New EEG Electrode Set for Fast and Easy Measurement of Brain Function Abnormalities

New EEG Electrode Set for Fast and Easy Measurement of Brain Function Abnormalities

Posted on: April 4th, 2017 by Neurohealth Associates

A new, easy-to-use EEG electrode set for the measurement of the electrical activity of the brain was developed in a recent study completed at the University of Eastern Finland. The solutions developed in the PhD study of Pasi Lepola, MSc, make it possible to attach the electrode set on the patient quickly, resulting in reliable results without any special treatment of the skin. As EEG measurements in emergency care are often performed in challenging conditions, the design of the electrode set pays particular attention to the reduction of electromagnetic interference from external sources.

This technology is vastly under-utilized because the skills and training it requires to correctly administer the testing is lacking. This recent development of a new electrode set makes it a little easier for emergency workers who will not have the same level of training as Dr. Bonesteel to test patients for brain abnormalities after a TBI, concussion, or other incident for example.

The bottom line is that these sorts of developments are good for the entire healthcare industry because it makes it easier for doctors, nurses, and emergency care workers to ascertain neurological disorders. That being said it is still better to be tested by a trained professional such as Dr. Bonesteel or one of our other trained professionals at NeuroHealth Associates.

What Clients Say About Us


Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
