I B V A : Interactive Brainwave Visual Analyser
The IBVA / Brain Duino / Brainmachines are all super highly sensitive EEG monitors communicating via bluetooth that fit inside your pocket. Original model designed over 30 years ago in Japan, the same team still develop the software and redesign the hardware, made in small quantities in the USA and Europe. They ship in a protective aluminium carry case with either the 3 electrode strip sensor, or the 5 electrode cable version, with 50 small pre-gelled, sealed electrodes.

All BrainMachines now use new sensors that can connect to different electrodes, capable of measurement through hair (with the addition of TENS gel and washable & adhesive electrodes). You can begin with Pre-frontal monitoring which is the same as original IBVA systems using pre-gelled disposable electrodes, or you simply adhere the other electrodes anywhere, allowing more dynamic 10:20 EEG monitoring, via hair or no hair regions.
2 channel IBVA BrainMachine
A 2 2 channel sensor with 3 electrodes (ear clip reference) or 5 electrodes (mastoid reference) for any 10-20 locations eg: O1 and O2 Occipitals or Frontals Fp1 and Fp2. This 2 channel EEG system is supplied with the latest full IBVA5 Mac software.*
The 5 electrode sensor is available by special request taking 2-3 weeks to ship.
4 channel IBVA BrainMachine
If you require a new EEG system for monitoring 4 channels of one brain, and you can also to use it to record 2 channels each of 2 persons, then you need the ”4 channel” IBVA Brainmachine. So whilst connected simultaneously and analysed in realtime (on the same computer) – an additional interface cable is required. - email email@example.com for quotes and other requirements.
The standard EEG sensor commonly used is the IBVA 3 electrode grey/blue strip, easy to apply in one piece across the forehead with a small earclip for reference. For an additional £65 the 5 electrode on 1 metre cable pictured here can be ordered, additional capabilities are it allows 2 channels that are not so close together to be monitored, the black electrode placed on the mastoid, is used as reference.
New design sensor cable allows ‘free placement’ of the electrodes, commonly we monitor the Frontals (above each eye) for decision making or the Occipitals above the brainstem on the back of the neck for the visual processing region of the brain. Pre-gelled electrodes are best for bare skin on the forehead, and the washable electrode discs with TENS gel and a medical skin preparation cream are needed for sites where hair is present to adhere and get a good signal, these are supplied in a kit for an additional £80.
* A download of the full IBVA5 software is available at an extra cost upon request for MacBook Air users. IBVA5 also contains the Sound programmers audio unit plugins for interactive sound and movie controls as well as neurofeedback protocols.
A one hour sharing software screens Skype lesson for setup is also included
