ABOUT CES

As far back as the first century, the Greeks and Romans used the electric eel, a variety of the “Torpedo Fish” for electrical stimulation. The electric eel was used well into the 19th century, even after the invention of electronic stimulation devices. First century writings record placing a live torpedo fish under the feet of a person suffering from gout to ease the pain. There are also reports of placing these fish on people’s foreheads to treat headaches.

Current interest in CES was initiated by Robinovitch, who in 1914 made the first claim for electrical treatment of insomnia. In 1958, the book Electro-Sleep reflected the first serious works on CES. This book inspired research in Europe and in Eastern Bloc countries, as well as in South America, Asia and finally the US. Because the CES equipment used was bulky, inconvenient, and unreliable, CES, like the electric eel, was abandoned in favour of drug therapies.

With the invention of the transistor in the 1960s, small, low-power and reliable CES devices were developed. By 1975 several companies in the US and Europe were manufacturing CES devices for public use. During this time, research on CES was quite active and scientific papers were published.

Most studies to date have shown CES as a reliable method to reduce anxiety and improve cognition in recovering alcoholics. Additional studies have shown CES to be an effective tool in reducing anxiety and improving IQ.

Research to date is quite vague on the effects of using CES at various frequencies, citing both low and high frequencies can be effective for improving learning and reducing anxiety. Many people who used CES along with AVE, have reported that they experienced deeper relaxation for prolonged periods of time. In addition to enhancing entrainment, CES increases neurotransmitter production. These neurotransmitters are necessary for information processing, memory, energy level and physical well-being. When our neurotransmitters and endorphins are not produced to necessary levels, it may lead to destructive behaviors and/or the abuse of substances as a substitute for that “natural high”.

[3]

AVE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

SETUP

The headphones connect to the headphone output jack ( ). When using an Extra User Package (sold separately), connect the 3.5mm splitter cable to the Delight Pro and connect each set of headphones to the splitter cable. Please ensure that you have the side marked “L” on your left ear and the side marked “R” on your right ear. It is recommended that you disconnect the headphones from the unit before storing or travelling to prevent accidental damage to the jack.

The Tru-Vu Omniscreen, Tru-Vu Omniscreen Viewhole, or Tru-Vu Omniscreen Multi-Color Eyeset connect to the eyeset output jack ( ) with the included

2.5mm eyeset cord. Connect one end to the Delight Pro and the other to the jack located on the lower left of the glasses. When using an Extra User Package (sold separately), connect the 2.5mm splitter cable to the Delight Pro and connect each eyeset to the splitter cable. It is recommended that you disconnect the eyeset cable from the device and from the eyeset before storing or travelling to prevent accidental damage to the jacks.

An external audio source (such as an MP3 or CD player) can be connected to the Delight Pro so that music or other audio can be listened to while running a session. Plug the stereo patch cord into the headphone output of the audio device and the audio input jack ( ) of the Delight Pro.

Note: start the Delight Pro and select a session before playing audio unless you would like to run a Sound Sync Session (see page 8).

POWER

The Delight Pro can be powered with a 9-volt alkaline or rechargeable battery, or with the 9-volt adapter provided. To install the battery, slide the cover off of the battery compartment on the back of the unit. Insert a 9-volt battery as indicated on the diagram in the battery compartment. Slide the cover back into place. An alkaline 9-volt battery will provide approximately seven (7) hours of operation.

To use the 9-volt adapter, connect the adapter to the 9-volt jack ( ) on the side of the unit. The 9-volt DC power adapter uses a 1.3mm center-positive plug. No battery power is used when plugged into an adapter.

Note: to prevent accidental shock the CES capabilities will be disabled when a power adapter is connected. To use the CES functions disconnect the adapter and run from battery power only.

[4]

The Delight Pro remembers which group was used last, and each group remembers which session was used last.

AVE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

TURN ON/TURN OFF

Press and hold the power button ( ) until the power LED turns on. The graph (between the VOL and INT controls) will display the battery level when you first turn on the unit (see Battery Level). If no session is selected within two (2) minutes, the Delight Pro will turn off.

