Only 30% of US hospitals have equipment for routine EEGs due to cost and space
Several “neurology deserts” exist in the US and availability outside the country is even more
Approximately 5MM ER patients are indicated for an EEG each year, yet only 25% receive one
Traditional EEG systems are bulky, require dedicated technicians to administer, can take 30 minutes to apply, and require an in-house neurologist to read
Reusable EEG caps are a significant source of hospital acquired infections
Brain E-Tattoo: Revolutionary, Nobel Prize Winning Technology by Brain Scientific
Brain Scientific has commenced development of its proposed Brain E-Tattoo device for the brain diagnostics market, which is expected to feature minimally invasive, subcutaneous graphene electrode implants paired with a micro EEG. The proposed Brain E-Tattoo device is expected to allow for long-term monitoring capabilities and uninterrupted data collection from patients with neurological conditions such as epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and other brain disorders.
It works via a graphene based electrode system connected to a micro EEG that is clipped behind the ear. The micro EEG processes signals collected by the sensors and wirelessly and securely stores them in the cloud, where AI performs continuous analysis.
