First Wearable Neurofeedback Device Hits the PGA Tour
FocusBand™ Brain-Trains Golfers to Get into the ‘Zone’
Rancho Santa Fe, CA – September 28, 2015 – According to Own My Swing Founder/CEO Howard Reisman, “For the first time we are able to measure what sports psychologists, like Dr. Bob Rotella and Dr. Gio Valianti, having been preaching for years with regard to getting into the ‘zone’. Under pressure we have so many emotions that we must control.” FocusBand™ is ground breaking wireless EEG (electroencephalogram) technology which teaches you to shift from left brain conscious control to right brain non-conscious or the Zone or what the Japanese call ‘Mushin’.
According to Jason Goldsmith, PGA Tour Performance Coach. “FocusBand™ is a total game changer! It is the first wearable active neurofeedback device on PGA Tour and is currently being utilized by elite players to help the get into the ‘Mushin’ on command.”(http://www.ownmyswing.com/iFocusband.php)
“To perform to your potential in golf,” says Goldsmith, “research has shown that being able to switch to and execute in the right brain gives you a distinct advantage. The brain is calm and able to make more appropriate decisions in a shorter period of time.”
“While the brain is very much interconnected we refer to left and right brain for convenience and simplicity.” explains Graham Boulton, FocusBand™ co-inventor, “When you think about the left brain’s ability to command up to 40 sequential instructions per second it sounds like a fine way to control your golf swing. That is until you understand that your right brain has the ability to handle up to 11 million instructions per second in non-sequential fashion! “
The FocusBand™ is a wearable headband with three sensors that actually measures brain activity. The Neoprene headset and the woven sensors are perspiration tolerant and the measured data is displayed on a mobile device for effortless brain training to a calmer state of mind through audio and visual feedback. This is Neurofeedback – the training of the brain.
“I have personally used FocusBand for the past year”, says Own My Swing founder Reisman – “you will be amazed at the ability to narrow your targeting and to quiet the conscious mind in order execute that shot under pressure, whether it be to win the club championship or a PGA Tour event!” Reisman explained.
