Sana is a Colorado-based company with a focus on researching and designing medical devices for deep restorative states of relaxation to alleviate pain and tension.The company was founded by Richard Hanbury, who started developing the technology after being involved in a serious car accident. Hanbury experienced severe pain after the accident and developed the technology in order to alleviate it.
The company's product is a neuromodulation device and consists of a face mask and headphones that the user wears during times of intended relaxation or sleep. The product uses audio and visual stimulation to create a deep state of relaxation during which the body can heal or recover from fatigue. The cycle of the treatment is 16 minutes in duration. It is tailored to the user through a skin-contact heart rate variability (HRV) sensor, which is built into the forehead area of the mask and measures HRV throughout its use. The device responds accordingly with appropriate pulsating lights and visuals. The device is portable and can be connected to a user's phone via the mobile application.
