Noumic, Two Way Biofeedback Device


Our Noumic Device invention is capable of providing two types of bio-information.

  1. It can work as a very sensitive Skin Conductivity Monitor. Devices with this function are known as, Galvanic Skin Response GSR Monitors, or Electro-dermal Activity EDA Monitors.

  2. It can work as a very sensitive Hand Tension Monitor. Not for developing high strength in the hands, but for developing a high degree of performance and sensitivity in their movement.

Biofeedback Device

Body information indicated by the Device is affected, or responds, when practicing certain self development exercises. In other words the Device provides 'feedback' information.

Therefore the Noumic Device can be used as a self-training tool. By the bio-feedback principle, it can speed up and make training more efficient.

Monitor of Skin Conductivity

If you gently hold the Noumic Device, with non-changing hand pressure, it becomes an extremely sensitive Monitor of Skin Conductivity. The amount of electric current that your skin allows to pass through it, its conductivity, is variable and ever changing. The changes depend upon some physiological and psychological conditions of the body and mind. This phenomena is explained in more depth in our Conductivity of Human Skin web-page.

The Noumic Device does not give the 'value' or level of conductivity. It simply calculates if conductivity is increasing, decreasing, or remaining constant. It indicates these facts to you; immediately, rapidly, and without giving too much information.

A biofeedback device with different colour LED lights that indicate changes in tension and relaxation of the body and mind. From Skin Conductivity changes you can assess whether the body and mind are relaxing or becoming more tense, or achieving abnormally relaxed and peaceful states.

  • If Skin Conductivity reduces, the Noumic Device produces a Green Light. Lower conductivity correlates with More Relaxation.

  • If Skin Conductivity increases, the Noumic Device produces a Red Light. Higher conductivity correlates with More Tension.

  • If Skin Conductivity does not change, the Device produces a White Light. Static conductivity correlates with a Complete Balance of Relaxation and Tension.

    • A static, non-changing, Balance of Relaxation and Tension can happen momentarily. Most people cannot acieved this for longer than a moment!

    • Psychology Research discovered that, Meditation Experts, or People very experienced in Deep Relaxation, can achieve a static balance of Relaxation and Tension for longer periods. This correlates to periods when special states of mind are achieved; like Supreme Bliss, or Altered States of Consciousness.

Monitor of Hand Pressure

If you gently hold the Noumic Device but with changing hand pressure it becomes an extremely sensitive Monitor of Hand Muscle Tension. The precise level of tension in the hand is variable, it subtly changes all the time, as do most of the muscles in the body. Why hand muscle tension information is so useful, is explained in more depth in our Hand tension web-page.

The Noumic Device does not give you the 'value' or level of force being exerted. It simply calculates if Hand Pressure is increasing, decreasing, or remaining constant. It indicates these facts to you; immediately, rapidly, and without giving too much information.

A Biofeedback Device with different colour LED lights that indicate changes in tension and relaxation of the Human Hand. From hand tension changes you can deduce whether the body is relaxing or becoming tense. Learning the skill of precisely controlling your hand tension and relaxation can lead to some special beneficial effects.

  • If Hand Tension reduces the Noumic Device produces a Green Light. This correlates with More Relaxation.

  • If Hand Tension increases the Noumic Device produces a Red Light. This correlates with Less Relaxation.

  • If Hand Tension does not change, the Device produces a White Light. This correlates to a Balanced state of Relaxation.

Self Training - 'Biofeedback Principle'

The Noumic Device provides these two types of Body Monitoring Information to assist people when learning certain Mind, Body, and Nervous System self control skills.

Psychology research discovered that, if people have appropriate information from Monitoring Devices, it speeds up the learning process. For example, if learning to relax, having a Monitoring Device that indicates how the nervous is responding (feedback information) helps the learning process. Psychologists call this, the self-training 'bio-feedback technique', this is explained in more depth in our Biofeedback web-page.


Possible Uses and Applications

Using a Noumic Device can help with a range of Self Development Practices.

– Improving Body Performance – Body and Mind Relaxation – Nervous System Control – Meditation –

A list of self-control skills that our Device may help with can be found on our Noumic Device - Possible Uses web-page.
