Will the 2.0 Clinical (Professional) software work with my
Possibly, however if the serial number
of your BrainMaster module is under 1825 you will need to confirm
with the office the need to send the module in for an update. Simply
call the office and if an update is required you will be given an
RGA number to place inside and outside of the box prior to sending
to BrainMaster. There will be “no charge” for the 2.0 module update.
Our intent is to ship your module back within one to five business
Will one 2.0 Clinical Pro software upgrade work on all my
No, you will need to purchase a 2.0 Clinical
(Pro) software package for each BrainMaster module you own and
intend to use "clinically or professionally" in your practice. Each
2.0 Clinical software package is tied to one specific BrainMaster
module and will not run on other modules.
What if I change computers or take my BrainMaster from one
office to another? Will I need new software for each
No. Each 2.0 Clinical Pro software package is tied
to one specific BrainMaster module and is not tied to the computer.
You may take your BrainMaster from computer to laptop, office to
home without concern.
What is auto-thresholding and why is this offered in
Automatic thresholding is a user programmable software
feature that makes it unnecessary for the end user to continually
monitor and adjust training thresholds. It provides ability for
"hands-free" operation in which the 2.0 software adjusts training
thresholds as needed throughout the session providing optimal
training settings with minimal or no user intervention. This is a
feature generally found in costly equipment and software.
How does auto-thresholding work in 2.0?
(user) presets targets for trainee training purposes. Targets are
percentages of time over threshold. Example: Enhance (frequency
training) is generally set between 50% - 80%; Inhibit between 20% -
50% and High Beta 10%. The trainee’s training goal is to train
within the targets presented. Once set the software will
automatically calculate new thresholds for the previous 15 seconds
of training. Based on the clinician or users setting preferences
thresholds are updated based on how the clinician decided to program
Basically 2.0 offers three choices when to update thresholds:
Before each trial run (in segments of one, two or more minutes) Once
the initial baseline is complete. (Stretch of time monitoring prior
to actual training session). Or when you hit the “Y” key on your
computer manually. When choosing the manual update all of the auto
thresholds are applied at once.
What is "remote therapy training"?
training is an opportunity for clinicians to continue a training
regimen with specifically chosen clients while maintaining various
levels of protocol and locking control without being "personally"
present. 2.0 Clinical software offers clinician’s enabling
capability for remote therapy training.
Is there separate software or an additional charge to the
clinician to open the "remote therapy training" feature within the
2.0 Clinical Pro software?
No. 2.0 Clinical Pro is two
software packages in one, thus it will not be necessary for
clinicians to purchase the remote training feature separately. 2.0
Clinical Pro offers clinicians the opportunity to enable and create
client folders. A Clinician can now indirectly supervise home,
school or executive trainees via the internet, with a take home
disc, email or mail without daily or weekly office visits.
Why would I want to consider "remote training" or "remote
therapy" for my neurofeedback clients?
The reality today is
that not all neurofeedback clients are able or may choose to
continue coming into the clinician’s practice for training sessions.
Distance, financial challenges, time restraints, convenience and
scheduling are but a few common reasons for noncompliance . Remote
therapy training can become a win-win proposition for clinician and
client as well as an add-on profit center to a clinician’s present
How does the remote training aspect of 2.0 software actually
2.0 Clinical Pro software offers a built in "remote
therapy training" feature which offers the clinician an optional
clinical direction. 2.0 delivers clinicians the availability to
create specialized protocol folders for each remote trainee. There
is not a separate activation fee attached to initialize the remote
training aspect of the 2.0 Clinical Pro software. However, should
the clinician decide to remote train a client it will be necessary
to purchase time packages or an unlimited/restricted enabling key
for client use. The client can only train within the personally
designed folder created and enabled by the clinician. These folders
may be presented by floppy disc, CD, or emailed to the client.
After each session the client in turn can send to the clinician
(via email, floppy disc, or CD) the raw EEG and session summary
files with the press of a button. It’s easy, convenient and gives
the clinician immediate access to client results allowing for
changes on the spot by emailing back to the client updated protocol
changes or information via email! This direct supervision will most
likely improve and insure client compliance. Clinicians can be
assured of "untainted training" as clients will be motivated to
follow clinician orders and not experiment with protocols on their
Could the client own a BrainMaster and purchase "enabling time
packages" for remote training purposes?
Yes. Many clients
have been directed towards ownership of BrainMaster equipment by
their clinician. Many also rent or lease equipment from their
clinician. Clients would need to purchase time from their clinician
to open and activate the remote therapy training feature in 2.0
Basic. The remote "clinically supervised" training feature is a
separate feature available in the 2.0 Basic software package.
Trainees have various unlock choices available to them with 2.0
I presently own several BrainMaster modules, but intend to use
one or two in my office as clinical systems. What must I do with the
remaining systems if I intend to rent them for remote therapy
training purposes to my clients?
Most of your present 2-E
modules will need to be made 2.0 ready by the manufacturer.
Clinicians will need to send in the modules which need updating
regardless of use within the practice. However, you will only be
required to purchase 2.0 Clinical Pro software for the modules you
plan on using professionally within your practice. Clinicians owning
several modules are advised to return them intermittently. If
another upgrade is desired (i.e.: AUX/HEG or SuperInput Amp) this
might be an efficient time to upgrade. Obtain an RGA number from the
manufacturer prior to shipping.
What will I need to do to enable the modules I presently own
to work with the 2.0 Clinical Pro software for remote therapy
You will have, optionally available,
"unlock" and "enabling" choices with the 2.0 Clinical Pro software
for remote therapy training purposes. One choice will be to activate
each remote training module by purchasing "time packages" and doling
minutes (in 100 increments) to clients accordingly. This cost
effective approach offers clients the ability to "pay as they go".
Utilizing "time packages" works best when renting directly to
clients with shorter term neurofeedback needs. Utilizing time
packages may be the most cost effective approach for remote trainees
as well as the most cash sensitive approach for clinicians offering
this service. Time packages also offer the clinician the most
I have older software and equipment. Couldn’t I simply send my
client home with my existing system?
Yes, a qualified
clinician retains the right to choose various remote training
possibilities for their clients. However, the 2.0 software offers
clinicians locking and control advantages which protect the
clinician while assuring client compliance. Depending upon the
clinician’s intent of use and clients’ need, various levels of
professional control are available with 2.0. Professional liability
and responsibility is insured, protocol compliance as well as
training efficacy is available with BrainMasters’ 2.0 Pro software
package. Responsible clinicians demand responsible software in
today’s medical arena.
How do I begin a remote therapy training extension program in
Simply determine when clients are ready for
remote training; make available to clients BrainMaster devices,
unlock time keys and design the client internal action plan and
protocol folders for remote use. Monitoring each completed client
session or a series of sessions by reviewing incoming email files
keeps you abreast of progress. Make changes as required via email or
request the client to return to the office. Remote training is that
