Introducing a novel subdermal EEG electrode

Sixty-five million people worldwide have epilepsy, but the treatment doesn’t work for 20 million of them. Currently, no medical device exists for reliable, long-term, continuous outpatient monitoring of severe epilepsy. The current state-of-the-art is seizure diaries at home and video EEG recordings at the hospital. Our novelty is in developing and validating a subdermal implantable electroencephalogram (EEG) electrode that continuously records all subclinical and clinical seizure activity. Our technology is a game-changing twist on traditional surface, subdural, and cortical electrodes; it will redefine the measurement environment as a future novel implant technology by extending it beyond the clinic into the patient's real life. The electrode is the key element for long-term monitoring implants. Come and learn how our electrodes will benefit the patient, help with your measurement diagnostics, and provide you with data for your research.
