Products for Professionals / BrainDryvr™ Cascade
The BRAINDRYVR CASCADE™ is a stand-alone unit designed to be used with any EEG feedback system. The unit is a sound operated gate that permits the control of electrically operated devices contingent on any EEG event that the feedback system allows. The BRAINDRYVR CASCADE™ is a dual channel unit with each channel independently adjustable. Because the units are cascadable (multiple units can be controlled by the same EEG event) the therapist can design highly sophisticated multiple contingency feedback protocols. The super-sensitive contingency control, unique to this SOUNDHEALTH product, permits qualitative differences in EEG events to have different contingencies. For example, one can have a light onset as soon as the brainwave band amplitude exceeds threshold and an electric train start running if the amplitude exceeds threshold for a longer period of time. For suppression protocols, one could program light stimulation onset contingent on brief threshold crossings but onset of the OMNI™ harmonic if the amplitude remains above threshold for a longer period of time.
Other features of the BRAINDRYVR CASCADE™ offer the therapist many options for unique protocol design. The sound trigger coming from the EEG feedback system has a direct output which can be used to provide the client with direct EEG feedback when a threshold is satisfied but some other stimulus condition if the threshold is not satisfied or as the trigger for additional cascaded braindriving units. The delay function of the BRAINDRYVR CASCADE™ permits control of stimulus duration so that the therapist can control the time the stimulus remains on after the triggering event.
Three-way switching allows the therapist to turn a stimulus on or off with a triggering event as well as to have the BRAINDRYVR CASCADE™ in standby mode. The EEG feedback triggering sound can be presented to the client with the BRAINDRYVR CASCADE™ in standby mode. “GO” on the selector switch means the stimulus will be presented when the reward sound is present. “STOP” on the selector switch indicates that the stimulus will be presented when the reward sound is off.

We have been using your Attention CD in the Yonkers School District since Feb, of 1998. We have had outstanding results using the tape and have noticed a significant reduction in aberrant behavior in the children using the CD. In each of the 3 sch...
In experimenting with Dr. Swingle's Attention CD, I discovered that the sound produced a calming effect for me. I was particularly pleased with the impact it had for reading as it definitely increased my concentration and ultimately my comprehension.
...In all probability you have forgotten my visits with you approximately ten years ago when I was referred to you by A.K. However, the reason I am writing you is to see if it would be possible to obtain a copy of the relaxation CD you gave me whe...
I just want to let you know that I am fine. I have had very few headaches. I am using my relaxation CD and the exercises you gave me. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me. It is a miracle to be headache and fiourinal free! Since...

Our problem was that we originally only ordered two Attention CDs. The two teachers who had the most immediate and dramatic results with their students would not loan their CDs for the rest of the staff. When I listen to the CD, it appears to have...

My client made more progress after one use of (Sweep™) than in weeks (of regular EMDR therapy).

My patients prefer Sweep 3 to 1 over the EMDR stimulator.

I'm fairly jaded by 'gimmicks' and not easily impressed. Spectra however is really special and very impressive. Loved the instant meditative mental state that was stimulated. ...just the thing [that] alcohol treatment centres need. Unless there's ...
