Neuroscience-Based Antimicrobial Patterned Socks – Mental Health Report Released

Sustainable sock brand Boomhi Inc released a report that compiles recent research conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation on the mental health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Boomhi Inc, an earth-friendly sock brand based in Ontario, Canada, has released a report on the implications of the global pandemic for individuals’ mental health and substance abuse. Boomhi socks are designed with a special tactile pattern that improves a wearer’s sense of wellbeing based on the principles of neuroscience and haptic perception.

Drawing from research conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation, Boomhi describes the negative effects of the pandemic and subsequent economic recession on the well-being of individuals with substance abuse disorders.

In the wake of the global crisis, Boomhi now offers sustainable socks that are specifically designed to promote one’s mental and emotional well-being. The company’s trademark Elevated Mind Technology, which is based on over 50 years of neuroscience research, was developed to help customers feel their absolute best.

The tactile pattern that is woven into each pair of Boomhi socks naturally triggers a neurological response from an individual’s feet to their brain. Once the Central Nervous System has processed this information, it causes the body to instantly enter a more joyful and optimistic mental state.

Throughout the pandemic, roughly 4 in 10 American adults have reported experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression. Due to growing stress over the virus, many individuals have also described sleeping and eating difficulties, increased alcohol consumption, or worsening of chronic conditions.

Young adults, in particular, are susceptible to these mental health drops due to factors such as university closures or loss of income. When compared to adults, individuals ages 18 to 24 are more likely to report suicidal thoughts and substance abuse. The report notes that other populations at risk of these pandemic-related consequences include essential workers, parents of young children, and communities of colour.

Boomhi’s socks are produced from antimicrobial, moisture-wicking polyester and spandex fabrics made from recycled plastic. The products’ reinforced heel areas and flat toe seams are designed to provide users with maximum comfort and support.

Customers can choose between the brand’s classic crew or quarter top styles, each of which is available in sizes extra-small through extra-large.

A spokesperson for the company said: “We believe in wellness without drugs, side effects, or invasive treatments. Together with a team of world-class thought leaders and health professionals, our Elevated Mind Technology was born.”
