Area 23 and Woojer Debut World’s First Music-Powered Airway Clearance Vest for Cystic Fibrosis

04 May 2021


SICK BEATS by Woojer is the world’s first music-powered airway clearance vest for cystic fibrosis (CF), using the clinically proven modality of soundwave therapy to merge the music kids love with the daily treatment they need, all on the Spotify platform.

While working with Woojer, Area 23 redesigned their consumer haptic vest to meet the needs of CF treatment—adding additional transducers, optimizing lung placement, and boosting the 40Hz output. Additionally, Area 23 used an AI-enabled sniffer to search 30 million songs in the Spotify library for therapeutic frequencies, identifying thousands of 40Hz songs for use with the SICK BEATS vest.

Since its launch, 2,000+ CF families within the Claire’s Place Foundation network have access to the vest—on a rolling basis, free of charge.