At the end of a session, the lights and sound will fade out (Soft Off™) and the Delight Pro will automatically turn off. To end a session early, press and release the Power button ( ) to initiate a short Soft Off™ (30 seconds).

To turn off the Delight Pro at any time, press and hold the power button

( ) until the unit turns off. This may take up to three (3) seconds if a session is running.

BATTERY LEVEL

The battery level is displayed on the graph for a couple of seconds when the Delight Pro is first turned on. The battery level is also monitored and displayed periodically while the session is running.

When the battery level is getting low, the graph will display two (2) blinking bars. It is recommended that you replace the battery before running a session if this warning is displayed.

When the battery level is critically low, the graph will display a single (1) blinking bar. If this warning is displayed when you turn the unit on, replace the battery. If this warning occurs during a session, the session will end early and the battery indicator will continue to blink for a short period of time. The battery must be replaced before the unit can be used again.

SELECTING A SESSION

The Delight Pro has six (6) session groups ( , , , , , ). Each group offers five (5) sessions. The session number is indicated by the lit number between the volume and intensity controls. If no number is lit then the group has no session programmed into it.

Press and release the power button ( ) to switch between groups. The lit group icon will change. Press the volume or intensity or to highlight a session number. If no sessions are available in a group, no numbers will be lit.

Press to start the selected session. The session will begin after a five (5) second delay.

[5]

100Hz CES produces more serotonin than other frequencies, boosting relaxation and helping to improve sleep.

CES OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

SETUP

To use the CES feature of the Delight Pro, the unit must be powered from a 9V battery. If a 9-volt adapter is plugged in, the CES will be disabled as a safety precaution against electrical shock. Make sure to disconnect any adapter before using CES.

The CES stimulus cable connects to the CES output jack ( ). Attach the black clip to the left earlobe and the red clip to the right earlobe. For better conductance, it is recommended that you dampen the earlobe with a small amount of water, saliva, saline solution or hair/electrode gel.

RUNNING CES

CES will only operate while an AVE session is running. The rate of stimulus can either be synchronized with the AVE (default) or run at 100Hz. When using CES by itself, you can operate it while lying down or engaged in a simple, non-hazardous activity such as walking, reading, or office work.

Follow the instructions for selecting a session (page 5). Once the session has started, press the CES button to start the CES pulses. The CES system normally remains off and must be manually engaged every time you want to use it. Turning down the stimulus level all the way will turn off the CES system. The CES system can be turned on or off at any point during the session.

The “L” and “R” LEDs (along the top edge of the panel) blink to indicate that CES pulses are active. These LEDs blink at the CES stimulus rate. The “100Hz” LED indicates that the CES is operating at 100Hz.

100HZ MODE

By default, the CES stimulation is synchronized with the AVE stimulation in the running session. When you first turn on CES, the rate of pulses will be the same as the AVE frequency. To engage 100Hz mode at any time, press both the CES and buttons together.

Press them again to return to AVE frequencies.

It is recommended that you engage 100Hz mode when the CES intensity is set low, as the sensation from 100Hz stimulus is often much stronger than in AVE Sync mode.

[6]

CES OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

CES INTENSITY

The CES stimulus level can be adjusted at any time using the CES or buttons. The graph displays the current CES stimulus level as you are adjusting it. The top-most lit LED will blink to indicate the level is being adjusted.

The intensity of the CES stimulus should be adjusted to a level so that the stimulus is only mildly noticeable. Forty-five double blind studies have shown that CES works at a sub-threshold level (below the level of feeling). Setting the intensity too high may result in a mild irritation or blistering of the skin.

After a few minutes, you may notice that the intensity of the stimulation is stronger. This is due to a normal “sweating in” to the ear clips that results in a better electrical connection. Re-adjust the intensity to a comfortable level.

CES HINTS

The L and R LEDs do not blink during the session: The CES system is currently disabled. Try turning on the CES by pressing the CES button. When the Delight Pro is plugged into a 9-volt adapter the CES is completely disabled. Unplug the adapter and run the device from a 9V battery.

