Tips Before You Start

Last Updated: Aug 30, 2018 04:28PM UTC

This is a working document, and will be constantly updated.

If, at any time during use, you experience a headache or discomfort, take the headset off and rest for at least 15 minutes. If possible, take a 5 minute break after every 20 minutes of use and remove the headset while not actively using Versus.

User Prep:


  • Apply a thin layer of the supplied Sensor Conditioner to each sensor. Using your fingers to apply conditioner will aid in helping the headset 'get used' to your skin's pH balance.

  • Applying Sensor Conditioner

Head / Scalp Prep:

  • It is important to have clean, dry hair before using Versus to minimize difficulties with sensor connection. 

  • Avoid hair oils, serum, leave-In conditioners, or hair additives. If they are used and you have difficulties with sensor connection, simply wash products out of hair prior to using Versus.​

​Physical State:

  • Seated: Try not to move excessively or tense up any muscles (body/arms/legs/jaw.)

  • Quiet: Talking or having conversations while exercising may lead to inaccurate data. 

Site Prep:

​Chair: The type of chair you are in can effect the sensor readings.

  • Avoid chairs with metal frames or high backs

  • Use plastic or natural material chairs (the least amount of metal possible)


  • 60hz (electrical) interference can cause inaccurate data. Stay away from unshielded power cables/lines, older/high output florescent light fixtures, and power cables/chargers.

  • Physical contact with a 'grounding source' (touching large metal objects, holding charging cables, holding the iPad while it charges) may affect sensor readings.  


  • Device Compatibility

  • Do not charge your iDevice while using Versus. This will cause interference with the headset's readings, leading to inaccurate data.
