The SynPhNe Story: Using the ability of the ever-changing brain to address stress and chronic conditions

Are you one of those who have recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure, find  less and less time to relax and spend time with family, suffer from travel fatigue, are under pressure to earn more and perform better and hence losing out on sleep?

The old science considered the brain to be hard-wired in adults while the evidence from recent science demonstrates that the brain is forever plastic, changing itself constantly and thereby, changing us. A good example is a musician who plays new musical scores every other day with speed, accuracy and soul. So the obvious question is can we use this ability of the brain to change itself to help us lead more healthy and productive lives? If so, can we use wearable technology to make this brain re-wiring so simple that we can manage our health- whether healthy, sick, or disabled- wherever we go?

Hospitals are primarily designed for treating acutely sick patients that require urgent or emergency treatment. But today’s healthcare systems are facing growing cost and manpower pressures from an ageing population and a shift in the disease burden from infectious to chronic non-communicable diseases and disorders, causing more people to be unwell and sick more often and for longer periods of time. Thanks to the rise in numbers of such non-acute patients – who typically require more resource-intensive care – hospitals are often left struggling to cope.

The challenge of reorganising services for such patients (including those with minor or major conditions and disability) means too many are not getting proper care. In response, many healthcare systems are seeking new delivery models that can give individual patients and communities greater oversight and control over their own health while reducing avoidable costs and improving outcomes.

One result of this is the wearable devices industry which has brought healthcare to the doorstep of consumer electronics. However, in spite of large amounts of data being generated, there is no evidence of people’s health actually improving. Remote monitoring does not seem to be fulfilling its previous promise of large scale health and well-being. The expectation that merely seeing data and trends will result in behaviour change has not been met and scientific evidence in this regard is still sketchy in spite of the tremendous amounts of data generated and millions using these devices. What is missing is a viable and powerful methodology which re-wires the brain and hence, changes unconscious habits.

Welcome to SynPhNe (pronounced like “symphony”), the world’s first system that helps train brain and muscle as ONE system. Initially developed in Singapore to help stroke patients recover functional use of their hands and reduce chronic pain and muscle tightness, it is now finding application in the preventive space, namely, addressing conditions such as elevated blood pressure and chronic stress. These conditions are all scientifically proven to increase risk of stroke which is the second largest killer in Singapore and is now the largest cause of permanent disability worldwide, sparing no age group or gender.

SynPhNe uses a unique protocol called Dynamic Relaxation, which is a set of movement principles that uses relaxation and “doing less” to bring about better productivity and health. Contrary to popular perception, “doing less” is not really easy, but then it is not so difficult either. Dynamic Relaxation draws out an individualized brain re-wiring roadmap for a person which impacts both health and performance positively. After a few weeks of this training, one learns to take on greater challenges but with progressively decreasing stress and stress related symptoms. In combination with the SynPhNe wearable brain-muscle wireless device, it takes your mastery over health and performance to a whole new level, hand holding you in making adjustments to your body and brain which may look insignificant at first but demonstrates its power very soon.

The inventor and founder of SynPhNe Pte Ltd., Dr. Subhasis Banerji, PhD., says, “People of my generation were told, when we were young, that we must take charge of our health. However, this has been lost in the mad rush of modern, urban lifestyles which demand ever increasing levels of performance with no time to rest. Just as mobile technology has given us the ability to communicate with the outside world, SynPhNe is the first technology which gives you the power to communicate internally with yourself, right from day one! And through this communication, to change the way your brain is wired to accelerate better health and well-being.”

Co-founder Dr. John Heng from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, believes that the SynPhNe technology and approach will reduce costs, time and effort for individuals and families while relieving the national healthcare system of massive cost and resource burdens. In 2016, SynPhNe launched its series of “SynPhNe & Rhythm” workshops, individualized programs and technology enabled offerings in Singapore, India and USA.
