Although not VR, a very useful addition to any wellbeing programme is the Muse headset, this is an EEG (electroencephalography) headset that measures brain activity. This unique piece of equipment connects to a mobile device or tablet and gives instant neurofeedback during its own guided meditations. This instant neurofeedback then allows users to quickly realise when their mind is wandering and refocus.
We have found this to be incredibly powerful and speeds up the process of learning these “meta cognitive” skills, allowing the practitioner to quickly spot when they drift and refocus more quickly in their day to day roles. Helping them develop their concentration and focus throughout their day.
Muse headsets can also be linked to a dashboard to monitor progress, so additional support can be offered where required and provided remotely to users of the muse headset. This allows for extra targetted coaching for those who are in need of additional guidance in their mindfulness meditation practice.
We also hire the Muse headsets and connected Apples devices separately, independent of any wellbeing programmes, please contact us for details.
