The premise of the FocusBand is Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback training uses EEG (Electroencephalogram) which accurately measures Brainwave activity through soft woven sensors, safely placed on the surface of the head. This brainwave activity can then be monitored visually and by audio tones.
Through the brain’s sophisticated feedback system, individuals are taught, in a game-like format, to effectively exercise their brain, leading to increased awareness and differentiation of mental states.
Neurofeedback naturally empowers the brain to effortlessly develop increased control and strength, much like the effects of weight lifting to develop muscle strength or jogging to improve cardiovascular fitness.
