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.”
