Merging Best-in-Class Engineering & Latest Science


Brainwaves are the patterns of electric pulses made by brain cells when they communicate with each other. Brainwaves are grouped into frequency bands, each having specific characteristics associated with them. The ability of the brain to be flexible and produce more or less of each band depending on the requirements of the moment is key. Your brain’s inherent neuroplasticity allows it to learn new brain states. Learn how's electroencephalogram (EEG) technology helps you Train desired brainwaves and improve cognitive performance.


Neurofeedback has long been used in neurotherapy clinics for recovery and more recently for peak performance. It is a form of biofeedback that is specific to the brain’s electrical signals. It has been referred to as a mirror for the mind which allows you to progressively Train in self-awareness and self-regulation with real-time objective feedback.

Photobiomodulation uses specialized, non-evasive light-emitting-diodes (LEDs) to stimulate your brain. The light energy is absorbed by photoreceptors in your brain cells and initiates metabolic processes in your brain. The result is improved circulation and oxygen utilization. This health Boost for your brain cells is experienced as an energy lift and an accelerated ability to learn. Our integration of this technology into Training helps accelerate the pace of our neurofeedback results whereas, using this technology as a stand-alone within Boosts provides you the option of on-demand state changes when you need them.

Heart-Rate Variability Training

With an understanding of the interdependence of body and mind, has incorporated heart-coherence Training. Heart coherence Training also referred to as heart rate variability (HRV) Training, is a scientifically evidenced way to rebalance the nervous system and create a healthy stress management response. The physiological phenomenon of HRV is the variation in the time intervals between heartbeats. uses PPG (photoplethysmography) sensors to measure your heart rate and provides real-time audiovisual feedback through app, like a heart mirror. Heart coherence is the objective and it is evidenced by a consistent rhythmic heart rate pattern.

Brain Networks

The network view of the brain reveals how the various parts of the brain communicate and coordinate to get things done. More than a purely physiological view, these networks (also known as large scale brain networks) show how neurons wire and fire together like electrical circuits. neuromodulation targets the rich club network of the brain which encapsulates 12 such large scale networks. The 3 most prominent ones that modulates are the Salient Network, the Default Mode Network and the Executive Network.

Event Related Potentials

Event Related Potentials (ERPs) are used in clinical studies to evaluate the brain’s processing speed. Like with a CPU, faster clock speed means more power. These provide results of the brain’s timing in response to a defined test (specifically audio and visual stimulus and response). Event Related Potentials are part of the Assess toolkit giving you unprecedented visibility to your brain’s biometric.
