Movement. Function.

The SR-100 Technology

Sensory signals provide critical information about the environment and the position of the body to the brain and are required for the planning and execution of movements.  As we age those signals can slow down or become weaker.

For those who live with proprioceptive deficits, these signals may lack the strength and clarity they need. Accelera’s patented technology has been shown to enhance these signals and improve movement, function, and freedom.

The Science Behind the SR-100

Many systems rely on interdependent signals to perform.

For instance, a driver sends a signal to an automobile to turn left, or an incoming call sends a signal to your phone to ring. The human body is no different: our muscles rely on the sensory signals of force and position to operate in an ideal state. For many people these signals are too weak to be detected; this negatively impacts functionality.

Accelera’s technology adds a spectrum of random frequencies and amplitudes to boost these signals and maximize information transfer for SR-100 wearers. The effect is a comfortable gentle vibration in a wearable wrap that supports proprioception, balance and movement for active lifestyles.

What is Proprioception?

Proprioception is the body’s ability to sense joint position, movements, and actions. (It’s sometimes described as the “sixth sense.”) A simple example of healthy proprioception is the ability to touch your nose with your eyes closed.

Different types of proprioceptors are activated depending on limb velocity and movement, load on a limb, limb limits, and joint position. The central nervous system integrates this information to create an overall representation of body position, movement, and acceleration. This information informs motor planning as well as automatic corrections when the motion is being performed.

Proprioception is the body’s ability to sense its location in space and movements. Examples include being able to walk without looking at your feet or keeping your eye on the ball, not the racket in sports.

When an individual’s proprioception is compromised due to illness, injury, or other conditions that affect the muscles, nerves, and brain, it can cause long-term or permanent proprioception impairment. As we age, we also experience a loss of proprioception which commonly results in compromised gait and balance.

Introducing the SR-100

The first wearable technology that is comfortable and is intended to enhance proprioception using a science known as stochastic resonance. Based on years of research, development, and testing by leading scientists, this technology is now available.

How the SR-100 Works

A spectrum of random frequencies called stochastic resonance (SR) forms the basis of the SR-100 wearable device’s technology. It delivers gentle, random vibrations to help enhance sensory feedback and improve the wearer’s proprioception.

Stochastic Resonance (SR) can be broadly described as a natural phenomenon where the presence of random noise in a nonlinear system results in improved output signal quality compared to the absence of noise (McDonnell & Abbott, 2009). When the white noise and the original signal are both present, the signal is amplified. This process increases the signal-to-noise ratio, making the original signal more distinguishable. This phenomenon, as it improves a signal, enhances proprioception which results in improved body awareness and movement.

Stochastic Resonance (SR) has been researched for over 25 years at leading instructions, with all studies showing support for proprioception and therefore balance and movement. 

“Results May Vary”

Supporting Research

Research has demonstrated the ability of this patented technology to support proprioception, better balance and gait, movement and agility and more.

The SR-100 simply delivers this science to the body in a comfortable, and wearable format.
