Commercially Available for Clinical Research
Electroencephalography (EEG) measures brain waves that reflect the coordinated electrical activity of thousands of neurons. This method is used in clinical environments to detect abnormal brain activity and help with the diagnosis of different neurological conditions. During an EEG test, small metal disks are typically attached to the patient’s scalp and wired to an amplifier device for anywhere between 20 minutes (routine EEGs) to several days (ambulatory EEGs).
Although EEG has long been the gold standard for neurological examinations, it presents a number of technical challenges long recognized by clinicians. Capturing neuropathological events is quite rare during routine EEGs, and EEGs captured over multiple days are impractical long-term because traditional machines are incredibly bulky and limited to use in a clinical setting.

Reducing the Risk of Stroke
Replace with: Many strokes are preceded by Transient Ischemic Attack—or TIAs—a temporary blockage of blood flow to the brain. TIAs can last only a few minutes. As a result, they often go ignored.
NextSense can alert people who are experiencing a TIA. If these people see a medical professional, they can reduce their chance of having a full blown stroke by 90%.
Empowering Individuals With Epilepsy
Individuals with epilepsy often feel like they’re at the mercy of their next seizure. Regardless of frequency, they’re plagued with the fear that they’ll have an attack at an important event like a wedding or that they’ll lose their driving privileges if they have a seizure while on the road.
Currently, there is no continuous remote monitoring and care solution on the market for epilepsy. Our biosensing earbuds can provide physicians with important information about how a patient is responding to a particular treatment in real time, enabling more effective medication titration for maximal benefit while minimizing side effects.
