Insight setup guide how to wear illustration


Correctly position the headset

Position the reference sensors to touch the skin behind the ear. It is critical that the reference sensors make contact with the skin behind the ear. If necessary, gently bend the reference sensor arm so that the sensors make contact with the skin.

Frontal sensors should align above each eye and should be positioned about three finger widths above the eyebrows. If necessary, re-moisten the sensor pads with the re-hydration solution.
