Why Flow works
Flow and the brain
Flow and the brain
The Flow treatment consists of 30 minute stimulation sessions. You will stimulate 5 times per week for the first 3 weeks and then 1-2 times per week for as long as you need, with many users feeling a difference in their depression after just 3 weeks.
Flow and your behaviour
The Flow brain stimulation and behavioural therapy app are based on decades of clinical research on tDCS and psychology, backed by longitudinal RCT studies.
Most recent meta-analyses show that this type of brain stimulation technique reduced depressive symptoms by half after six weeks of treatment. In terms of behavioural change, research has shown that sleep can act as overnight therapy and 30% of people who have depression can see improvements when they change eating habits.
Research and results
Flow is a CE certified treatment, meaning that it is approved for medical use and compliant with European protective laws for medical devices.
The Flow headset has similar efficacy to other treatments for depression but with less severe side effects. You might experience a slight tingle on your skin or redness around the area where the electrodes are places, both are completely normal and harmless.
Clinical Research: Brain Stimulation
The Flow brain stimulation treatment is based on decades of clinical research with the most recent meta analyses showing that tDCS has similar efficacy to other treatments with fewer side effects.
With over 40% of study participants experiencing a reduction in their depressive symptoms after six weeks of treatment, tDCS provides an alternative to medication that is effective and accessible with limited risk.
Clinical Research: Behavioural Therapy
The Flow therapy app is based on over hundreds of years of psychological based practices validating behavioural therapy in the treatment of depression. These have shown that exercise, sleep, diet and meditating all have a profound impact on reducing depressive symptoms when incorporated into a regular routine.
