NuroChek Device FAQs
Nurochek will be a portable headset using validated, patented technology to actually measure the brain’s electrical activity and send results to a smartphone for analysis and securely to the cloud for storage and future comparison.
The Nurochek test will only take 2-3 minutes.
Yes! Both our design and production will be to international medical and safety standards.
A small amount of discomfort from the EEG headset can occur.
Mild headache and nausea may rarely occur as a result of continual flashing stimulus. If this is the case, you will be able to tell the person conducting the test and take a break.
In an extremely small number of cases (less than 2 in every million), flashing lights have been known to trigger a seizure in people already diagnosed with epilepsy.
You will be asked if you are epileptic and should not be tested if you have a history of epilepsy, seizure, fits, faints or funny turns.
Nurochek will use established technology to actually measure aspects of the brain’s normal electrical activity using EEG measurements.
A custom headset will shine light into the user’s eyes, and electrodes on the back of the will head broadcast the EEG signal to a smart phone for analysis and to the cloud for secure storage.
Our aim is that the Nurochek headset will retail for under USD$500 and the software sell for around USD$30/user/year.
Like all medical devices, there are strict rules in every country around the safety and efficacy of new technology.
We are currently planning clinical trials in Australia, the US, Europe and New Zealand, and the data from these will supplement extensive engineering tests which will ultimately allow us to apply for Regulatory Approval in these countries (FDA, CE Mark and TGA).
We will let you know when Nurochek is available near you!
