News: Advanced Brain Monitoring receives Global Health and Pharma Award for clinical-grade platforms monitoring brain’s electrical activity

Advanced Brain Monitoring Named “Most Innovative Medical Device Company” at Global Health and Pharma Awards (Sleep Review):

“Advanced Brain Monitoring Inc was named the “Most Innovative Medical Device Company” by Global Health and Pharma at its 2016 Healthcare and Pharmaceutical awards. “This award recognizes our company’s successes in developing technologies which enable clinicians and clinical trial sponsors to profile brain health through the analysis of the brain’s electrical activity (EEG) during sleep and wake,” says Chris Berka, Advanced Brain Monitoring CEO…The company was recently awarded a $1.5 mm grant from National Institute of Health to expand its database of awake and sleep EEG in patients with neurodegenerative diseases. “The envisioned future is for routine brain health assessments during sleep and waking to be conducted in a manner similar to a mammogram or colonoscopy,” says Berka. “Ultimately, early detection will increase the likelihood that an intervention can be matched to the patient based on the presence of brain biomarkers and administered prior to the onset of cognitive decline.”
