FocusCalm Headset – Wearable EEG Neurofeedback Brain Training Device

Brain training (or mental training) can be an essential part of maintaining a healthy mental state, as performing it on a regular basis can greatly help to improve cognitive functions like memory recall, problem solving, concentration, and attention to detail. Essentially, brain training activities work in a similar but ultimately better way than working out does. While performing physical exercise regularly can offer the body cardiovascular and muscle-building benefits, as well as multiple mental health benefits (as it also involves constant thinking, processing, and learning of new physical skills), a brain training activity doesn’t always have to be exercise-related. In fact, research has found that creative outlets like painting and other art forms such learning an instrument, doing expressive writing, or even learning a new language can also help to improve one’s cognitive functions. Alternatively, you can also engage in brain training games, which use fun and intense mental workout sessions to target and strengthen different cognitive functions. Ultimately, brain training games can bring you many different mental health benefits such as helping to improve your memory, (which consequently can also help to reduce the risk for Dementia or Alzheimer’s), as well as improve your problem solving and critical thinking skills, your attention span, and your overall reaction time. This is where the FocusCalm Headset comes in, as this unique and innovative wearable device can greatly improve the way you train your brain for having better focus and a calmer mind.

The FocusCalm Headset is a wearable EEG brain training device that can be used for stress reduction and concentration improvement, as it utilizes EEG technology to detect and analyze your brain’s activity, which is then translated to a neurofeedback score that’s displayed on its Smartphone App in order to help you train and strengthen your brain’s ability to get into a state of relaxation and also to strengthen different brain functions such as memory, attention span and decision-making, all through a variety of engaging activities, while also providing you with real-time measurements of your current stress level on a scale from 0 to 100.

By utilizing a simple three-step process that consists of a learn, practice, and challenge phases, this wearable EEG brain training device seamlessly creates an easy way to achieve mental clarity and reduced stress.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the FocusCalm Headset, where we’ll be checking out its design, discuss exactly how this wearable EEG brain training device is designed to work, and talk a little more about how you can use it together with its Smartphone App to train your brain.

Thanks to its ultra-comfortable fit, you can wear it at any time, including when you’re at home, while you’re at work, or even while working out / practicing sports.

Moving on to the device’s components. Integrated at the back of the device’s inner-side, there’s a set of three (x3) built-in EEG plates/chips that connect to the back-side of a user’s head.

Then, at the front of the device’s inner-side, there are two more separate sets of three (x3) built-in EEG chips that connect to the left- and right-side temples of a user’s head.

INTERFACE / CONTROL PANEL

For controlling the device’s different functionalities, the FocusCalm Headset also integrates a set of built-in Controls, which are all integrated directly onto the device itself.

Integrated at the front-left side of the device, there’s built-in Power On/Off Button, while at its front-right side, there’s a built-in rubberized protective cover for its Micro-USB Charging port.

Lastly, integrated directly above the device’s dedicated Power Button, there’s also a set of three (x3) Mode Buttons that are used to control the device’s different brain-tracking functionalities and brain game activities.

CONNECTIVITY

For establishing a wireless connectivity with its Smartphone App (discussed in more detail further ahead), the FocusCalm Headset utilizes Bluetooth Connectivity, working in a maximum wireless range of approximately 32 ft. (10 m).

BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE

For its power-source, this wearable EEG brain training device utilizes a built-in high-capacity Lithium-Ion battery that can offer the device a long-lasting battery life of around 10 hours of runtime, which equates to an approximate daily use of 20 minutes for a full-month (31 days).

Whenever the device’s battery runs out of power, know that recharging the device’s internal battery is also quick and easy, as all you have to do is to connect its USB to Micro-USB Charging Cable to the device’s Micro-USB Charging port, and then to any USB Charger, and just wait a few hours for its battery to be back to full power.

THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The FocusCalm App

As said before, the FocusCalm Headset works together with its dedicated smartphone companion App, called the FocusCalm, which is available to download for free for both iOS and Android devices.

The FocusCalm tracks the progress of a user’s brain activity in three dimensions: intensity, continuity and speed. After detected and analyzed, that brain activity is then translated to a neurofeedback score (represents a real-time measurement of a user’s current brain-stress level on a scale from 0 to 100), which is displayed in the form of a large number via the App’s Brainwave Tracker to informs users about how well their brain is performing.

This is done by having the user take part in a variety of engaging brain-training activities, which are used to help each user train and strengthen their brain’s ability to get into a state of relaxation and also to strengthen different brain functions such as memory, attention span and decision-making.
