Home Neurofeedback Training
We now offer our patients the technology that allows them to receive in-office quality neurofeedback at home.
Imagine being able to receive monitored remote self-training with powerful yet compact units using the same EEG-driven training protocols that our larger, in-office units utilize. We call this home neurofeedback training. While in-office training remains my preference for most of my patients, monitored remote self-training (home training) can work in many cases, without the need to drive to our office several times per week. We have been able to help many people achieve their health goals with our home training systems with the convenience of completing the sessions in the comfort of their own homes.
You supply the computer or use one of our all-in-one systems
If your computer has the minimum requirements (see below) you can rent the neurofeedback equipment and use your own computer. If don’t have a computer, or you use Apple computers, we have an all-in-one system that includes a computer/monitor combo. You do need internet access in order to take advantage of home neurofeedback training.
Decrease Your Exposure
If you are in the at-risk group for the Covid 19 virus, this will enable you to train while minimizing your exposure. We still need to perform an in-office brain-map, and subsequent report, but once that`s done, you will be provided with a take-home unit and an app for use with your home computer. We will also demonstrate for you how to use the equipment, to ensure an excellent training experience.
To perform neurofeedback training at home, we recommend a quiet, softly lit room, like the ones in our office. Electronics should be turned off (that includes turning off your cell phone), to decrease interference with the brain measurements during the training session itself.
No More Traffic!
The investment in our home training program is no more than in-office training, but for those patients who live further away, this allows for you to get professional level neurofeedback without the driving or traffic. Each training session is recorded on our cloud-based system for my review, just like our in-office sessions, and the routine follow-ups will be done by phone or via our HIPAA compliant patient portal.
