Step by step guide to help you get started
What do I do when I receive my headset?
In the Modius box, you will receive a headset, USB charging cable, User Manual, 150 electrode pads and 100 cleansing wipes. You should first attach the charging cable to the headset and plug into a power source so the headset can charge. When charging, you should see a solid amber light which will go out once charging has finished. It will take approx. 3 hours for your headset to charge, depending on the type of charger you are using. A flashing amber light when charging indicates a charging
How do I get set up for my first session?
When your headset has fully charged (and the solid amber light has turned off), you are ready for your first session. Cleansing the area: You will need to use one of the alcohol wipes provided with your headset to cleanse the bony area just behind the ears (the ‘Mastoid bone’), allowing the area to fully dry before trying to attach pads. Attaching the pads: Peel off the clear plastic from one of the pads and carefully (without touching the sticky area of the pad) attach a pad to the bo
What should I expect to feel from my first session?
The Modius headset works by stimulating the vestibular nerve. You’ll probably feel a light tingling/pricking sensation behind the ears where the pads are placed, although this usually gets less noticeable as the body gets used to it. As the vestibular system is responsible for balance in the body, it’s normal to feel a little unsteady when wearing the headset (which is why we recommend only using it whilst seated). You will probably feel a slight rocking or swaying feeling from side to side, w
What should I do to get the most from my Modius SLIM over the coming weeks?
The key to success is consistency and commitment so we recommend that you use your headset for one hour every day for best results, and in conjunction with a healthy and active lifestyle. Use your Modius SLIM headset at a time of the day that fits in with your lifestyle. Some people prefer to use it in the mornings whilst others find it easier to find time for Modius in the evenings. You may wish to try using it at different times of the day to see if you notice any differences in the e
How do you use Modius SLIM?
Modius SLIM is a headset which is intended to be worn for 1 hour per day (ideally a minimum of 5 times per week) when sitting down. (Modius SLEEP is only required to be worn for 30 minutes each day). The headset is operated by the Modius app which you will need to download to your phone or tablet device. When you purchase a headset, you'll also receive alcohol cleansing wipes and electrode pads. Prior to each session, you will need to cleanse the bony area just behind the ear lobes (the Mast
What power level should I use Modius SLIM at?
Modius SLIM has power levels ranging from 1 to 10. When starting to use your Modius, it's important not to have the power level set too high a level initially. Even if you can't feel the sensation much, your body will still need time to get used to the vestibular stimulation provided by the headset. Everyone will have a different sensitivity to the stimulation but we would recommend starting at no higher than level 3 for approximately the first five sessions and only increase very gradu

How can I change the units of measurement in the Modius app?
In the Modius SLIM app, you can log your weight in either kilograms (kg) or pounds (lbs), and your height in either centimetres (cm) or feet and inches (ft & in). If you wish to change the unit of measurement, you can easily do so by going to the 'Account' tab and then into 'My Details' (Android), or 'Profile' (IOS). Go down to 'Height Units' or 'Weight Units' to select your preference, then hit 'Save' to store these settings.
How long do I need to charge my Modius?
We advise plugging your Modius into a power supply and leaving it to charge until the solid amber light goes out. A standard charge will take approximately 2-3 hours depending on the power source. Check your Modius app to get an indication of how much charge your headset has. A battery symbol will be visible when the headset is connected to the app. If you have a flashing amber light when trying to charge your headset, this indicates it is not charging properly.
