Commercially Available for Clinical Research

The richness of our data platform allows us to algorithmically extract many features and biomarkers of neural state and health that can be used across applications including neuro-health, disease management, and drug discovery — both in the clinic and more importantly, in the home.


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.

A Great Experience for Everyone

Mobile ePro and Diary

The neural signals we collect from the ear is just the beginning. With a mobile app that enables in-depth cognitive assessments, self-reports, performance monitoring, and medication tracking, we see users in multiple dimensions.

Obsessive About Privacy & Security

Data about your brain needs to be handled with great care. Privacy and security are, and always will be, a top priority organization-wide. All data collected by NextSense is HIPAA compliant, in accordance with GCP guidelines, and is end-to-end encrypted. We are 21 CFR Part 11 ready, and are regularly audited for NIST Cybersecurity Framework adherence.

Condition-Specific Packages

In addition to general longitudinal monitoring and alerting capabilities, we offer condition-specific packages that users can subscribe to (and that researchers can leverage in their work).

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.

Our Pipeline

Concussion Management

The shape of a concussion’s effects on the brain over time can vary significantly. We are currently working on both detection algorithms as well as real-time insights for medium and long-term concussion management for sports-related concussions as well those caused as a secondary effect of diseases like Parkinsons.

Sleep Disorders and Aging

Tracking sleep EEG longitudinally may provide insight into how the brain is aging. We aim to identify early biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative conditions prior to onset of clinical symptoms, which could eventually lead to preventive intervention.

Seizure Forecasting

As part of our R&D, we’re developing algorithms for seizure forecasting. This may provide patients with a daily seizure risk score, enabling them to modify certain behaviors and/or take an additional dose of medication.
