A Comparison of BrainCore and Neuroinfiniti
BrainCore and Neuroinfiniti are both excellent system, however they have different purposes. Comparing these
systems is almost like comparing apples to oranges.
NEUROINFINITI
The Neuroinfiniti is basically a system that is designed to educate chiropractic patients about the effect of the
chiropractic adjustment on the nervous system. It is a patient education tool. In this respect, the Neuroinfiniti is
a lot like a surface EMG, x-ray, postural analysis, or any other device that can help you demonstrate pre and post
adjustment effects on the body. The Neuroinfiniti measures the stress response by measuring different
physiological variables including brainwaves, heart rate, muscle tension, finger temperature, and galvanic skin
response. These dimensions are measured at the beginning of the chiropractic care plan and at every reevaluation. A comparison of these measurements demonstrates the effect of the adjustment on the nervous
system. So, if you are in the market for another education tool, then this is the right choice for you.
BRAINCORE
BrainCore on the other hand is a state of the art biofeedback / neurofeedback system that utilizes traditional
neurofeedback procedures to help correct dysregulated brainwave patterns. Dysregulated brain wave patterns
have been linked to many neurological conditions such as ADHD, Insomnia, Migraine, Tension Headache, Autism /
Asperger’s, TBI, PTSD, and many others. BrainCore is not designed to be a chiropractic patient education tool but
rather it is designed to be a treatment adjunct to your chiropractic practice. BrainCore utilizes Quantitative
Electroencephalogram or QEEG brain map to evaluate brainwave patterns. The QEEG is considered to be the gold
standard for brain wave analysis by the BCIA and the ISNR. These two organizations are the leading authorities in
the field of neurofeedback. Even though the Neuroinfiniti does measure brain wave patterns, it is not a QEEG
based evaluation and therefore is not a gold standard analysis.
Based on the QEEG brain map, custom neurofeedback protocols are prescribed for the patient. These protocols
are designed to train specific brainwave magnitudes in real time, and teach the patient how to gain voluntary
control over their brainwave patterns. Here is how it works - Individuals are hooked up to a computer using wires
and sensors, and the computer records their brainwave activity information about these brainwaves is monitored
by the software. The software automatically detects when the brainwaves are properly ordered and it feeds that
information back to the patient. This feedback appears in the form of a game, movie, or sound which signals the
patient that the brainwaves are becoming more ordered. For example, the patient may be watching a movie that
gets bright and loud when the correct brainwave pattern is being produces, and gets dark and low when the
pattern is dysregulated. Over 10 to 20 sessions the patient’s brain learns how to gain voluntary control of the
pattern. Over 40 years of research has demonstrated that correcting brain wave patterns results in the alleviation
of many neurological conditions such as ADHD, Insomnia, Migraine, Tension Headache, Autism / Asperger’s, TBI,
PTSD, and many others.
SUMMARY
The Neuroinfiniti is not a traditional biofeedback / neurofeedback system in that it does not utilize real time
feedback to train the individual to directly affect a particular physiological variable such as brainwaves. Even
though Neuroinfiniti measures brain waves, it does not provide a QEEG brain map which is the gold standard in
neurofeedback. Neuroinfiniti is a patient education tool designed to demonstrate the effect of the chiropractic
adjustment on the nervous system.
BrainCore is a traditional QEEG brain map based neurofeedback system that is designed to teach individuals how
to correct brain wave patterns that may be associated with many neurological conditions. There is over 40 years
of research substantiating the efficacy of this procedure.
Implementing BrainCore does not change your chiropractic script or how you practice Chiropractic. Implementing
Neuroinfiniti may affect the way you explain Chiropractic and how you practice Chiropractic with your patients.
