BrainView System Benefit
The ability to rapidly, inexpensively, and reliably measure the functional health of the brain is important in regard to identifying numerous medical conditions. Before the BrainView system, the only brain assessment technology available that used EEG was not portable, used complicated accompanying software, and was not practical to use in a busy medical practice. BrainView was developed from the necessity to develop a wireless, automated, rapidly deploying brain function measurement, and treatment system that was also non-intrusive and low-cost.
Due to the test length of 25 minutes, the BrainView is ideal for primary care and specialty physicians caring for patients within their offices.
The BrainView system is a 21-channel EEG/ERP amplifier that includes a dedicated laptop and testing supplies. The system utilizes high-quality circuit boards and components in order to allow for high-quality brain measurements, as well as important heart data (HRV).
The BrainView system is designed for technicians with any experience level to reliably record EEG, ERPs and symptom inventories that are then analyzed and processed into useful reports that assist the physician with evaluating patient conditions and changes to the treatment plan.
By providing world-class service, BrainView has marked its territory in the industry and is gaining popularity and strong support of the international medical research community.
Health care providers often state that they feel overwhelmed by the seemingly endless preprocessing steps needed to get results from raw EEG signals. Analyzing EEG data and designing optimal EEG paradigms requires a high level of expertise. Countless aspects need consideration. These include signal processing, feature extraction, attenuation, and artifact detection and removal.
BrainView combines industry-validated and innovative neuropsychological tests with simultaneous electroencephalography (EEG) recording. Our medical software rapidly analyzes and transforms the EEG's event-related potential (ERP) data into actionable insights on core cognitive functions.
BrainView is backed by more than 30 years of globally celebrated, peer-reviewed scientific research.

Objective Cognitive Assessment
Memory loss and other cognitive disorders can occur at any age for a variety of reasons, including: stress, dementia, head injury, sleep disorders, and pain. At the primary care level, current testing lacks the sensitivity and specificity to make accurate patient assessments. Until recently, it has been difficult to objectively assess patients for cognitive impairment due to the lack of specificity.
There is an increased need for physician to test neuro-function due to the aging population, the prevalence of stress and pain, and increased awareness of the impact of head injuries on cognition. Memory loss and cognitive symptoms can occur outside of normal age-associated memory loss. When assessing a head injury, physician must be sure to accurately assess brain function in order to avoid legal repercussions. Without proper diagnosis, a head injury can have a severe negative impact on patient outcomes. Patients that are cognitively impaired can present with symptoms of confusion, forgetfulness, "brain fog," and functional impairment.
The BrainView system enables the physician to quickly and objectively assess biomarkers to aid in diagnosis memory loss and cognitive impairment in the office. As the population ages, the prevalence and impact of cognitive impairment can have a significant effect on individuals, families, and society as a whole, A decline in cognitive abilities is now believed to be a process that occurs over 20 to 30 years, eventually leading to poor cognitive outcomes. Cognitive testing as early as the age of 35 can be beneficial. Current paper-based assessments used in primary care have difficulty determining the dementia subtype, resulting in less successful treatment outcomes. As many as 86% of deceased patients suffering from dementia were misdiagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. The BrainView system can help assess patients' biomarkers to aid in diagnosis up to 15 years prior to the onset of symptoms. Early detection of cognitive disorders allows for quicker treatment of the associated causes, such as nutritional deficiencies, stress, thyroid problems.
The BrainView aids in the assessment of both the Central Nervous Systems (CNS) and Autonomic Nervous Systems (ANS). The function of the CNS is determined through EEG activity, while the ANS is objectively assessed simultaneously through the ECG.
