Could wearing a high-tech headband treat mental illnesses like depression and post-traumatic stress disorder or even cure a migraine? A South Korean startup called Ybrain hopes theirs will do the trick.
The Korea Herald reported the device, called Mindd, sends electric current into the brain’s frontal lobe, which has been implicated in depression, through a pad on the forehead. The newspaper said the weak currents will feel like a tingly sensation to the person wearing the headband.
