Scientifically Validated

EVENPULSEâ„¢ is the subject of a 3 year, $3M DoD study.

GOALS & OBJECTIVES

In 2009, EVENPULSE (formally MAGIS Group) was awarded the opportunity to train 6,000 deploying U.S. Army combat soldiers, going into and returning from the harshest environments. EVENPULSE maintained that through our methodology we could reduce soldier stress, increase internal awareness, and provide relevant, easy-to-learn skills in autonomic self-regulation. With anticipated soldier use, we projected positive results among individuals and teams including improved decision-making, higher engagement, improved team cohesion, and lower markers for PTSD, anxiety and depression.  

Soldiers received one four-hour block of instruction before leaving for a 15-month tour to Afghanistan and after their return. They also participated in qualitative and quantitative analysis before, during and after the deployment regarding the EVENPULSE resilience training (formally Optimal Performance under Stress/WAROPS®). 

OVER A 15-MONTH DEPLOYMENT
70% of soldiers used the training skills weekly

STUDY OUTCOMES

The following sample of research outcomes were gathered at various iterations - 6 months into the deployment and upon return of the deployment. Soldiers surveyed in Afghanistan said they were using the program skills regularly, with nearly 40% using them daily and 70% using them at least weekly. By the end of the deployment, 65% of the soldiers studied said they had used ALL of the training skills in the course of their mission. The key findings among those who took and used the training regularly (at least once per week) show:

  • Lower levels of post-traumatic stress (PCL PTSD checklist);
  • Higher levels of well-being (SF36 well-being survey);
  • Lower anxiety and depression (Beck Inventory);
  • Greater resilience (Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale).

The U.S. Department of Defense had not undertaken a study on this scale of an independent training program and has not since. Researchers termed the results "statistically significant in many areas". The results, to date, are pending publication in scientific journals by the research teams at Samueli Institute and RAND.

I found a balance between mental and emotional energy. It showed me that practice involves more than just physical efforts.
