How do I apply sensor conditioner?

Applying sensor conditioner
Do not apply any other substance to the Versus headset. Application of sensor conditioner may be done before each session, or may only be needed occasionally. Frequency of application depends on how many individuals are using the headset and the user's skin pH and hair type. Before applying sensor conditioner, wipe off any excess conditioner from sensors with a dry microfiber cloth.

Apply a lotion-thin amount of the supplied sensor conditioner to the tip of each of the headset's five sensors. ​

What is sensor conditioner?
Sensor conditioner is a thick, soft blend of moisturizing and conductive substances. It should be applied sparingly to the sensor tips to protect their conductive properties. The conditioner prevents the sensors from becoming too dry, which contributes to an inconsistent connection between the headset’s sensors and your scalp.

Where can I purchase additional sensor conditioner?
A jar of sensor conditioner is provided with each Versus headset. However, if you would like to purchase additional sensor conditioner, you can do so here.

How often do I need to apply conditioner to my headset’s sensors?
We recommend applying a small amount to each sensor before your first few sessions. As the headset becomes accustomed to a single person’s skin pH balance, less conditioner may be needed. Some users may need to apply paste before every session, depending on their skin and hair type. ​

Note: Multiple users exercising on a single headset should apply conditioner before every session.

What if I use too much conditioner?
Excess conditioner can be wiped off of each sensor with a finger or a lint-free cloth. To remove conditioner from your hands after applying to sensors, simply wash with warm water; no harsh chemicals are required. Apply sensor conditioner just to the tips of each sensor. Excess sensor conditioner applied too deep into the sensor or beneath the sensor pad can be problematic.

Is sensor conditioner toxic to my skin?
No. Sensor conditioner is designed for skin contact and is therefore comprised of the same types of ingredients commonly found in lotions or hair care products. To remove from your hands after applying to sensors, simply wash with warm water; no harsh chemicals are required.

Is this a ‘wet’ EEG system?
Not at all. The term “wet” in this context describes an EEG system with metal sensors that require an additional conductive substance, such as paste or gel, in order to make any significant or stable connection with the skin. Due to the advanced design of the Versus headset’s sensors, sensor conditioner is not required. However, applying sensor conditioner can speed up the connection process.
