by an additional 13% and jump smoothness by an additional 11% over the control group after ten consecutive training days. You can see more examples of athletes and musicians training with Halo Sport at youtube.com/c/HaloNeuroscience.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND HALO SPORT

The underlying science behind Halo Sport is called transcranial direct current stimulation (“tDCS”). tDCS is backed by more than a decade of neuroscience research—3,000 peer-reviewed articles covering over 105,000 sessions speak to the technology’s safety and efficacy. In addition, Halo Neuroscience’s team of doctors, scientists, and engineers built Halo Sport according to medical-grade specifications, and successfully tested the device on more than 1,400 volunteers. Read more about the science of tDCS at haloneuro.com/science.

HOW TO USE HALO SPORT

For best results, use Halo Sport during a 20-minute warm-up prior to focused, movement-based training. Simply saturate the Primers with water, put on Halo Sport like any other pair of headphones, and use the Halo Sport app to initiate a 20-minute Neuropriming session. After the 20-minute session ends, take off the headset (or leave it on to listen to music) and continue training. Your brain remains in a hyperplastic state for 60 minutes—use this time to perform high-quality, high-intensity reps.

Great when it works I previously had this as 5/5. Doing workouts I'd previously done, I seem to sweat a lot more and feel like I'm activating more muscle groups than normal. However, I can't get thing to go through an entire session without pausing; I've tried everything outside of shaving my head (don't have long hair). I even bought a new priming band. Very frustrating product because it's great if it ever works, but it will pause and resume off and on constantly without adjusting.

The only real problem is connection, but I just get the primers soaking wet. Sure having water drip down your scalp all over the place is kind of annoying, but working out isn't ever pretty and this tool is invented to hack human nature not be comfortable. I would say the most useful aspect is learning something completely new to me. I bought bell clubs at the same time and progressed quickly. Before yoga improved balance and coordination. KB movements improved rapidly. I have a BS & CSCS!

$399 paper weight. Won't connect to the app even though it will connect to my phone. When will this be resolved? It keeps disconnecting and won't stay connected. I've tried contacting customer support, but the page doesn't exist. This is disappointing as my old tablet can connect, but my phone can't even though it's running an operating system that is compatible according to the support page. Please fix this.
