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.”

Descrip­tion: Rev­o­lu­tions in neu­rotech­nol­ogy will soon influ­ence every aspect of human life. Neu­rotech­nol­ogy can be used to fur­ther under­stand the nat­ural process­es of the brain, study and treat neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­or­ders and injuries, and enhance neur­al capa­bil­i­ties, result­ing in increased human intel­li­gence and effi­ciency. Out­side of the realm of health, it can be used in social con­texts to improve over­all qual­ity of life. Read the rest of this entry »

Brain Training and Cognitive Assessment Market Surpassed $1.3 Billion In 2013

Heads-up: We just announced a new intel­li­gence pack­age aimed at edu­ca­tion, health, gam­ing and tech­nol­o­gy exec­u­tives and inno­va­tors.

Many mar­ket reports pro­vide lit­tle val­ue for the mon­ey. This mar­ket report by Sharp­Brains is the pre­cise oppo­site. Its wealth of data and analy­sis pro­vides very valu­able strate­gic and busi­ness devel­op­ment guid­ance to orga­ni­za­tions at the fron­tier of health and well­ness,” says Alexan­dra More­house, VP of Brand Man­age­ment at Kaiser Per­ma­nente.
