Who is who…?! – New team members at Brain Products

Having a qualified, reliable and committed team is a key factor for staying successful as a company. Just like continuously successful sports teams are proud of their “new signings”, we are proud of ours and would like to briefly introduce our newest team member to you.

R&D – Hardware Development: Dipl.-Ing. Jochen Irmer

I would like to introduce myself as a new team member of the Research & Development department of Brain Products. My name is Jochen Irmer and my responsibilities are focused in the development of electronic devices in conjunction with EEG amplifiers. After obtaining degrees in electronic design and biomedical engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Ulm, I first developed my skills  for signal processing and embedded firmware in the automotive industry. In the mid-1990s I succeeded to invent a laser-based method for detection and location of manufactured goods in the food and pharmaceutical industry to fulfill the requirements of product traceability in the supply chains. The following years I focused on improving the algorithms of the sensor launching it on the market.  In 2007 I stepped again into medical sphere by developing a method for the spatial correlation of subdermal tissue with skin surface in confocal microscopy examinations. In late 2012 I joined the team of Brain Products in Gilching. The first product launch from my laboratory will be the StimTrak which I hope will be a helpful device in your daily workflow.
