Summary of "Portable cost-effective EEG data acquisition system."

Neuro-cognitive dysfunctions are common clinical abnormalities found in society. They require objective analysis by various instruments; an important technique involves monitoring electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. To date, EEG machines have been robust, costly and require patients to come to a hospital for test. Therefore, we have constructed a simple, cheap and portable EEG instrument for wider patient use. It consists of two active digital EEG probes with two channels each, making it a four-channel portable acquisition system. It is further connected through a two-wire serial bus to the acquisition unit, which comprises an analogue to digital converter (ADC) and an ARM board processor with 2 GB memory and USB interface. The whole system is placed in a small box making it highly portable for wider use in clinical settings.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A computer disk read by a laser beam, containing data prerecorded by a vendor. The buyer cannot enter or modify data in any way but the advantages lie in the speed of accessibility, relative immunity to damage, and relatively low cost of purchase.

The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, QUALITY OF LIFE, etc. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.

The assignment, to each of several particular cost-centers, of an equitable proportion of the costs of activities that serve all of them. Cost-center usually refers to institutional departments or services.

The visual display of data in a man-machine system. An example is when data is called from the computer and transmitted to a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY or LIQUID CRYSTAL display.

MICROCOMPUTERS, sometimes called PDA, that are very small and portable, fitting in a hand, and that have much more function than a calculator. They are convenient to use in clinical and other field situations for quick data management. They usually require docking with MICROCOMPUTERS for updates.
