I am a LENS neurofeedback practitioner and psychologist.
I have shown the Bellabee to 7 clients. Every one of them had a very quick positive response. Two of them had reductions in headache/migraine.
The client with the least response did say it was making her sleepy. She has trouble with sleep at night and is very active and busy to avoid sleep during the day. While this is not a substitute for permanent recovery from TBI it looks like it can address headaches, pain, relaxation and concentration issues while being used.
6 clients are purchasing the device after about 10 minutes of sampling its effect. One client could describe a distinct difference in each frequency from 16 to 6 Hz.
I am looking forward to observing heart rate variability changes in one client who is training with Heartmath. I will report my observations.
Imagine, all this knowledge, in the future supported with Bellabee's therapies as a homework therapy after all NFB, brain peak performance sessions.
And this is how it needs to be in the future. More patients, more affordable to clients, and still the same profit for practice. Imagine NFB become the middle man between patients and neuropsychologists, psychologists, sports trainers, coaches, special needs teachers, ADHD, Autism specialists.
Neurofeedback specialists, brain mapping experts, QEEG, they have all the knowledge about any mental health state (brain oscillation abnormalities), whether this is insomnia, anxiety, ADHD, Autism or any other. They will sooner or later start making individual programs to use Bellabee. As the most affordable and daily available neuromodulation tool.
Helping the NFB industry to achieve full potential and most importantly, quicker, and affordable therapies to patients.
Show brain activity in real time, demonstrate neuroplasticity, make the world a better place. What Apple did for computing by putting a roomful of equipment on the desktop, we are doing for the science of the brain.
I have found the Bellabee helpful with sleep. I don't think of the effect as a simple "linear" result, i.e., either reinforcing or inhibiting. It is introducing the possibility for change, and by intermittently introducing a frequency, it temporarily disrupts it, but the aftereffect can be improved flexibility. Also, our studies have shown that the effect is not limited to the area beneath the stimulator, it can affect other parts of the brain.
The brain works as a whole, meaning the coil gives a pulse, but the brain uses it across all areas. So if I pulse 10Hz at the back, the alpha is stimulated across the entire brain. It is up to you to see what are the brain oscillation abnormalities, after that you using Bellabee simply by generating frequencies you want your brains run on, rewire them.
