What it is and how it works
How does Modius SLIM work?
Modius SLIM uses vestibular stimulation to safely and non-invasively send a signal to the hypothalamus in the brain. Vestibular stimulation has been scientifically proven to influence the areas of the hypothalamus associated with appetite, satiety and the overall desire for food.

Can I use Modius for more than 1 hour per day?
Due to regulatory reasons, there is a restriction within the Modius headset which means it is limited to one hour of use per day. In reality, this is per 16-hour time period to allow flexibility in your day.
Can you walk about, drive, cycle, etc while using Modius?
No, as it activates the vestibular nerve which is responsible for balance, we recommend you enjoy your Modius session whilst sitting down.
Can a Modius SLIM headset be used by more than one person each day?
At the present time, there is a limitation that Modius headsets can only be used for a maximum of one hour each day due to regulatory restrictions. In reality, the headset allows for one 60 minute session per 16 hours to allow for flexibility in your daily schedule. Should you wish to share the headset with a second person, you could split the 60 minutes between you or else each person use the headset on alternate days.

No, the FDA and MHRA consider Modius SLIM to be a general wellness device which has been deemed suitable for sale as a consumer headset. This means you can buy a headset without the need for a prescription. We recommend that you consult with your doctor or health care professional if you are concerned or have any particular medical conditions before using the device.
