Perfect Life Institute
completed two studies using the DAVID systems to treat ADD/ADHD
(Attention-deficit disorder / Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder)
. His first
study involved 30 primary school children from two schools (which was
published in the J ournal
of Neurotherapy) and his second study
in cluded 204
children from seven schools, which he completed while he was the D irector
of Neurotechnology at A
Chance to Grow, a special-needs charter school in Minneapolis.
Both studies showed
that ADD behaviours were reduced significantly and reading improved with
AVE . Michael used the DAVID's unique patented field stimulation ability to
generate a different frequency in each hemisphere of the brain. With this
technique and a Symptom Survey checklist developed by Michael, he was able
to create DAVID sessions that could stimulate or calm the left, right or
both hemispheres depending on the symptoms checked off by the child's
Michael has refined and
developed these sessions based
on the checklist to
produce benefits in specific areas. Now, all of this expertise has been put
into the DAVID ALERT.
- Tru-Vu Omniscreen TM
Eyesets - Our unique Tru-Vu OmniscreenTM
Eyesets were carefully designed to provide you with the most effective and
safe light and sound experience. The Tru-Vu OmniscreenTM
Eyesets for the ALERT use eight blue-tinted white LEDs mounted over a silver
reflector behind a translucent screen. This disperses the light evenly.
Our new Tru-Vu OmniscreenTM
Eyesets are specially designed to allow for the left and right visual
fields of each eye to be individually stimulated rather than the entire
eye. With the Tru-Vu OmniscreenTM
Eyesets, the lights flash into the left visual fields of both eyes, then
alternately flashes into the right visual fields of both eyes. This
approach allows the ability to stimulate either visual cortex with a
frequency different from the other visual cortex. For example, a person
who functions strongly from the left brain could have 8 Hz stimulated into
the right visual field (and therefore the left brain) to slow down left
brain function and have 18 Hz stimulated into the left visual field to
increase right brain function.
- Isochronic Pulsed Tones, Binaural
Beats and Chime - The tones of the DAVID ALERTTM
are evenly spaced, are of equal pitch and are turned on and
off at a specified rate. This is important to enhance the effectiveness of
- The gradual lowering of the lights and tones at the end of the session
prevents a startle response (also known as somnatic shock). Soft-OffTM
ensures that relaxation and other benefits carry over even after a session
- Battery Power Indicator - At a
quick glance you can tell if your battery has enough power to run your
session. New eyeset technology allows for much longer life for your
Intensity and Volume Buttons - The intensity and volume buttons
are raised so that you can make the necessary adjustments easily and
quickly, even with your eyes closed. Adjust the intensity of the
Eyesets with the easy-to-find INT button.

The heart speeds up with every breath in and
slows down with every breath out. This swing in heart rate is HRV. A typical
heart beat swing is in the order of about 15 beats per minute (bpm). When
people get stressed, the heart typically clamps to sometimes as low as five
bpm HRV at times intermixed with sharp spikes in heart rate. This is all
abnormal activity and is rough on the heart.
The HRV technique used clinically is based on
a 10 second breathing cycle (six breaths/minute, by inhaling slowly for five
seconds and exhaling slowly for five seconds in an easy, relaxed breath).
When using HRV paced breathing, listen to the heartbeat generated by the
DAVID ALERTTM through
the headphones. Inhale for two heartbeats and exhale for two heartbeats (not
your own heartbeats!). Most sessions begin at seven breathing cycles/minute
(28 heartbeats/min) and slow to six breaths /minute (24 heartbeats/min).
This allows the user to breathe a little faster at the onset of a session
until he/she has had time to relax.
