Biofeedback for occupational therapy
Biofeedback can be a successful tool for muscle rehab to improve muscle functioning. Muscle (EMG) feedback can also give insight in posture and gait in general. Biofeedback enables a therapist to visualize multiple physiological parameters and using it as feedback for their clients.
By using these physiological signals as feedback, a client gains insight in their physiology, starts to understand the relationship between body and mind and in the process creates techniques and eventually changes behavior to restore physiological balance and improve health. Biofeedback can be a useful addition to therapies for conditions like chronic pain, headaches or migraines.
Neurofeedback for occupational therapy
Neurofeedback enables occupational therapists to measure and train brain performance. Neurofeedback training helps a client to gain insights in EEG, thereby providing a tool to improve attention and focus.
By giving insights in the client's own brain waves they learn to understand their complaints better. Neurofeedback can be beneficial for attention-related disorders like ADHD.
The added value of biofeedback and neurofeedback
- Measure and train muscle tension in movement, gait or posture
- Showing dysfunctional patterns, aiding in creating functional movement patterns
- Psychophysiological stress profiling, showing stress responses and identifying triggers
- Assessment and training tool in stress and pain management
- Client specific audiovisual feedback types
- Motivates clients to take a more active role in their personal health care
- Visualize physiological activity and processes of the mind-body interface
