Belgium's Imec research institute showed the latest version of a headset that acts as a wireless brain wave monitor, geared for applications ranging from monitoring seizures in epileptic patients to helping paraplegics use thoughts to control a keyboard.
The electroencephalogram can read eight channels continuously for 1.5 days with a 25dB signal to noise ratio. The headset uses an eight-channel analog readout ASIC from Imec, a Nordic Zigbee radio and off-the-shelf EEG sensors.
For the next-generation of the headset, Imec is investigating its own designs for dry sensors and 2.4 GHz or ultrawideband radios. The project is part of the group's Human++ project that now includes members from medical electronics and system integration companies.
Thanks for virtual walk through. However, we may like to see walk through video along with talk and interviews. That will be more useful for people who can not attend this trade shows.
Most of this products has wonderful engineering. Many things to learn from these images.
