    At CES 2017, Leti to Unveil First Wearable Device for Consumers to Measure Relaxation via Alpha Waves

    RELAX Headgear Provides New Dimension to Wellness Management

    In Every Area of Life, From Working to Studying to Exercising or Just Sitting

    GRENOBLE, France – Dec. 12, 2016 – Leti, an institute of CEA Tech, will demonstrate at CES 2017 a wearable device that takes the measurement of brain activity – alpha waves – out of the clinic and puts it into the hands of consumers.

    Using electroencephalography (EEG) to record the brain’s alpha-wave activity, the lightweight headgear called RELAX measures the level of alert relaxation with an embedded electrode system that does not require the sensors to be attached to the scalp.

    Designed to allow users to maximize relaxation, the RELAX headgear provides a new dimension to wellness management in every area of life, from working to studying to exercising or simply sitting and reading or listening to music.

    Medically certification-ready, user-friendly, affordable and non-invasive, it lets users monitor their own level of attention and enhance mindfulness. The RELAX app, which is connected to the head device, provides live tracking of alpha-wave activity.

    “Leti’s manufacturing partners will develop our brain-computer and mental focus technologies into full hardware-software concepts,” said Coralie Gallis, a Leti business development manager. “They will be able to develop a wide range of wellness devices and wearable sports- and fitness-related devices, such as wristbands and chest straps.”

    Future uses for RELAX include:

    • Brain fitness (neuro-feedback): this powerful stress-management and sleep-enhancement technique improves a person’s quality of life.
    • Brain-computer interface: object command and control through thought is possible by reading brain signals when thinking specifically. Applications may include virtual reality, video games and remote assistance of disabled persons for controlling home-automation functions.
    • Mental-focus monitoring: tracking concentration and level of attention in high-stakes occupational situations can save lives and prevent environmental disasters. Air- and road-traffic control, and highly efficient digital-learning tools are among the multiple applications of this technology.

    Leti’s team will demonstrate its breakthrough technologies at CES Unveiled on Jan 35-8:30 pm, Mandalay Bay, South Pacific Ballroom, Las Vegas, Nev. Demos will then be available at Booth 50648-50650, in Eureka Park, during the entire CES show.

    Leti is a member of the French Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes regional delegation at CES 2017. Visit
