NeuroSky ranked #12 Holder of Pervasive Neurotech Intellectual Property*

neuro sky logoNeu­roSky is a ten-year-old pri­vate com­pa­ny focused on biosen­sor inno­va­tion. Their pri­ma­ry prod­ucts are EEG sen­sors (for the mind) and ECG sen­sors (for the body). Though Neu­roSky does have its own pro­pri­etary head­set, Mind­Wave, for use in com­put­er appli­ca­tions and gam­ing, its ThinkGear EEG tech­nol­o­gy is used in part­ner­ship with a vari­ety of oth­er con­sumer prod­ucts, includ­ing toys and nov­el­ty items, that have found suc­cess in the US mar­ket as well as in Asia. On the ECG side, Neu­roSky’s Car­dioChip can be used in a wide range of appli­ca­tions for health mon­i­tor­ing, sports, and HRV guidance.
