KPRC 2 News segment on the NeuroEXO
Quality EEG amplifiers can range in the tens of thousands of dollars. This high cost is one important hurdle for EEG research commercial translations outside of the clinic. For some clinical applications, such as stroke rehabilitation, a typical program may last a year - a timeline that makes extensive EEG-based clinical rehabilitation financially prohibitive. Other applications of industrial relevance include, but are not limited to, video games, more engaging learning environments, attention tracking, and robust BMI control. The design and testing of a low-cost amplifier, integrated with an open-sourced processing board, formed the motivation for the development of the NeuroEXO. With the NeuroEXO, we aim to improve the feasibility of at-home neurorehabilitation for patients with chronic stroke by providing a low-cost, portable, form-fitting, reliable, and easy-to-use system.
