Questions before purchase
What are the minimum requirements for tablet/smartphone?
You will need a smartphone or tablet (iOS or Android) to work with the EMDR Kit. iPhone 6s/iPad 4th generation or up Make sure the latest version of iOS is installed on your device.
For Android there are also additional minimum system requirements: CPU speed: 1,6 GHz RAM: 2 GB Make sure the latest version of Android is installed on your device.
We have tested the EMDR kit Wireless with many different devices. However, we can not guarantee that it works on every device as some manufacturers save on the parts of their phone or tablet such as the Bluetooth module. We advise against using a HUAWEI device to work with the EMDR Kit. If you have doubts about whether your tablet/phone meets the requirements, feel free to contact us.
Can I work without a smartphone or tablet?
This is not possible. The EMDR kit Wireless is controllable with the EMDR Kit app, which only works on a smartphone or tablet (iOS or Android).
Is the height of the EMDR kit adjustable?
No. We recommend to use the EMDR Kit with a side table if you use it in a situation where you are seated at a desk or table.
Do I need a WIFI / internet connection?
No. After downloading the app no WIFI or internet connection is required to work with the EMDR Kit.
Can multiple users work with one EMDR Kit?
Yes, this is possible. Everyone can download the EMDR Kit app and use any EMDR Kit. Once an EMDR Kit is connected with your device it can not connect with another device (from a colleague) at the same time. When you close the app on your device it will become available again for other devices to connect with.
How does charging work?
You can charge the Light Tube with the included charger. Just plug the charger into the Light Tube so it can start charging. The Pulsators are charged in the dockingstations positioned in the base of the Light Tube. They will charge when the charger is attached to the Light Tube. The Headphone can also be charged with a charger.
Can I use the EMDR Kit Wireless with a laptop?
This is not possible. The EMDR kit is controlable with the EMDR Kit app, which only works on a smartphone or tablet (iOS or Android).
How are the different parts synchronized?
The Pulsators and headphones are synced to the light tube in the following way: When the light dot passes the middle of the light tube and moves to the right of the light tube, the headphone will make a sound on one side and one Pulsator will pulse. When the light dot passes the middle of the light tube and moves to the left of the light tube, the headphone will make a sound on the other side and the other Pulsator will pulse. It depends on the speed of the stimuli where on the Light Tube the different stimuli will end their stimulation. The way our equipment is synced is based on that when your eyes move from left to right (light dot crosses the middle) the other stimuli will also give their stimulation. When your eyes move from the right to the left, the other side of the stimuli will give their stimulation. So the tipping point in our equipment is based on when your eyes move from the left side and the middle and move to the right side (or the other way around). This way the stimulation of the Pulsators and the headphones are received in the brain at the same time as the stimulation that is done with the eyes.

How far should the client be seated from the Light Tube?
The light bar must be placed so that when the lamp is turned on, the client’s eyes move from side to side completely when following the light.
It is useful to test the EMDR Kit yourself before you use it during therapy. Make sure that the eyes completely shift from left to right. In a seated position, this is around 50 cm (~1,6ft.) if you measure from the base of the light tube to your chest.
You can always discuss what works best with your client. Always pay attention to the eyes of your client and change the distance whenever it deems necessary.
How can I prevent incoming calls / messages?
When working with the EMDR kit app, we recommend putting your tablet or smartphone in ‘flightmode’, so you will not get interrupted during your therapy. Note that bluetooth has to work. So when putting your smartphone or tablet in flightmode, turn bluetooth on again.
