mindBEAGLE: A new system for consciousness assessment and communication for patients with DOC (disorders of consciousness).

Brain’s electrical activity may provide the only direct path to a patient’s mental state assessment.

Over 40% of patients diagnosed as vegetative

are reclassified as (at least) minimally conscious

when assessed by expert teams.

The mindBEAGLE®system consists of a portable medical grade biosignal amplifier, an EEG cap with active electrodes,

a standard laptop computer with the mindBEAGLE® software, in-ear phones for auditory stimulation and

Hyperscanning - Connecting Minds!

Hyperscanning BCI - A P300 based communication tool for several

users to cooperatively and simultaneously spell.

Many futurists believe that people in the distant future will use

advanced technology to work together more directly, something

like a “hive mind”. People could use technology to help them

not just work together but also think together, accomplishing

goals more quickly and effectively. That future may not be so distant.…

Brainpainting - paint by thoughts!

When art overcomes disabilities...

g.tec integrates a landmark painting application into intendix® personal Brain-Computer Interface.

Before children start to write, they first learn to draw. Drawing is one of the oldest techniques humans have been using to communicate and visualize ideas, knowledge and emotions. There are cave paintings made 40,000 years ago, and people still use painting to express things that cannot be communicated through…

cortiQ - rapid functional mapping of the cortex using the electrocorticogram (ECoG)

g.tec developed a system for rapid functional mapping of the cortex using the electrocorticogram (ECoG).

The system generates a personalized functional map of the cerebral cortex and can be operated

at the patient's bedside. It easily integrates with your existing clinical monitoring system and

uses a brain-mapping system that works in real-time.

The system

  • optimizes surgical procedures and
  • minimizes the burden and the risk for the patient as well…

Brain-Computer Interface for stroke rehabilitation

g.tec performed initial tests with robotic feedback. A motor imagery based Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is presented that is linked to a rehebilitation robot.

The BCI system is used to measure the activation of the sensorimotor cortex to control external supporting robotic devices such as exoskeletons or orthotic devices. The robotic device has the purpose to move the limbs of the patient and this activates again the sensorimotor cortex. The activation can be seen as ERD/ERS changes…
