NeuroPro, a developer of innovative solutions for capture, analysis and visualization of brain signal data for medical and non-medical applications, today announced a novel electroencephalogram (EEG) headset, NeuroTrail, at the conference “Imagining the Future of Medicine” at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Developed in partnership with Belgian-based nanoelectronics research center imec and Swiss-based innovation house Creaholic, the headset integrates imec and Holst Centre’s cutting-edge technology in Body Area Networks (BANs) for highly accurate real-time wireless EEG monitoring with an original design developed by Creaholic, combining user comfort with clinical quality EEG monitoring.
The headset designed by Creaholic represents a major step towards achieving high-quality EEG recordings with very low setup time, thereby both improving the patient’s comfort and clinical efficiency. NeuroTrail is optimized for a wide variety of head shapes and sizes, accommodating 1-8 measurement channels and individual electrodes can be easily relocated on standardized positions of the international 10-20 system. By simplifying and drastically reducing the setup time for recording EEG signals, NeuroTrail creates new opportunities for ambulatory and home monitoring as well as consumer applications.
The Neurotrail EEG headset is based on imec and Holst Centre’s wireless EEG measurement platform, which combines low-power technology, active electrodes and high signal quality with wireless connectivity to a smart phone or tablet. Integrated with NeuroPro’s visualization software, the headset will revolutionize brain signal analysis by leveraging the latest developments in mobile computing and cloud computing technology.
“We have been creating circuits and compact systems for wearable EEG for the past 6 years,” commented Chris van Hoof, Program Director Wearable Healthcare (HUMAN++) at imec/Holst Centre. “But achieving clinical-grade functionality in a consumer-grade headset required rethinking the electronic subsystem to make imec technology fit inside. This new system was only possible thanks to a very intensive and close collaboration between Neuropro, Creaholic and imec.”
