New auditory modes give you the choices you need:
The integrated auditory functions include 4 selectable sounds; alternating tones, click, double click, and arcade modes (try the arcade mode with kids). Additionally, you can connect the Advanced Tac/AudioScan™ to any audio source including CD players, cassette tape players or even a radio and enjoy your favorite selections alternated at your choice of speeds. Best of all, your audio selection is synchronized with the alternating tactile stimulation for added benefit. Now you can administer EMDR using your client’s favorite songs, mood and inspirational music, self help recordings or even make your own self-help tapes directed specifically to the needs of each client.
Easy to control and use:
The speed, pulser intensity, volume adjustments, on/off and auditory mode controls for the Advanced Tac/AudioScan™ are on the front of the unit allowing easy access. The headphones, tactile pulsers and external audio source connect on the top. Since the auditory and tactile stimulations are synchronized, the speed adjustment controls both tactile and audio rates. The pulser strength has a wide range of adjustability from no intensity (completely off) to full, maximum strength. All adjustments have calibrated dials allowing the clinician to record each clients’ preferred settings. The oval shaped tactile pulsers are very small, only 1" wide by only 1.5" long and less than 1/2" thick. These small pulsers may be easily and comfortably held in the hands, placed in gloves or any other convenient place. Additionally, the pulsers may be attached to wrists, arms or legs using velcro straps or elastic exercise bands (not included).
Both the headphones and the tactile pulsers connect to the Advanced Tac/AudioScan™ controller via 6 foot cords and small 3.5mm connectors. This allows you the choice of using both auditory and tactile together for maximum benefit or you may use the audio and tactile functions separately. For additional distances from the controller, both the headphones and the tactile pulsers may be connected using optional extender cables. Two green lights provide a visual indication of the selected speed. Four amber lights display internal audio modes when selected and an orange light indicates when the external audio source is selected. An AC adapter is included for operation from a permanent power source, or it can be powered with a 9V battery for total portability.
You can even make your own bi-lateral recordings:
By simply connecting a tape recorder or Compact Disc recorder to the headphone jack of the Advanced Tac/AudioScan, you can record the alternating audio just as you would normally hear it when using the headphones. All you need is an extra audio interface cable for the tape recorder connection.
