Just introduced is an intriguing new brainwave monitoring computer technology that has applications in many industries and situations. Check out the release on the wave of the future……
Unprecedented New Technology Reads & Reacts To Brainwaves Through The Extremities Of The Body Freer Logic’s “BodyWave” Provides Interactive Feedback Via Wearable Armband Sensors
(Asheville, NC)– Imagine a small armband sensor that allows the user to be
able to control a computer by mind alone; or determine if he/she is being
inattentive or distracted while driving; or know exactly when to swing a
golf club for optimum performance and results. A new wearable technology
called Body Wave from Freer Logic that does just that is now available for
applications in many different situations and industries.
BodyWave reads brain activity through the human body, not by intrusive
headsets and wires like technologies of the past, but via a uniquely
innovative brainwave monitor that attaches to the arm or leg. In the past,
brainwave monitoring devices required awkward or invasive attachment to the
head. BodyWave’s patent pending design monitors the brain’s physiologic
signal through the body. Dry sensors acquire brain signal and transfer it
wirelessly to a PC. When BodyWave is used with Freer Logic’s 3D computer
simulations, it can activate and deactivate those computer simulations by
mind alone. It can also teach stress control, increase attention, and
facilitate peak performance.
How Does BodyWave Work?
BodyWave monitors brain activity through the body instead of the head. It
can monitor levels of attention, cognitive processing, relaxation, or
anxiety and stress. This brain activity is transferred from BodyWave to the
PC where it can be used to control 3D simulations or field operations on
screen. Through BodyWave, the user can only activate the PC simulation by
actively engaging in the program. This means maximizing his/her attentive
state while minimizing anxiety and stress. As the user begins to pay
attention, the barometer reading goes up. If distracted or anxious, the bar
goes down giving direct feedback about the cognitive and physiologic state
of the user. When a peak performance state is achieved, as indicated on the
screen, the user can activate the training environment. Loss of this fully
engaged cognitive state will deactivate the simulation until full
concentration is achieved once again.
Avatars within the program can act as teachers to provide instruction or as
a surrogate student to participate in lessons or simulations. Avatars,
machines, or even control panels themselves can be controlled by BodyWave
input. For example, when the user clicks on the avatar, he/she can use
his/her attention or peak mental engagement to make the avatar walk to the
control panel. If the user becomes distracted or anxious, he/she can no
longer control the avatar and he stops.
Training is initiated in a low-distraction, non- threatening environment.
Because the trainee can see his/her mental or physiologic state in
real-time, training environments can progressively introduce greater states
of distraction, stress or duress that are typically experienced in the
field. The trainee thus learns to act in a peak performance state even under
Just A Few Applications For BodyWave:
Sports Training – For example, BodyWave will tell you exactly when you’ve
reached a peak performance state to sink a putt.
Driving Safety: A steering wheel could send information to a car’s computer
to warn a driver when he/she is not paying attention.
Job Stress Management: For example:
1- An Air Traffic Controller could know exactly when his/her stress level is
2- Police officers, soldiers, or firefighters could train to maintain
optimal performance under duress.
Relaxation Time: BodyWave connected to a cell phone allows anyone to learn
to meditate or relax.
And much more…
Freer Logic & Technologies CEO Peter Freer has helped ADHD kids for years
with his Play Attention technology that used a sensor lined helmet to access
brain activity. Although effective, at times it proved invasive and
inconvenient. “By producing this new advanced technology, we have opened the
brain interface market to the mass consumer market,” Freer says.
In the near future the BodyWave’s patent pending technology will be able to
collect brain activity through a wristwatch of sorts or implanted in a
soldier’s clothes so that his/her mental acuity readings could be reported
back to the commander.
The BodyWave system can be purchased for general cognitive enhancement use
for $1,795 at:
www.playattention.com and includes the BodyWave unit and
full training and access to the PC applications.
Freer Logic can also adapt the BodyWave system in “app” form for any
specific industry or application for an additional cost.
