FocusBand – Fast & Focused App

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.

It’s the result of Day’s work in controlling brain activity using an app-based product called FocusBand.

When you wear the company’s headgear and hit a golf shot, sensors record what’s going on in your head – namely, are you focused or are you distracted?

The device was invented in 2009 by the Australian father and son team of Graham and Henry Boulton to help train athletes in all sports get into what is commonly known as the zone”, or as the Boulton’s call it, a “state of no-mindedness or Mushin”. The goal? Training your mind to perform the process of each swing without having to consciously think about the routine or the outcome as you perform it.
