Company Profile (Halo Neuroscience)
Halo Neuroscience develops neurotechnology to unlock human potential. Our first product, Halo Sport, applies transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to the motor cortex during athletic training, resulting in accelerated gains in strength, endurance, and skill. Halo Sport is now live with teams and athletes from the U.S. military, the Olympics, the NFL, the NBA, the MLB, and the NCAA. Our long-term goal is to build a suite of Halo products that will use neurostimulation to optimize both human performance and human health.
