25 years of innovation in neuroscience and neurology

Improving neurological health is one of the key challenges of the twenty-first century. EGI has been the leader in neuroscience technology for 25 years with a mission to create the most advanced equipment for neuroscience research laboratories and neurology clinics. Founded with technology developed by its CEO, Don Tucker, EGI has deep scientific roots that inform development of products that are both forward looking and practical to install and use.

New technology that drives research

EGI’s products are widely used in human neuroscience research laboratories around the world, in a broad range of disciplines, from cognition, language, and memory, to consciousness, sleep, ADHD, and autism. This research is also being applied to solving problems in areas as diverse as user interface testing, driver fatigue monitoring, and brain-computer interface development.

Multimodal imaging applications

EGI's technologies are also providing the technology and equipment needed for the advanced neuroscience facilities in leading universities, research hospitals and medical centers. With the accuracy of high-definition recordings, and capability for multimodal recordings, EEG results can be registered precisely with MRI images, as well as near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and neurostimulation data, to align brain function with brain anatomy.

Clinical applications

EGI's products are being used to improve methods for diagnosis and therapeutic guidance for neurological disorders, especially for epilepsy. Translational research is also being conducted in many clinical areas, including depression, concussion, stroke, sleep, traumatic brain injury, and rehabilitation. Because the Geodesic EEG System is comfortable and easy to apply, new markets are developing for which patient acceptance and efficiency of clinical protocol are primary considerations.

New neuromodulation technology

In 2016, EGI applied its dense array EEG technology to developing the most advanced non-invasive neuromodulation device on the market —one with great promise for a better understanding and possible treatment of brain disorders, especially disorders not well controlled by drugs or other therapies. This new technology integrates EGI’s core technologies and research efforts in EEG, electric head modeling, and source analysis, and expands the capabilities of EGI’s research products from brain monitoring and source imaging to research into therapeutic intervention.
