Neurofeedback Remote or Home Training
Before neurofeedback home training can be undertaken, it must be understood that
to enable effective neurofeedback training at home and restoring your brain health,
a certain amount of commitment and ownership to undertake the clinical neurofeedback
training at home is the responsibility of the client.
It must be recognised that is not a responsible action or a simple matter of providing
you with medical home training neurofeedback equipment without supervision, as you
are not clinically trained to undertake neurofeedback training, you will be provided
with support and supervision.
It is 121 Neurofeedback Services & Brainhealth responsibility to provide you with
appropriate home training neurofeedback medical equipment for hire, designed clinical
neurofeedback protocols, training, remote supervision, support and appropriate documentation
to enable effective and controlled neurofeedback Remote or Home Training.

First of all a clinical and practical assessment is made with you in the clinic to
find out if home training is an option for you.
If the assessment deems that Remote or Home Training is an option then a further
visit to the clinic by you is required to provide you with the home training medical
equipment, a demonstration or dry run, and the opportunity to discuss any issues
related to your case. During your visit to the clinic it is important to ensure that
review time frames are understood and agreed. The interval between future reviews
will vary depending on your case and progress.
Subsequently when your Remote or Home Training software is successfully installed
on your PC and your Remote or Home Training neurofeedback equipment is working, then
your personal clinically designed neurofeedback protocols will be dispatched to you
along with the supporting documentation and remote system instructions via e-mail
or another type of secure media transport.
Generally speaking you should be able to install the software and be up and running
very quickly if you are PC literate, in the unlikely event you experience problems
and run into difficulties that can not be resolved remotely a home visit can be arrange
to provide on site support if required.
How is Remote or Home Training Managed?
Supporting documentation for Remote or Home Training is normally e-mailed directly
to the client. All Remote or Home Training clinically designed protocols are client
specific and are not to be used by anybody else. If you adopt any other Remote or
Home Training packages from another supplier do not accept generalised protocols
as they may not be appropriately designed for you.
The Brainhealth and 121 Neurofeedback Services Remote or Home Training system is
managed remotely via e-mail and client visits to the clinic. The system allows remote
management, reporting of progress and remote protocol adjustment.
It is extremely important not to over train and you must follow your clinically directed
training plan as directed. The system time dates your progress reports down to the
last second so close monitoring is possible.
- A face to face clinical review with you in the clinic must be undertaken from time
to time as agreed during setting up your training plan. The frequency of reviews
will be adjusted to take into account your progress.
- Remember commitment is the key to success.
- Remote or Home Training requires a lot of effort on your part and a lot of back office
work by Brainhealth and 121 Neurofeedback Services. To enable you to succeed, we
will support you as much as possible to ensure success. However as with everything
it is not worth the effort if you will not be committed or find that you are unable
to undertake the Remote or Home Training.
- Finally, do not suffer in silence, or be embarrassed, if you find that you can not
commit once you have started. It is best to give in and return to regular attendance
in the clinic for your personal neurofeedback training.
