What is Flow?

According to the World Health Organisation, depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide1. Flow is a medical device and therapy app designed to treat depression. It is the first of its kind available in Europe to buy and use at home. Flow is suitable for people aged 18 years and older with a depression diagnosis.

How does it work?

People diagnosed with depression often have a lower activity in the left frontal cortex of their brain. The Flow medical device delivers a gentle electrical signal to stimulate this area and rebalance activity. During this process, users interact with a virtual therapy app which provides information and advice on various topics, including improved sleep, nutrition, meditation and exercise.

Effective

The Flow headset uses a type of neurostimulation which, in clinical studies, has been shown to have approximately the same effect as antidepressant medication, with fewer and less-severe side effects. The lifestyle techniques taught in the app are based on rigorous scientific research and have been shown in clinical studies to reduce depression.

The science behind Flow

The Flow headset uses a brain stimulation technique called tDCS (short for transcranial direct current stimulation). tDCS has been researched for many different conditions over the last 20 years.

The results of these studies indicate that tDCS has approximately the same effect as antidepressant medication – but with fewer and less-severe side effects. The result of a recent randomised controlled trial (RCT) study on 245 patients shows that 41% of the patients had a 50% reduction or more in their depression symptoms.

So, the treatment improved a lot my symptoms as no appetite, worthless, blues. It was very impressive that after the first session I felt hungry, I could not eat 2 weeks before that. I’m very excited with the results!
