Revolutionizing How We View Brain Activity

For the first time, we’re able to leverage longitudinal EEG data to diagnose and improve management of neurological disorders.

Faq

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 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 Multi-Lens Approach

We don’t believe there is a one-size fits all method to improve brain health. With a mobile app that enables in-depth cognitive assessments, self-reports, performance monitoring, and medication tracking, we see our members from every angle.

Privacy First

Privacy is, and always will be, our ultimate priority. All data collected is HIPAA compliant, in accordance with GCP guidelines, and is end-to-end encrypted.

Understanding Misunderstood Sleepers

Sleep is core to brain health. Everybody sleeps, and almost everybody can sleep better. Right now, many wearables track a proxy of sleep — and not the actual brain waves recorded during an EEG.

While heart rate and respiration rate help examine sleep data, collecting EEG enables accurate quantification of sleep statistics such as sleep stage and sleep latency. This information is critical in understanding sleep disorders like hypersomnolence, insomnia, circadian rhythm disruption, and certain sleep movement disorders.

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.

On the roadmap

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.
