How it works
For the MaddCog to work, users must first wear the headband. It will then automatically connect to the app, which will be available on mobile and Windows. The mobile app is best for reviewing progress and console gaming, while the Windows app is for immediate post-game reporting and game overlays.
MaddCog also lets users receive live results and after-game recommendations. Here, they can check the feedback that shows the areas that need improvement. It also contains metrics that describe a person’s mental performance.
During the game, players can also check real-time mental performance. They can see their flow and fatigue levels, too. The measurement of fatigue will show how exhausted one is; the higher the fatigue level is, the more likely will it negatively impact one’s gaming performance. The results will also help players understand how many games they can play before they start losing due to exhaustion.
When it comes to mental performance for gaming, getting into deep flow is the key. Our research shows you farm better, get more kills, and ultimately win more games of League of Legends.

As for the flow, it refers to how focused a user is in the game. If they have a high flow, then they’re more likely into the game which is also an indication of a higher chance of winning.
Moreover, MaddCog has an after-game recommendation. Based on the metrics and results of a player’s mental performance, MaddCog will recommend whether they should keep playing or take a break. It can also analyze which time of the day a player is at their best to play.
When you understand your mental performance, you can strategize when to play. The headband can help you increase your winning rate by letting you know if you’re mentally focused and ready. Interested parties can head on to the MaddCog website and sign up to get early access.
