About

Thought Waves is the South African agent for Thought Technology, the world's leading biofeedback and psychophysiological instrument manufacturer. Our products include clinical grade and portable instrumentation from 1-40 channels, coupled with a wide range of software, educational programs and biofeedback supplies.

Our biofeedback and neurofeedback systems are recognized as the standard of excellence by psychologists, social workers, physiotherapists and researchers throughout the world. Self-regulation therapy with biofeedback offers the practitioner a non-invasive method of addressing stress-reduction, attention-deficit disorder, PTSD, anxiety and many other mind-body imbalances.


General Biofeedback Solution

Thought Technology's physiological biofeedback systems provide the optimal clinical tools for stress assessments, relaxation training and teaching self regulation, etc. Whatever your needs are, we have a system for you:

  • A full range of precise sensing devices.
  • Multimodality systems combining 2, 5, 8 or 10 channels.
  • Powerful software for recording, reviewing and reporting.
  • Clinical systems or home trainers.

The General Biofeedback Solution will enable you to do the following types of biofeedback:

  • Surface EMG: 1 or 2 channels of electromyography, for learning relaxation and stress control, helping teach awareness of head, neck and low back muscle tension, or training voluntary relaxation of specific muscle groups.
  • Skin Conductance: help develop an awareness of learned stress responses and teach basic self-regulation skills.
  • Temperature: train for increasing peripheral temperature and controlling unconscious stress responses.
  • Respiration: 1 or 2 channels of respiration, for abdominal and (optionally) thoracic breathing training. Slow deep abdominal breathing helps with relaxation and can be used for lowering the heart rate.
  • HRV: Heart rate variability training screens monitor respiration and heart rate, using a blood volume pulse (BVP) or an EKG sensor, and are useful for respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) training or to expand the adaptive range of the cardiovascular system (by increasing variability).
  • Multi-modality and Physiological profiling (need ProComp Infiniti encoder and multiple sensors).
  • Assessment Scripts for Stress Assessment, and Pre- or Post-Training Baseline Assessment (need ProComp Infiniti encoder and multiple sensors).

Neurofeedback Solution

Thought Technology is redefining EEG based biofeedback with systems that can take your practice into new realms of neurological self-regulation.

Our EEG systems are suited to all levels of interest, as they include:

  • Single or two-channel EEG systems with the capability of expanding to 4 or 6 channels.
  • Standard neurofeedback protocols with connectivity and z score training (coherence, phase, asymmetry, etc.).
  • Tools for exploring slow cortical potentials, evoked potentials and reaction time.
  • Added capability of combining EEG with physiological biofeedback.

Physical Rehabilitation Solution

MyoTrac Infiniti & MyoTrac3 Series

Our 2 channel devices are used as an essential part of many therapeutic treatments and clinical assessment protocols for incontinence and muscle rehabilitation.

They allow you to measure high-resolution surface electromyography (SEMG). MyoTrac Infiniti performs electrical stimulation (NMES) in a large number of configurations.

The MyoTrac Infiniti stands apart from the competition by also combining these two modalities in various waysincluding, among others, SEMG-triggered stimulation (ETS).


ProComp/FlexComp Infiniti Series

ProComp5, ProComp Infiniti and FlexComp Infiniti have recently been added to Thought Technology's physical rehabilitation product line.

These devices can measure and provide biofeedbacktraining on:

  • Surface Electromyography (SEMG)
  • Range of Motion (ROM)
  • Muscle Testing
  • Algometry
  • Respiration
  • Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
  • Skin Conductance and Peripheral Temperature.
