, a commercial-stage healthcare technology company developing solutions in the brain diagnostics space, announced today that Maine Medical Center had placed an order for a limited supply of Pediatric NeuroCap(TM), the Company’s pediatric disposable EEG caps.

The Pediatric NeuroCap(TM) pre-gelled EEG headset is designed to help medical staff conduct electroencephalogram (“EEG”) testing without some of the usual obstacles found in pediatric patients. Traditional EEG testing can be a cumbersome process requiring steps such as measuring and marking the patient’s head, cleaning the scalp, and conducting required sanitation protocols after the testing. With children and infants, the process can be even more challenging as they often resist testing. Also, clinicians must improvise to make equipment that often comes only in adult size fits children’s smaller head circumference.
The Pediatric NeuroCap(TM) is designed to respond to all these obstacles bringing a cost-effective, easy to use and disposable EEG headset made specifically with children in mind. It fits their head easily features 22 pre-gelled electrodes in compliance with the 10-20 international system. It can be quickly deployed, providing EEG study for up to four hours in length. Finally, as a disposable piece of equipment, pediatric NeuroCap(TM) is designed to offer the highest hygienic standards, essential during the pandemic.
“We are happy to provide our pediatric EEG products to Maine Medical Center. The NeuroCap(TM) for children is designed to address the need for comfort, speed, and reliability within the pediatric population. We hope that Maine Medical Center and other hospitals see the benefits of using the product on an ongoing basis,” stated Brain Scientific’s VP Strategy and Business Development, Amy Griffith.
There is an unmet need for quick and reliable EEG testing in children, who often suffer from various neurological symptoms and conditions, such as epilepsy, seizures, sleep problems, brain infections, and more. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, around 470,000 children suffer from epilepsy, which makes it one of the most prevalent neurological disorders in children. Epilepsy could lead to dangerous seizures if left undetected. The World Health Organization reports that up to 70% of epilepsy patients could live without seizures if adequately diagnosed and treated. The use of EEG testing in pediatrics could go beyond epilepsy and include diagnosing ADHD, and autism — two conditions often challenging to diagnose, especially in younger pediatric patients (https://ibn.fm/LkAgx
