MindPlace is pleased to offer a USB version of our popular ThoughtStream Biofeedback Performance System. This tool measures the rapid, tiny fluctuations in your skin's electrical resistance known as the Galvanic Skin Response (GSR). When your psychological stress/arousal level increases, skin moisture increases and ThoughtStream USB can help teach you to monitor and control this. With regular practice it is an ideal relaxation training system.
Through use, the Thoughtstream learns what sensitivity level works best for you. It's very easy to use! Simply put on the included hand sensor, allow the machine to calibrate to your current state, and immediately you are tracking your stress level with the goal to go as low as you can.
ThoughtStream USB employs three forms of feedback:
Visual: The front panel display starts out all red. Your goal is to turn it all green. It automatically progresses through a series of levels each further down from your initial state.
Auditory: Use the included headphones and learn to lower the pitch of the melodic sound. The sound follows the readings providing feedback allowing you to close your eyes and relax.
Computer: Connect the ThoughtStream USB to your Windows PC and use the free ThoughtStream Interface software to graph your sessions. Compare multiple sessions to see how you have been progressing. You can also add interactive biofeedback games by purchasing the Mental Games computer software.
The ThoughtStream Biofeedback System allows precise and tailored readings suited for use in your daily life. It is portable, powerful and easy stress management tool, helping you to calm down and be more aware. Biofeedback needs to be "learned" so be patient with yourself in the process!.
