Pre-sales questions

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
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 order the pulsators seperately?

Yes, you can purchase them here.

Please note: The pulsators are charged in the base of the Light tube or in a dockingstation.

What are the prices in USD or GBP?

For a list of the estimated USD and GBP Prices, see the pricelist on the shop page.

What are the differences between the EMDR Kit Classic and the EMDR Kit Wireless?

On this page you can read about the differences between the EMDR Kit Classic and the EMDR Kit Wireless.

Are batteries included/needed?

No additional batteries are needed. There is an internal battery within the Light Tube, Pulstaors and Headphone which you can charge with an adapter that is included with the product.

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.

Does the set work with other voltages?

We provide power adapters or converters specifically for your country so you can be sure you can work with it in your country.
We do not charge anything extra for this service.

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.

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.

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.

Can I work without a smartphone or tablet?

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).

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.

Which side table can I use?

In our own practice we all do the therapy sessions seated at a table. But if you are working from a seat, you could use a side table. In our video’s and pictures, the IKEA SVARTÅSEN is used. This table is compact, adjustable in height and available in black and white.

Is a bag included with the set?

The bag is not included as a standard because many therapists work in the same office every day and do not travel with the EMDR Kit. Therefore a bag would be redundant and a waste of material and space. So we chose to not add it as a standard and let people decide for themselves if they need it or not.

Can I use the EMDR Kit Wireless with a laptop?

No. The app is designed for usage with a Apple or Android phone or tablet.

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.

I am having trouble connecting with the EMDR Kit. What steps can i take?

  1. Keep in mind to put the Pulsators in the dockingstation when connecting. When having problems connecting, connect the adapter to the Light tube.
  2. Do you have the latest version of the app? We recommend to remove the app and download it again every now and then to ensure you have the latest version.
  3. Did you charge the pulsators in the dockingstations? Please make sure the Light tube and headphone are connected to the charger and the pulsators are in the dockingstations before following the next steps:
  4. Are the lights on the pulsators red (pulsing) or green when they are fully charged, when you put them in the dockingstations? If not, let us know.
  5. Start the app and go to the Connect menu (top left corner), press on ‘choose light tube’ and then press on RESET ALL.
  6. Now, shut down the app completely. On an apple device you can do this by pressing twice on the home button of the device and then swipe the EMDR Kit away so that it is shut down. On an android device, press on the icon with a square or multiple squares in the bottom menu on your device. Close the EMDR Kit app.
  7. Now, go to the Bluetooth settings on your device. Here you can see available devices and paired devices. IF there are paired devices related to the EMDR Kit, ‘forget’ all the parts related to the EMDR kit. On an Apple device you can do this by looking beneath ‘My devices’ and click on the Information symbol and then choose ‘Forget device’. On an android device, you can see paired devices. If there are paired devices related to the EMDR Kit, press on the settings icon and press on ‘Forget.
  8. Now, turn OFF Bluetooth and after waiting for 5 seconds, turn it on again.
  9. Start the app.
  10. Connect the light tube and the pulsators in the App by following the next steps:
  11. Press on the Connect menu in the top left corner.
  12. Press on choose light tube and connect the light tube by pressing on the available light tube. It should turn on now.
  13. Press on the menu again and connect both pulsators.

At what distance should my client be seated?

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.
