ELECTRONICS RESEARCH AND PRODUCTION

---Out of Stock---

We are undergoing engineering updates, and doing some artificial intelligence research ( . ). Within a year or so we will once again be available for repairs or accessories, or to re-sell used equipment; in support of our thousands of past customers. New instruments may be available within 2 or 3 years.

The instruments shown may have a new appearance... performance and prices would be similar... We are considering combining the functions into a single instrument, which would be less expensive than the combined listed prices.

If you wish to go on our waiting list, simply tell us which instrument(s) you are interested in... do not send any payment... we will contact you before the next production cycle, to see if you are still interested.

Thank-You for your interest in Biofeedback.

biofeedback

Biofeedback is a form of learning that can lead to improved control over basic mental inclinations, such as relaxation or alertness. Specialized equipment is required for the training procedure the new learning only becomes possible when ones senses are extended to new extreme levels. With repeated attention, mental connections are enhanced in the brain, just as they are with any learning. The connections strengthen with the natural association of random success recognition and the given mental flow of those moments.

It is helpful to the process, if not imperative, for there to be a clearly defined positive goal; in order to facilitate the associations. If the brain is not actively "running" a goal thought train, or has not at least abbreviated the goal definition into long term memory for frequent access, then there is nothing with which to recognize a success, or to which to associate mental connection enhancement. In the course of days, weeks, or months of training, degrees of control are established where the desired mental mode is stimulated, as mental and/or environmental conditions lead to its need, which leads to recall of that goal definition laid into memory, with its associations to the desired mental basis of inclination.

The biofeedback instruments do the work of detecting physiological trends, and reporting that information to the learner. When relaxation control is the goal, the physiological trends of interest include increasing production of alpha brainwaves, increasing skin temperature, decreasing muscle tension, decreasing skin conductance (GSR), as well as many other parameters. For alertness control, beta brainwave production would be increased.

The most reliable correlation here is made with muscle tension everyone who reduces muscle tension significantly, feels more relaxed because of it. In many instances, however, there is no significant problem with muscle tension or control a greater benefit would be had by taking the longer road toward alpha control, because the tension is mental. Unfortunately, not all people experience enhanced alpha production as a more relaxed state it is beneficial to a good majority of enthusiastic participants. Moreover, if you are skeptical about your prospects, you are better off not getting involved with biofeedback, because the very mechanism of it would not be supported; so there would be less chance of success in this learning. This experience could worsen your stress level.

Biofeedback is used successfully by individuals for relaxation training. It is applied with greater success by practitioners; since they have experience, and a variety of additional therapeutic techniques in their repertoire; and they impart greater confidence in the individual.
