Biofeedback



What's BIOfeedback?

Here is a simplified definition:

"The detection of information about a person's Biological functions, (such as heart rate, breathing rate, skin temperature, and amount of muscle tension), picked up by surface electrodes (sensors) and electronically amplified to provide "feedback" (usually an audio-tone and/or a visual read-out) to the patient, about those functions."

Biofeedback training uses the information that has been monitored from the sensors attached to a muscle on the skin's surface, or to the skin only for thermal or other readings. With the help of a trained Clinician, the patient can learn how to make voluntary changes in those biological functions and bring them under patient control.
