In a world teeming with distractions, the ability to focus and pay attention is crucial, whether at work, on the road or in the classroom. Recent research has shown that this ability, like any skill, can be developed and sharpened, and we’re happy to announce our newest development at NeuroPlus to make training easier. Today we are launching the NeuroPlus brain-sensing headset, which can be found on Kickstarter.
The NeuroPlus EEG headset features a flexible design and an adjustable band to allow for a comfortable fit, no matter the age or hat size of the user. The adjustable EEG sensor, positioned at the top of the head, enables accurate data collection from brain regions important for the NeuroPlus applications.
Like a smartphone, the headset also contains an accelerometer, and other sensors, that measure your head and body motion and your muscle tension in calmness and self-control training exercises. The more you can sit still and maintain composure, the better you’ll do in the game.
The headset and software are compatible with iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth 4.0 (Bluetooth Low Energy) support, and is charged via micro USB.
The NeuroPlus headset will be compatible with the NeuroPlus game-based attention-training system that combines neurofeedback, biofeedback, and cognitive training to improve focus and self-control. The state-of-the-art, easy-to-use EEG headset allows consumers to receive real-time feedback on their brain activity and body movements while they play a set of fun training games.
“Research into neuroplasticity shows training over time can make your brain better at paying attention — just like exercising a muscle,” CEO Jake Stauch said. “In order to see results quickly, we recommend using the program three times per week for at least 20 minutes each session. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to put NeuroPlus into production and bring them into individuals’ homes. NeuroPlus is not a treatment for any condition, but is a specialized, clinically proven, fun and engaging way for everyone to improve focus and self-control.”
The NeuroPlus headset is now available with a 1 year subscription to training games on Kickstarter starting at $249. Early backers can take advantage of purchasing the device for nearly 50% off the retail price.
