Biofeedback has long been accepted as one of the most effective tools available for the development of a calm and mindful awareness, the management of stress and development of focus and concentration. With this simple form of biofeedback, you become more aware of your responses, and learn to change inappropriate reactions so that you are more comfortable and in control.
The ThoughtStream personal Galvanic Skin Response (GSR)* biofeedback system measures tiny, rapid fluctuations in skin moisture associated with the degree of arousal via a small palm sensor that measures the rapid, tiny fluctuations in your skin's electrical resistance (GSR). When your psychological stress/arousal level increases, skin moisture increases, and ThoughtStream USB can help teach you to change this. In use, it 'learns' what sensitivity level works best for you, and "feeds back" this body/mind information to you in several forms of feedback.
- Visual. The front panel display starts out all red, your goal is to turn it all green.
- Auditory. Use the included headphones, and learn to lower the pitch of the melodic sound.
If you want to graph your sessions, you can connect the ThoughtStream USB to your Windows PC, and use the free ThoughtStream Interface software to graph sessions, and compare multiple sessions to see how you have been progressing.
Or choose the multimedia PC software "Mental Games" for more complex training. Designed for use with Mindplace Thoughtstream USB Personal Biofeedback – this software allows you to control objects on your screen with your mind. Simple and effective, our ThoughtStream personal biofeedback system teaches you how to become more aware of your responses to stress and consequently you can “learn” to be more relaxed and at ease.
