NeurOptimal offers a unique form of training for the brain, giving us the opportunity to function at our best. This dynamic feedback system uses 5 diodes (attached to the ears and head) to detect brain wave patterns. The patient listens to music while resting or watching the graphic display on the monitor.
When the NeurOptimal module detects a variation in brain waves, the software pauses the music for milliseconds at a time, which triggers your brain to refocus. NeurOptimal is able to give immediate feedback to your brain and help you feel calm and focused. Many patients report a significant change in their focus, positive thinking, and general sense of calm. Visit the NeurOptimal® Page to learn more.
