How does Brucker-Biofeedback work?

The Brucker-Biofeedback method allows us to visualise what’s happening to neuromuscular signals on a computer screen. Electrodes are placed onto the respective muscles which then pick up th tiny neuromuscular signals of movements that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. With the help of a specially developed computer system the signals can then be transformed and instantly displayed on a computer screen in the form of graphs.

 

During each trial, the brain registers the relevant information and processes it accordingly. Thanks to the feedback, we can try to induce specific body movements which were previously considered impossible. In this way, patients learn progressively how to increase their own neuromuscular signals in order to improve their control and coordination of particular movements. Improved control over neuromuscular signals also means fewer unintentional spastic movements.
