Somatron Vibroacoustic Music Therapy Products
The Somatron Corporation, founded in 1985 by Byron Eakin, is the leader in the Vibroacoustic Therapy field and the standard for the industry. As the world’s most widely used and recommended music vibration equipment, the patented Somatron products are involved extensively in programs conducted by hospitals, universities, private and government facilities, including U.S. Air Force, the Bethesda Naval Medical Center and the National Institutes of Health.
What is Vibroacoustic Therapy?
Vibroacoustic Therapy occurs when music is converted to tactile sensations which permeate your whole body with stimulating and soothing sound vibrations. This is achieved through the Patented Somatron Second Diaphragm which is responsible for the sensory vibrations. These differ from other vibroacoustic products as they are not simple pulses that repeat at regular intervals. That would be like listening to music with one note and one beat.
How do Somatron products help people with disabilities?
Stimulation is one of the most common and successful treatment approaches for disabilities. Somatrons have been successful in providing both unique stimulation and total relaxation. They contribute to reaching even the most difficult non-verbal patients. Imagine seeing a special person smile for the first time. Positioning can also be difficult, yet it is necessary for comfort and relaxation. Many of our Soma Seating products are design with this specifically in mind, especially the Recliners and the Body Pillow.
What about special needs?
Special needs schools are finding Somatron soft furniture to be an effective calming and relaxing "chill-out" tool. Children suffering tension, anxiety and depression open up more and talk more freely when using Somatron therapy. The Body Pillow is a safe place for them to be. This is particularly true for those suffering Autism. Somatrons provide the necessary stimulation to reduce stereotypical behaviors, aggression and self injury.
Are there other uses for Somatron products?
Somatrons have been shown to improve the quality of life of those suffering age related dementia. Snugums™ have been particularly well received in this field.
The National Institute of Health study found that Somatron sessions reduced pain by over 53%. Prompted by these findings, Somatron developed an extensive Pain Management Program. Studies have shown that Somatron sessions reduce pain by 53%.
Post-Traumatic Stress victims have also been seen to benefit considerably after using Somatron equipment.
