Find your Focus with Neuphony – A Wearable EEG Device
Now you can use different techniques of mindfulness without Meditation Headband. Neupony is a headband similar to a Brain EEG device, which measures your brain waves and informs you when you are off track. When you enter deep meditative states, your brain develops different brain wave frequencies, like Alpha, Beta, Theta, Gamma, and Delta. During meditation, the brain tends to go into Theta wave frequency. This headband lets you know the state of mind you are in and directs you to the desired frequency throughout the entire process.
