April 8, 2019
This 1-day workshop is for researchers and health professionals who want to learn how to use the latest “cutting edge” biofeedback technology. The morning session provides an overview of the key features of the BioGraph Infiniti 6.5 software and hardware. Software suites that can be showcased include the 360 suite, a complete package of physiological monitoring and self-regulation tools designed for health care professionals who want to incorporate psychophysiological methods into their practice, as well as the Neurofeedback, Physiology, Rehab-Muscle, Z-Score, HRV and Reaction Time suites.
During the afternoon session, participants will have a “hands-on” experience using Surface Electromyography (SEMG), Respiration, Temperature, Skin Conductance, Electroencephalography (EEG), Heart Rate and Electrocardiology (EKG) with audio and visual multimedia biofeedback screens.
(This workshop is NOT limited to current BioGraph Infiniti users only. Clinicians who have an interest in Biofeedback and in BioGraph Infiniti but do not currently possess our equipment are welcome to register.)
This course has been approved by BCIA to provide 7 hours of category A accredited continuing education for BCIA re-certification.
