The PlatoWork headset stimulates your brain to either Focus on a task at hand or Create new ideas so that you can work your best when you need to.
Do you know the feeling of being stuck with a task, because your mind just isn’t where it needs to be? PlatoWork can change that.
By using the safe and scientifically proven tDCS-technology, PlatoWork activates specific areas of the brain, helping you to deliver the results you need.
Procrastination is one of the most expensive invisible costs in business today. Recent studies show that procrastination on average costs American employers $10,396 per year – per employee. With PlatoWork we want to make work more efficient by helping our users to enter their desired state of mind faster. The PlatoWork headset currently offers two different modes for problem solving;
Focus on at task at hand and Create new ideas
How does it work?
The neurostimulation available through PlatoWork is based on tDCS technology; a well-known method for influencing natural brain activity. The technology has been used successfully for many years, mainly within the medical field and in areas such as pilot- and sniper training. With PlatoWork the technology is deployed to help knowledge workers and creative professionals achieve better results.
Who we are
Our team is a mix of dedicated experts primarily within the fields of neurobiology and design engineering. Together we have crafted the PlatoWork headset, bringing together the best of neurostimulation technology and user-centered design. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark we rest on the Scandinavian tradition for strong design and high quality products.
I Use PlatoWork 2-3 times a week. I use “Focus 1 mode” to get more absorbed in tasks, especially writing. I find the mode makes it easier to block out all the distractions of the 21st century - like notifications and open browser tabs. I’ll use the “Create 1” mode to rapidly output ideas of any kind, the trick - for me - is to make sense of the brainstorm when it’s over.”
I have always been fascinated by the science behind brain optimisation. My curios mind has had to brace itself and wait until the right technology became accessible to the public and here we are! With PlatoWork I have access to a brain massage when needed. Most importantly it helps me to counteract some symptoms of stress, which can hinder both concentration and block my creative flow.
If coffee is a ritual for alertness, I could imagine devices like PlatoWork becoming a ritual for creative pursuit or analytical focus.
