  • Biofeedback Machines

    As such, biofeedback devices offer feedback on an individual’s bodily condition. Biofeedback machines serve as complex, recognizing intrinsic body functions with striking precision and sensitivity. These machines are capable of offering immediate information regarding the biological condition of an individual, for instance heart rate, respiration, skin conductivity, skin surface temperature, and muscle tension. The information obtained is employed to evaluate and direct treatment progress. There are different biofeedback forms comprising of EEG (electroencephalogram) biofeedback, otherwise recognized as neurofeedback. As such mental illnesses treated using neurofeedback is done, but are not constrained to ADHD, insomnia, anxiety, and depression devoid of…
