Treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury in Malaysia - Ken Case (Clinical Neurofeedback Method)

Testimonial from Ken's Wife:

My hubby has TBI due to hypoxia, involuntary movement issue due to cardio arrest, and visual problem. These conditions cause him to experience loss of memory, have a foggy brain, and he is unable to read, write, work and see well. 

My hubby did hyperbaric oxygen therapy and occupational therapy, but the result is not obvious or significant. 

After 80 times of neurofeedback, he can read now, both short-term and long-term memory have improved, his involuntary movement issue is slightly improved, and he is able to write better than before, can do math and play piano as well. 

He is now more confident and, in the process to prepare himself to teach again. Also, it helps him to increase his energy. I found that neurofeedback is so valuable as it gives hope to my hubby to start his new life again. The staff here are very helpful, they assisted me in understanding every aspect of neurofeedback and make me feel confident of this method.

BEFORE Clinical Neurofeedback Treatment: The brain showed underarousal (red in circle area). It may lead to impaired executive functioning and overall brain functions problem. Red in color indicates that the underarousal problem is very obvious.

AFTER Clinical Neurofeedback Treatment: The brain has improved significantly (red in circle area). Now we can clearly see that there are few points show in orange color, and those areas actually represent his current main concern (involuntary moment etc). Thus, we can tailored made new training protocol to train the brain, likes a muscle.

QEEG Brain Mapping in Malaysia

What is QEEG brain mapping?
A QEEG brain map (or 'Q' for short) enables us to see your unique pattern of mental strengths and weaknesses - areas of the brain where there is too little or too much activity, and areas that are not coordinating their activity the best they could. We use QEEGs for our initial assessment, to design your neurofeedback training programme, and to track your progress over your sessions. It involves nothing more than wearing a sensor cap so we can listen to what your brain is doing. Once we can see the reason for your struggles on a brain level, we can create a neurofeedback training programme to help resolve it.
We use software analysis tools, but software cannot make human judgements or put the map in context of you and your goals. As with most fields, there is an art to it that only comes with experience. Most people find their QEEG fascinating. There are seldom any surprises in the brain map; it is a measure how you feel and function, and presumably you already know how you feel. Still, most find real comfort and validation in getting a measure on those feelings or challenges, and relief that they can be shifted.

Brain mapping is a means to measure brain function. It has become a primary tool in neuroscience. QEEGs are used in research centres all over the world to study ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, depression and bipolar disorder, PTSD, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, and emotional conditions of every sort. It is a recognized diagnostic tool for some medical conditions in Germany and the USA.

Are you wondering why your healthcare professional hasn’t conducted a brain map or recommended one for you?
Most psychiatrists and mental health professionals don’t utilize brain mapping because it’s not part of their conventional tools. Conducting a QEEG involves a huge learning curve and is very technical. They also may not know enough about brain mapping to feel comfortable recommending it.

How is a qEEG brain map conducted?
Conducted in our office, the entire process takes about 60 minutes. It’s comfortable and painless but does result in a “bad hair” day. During the recording you sit in a comfortable chair wearing a cap with electrodes that record 19 sites on your head. The brain mapping process looks very similar to what a neurologist does when conducting a conventional EEG. However, a QEEG brain map analyzes very different information than what the neurologist does.

Why come to us for a brain mapping?
Despite brain mapping’s importance, not every neurofeedback practice offers it. Conducting a brain map requires special equipment as well as technical know-how and skill. Additionally, it takes a great deal of experience to interpret the findings and to be able to custom-design protocols for each client using those findings. We are one of the pioneers in clinical neurofeedback in Malaysia and our practitioner is one of the only two master trainers in clinical neurofeedback (Malaysia).

QEEG brain mapping assessment

Your brain is a highly complex organ made up of billions of cells called neurons. Neurons send and receive messages to and from all parts of your body. This electrical flow in the brain can be measured and mapped using a QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram). This is known as a “brain map.” Getting a QEEG involves having patients put on a cap that measures 19 sites on their brain. The sites show functions such as focus, worry, decision making, and obsessive thinking.

QEEG, which was developed in the late 1970s, is a type of brain map or database that provides a more visual way to look at the formation of brain waves. QEEG allows you to see more clearly what's going on with their brain functioning. It enables us to see how their brain is communicating. With quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) it is possible to observe several patterns that include optimal states of psychic balance, but also states of focus, attention, language ability, fear, anxiety, panic, anger, impatience, panic attack and depression etc.
Why do I need QEEG brain mapping?
We use the brain map as a kind of “fitness evaluation” or a “roadmap” so we know how best to develop a neurofeedback protocol for your specific situation. In doing so, mind we endeavor to teach your brain how to balance itself, physician eliminating the “noise” and habits that may be causing or contributing to your symptoms. Clinical Neurofeedback training can also be used to enhance your performance, remedy too.Your brain map, which takes just an hour, will capture a window of your brain activity, analyze the data, and create a visual representation for each lobe of the brain and each specific type of brain wave (Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta). And please be aware that brain mapping is not a medical diagnostic tool but merely a method to understand your brain function better.
Prior to getting a QEEG, we could only see how the brain was functioning at specific sites. With the QEEG, we can now see the relationships between different areas of the brain at the same time. As a result, I have a much clearer picture of what's going on in patients' brains, so their treatment is much more effective. QEEG is really a wonderful tool that works hand in hand with clinical neurofeedback.

What experience and training do you need to provide brain maps and neurofeedback training?
Hiro Koo is a certified clinical neurofeedback practitioner from the Spectrum Biofeedback Certification Institute of Asia (SBCIA). He is also master trainer of the SBCIA, it is an institute that provide certification and research & development in the field of Neurofeedback and Biofeedback. SBCIA is the premiere training/Research institute in Asia-Pacific for neurofeedback, biofeedback and self-regulatory exercises. Hiro Koo is one of the first two master trainers of clinical neurofeedback in Malaysia. Hiro Koo was trained by the late Dr Dr Kenneth Kang, a Educational Psychologist, who is the founder of the first neurofeedback therapy centre in Asia (1995) and founding president of SBCIA.

What can I do after the QEEG brain mapping assessment?
You can do the brain training with clinical neurofeedback which can help build new circuits that minimize fear, shame, and anger, that is, compromised brain development can affect emotional control, Control of verbal or behavioral impulses and neurocognition as intelligence, memory, perception and attention. 
The treatment is based on the belief that the source of a person’s problematic condition — for example anxiety and depression - is due to brain disregulation and Neurofeedback Training (NFT) helps to restore that balance. The electrodes on the electroencephalogram (EEG) cap allow your brain function to be fed back to you through the computer screen. The specific problematic areas are then identified that need training.
“The only way you can get that video to play is by making your brain function better. That happens randomly at the beginning but what happens over time is that by making the video play, a person is learning to control their brain function in the area where it is needed.”

QEEG Health Talk - Client reviews[顾客回馈]

QEEG Health Talk [顾客回馈篇]

前天的Health Talk讲座,我有三位顾客也出席了该讲座并分享了一些心得。

最近有位被诊断为自闭症的孩子来到我的中心,以肉眼判断,这孩子不是很严重的自闭症小孩,但症状和其他自闭症孩子差不多一样。他是父母唯一的宝贝,是独生 子。父母说孩子小时候疑似因女佣疏忽而跌到多次,他们怀疑这和孩子现在的状况有关。他们带孩子去过很多地方看诊,专业人士以其孩子的行为评断其为自闭症。 但孩子不曾接受任何针对脑部进行窥探的检测。
