WaveRider is a Windows-based physiological monitor that collects
brainwaves and other biological signals. Musical feedback and
visual displays change in response to variations in the signals.
Signals are analyzed graphically for easy comprehension. Home
and professional users learn and teach how to control mental
WaveRider comes with many popular pre-programed
protocols (see below) ready for
immediate use. Home users start with these protocols and easily
modify them for their specific needs.
Professional users monitor, record, and analyze
biological signals. Complex custom protocols are quickly
developed with point-and-click controls. Multiple feedback
indicators can be tailored to respond to complex criteria.
Processed data may be exported for further analysis off-line.
Live raw and processed data may be exported for real-time
interaction with user developed applications.
WaveRider consists of electrodes, computer
hardware, and computer software. Electrodes that collect
biological signals are affixed to the body. WaveRider hardware
transmits the signals to a computer through a serial cable. WaveWare,
the WaveRider Windows-based software, processes the signals for
analysis, display, and feedback.
The WaveRider hardware has a single dedicated
channel for reading skin resistance (GSR) and several
multipurpose channels. Multipurpose low-noise channels read
signals from the brain, heart, and muscles. Each multipurpose
channel may be individually configured to collect the required
type of biological signal. WaveRider hardware comes in two
