Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS)
What means Lens?
Lens is a special type of neurofeedback (NFB). This therapy enables self-regulation of the central nervous system, an increase in resilience and thus an improvement in well-being. It gives the brain feedback in the form of impulses based on the measured brain activity. The objectives of lens therapy are the same as for other NFB treatments: To give the brain more flexibility and to increase its functionality.
What can Lens be used for?
The areas of operation of Lens are disease patterns that require NFB treatment.
What is the difference between “Lens” and classic NFB therapy?
In NFB therapy e.g. Brain activity is measured using the Othmer method or Mindfield and visibly reported back to the patient using various animations on a screen, so that they can correct and optimize brain function. In Lens therapy, however, very short impulses are delivered taking brain function and the clinical picture into account. Lens is no electroshock therapy, though.
Classic NFB therapies can be carried out frequently and intensively up to twice a day. However, we recommend at least one or two Lens sessions a week at the beginning.
At NFB, patient collaboration as in concentration is required for a period of about 30 minutes, whereas lens therapy does not require patient cooperation during the session and the treatment units are much shorter.
How is Lens done?
We attach two electrodes to both ears and the third electrode in different places on the scalp. Pulse waves are added to the selected area of the brain for a very short time via this electrode.
Lens was developed in the USA. We are always looking for the best therapy options to improve our patient’s health. We are proud to be one of the first in Germany to offer Lens.