No stimulus can be felt, even with the intensity at maximum:

You may need to wet the ear clips slightly to get a better electrical connection. Reduce the intensity, put a small amount of water, saliva, saline or hair/electrode gel on the earlobe and re-attach the ear clip. Try adjusting the intensity level again.

Stimulus is too strong at the lowest setting: You may need to dry the ear clips or adjust them slightly to increase your electrical resistance. Make sure the ear clips are not touching any metal earrings.

[7]

Sound sync sessions use randomization. The left and right frequencies will vary slightly from the target rate to create a lucid mind-state.

SOUND SYNC SESSIONS

The Delight Pro has the ability to use sound to run a special session for relaxation and lucid dreaming effects. To start a sound sync session, connect your audio device (eg CD or MP3 player) to the audio in jack ( ) with the 3.5mm stereo patch cord provided.

Turn on the Delight Pro, but do not select a session. Start the playback on the audio device. After a short period (about 10 seconds) the Delight Pro will detect the audio and enter sound sync mode. The graph will activate to indicate there is audio present and the session group icons will flicker, with the selected icon lit solid.

Press and release the power button ( ) to cycle between group icons. Press the tone button ( ) to start the selected session.

A sound sync session will last for as long as audio is playing. Once the audio ends,

the session will Soft Off™. If audio is detected again during the Soft Off™, the lights will fade back up and the session will continue.

TONES AND HEARTBEAT

Tones and heartbeat may be turned on during any sound sync session. To turn on tones, press and release the tone button ( ). The tones will cycle through the available tone options (see page 3). To turn on the heartbeat, press and hold the tone button ( ). Press and hold the Tone button ( ) again to turn the heartbeat off.

[8]

USER DESIGNED SESSIONS

The User Designed session group ( ) has been left blank for storing additional, or user created sessions. This provides space for five (5) standard sessions and one (1) sound sync session. Sessions are created using the DAVID Session Editor (sold separately). Additionally, any session in the Delight Pro may be overwritten allowing the device to be customized with sessions to best suit your application.

Once the desired session(s) is created, it must be saved with the appropriate Session ID to be stored in the Delight Pro. The DAVID Session Editor v2.0 makes this easy. If you have an older version of the session editor, please contact Mind Alive Inc. to get the latest version.

USER DESIGNED SOUND SYNC SESSIONS

Sound sync sessions have special design restrictions. When played, they have no specified length, and a single target frequency per visual field. To create a sound sync session in the DAVID Session Editor, start with a new session and select sound sync from the session type list. The left and right frequencies will be the target frequency around which the session will randomize.

Sound sync sessions may not be stored in a standard slot, nor may a standard session be stored in a sound sync slot. The Delight Pro will display an error if the session type downloaded is incorrect.

WARNINGS

CRANIO-ELECTRO STIMULATION (CES)

  • Do not use if you have a heart pacer. The electrical signals may cause the pacer to malfunction, leading to serious injury or death.
  • Do not use on anyone with epilepsy, brain tumor or who has had a recent stroke.
  • Do not use while driving or operating hazardous machinery.
  • Do not place electrodes over skin lesions, new scars, cuts, eruptions, or sunburn.

Setting the intensity too high may result in a mild irritation or blistering of the skin. Set the intensity to a lower level so that the stimulus is only mildly noticeable. A double blind study showed that CES works at sub-threshold (below feeling) level.

PRECAUTIONS

Traumatic Childhood Experiences – The DAVID Delight Pro can cause the release of suppressed memories. If traumatic memories surface during or after a session, be certain to seek appropriate support.

Somnatic Shock – If abruptly returning to a normal conscious state, a mild case of somnatic shock can result, leaving the user feeling disoriented, nauseous, or experiencing a headache. All preset sessions in the DAVID Delight Pro are programmed to end with the lights fading out (Soft Off™) to avoid somnatic shock.

Orthostatic Hypotension – Occasionally when a person becomes very relaxed during a session, his/her blood pressure may fall significantly. We advise rising slowly after a session.
