10 Channel Prototype to 16 Channel Medical Grade EEG Headset

Epilepsy affects an estimated 50 million people worldwide. These people can experience unexpected seizures that makes it risky for them to engage in everyday activities like driving and walking. A portable wireless neuromonitoring headset prototype that is worn on the head has been developed by Avertus Inc. to address this issue. The headset is designed to read brain waves, and, through a wireless connection to a cell phone, warn the wearer that the device has measured brain activity characteristic with an oncoming seizure. Improvements to the robustness and comfort of the headset are required to make it easier for epilepsy patients to wear and to help improve its accuracy of seizure prediction. TO BE CONT'D
