An electroencephalography no longer needs to be a complicated affair of patches and wires. Imec’s EEG headset combines user comfort with low-power technology, which opens doors to new therapeutic possibilities.
EEG brain scans have been around for a long time to diagnose medical conditions like epilepsy or sleep disorders. Recently, they have also proved to be useful in wider therapeutic contexts such as VR-based cognitive treatments, cognitive skill improvement and rehabilitation.
For these applications, however, traditional EEG technologies fall short. They take too much time to set up and literally chain the test subject to the machine. Imec’s low-power wireless EEG headset, capable of real-time attention and emotion detection, liberates the EEG from the lab.
Imec’s wireless EEG headset contains the necessary technology for real-time cognitive state detection:
Since you don’t need expertise in electrode placement, setting up an EEG with this device is a matter of minutes. And the user can comfortably wear it for hours. That opens exciting therapeutic possibilities such as:
