Community Wellbeing


This is a study examining the effects of cutting edge SubPac technology. SubPac is a wearable tactile vest that allows individuals to be fully immersed in a vibro-acoustic experience. The SubPac vest uses transducers to simulate low bass frequencies to give the listener a fully tactile, immersive music experience. Such technologies can be used to reduce stress, promote wellbeing, and enhance positive emotional experiences.
