Products and Applications

Q:  What is the difference between MindWave and MindWave Mobile?  Do they measure the same type of brainwaves?

A:  Both our MindWave and MindWave Mobile headsets utilize the same hardware and read the same EEG signals.  The MindWave headset will require a computer with a USB port to plug in the included RF receiver.  On the other hand, our MindWave Mobile headset utilizes Bluetooth for connectivity. This feature will allow the headset to connect directly to your Bluetooth enabled computer, phone or tablet running Windows, Android or iOS. 

Q:  Does the MindWave headset read RAW brainwave data? 

A:  Yes.  Our technology is remarkable in how well our headsets read raw brainwave data.  It has been compared with higher priced EEG devices such as the BioPac and found to be comparable.
