SLEEP ONSET INSOMNIA SUITE
Lothar Niepoth, Dipl.-Psych.
This suite is designed by Lothar Niepoth, the President of the German Biofeedback Society. This application enables clinicians to use to help clients who suffer from sleep onset insomnia issues, with a direct and simple format.
The training is split into two different protocols, according to the needs of the individual:
- Facial and shoulder muscle relaxation protocol (uses 3 MyoScan-Pro sensors for measuring muscle tension; with optional additional sensors of respiration, temperature, skin conductance, and heart rate/blood-volume pulse)
- EEG training for quieting the mind (uses one EEG-Z sensor, with 2 secondary MyoScan-Pro sensors).
The software is designed for use with the ProComp Infiniti and ProComp5 Infiniti encoders. The software manual includes descriptions for all necessary steps of the hook-up and recording process, along with sensor application (physiology & EEG), how to navigate the software to initiate the desired recording session, performing an impedance check, procedure for training clients and reviewing their data. Clinical information for the client prompting is included directly in the software manual.
