Electroencephalography (EEG) Devices Market Trends, Regulations And Competitive Landscape: Increased Demand for Advanced Imaging Techniques for Brain Monitoring Has Led to Proliferation of EEG Devices in Recent Years

Press Release   •   May 20, 2016 03:20 EDT

Electroencephalography is a neurological test that measures and records electrical activities in the brain. Neurological disorders such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s, among others are diagnosed through EEG. An EEG setup includes collection storage and display of data using components such as connecting wires, display device, amplifiers, electrodes, and software. EEG is a low-cost noninvasive method of brain monitoring. This method is expected gain prominence over the following five to six years.
