Forbrain / TOS Review







I recently received a product called Forbrain from Sound for Life LTD to review.  It is quite different than any other product I have reviewed before. 

This product looks like a head set, but instead of listening to music or other audio, you listen to your own voice. 

Forbrain uses bone conduction to transmit the sound of your own voice faster, and with more clarity than air conduction. 

It has a filter that enhances specific frequencies of speech that surprises the brain to increase memory, attention, and sensory processing. 

It corrects the way you hear your own voice, which leads to better speech production and increased confidence. 





OK, so your probably wondering just what/who this product is made for. 

Forbrain helps people with many issues.

 Some areas that you could expect to see an improvement in are:

  • A greater comprehension of the written word and verbal fluency
  • An improvement in verbal or short term memory
  • A sustained attention span and a greater ability to stay on task
  • An increase in concentration and focus
  • An improvement in speech, pronunciation and fluency
  • A greater self esteem and self confidence

If you could use help in any of these areas, Forbrain is for you. 


Forbrain can be used with children ages 3 to adult. There are a few exceptions. 

Forbrain is not suitable for:

  • Children under 3
  • For people with Parkinson's disease
  • People with hearing loss in both ears of 80%
  • People carrying a cochlear implant
  • People with epilepsy

OK, now your probably wondering just how you use this product!

In a nutshell, you put the headset on, read or sing out loud, and listen to yourself.

I know that's an oversimplification, but that's really all there is to it. There is obviously a lot more going on scientifically, but as far as how to use it, that's pretty much it.

If you are interested in the science behind it you can read about the scientific evaluation and the scientific results

Forbrain is meant to be used daily, for 6 to 10 weeks. (It can be repeated)

Depending on your age, you would use this for 10 to 30 minutes a day.

 The following chart shows how many minutes you should use it per day depending on your age, and what areas you can expect to see improvement in depending on age as well. 










OUR EXPERIENCE:

When I first learned that I would be reviewing this product, I thought I'd use it for myself to see if it would improve my memory and for my niece to see if it would improve her attention span. 






I tried it myself first to see what it is like. I'll admit I had NO idea what to expect. It was a little intimidating. 

It is a little weird at first, but you get used to it pretty fast. You hear yourself talking, but it's like if you were covering your ears and talking, except that you can hear everything clearly. 

I read out loud while I had it on. I do see how it can make you aware of your pronunciation and speech. 

You are forced to hear yourself, I mean really hear yourself.  You could read out loud or talk out loud all day long and never really hear, or pay attention to the way you speak, or how you sound. When your wearing this device, you are totally aware. 

My niece is almost 6 and she couldn't wait to try it. I put it on her and I read out loud to her and she repeated what I said, or she recited the alphabet. 


We've had this device for 6 weeks. You are suppose to use it for 6 to 10 weeks. I think I need the full 10 weeks to be able to see full results, however I do think that this product has potential. I definitely see how it increases your focus already, even though it's only been 6 weeks.

 We have also had a lot of sickness the last couple of weeks. I haven't been able to use it with my niece the entire time as I had planned, due to a bad case of Croup. 

I do think this is a case where I need to add an update later on, but from what I have seen already, I expect more good things from it, along with what I have already seen, such as increase in focus and awareness of speech and pronunciation. 

I encourage you to read the reviews and testimonials  on the Forbrain site as well as the reviews of my fellow crew members.
