Recently, the FDA has recommended that prescribing doctors and pharmaceutical companies begin reducing the doses of Ambien and two other sleep medications by half. Nine million Americans take sleeping pills on a regular basis and the thought of not getting their normal dose raises some legitimate fears.
The latest conundrum to come to light in the field of brainwave therapy is the difference between office-based neurofeedback and the latest advances in tele-neurofeedback training conducted live over the Internet.
Recent studies using at home tele-neurofeedback for insomnia showed considerable improvement over controlled test subjects given only sham training. What was significant is that all subjects were trained “at-home”, while being supervised live by a certified neurofeedback technician. This was done from a remote practice in real-time, over a simple wifi connection in the subjects home. Skype audio and video feeds provided accurate sensor hookups and the techs controlled the sessions with remote support software. All communication was encrypted for patient privacy.
