Types of Biofeedback Machines or Biofeedback Techniques

Temperature Biofeedback

Temperature biofeedback device monitors skin temperature and can be helpful in certain circulatory disorders. Reynolds disease is an example that can be benefited by this technique. Usually, a sensor is attached to your foot or to the middle or small finger of your dominant hand. When you are tense or anxious, your skin temperature drops as blood is redirected inward to muscles and internal organs. 

Like monitoring muscle tension, measuring skin temperature is a useful tool in learning how to manage stress. This method may also reduce the frequency of migraine headaches, and is also used to promote relaxation.
