How do TouchPoints™ Work?
Touchpoint Solution’s tagline for TouchPoints™ goes like this:
But how does that work? Magic? No, let me explain..
BLAST Technology (Bi-lateral Alternating Stimulation-Tactile Technology)! In plain English, TouchPoints™ work by interfering with the stress response of a person’s body.
The use of BLAST technology is based on pre-established set of treatments and scientific researches. However, Dr Serin, the innovator behind TouchPoints™ has adopted this tried and tested technology and used it in completely different settings – as a wearable device.
TouchPoints™ are not intended for use to treat medical conditions and should not be treated as a substitute for medical advice. TouchPoints™ are general-wellness devices that could be used daily.

The common misconception in the market is that TouchPoints™ only works for people with Autism and/or ADHD. This is not quite true!
Although the device was primarily designed for ADHD and Autistic individuals, anyone can benefit from its use.
According to the product guidelines, TouchPoints™ is meant to work for anyone who is prone to stress, anxiety, depression, or even anger cravings.
The makers of TouchPoints™ believe that the product even works to improve performance and ease stressful situations, such as exam pressures or de-stressing before an important meeting.
You can wear it on either of your wrists, keep it in your socks or just clip it to your belt. The choice is yours—but remember that the device will make a buzzing sound (20% less than your smartphone on vibration mode)!
