30th of May 2018
Oulu, Finland, May 30, 2018 – Bittium BioSignals Ltd, a subsidiary of Bittium Corporation, and Cerenion Oy announce a collaboration project on bringing advanced brain monitoring into the array of vital signs monitoring available to intensive care staff. The collaboration aims on providing a comprehensive solution for brain electrical activity monitoring for intensive care patients, by combining Bittium BrainStatus™ a wireless EEG-monitoring device meant for real-time brain electrical activity to Cerenion’s innovative C-Trend™ index that interprets EEG signal to a simple score facilitate and accelerate the work of nursing staff.
Recently European CE medical approved wireless Bittium BrainStatus™ EEG amplifier and electrode headband enables high quality and fast EEG signal measurement. Through the use of Cerenion C-Trend™ technology this signal data is turned into a simple score that reveals the status of the patient’s brain at the bed-side and without requiring any changes to the care of the patient.
“Based on advanced machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence, the Cerenion C-Trend index transforms the standard EEG signal set into a practical score that is readily interpretable by intensive care staff”, reports Dr. Timo Koskela, CEO of Cerenion Oy. “The C-Trend index coupled with Bittium’s easy-to-use wireless hardware is a perfect match”, he continues.
“The easy to wear, wireless and compact Bittium BrainStatus EEG amplifier and electrode headband enables quick measurement up to 24 hours. The EEG measurement score transformed by the Cerenion C-Trend technology makes the interpretation of the measurement easy. This is a functional and easy-to-use solution for the intensive care unit and speeds up the patient’s treatment process”, says Hannu Huttunen, CEO of Bittium Corporation.
The first line of C-Trend-enabled Bittium BrainStatus devices are expected to become available in 2019.
