Depends on the measurement basis... If you are talking about effectiveness per day - Remote and Contact are approximately the same.
Yet, if you talk about hours connected to gear, Remote wins hands down, because you don't need to ever be connected...
If you are talking about per day, they are roughly equivalent effectiveness per calendar day. If you talk about one hour of computer time for each, then Contact wins - because remote runs 24 hours per day... It is all about perspective. For me, Remote wins big because I don't ever need to be tied to the computer for normal programs.
Just need connection for biofeedback sessions - which are equivalent between all modalities.
