An effective tool to help guide you in your journey into meditation practice.
Here's some important information on the Muse 2 Headband:
Meditation Like You’ve Never Imagined.
Muse 2 is a multi-sensor meditation device that provides real-time feedback on your brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and body movements to help you build a consistent meditation practice.
HOW IT WORKS
Muse Translates Your Brainwaves Into the Guiding Sounds of Weather
Muse is an EEG device widely used by neuroscience researchers around the world. It uses advanced signal processing to interpret your mental activity to help guide you. When your mind is calm and settled, you hear peaceful weather. Busy mind? As your focus drifts, you’ll hear stormy weather that cues you to bring your attention back to your breath.
REALTIME AUDIO FEEDBACK
Audio Guides Your Meditation Session
Muse connects to your mobile device via Bluetooth.
Once connected, simply start the Muse Meditation app, put on your headphones, and close your eyes. Once your session is complete, you can review your results and track your progress.
HOW WAS MUSE BUILT?
Deeper Insights Through Real-Time Feedback
Muse’s 7 finely calibrated EEG brain sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears plus 3 reference sensors – detect and measure the activity of your brain.
Muse 2 has added PPG and pulse oximetry breath and heart sensors that are located on the front, righthand side of the forehead. Gyroscope and accelerometer body sensors are found behind the ears.
REVIEWING YOUR RESULTS
Feedback Accelerates Learning
After each session, you’ll see how you did through a series of graphs and charts in the Muse meditation app.
Muse will show you how your brain, heart, breath, and body did from moment to moment through simple, easy to understand graphs and charts.
BUILDING THE HABIT
Track & Measure Your Progress
Use the Muse app to follow your progress over time and learn new things about your own mind, heart, breath, and body.
To help keep you motivated and improving, Muse also gives you points, goals, challenges and bonuses to strive for. With every session you earn points, and can adjust your goal to fit your needs.
WHAT IT MEASURES
Muse Tracks Your Brain Signals
Muse is a brain fitness tool that measures brain signals much like a heart rate monitor senses your heartbeat.
Muse’s 7 finely calibrated sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears plus 3 reference sensors – detect and measure the activity of your brain.
MEASURING BRAIN ACTIVITY
Transforming Brain Signals Into Real-time Feedback
Muse detects a range of brain electrical activity and transforms it into easily understandable experiences. The Muse app transforms raw brain signals into many different components - noise, oscillations, non-periodic characteristics, and transient and event-related brain events. Signal processing and machine learning techniques are applied to the brain signal components to control the experience in real time.
If you are interested in recording, visualizing, and streaming EEG and movement sensor data with Muse - from raw data and band powers to head movement and rotation - the Muse headband can be used in combination with Muse Direct for iOS. Muse Direct can be used for applications like neurofeedback, research, art installations, education, and more!
DO MORE WITH YOUR MIND
Train Your Brain
Muse is a state-of-the-art EEG system that uses advanced signal processing algorithms to train beginner and intermediate meditators at controlling their focus. Muse detects a range of brain electrical activity and transforms it into easily understandable experiences.
The Muse app decomposes raw brainwave signals into their component oscillations, non-periodic characteristics, transient brain events, and noise, and uses techniques developed through machine learning to make the experience responsive, in real time.
I L O V E my Muse. It's a fantastic product, and I love using it in my meditation practice. Stay tuned for my 2 week session post to see how it went!
