The new Brainlink Dual device explained
The new Brainlink Dual device is worn as a headband by users and it is designed to assist users who have sleep apnea, increase the focus in users who suffer from ADHD symptoms, and also improve meditation practice for regular users. The device also claims to aid with stress management as well as impulse control symptoms. The app uses neuro-gaming techniques that improve focus and impulse control analysis feedback on the performance of brain enhancement.
The device is another product in the lineup with other popular HMDs such as Muse 2 OR Emotiv that users use for brain stimulation and meditation practice. These devices are designed to track brain’s EEG signals.
EEG stands for “electroencephalography” which is an electrophysiological process to record the electrical activity of the brain. EEG measures changes in the electrical activity of the brain produced. Voltage changes come from ionic current within and between some brain cells called neurons.

Haptic feedback is used to provide communication to users.
