BrainPlus is a brain activity measurement device with neurofeedback training system to improve user concentration, relaxation and memory. The program utilizes a state-of-the-art, easy-to-use EEG headband that allows users to receive real-time feedback on their brain activity while on our training sessions or playing training games.
By using video games and state-of-the-art training sessions, users can learn what it feel like to improve their concentration, relaxation and memory. We interpret it into easy readable figures and various types of graphs. The application will record your result. The next day or the next time you return to training, you can force your brain to get a higher score. Users can also track their progress using our proprietary analytics dashboard.
As the brain signal researchers, we proudly make real EEG device, the perfect BrainPlus for you. Our goal is to guide you to have a better brain and a better life.
Frankly, it works like a blood pressure machine. However, in contrast, it measures your brain waves’ power, not your blood pressure level.
BrainPlus uses neurofeedback with training exercises and games that users control by wearing our brain-sensing EEG headband. Training sessions or playing the games, users receive feedback level on their concentration, relaxation, and memory, which BrainPlus will guide users to improve in these state of mind.
You can use our application to train your brain, play a game and many other provided tasks, only using your thoughts. For example, you can focus a candle on a screen to improve the visibility; the more you focus it, the more it lights up.
Continuous training as such will make your brain function better and improve its concentration, relaxation and memory.
The BrainPlus brain-sensing EEG headband measures your brain activity to determine when you’re focused, and our smart system reward you for paying attention.
For example, in one training session your focus will control the visibility of the candle light. The more you focus it, the more it lights up, but if you get distracted, the visibility will drop.
By measuring your brain waves through neurofeedback and applying that feedback to the tablet screen, we’re able to help you learn to control your focus and increase your attention over time.
The BrainPlus brain-sensing EEG headband measures your brain activity to determine when you’re relaxed, and our training session reward you for being more relax.
For example, in one training session your relaxation will control the relaxation score. The more you relax, the more score show, otherwise it will drop.
This eases your mind using several methods and will reflect your relaxation score. Training like this from time to time will improve your peace of mind.
The BrainPlus brain-sensing EEG headband measures your brain activity while you are playing memory based game to determine your brain wave power associated with memory, and our training session reward you for getting more power of brain wave associated with memory.
For example, in one training session your memory will be trained using the picture matching game. The more power of your brain wave associated with memory increase, the more score show, otherwise it will drop.
Your memory will be trained using several methods such as the picture matching game, whereas we will show your memory score concurrently. Training like this from time to time will make your brain function better and enhance your memory.
Old fashion methods used in hospitals to improve brain function like playing a card game or reading the 3D image, will be done on the paper and measure your result with big and messy EEG machine later. With BrainPlus, you will know the result of your brain improvement immediately by the BrainPlus tablet screen. Thanks to this neurofeedback technology, you can force your brain to improve in real-time using BrainPlus.
Also, you can train your brain with any other normal life method like meditation and so on. However, by the end of the day, you will be able to measure your brain’s power improvement with BrainPlus. Make your brain training more fun and meaningful by tracking it.
For the best calibration, we took a trip to little Tibet – Leh Ladahk, the land of lama, iconic of the meditation master. We collect the data and do the comprehensive research to ensure that our device works just great for our user.
Neurofeedback (NFB), also called neurotherapy or neurobiofeedback, is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography (EEG), to teach self-regulation of brain function. Typically, sensors are placed on the scalp to measure activity, with measurements displayed using video displays or sound.
After much research, we found the correlation between several states of mind (Concentration, Relaxation, Memory, etc.) and brain waves. Our reference research published on IEEE publication in 2012. We also conducted a research on how to improve those states of mind. From this knowhow, we can extract your brain waves, monitor their power and guide you to have improved brain power. This study showed BrainPlus can guide users to improve concentration, relaxation and memory.
Unlike other device, we found the correlation between several states of mind (Concentration, Relaxation, Memory, etc.) and brain waves as our reference research published on IEEE publication in 2012. We can track your brain wave and use it to train your brain in the proper way.
We are experts in what we do. We know how sensitive the EEG signal is. Sensors have to stick firmly on the scalp to read brain waves. We noticed some other products elsewhere, strangely placing sensors on thick hair or on the back of the ears. Hair interrupts the EEG signal so instead, we place sensors in the best position as proved in our reference IEEE research paper.
The BrainPlus headband is one of the first consumer-friendly electroencephalography (EEG) headbands with 3 sensors located at the the forehead (F7 – FpZ – F8). Research shows that this is among the best locations to record EEG signals associated with concentration, relaxation and memory. The combination of these 3 sensors makes our EEG signals more accurate.
We know how the body movement interferes with the EEG signal so our application will also guide you for the best outcome.
BrainPlus does not need 3rd party devices like a mobile phone or PC. We bundle it with our Windows10 customized port tablet for brain wave reading. You can monitor your brain activity and train your brain concurrently. Our state of the art technology will guide you to achieving a better brain and a better life.
BrainPlus tablet has a customized USB port that will be fully compatible with the USB dongle from the headband; hence, a better signal quality.
Beside the better signal quality, it’s easy and ready-to-use for elderly or anyone.
Yes! You get the powerful Windows10 tablet for work, leisure or for use when away from the training session!
EEG signal is very sensitive. We want to have the best signal quality, without interruption from Bluetooth or Wi-Fi at the source of the signal transmission. So BrainPlus finally comes up with wired solutions like in the expensive medical grade EEG device uses in hospital.
With our wired solution, there’ll be also no battery required in the headbands. This brings better safety and less signal interruption.
EEG signal is also sensitive to body movement or even eye-blinking. For the best practical use, we propose using it as a stationary device not wearable.
Not like the other products suffered with a plastic pressure onto the head when wearing it for long period of time. The BrainPlus headband is designed with comfortable elastic materials. It can be adjust to ensure a comfortable fit for both children and adults without effect the sensors location.
BrainPlus is the first EEG headband designed specially to fit the heads of children as young as 5 years old.
Not only brain-controlled game. We also provide brain training sessions for you. Think of it like a gym for your mind: use proven clinical methods to train your brain and further strengthen your concentration muscle, relaxation as a yoga and memory as a side benefit. Watch as your concentration, relaxation and memory grows over time.
BrainPlus provides platform for user brain’s health. We built the website and application BRAINPLUS.CO to be a one-stop platform for the user. The user can track their training record and an in-depth analysis of brain health.
The BrainPlus training sessions include daily and weekly assessments so you can track your progress over time on our interactive online dashboard to see improvements in your concentration, relaxation and memory ; and to stay motivated to achieve your goals.
