THE BRAIN TRAINING COMPANY
All results on this site have been achieved with the use of Brainwave I computerized electronic equipment.
Brainwave I Optical Acoustical System
Flashing lights and rhythmic sounds definitely affect & effect the brain PERMANENTLY!
To use light & sound without an EEG is totally irresponsible.
The damage done to a brain by the wrong program of flashing lights and rhythmic (or non- rhythmic sounds) can be permanent (unless diagnosed by an expert EEG analyst and rebalanced by a Brainwave I type system).
To ensure safety many factors are involved: frequency, intensity, brightness, colour, sequencing, coordination with sound and the ratio of on and off periods.
All of these and many more variables were tested extensively for 2 years (1991-93) before the lights actually worked, i.e. had a lasting and beneficial effect.
And, equally as important, to be proven to be absolutely safe even for use on infants.
The Brainwave I light and sound system is the only safe system manufactured worldwide and is the only system that does not require a "health warning". There are no possible negative side effects.
Seven Exclusive Features (no other units on the market with these features).
The maximum frequency is only 15 Hz (cycles/second). Epilepsy can be triggered at 30 40 Hz. Other light/sound equipment can be programmed to 60 180 Hz. (about the same as a modern disco with laser strobe lights). As human thought only requires 14 Hz maximum, the Brainwave I was designed to be totally safe. It will not create "psychedelic trips" like other systems. It will, however, train the brain for balance in alpha/theta, i.e., 3 10 Hz.
The color spectrum visible to the human eye ranges from +/- 400 nm blue through the rainbow to +/- 800 nm red. Blue light has little or no lasting effect. Red creates a "whiplash" reverse negative effect. White light has no effect. The only color that can create a lasting effect is pure gold the color of the center of a candle flame.
To do this requires manufacturing LEDs of gallium, platinum and arsinide on a gallium-platinum backing. This is expensive and Brainwave I is the only equipment in the world with this color frequency.
Other systems have 2 to 8 LEDs. The difference between 8 LEDs and 16 LEDs is 64 times more effect with the same power. For example, tap the palm of your hand with the point of a pencil and then with the eraser. The smaller and more numerous the points of light, the more effective the training. To power 16 LEDs requires 18 wires and a computer type circuit board with about the same power as the first PCs.
The security of the RO (read only) chip ensures that the maximum frequency cannot be exceeded and that any frequency cannot be exceeded and that any frequency selected from 1 to 14 Hz will be perfectly accurate. Frequencies can vary on other equipment due to battery drain and programming errors in manufacturing. (A recent test of a $ 300 Orion set at 1 Hz was actually flashing at 6 Hz 6 times too fast and at 14 was flashing at 8.4 Hz easy to get epilepsy). (If you have light/sound equipment, set it to 1 Hz and count the flashes. You should get 30 in 60 seconds let us know the results).
The lenses (brightness of the 16 LEDs combined are less than a flame from a small paper match. Bright lights on other equipment will create psychedelic effects and no training. The safe Brainwave I lights do not create psychedelic effects and do enable training.
A single cycle requires an "on" period and an "off" period. For brain training there must be equal. This is perfect in the Brainwave I system. For psychedelic and disco effects, the reverse is true. A longer flash and shorter period of dark or vice versa, i.e., "strobe" effect. This is how other equipment operates.
The only adjustable lights on the market. Vertical/horizontal and tilt from 0 degrees to 180 degrees for use while reading or creating.
Additional features: Software updates via E-mail. Unlimited program options all other light/sound programs can be easily run on the system with better accuracy and a screen display. Research options include light/sound frequencies, time in seconds and 10 frequency change methods.
The absolute safety of the system is guaranteed both by the software and the read only chip(ROM) in the circuit board of the lights. What you see on the screen is what you get with the lights and the sounds. A moving arrow tells you where you are at all times during a program.
The vertical scale on the left is marked from 0 to 15Hz. This is the number of light pulses per minute. For example: with the frequency set at 1Hz for one minute the lights would flash on 30 times and have 30 equal periods of off. A total of 60 pulses in 60 seconds. Please use this test if you have L/S equipment from another supplier and send us the result. We have seen test results ranging from 1Hz to 10 Hz. This means that when that equipment is set to alpha at 7Hz one could be receiving 7 to 70Hz. All equipment tested can be set to exceed 40Hz, therefore a health warning is required. Not so with Brainwave I.
Please note the maximum light pulse rate is 15Hz far below the 40+Hz needed to trigger epilepsy or the 100+Hz at disco laser light shows.
The horizontal scale is time and can be zoomed from seconds to hours for each screen display.
The colours of each segment signify the coordination of the lights and sounds.
Blue: All equal light and sound at the same time in both eyes and both ears.
Red: Left-Right balance - light and sound alternating from left eye/left ear to right eye/right ear.
Green: Front-Rear balance - light and sound alternating from left eye/right eye/ to left ear/right ear.
Violet: Diagonal balance - light and sound alternating from left eye/right ear to right eye/left ear.
The shapes in the lower left indicate the type of change desired when moving from one frequency to another. There are 10 possibilities.
Total programmability. One can easily, in a few minutes, duplicate any light/sound program being researched or used worldwide. This is the ultimate word processor and spreadsheet program for the brain.
Pre set programsfor standard usage are pre-programmed. Additional programs are added to the menu for each clients specific requirements.
Free program upgrades are issued when new developments occur. For example; a few years ago a university student was using the system for reading and learning improvement when he discovered that an alternating 1 Hz wave stopped his back pain. It was tested immediately in the main office it worked. An e-mail with the new program can now be sent to registered users.
