Products designed with children in mind

Medical procedures may be traumatic for children and parents alike. From many years of experience with Geodesic EEG in child development research laboratories, EGI's scientists and support engineers have learned how to make the EEG examination painless and enjoyable for both children and their parents.

Kid friendly electrode placement

The Geodesic Sensor Net (GSN) is a gentle and painless electrode placement system used in the Geodesic EEG System (GES). Technicians find it easy to apply the Sensor Net quickly, and are therefore able to take advantage of the child's attention and good mood to obtain high-quality EEG recordings. Most infants and children forget they are wearing the Net soon after it is applied.

Improved patient satisfaction

Using the GES, high-quality EEG data can be obtained without the need for restraints or sedation, even for very active or challenging children. The result is a major improvement in the response of children, and their parents, to the EEG evaluation.

High Density Electroencephalography (HD-EEG) and Desensitization Techniques Improve Compliance Without Sedation or Restraint for Children and Adults with Behavioral Challenges.

At the Center for Neurological and Neurodevelopmental Health (CNNH), headquartered in Voorhees, New Jersey, Dr. Mark Mintz and his associates have implemented High Density EEG (HD EEG) assessment, using Geodesic EEG Systems, in their routine EEG evaluation of children, including those who have developmental, behavioral, or pervasive personality disorders, are developmentally delayed, or who have had traumatic experiences with conventional EEG previously, without the need for sedation or restraint.

Dr. Mintz describes the goals of his practice: "There are many children and adults with special needs who would diagnostically benefit from the information provided by an EEG, but cannot obtain one because of severe behavioral reactions and non-compliance. However, with the use of HD EEG and the patient-friendly sensor net, we have been able to obtain high-quality EEG data from this "underserved" special needs population. In many cases, previous neurologists unsuccessfully tried to obtain conventional EEG studies, or used restraint or sedation, rendering the studies unreliable. High Density EEG overcomes the obstacles of conventional EEG, providing access to advanced technologies for diagnostically "underserved" populations".
