Biofeedback is a therapeutic training technique used to enhance mind-body control. By providing subjects with external audio or visual feedback of subtle nervous signals that reach the muscles, using electrodes to sense the signals, biofeedback provides a means for identifying, strengthening, and using these signals. Through this technology, biofeedback lets subjects know when they are changing their physical responses – such as nerve signal strength, body temperature, blood pressure, or heart rate – in desired directions. This information can be used to teach individuals to better control their body.
Level Eleven utilizes biofeedback to assist individuals with limited movement to regain or improve functional usage of motor nerve cells in the brain, brain stem, and spinal cord, which can lead to improved use of disabled limbs.
