We have always invested a lot of time in providing detailed and up-to-date Operating Instructions for our products and will keep doing so. However, some procedures regarding product handling are better demonstrated with a video.
Our first two tutorial videos (“How to get started with R-Net and actiCHamp Plus“) and (“How to get started with actiCAP slim and LiveAmp“) were published in late 2019 and can be found on the Brain Products YouTube Channel. Both videos are comprehensive and describe in detail what comes with your shipment, how to prepare the caps and connect them to the amplifiers, how to measure/improve impedances and check signal quality as well as how to clean the electrode systems.
Very recently we published two more very short but surely helpful videos.
How to replace sponges of the R-Net
After some time of use, it may be necessary to replace some of the R-Net sponges. All tools needed to do this are included in the R-Net starter set that is delivered with the electrode system. How to do this is described in the respective Operating Instructions. However, to make your life easier, we produced a very short clip in which the single steps are shown.
How to exchange tubes of the R-Net to optimize its fit
As you may know, you can improve the fit of the R-Net by pressing the buttons on the lace clamping blocks and pulling the corresponding silicone cords up or down (as shown in the image on the right). In some cases, e.g. when working with kids, you may want to further improve the fit. To do so, you can exchange some of the silicone tubes (i.e. use shorter ones). Again, all tools you need are included in the R-Net starter set, and the procedure is described in the Operating Instructions. However, all necessary steps are also demonstrated in the following short tutorial video.
We hope these two new videos will help you in handling our sponge-based electrode system, the R-Net. Further tutorials are already in the planning and will be posted on our YouTube Channel then.
