Professional grade signals

The EEG signal quality recorded by EPOC+ is statistically equivalent to traditional research grade devices costing in the tens of thousands of dollars.

Mobile Recording

EPOC+ transmits wireless data at 128 or 256 Hz, so you can record high resolution brain data outside of the laboratory and without being tethered to a computer.

Easy to use

EPOC+’s saline based wet EEG sensors and fixed configuration reduces set up time to a few minutes and avoids messy gels.
