Twin Cities HealthIT startup raising a million for mobile music therapy

ActivationLifeTwin Cities HealthIT startup Activation Life is fundraising a million dollar equity round according to a recent disclosure filed with the SEC.

The company is pursuing a “Digital Mobile Music System with Studio-Grade Resonate Frequency head phones,” to administer patients with tones that enter through the ears and vibrate throughout the body’s skeletal and vestibular system.  According the website, this involves both iOS and Android mobile applications.

“Sonic Therapy is the scientifically developed practice of using very specific musical frequencies and their inherent vibrations as a powerful and natural way to activate specific areas of the brain. These frequencies when applied through vibration techniques advance the firing of specific neurons from the brain throughout the body. This creates stimulation of descending motor pathways resulting in increased coordination, decrease sway, better muscle stability, control and strength.”

Based on their Twitter feed, the technology has been used by members of the Minnesota Twins and the head US Olympic training coach. Activation Life unsuccessfully attempted a $50k crowdfunding campaign last year, yet something must be happening here given the launch of a large new funding round with $40k committed.
