The position of your headband is very important as it detects your brainwaves, which determines your sleep stages. Bad positioning of your headband can lead to inaccurate results. To prevent this please follow the tips provided below.

  • Position the headband securely on your head making sure the electrodes find their way through your hair to your skin.
  • If you feel that your headband is too loose you may use a shorter size of adjuster. Here is how to do it Adjust headband size
  • Use the headband with clean hair and a fresh clean face, please note that if you need to apply a cream for medical reasons, avoid the areas that will be in direct contact with the headband (temples, forehead) as much as possible. In addition, we ask that you also avoid oils in your hair around the back sensors.
  • Clean the sensors of your Band every 10 nights with a disinfectant wipe (70% isopropyl alcohol- used to disinfect skin or clean medical equipment).

Once you have checked all the tips above, you can now verify good positioning with LIVE EEG. Here is how to perform this action Check good positioning with LIVE EEG.
