After having a few sessions at the office I decided to rent a machine to train at home. I would do it again in a heart beat!"

What's included in the rental?

Both our rental plans include all materials required to train (including paste), access to online support forum moderated by expert trainers, access to regular check-ins with staff trainer via text, email, phone or Skype. You supply your own headphones.  We've learned everyone would prefer to use their own!vide headphones which you'd need for doing the training at home. Any headphones/earbuds will be fine to use for the training.

Please note, shipping costs are not included in monthly plan and billed separately. But we now offer a flat-rate shipping cost of $30. This is for one way only. Return shipment is the renter's responsibility.  You can also pick it up for free at any of our locations.

How long before my equipment arrives?

It usually takes 2-3 weeks to get your system to your door.  Our clients get to decide how long they rent and sometimes they extend beyond the recommended two months; therefore it's difficult for us to know an exact date of availability. 

Does neurofeedback work the same when training at home as the in-office sessions?  

Yes.  The technology is exactly the same.  The only difference is that the Professional unit has graphing capabilities but we don't use the quantitative data to decide the training protocol or to assess progress.

How do I know if it's working?   

We strongly recommend all renters fill out our Checklist of Concerns prior to starting and then again, after every 8 sessions.  For example, when clients see their rate of 10 for "Feel Anxious" turn into a 4 (10 being worst), they know the training is doing something good for them!

How difficult is it to learn how to run sessions?  

Learning how to use the equipment will take you approximately 10-15 minutes.  There are only 3 items you need to get familiar with: the computer, the amplifier, and the sensors.  There are only 3 buttons that you'll need to press on the computer.  And you can learn how to place the EEG sensors on your head from a 3-minute video.  You may get some EEG paste in your hair the first time, but it's water-soluable and comes out easily! 

What is the minimum and maximum amount of time for which I can rent the NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback Trainer? 

Minimum time to rent the neurofeedback equipment is one month. However, the best results is by renting for 2 months. Read a case study on the best uses of neurofeedback home system. After the first month's rental, one can choose to extend for another month or two weeks.

Why is two months rental recommended? 

The best training results occur when clients train for 2 - 4 months, with 2 days’ sleep between training sessions.  If you rent for 2 months, that would look like 2-3 sessions per week, for a total of 20-30 sessions.  Read our case study: How to Get Best Results in Neurofeedback Training

Is it difficult to learn where to place the EEG sensors on the head?  

In a word, no.  The sites on head C3 and C4 are actually large areas approximately half-way between the tip of the top of the ear and the crown of the head.  Anywhere in that area is considered a good location!  Trivia: did you know that the EEG sensors on the head pick up 95% of the electrical information on the entire head, and only 5% of that information is site specific?  In other words, don't worry, you have it in the right place!
