The Performance Platform
WAVi Performance provides a multifaceted tool practitioners can use to measure brain performance.
The Performance Platform includes:
EEG allows for the measurement
of brain wave patterns.
WAVi collaborative data sharing creates a community working together to improve the brain.
WAVi Performance’s multi-faceted interface is ideal for tracking brain state changes.
Autonomic Nervous System
- Electroencephalography, or EEG, is the process of measuring the brain’s electrical activity through the scalp.
- The different frequencies of brain waves (alpha, beta, theta, delta) and their amplitudes are assessed.
- WAVi utilizes event-related potentials, or ERPs, to make temporally accurate measurements of brain performance and reactiveness.
- ERPs are well researched markers and provide easy to interpret metrics that are invaluable to health practitioners interested in brain performance. Our platform features both auditory and visual ERPs.
- Heart rate variability, or HRV, is an effective method for measuring the autonomic nervous system.
- Differences between WAVi’s Baseline HRV and HRV Tracking protocols correlate with cardiovascular adaptability.
- Cardiovascular adaptability and fitness can help manage stress and anxiety.
WAVi Research collaborations are pioneering the future of machine learning in medicine.
Headquartered out of Nobel Laureate Tom Cech’s Biofrontiers Institute at the University of Colorado, WAVi Research has created and analyzed data sets that include pre-symptom Alzheimer’s, a 6-year longitudinal concussion study on NCAA athletes, studies on hearing loss and mental function, correlations between heart and brain health, and the effects of interventions on brain performance, including the effects of ADHD medication. Recently, WAVi has been awarded an NIH grant to study acute pain and opioid abuse. WAVi also helps promote its clinicians through open research collaborations made available by the WAVi cloud application.

Frequently Asked Questions
All about WAVi
WHAT DOES WAVi DO?
WAVi is a multifaceted brain performance assessment tool. WAVi makes it possible for those who are proactively improving brain health to measure the effectiveness of their efforts.
What is an ERP?
An ERP (or event-related potential) is a measure of brain response. EEG is used to record the brain’s reaction to a novel stimulus such as a sound or image. ERP tests are time locked to a certain stimulus with a very high temporal resolution (down to the millisecond). Having been involved in innumerable clinical research studies over the last 70+ years, ERP tests are well-established metrics.
What is an EEG?
An EEG (or electroencephalogram) is a typically non-invasive method that tracks and records brain wave patterns. Localized brain activity is recorded via a number of metal electrodes. The EEG brain test is an ideal tool for tracking and observing brain state changes.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WAVi PERFORMANCE AND WAVi MEDICAL?
WAVi Performance offers an all-in-one brain performance assessment tool for use in non-clinical settings. This product is well suited for wellness centers, biohackers, health clubs, sports teams and much more. Testing the effect of your proactive treatments and interventions on the brain has never been easier.
WAVi Medical offers an FDA cleared EEG headset as well as complementary research software. This product is well suited for clinicians and clinical researchers who want to quickly measure brain state and track its changes. The WAVi EEG Headset is FDA cleared for use in routine clinical and research settings where rapid placement of a number of EEG electrodes is desired. The WAVi Desktop software is provided as a service for use in clinical research settings where a combination of research — EEG with evoked responses and public domain assessment tools — is desired. WAVi reports have not been evaluated by the FDA and are provided for research, education, and information.
