The Zeto is a wireless, dry electrode EEG system that requires no prep or cleanup
An electroencephalogram or EEG measures electrical activity within the brain. It’s usually needed to detect epilepsy and helps doctors understand what type of epilepsy a person may have. A typical EEG requires small sensors called electrodes to be placed on the patient’s scalp. A sticky gel is applied directly to the scalp to help the twenty or so electrodes attach to the head, which can leave hair messy. The device needs to be connected to a computer for the recording. The test is usually carried out by skilled professionals in a hospital.
The Zeto is the first FDA-cleared wearable that uses completely dry electrodes, so there is no mess to worry about from the gel. The system is an adjustable headset that is placed directly on the patient’s head with no skin-prep required. The EEG is streamed through the cloud and can be viewed live on any tablet or computer. Data management is available on the secure cloud platform for saving the EEG results.
The platform offers a variety of tools to help healthcare providers share and interpret the results. Tools can help health teams collaborate and annotate, generate reports, and there is an option to have the information reviewed by a neurologist. The device requires no new significant training and can be stored easily, thereby increasing access to this type of test.
A dry electrode, no-prep EEG system reduces stress for the patient while saving both the healthcare provider and patient time.
