EEG electrode with an indicator to improve safety in EEG recordings particularly during scanning by means of an imaging procedure
- Utility Model: 202011104334.0
- Applicant: Brain Products GmbH
- Filed: August 12, 2011
EEG electrode which is suitable for use as an image pickup by means of an imaging apparatus and is attachable at the head of a subject, comprising:
A sensor for receiving an EEG signal, the EEG when the electrode is attached to the head of the subject, the sensor being in contact with the scalp, an electrical resistor, which is connected to the sensor, a housing, wherein the electric resistor is integrated in the housing and the sensor is held by the housing at least partially, and a temperature element which is mounted at a position adjacent to the sensor inside the housing.
The electrode is in a final testing phase and we are expecting improved safety and traceability during combined EEG & fMRI recordings from this unique Brain Products feature.
