BrainScope® is a Bethesda, MD based medical neurotechnology company that is pioneering the assessment of traumatic brain injury (TBI), including concussion. The company’s innovative BrainScope One system is an easy-to-use, non-invasive, hand-held platform that empowers clinicians to quickly make accurate head injury assessments at the point-of-care.
Head Injury Assessment and Sites of Care
Over 5.7 million traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) happen each year in the U.S., of which approximately 4.8 million visit the Emergency Department (ED).
These injuries are difficult to assess with current clinical criteria, resulting in CT “overscanning.”
82% of patients presenting to the ED with symptoms of a TBI receive a Head CT, of which 91% are negative for a “brain bleed.”
A CT Scan does not indicate presence or severity of concussion and often results in a concussed patient being discharged with little or no follow-up.
What is BrainScope One and How does it Work?
Electrical signals course through the brain and when someone has a brain injury these electrical signals (EEG) change and are different from those that would be present in an uninjured brain.
BrainScope One has been developed by comparing a head injured patient’s brain electrical activity (EEG) to a large database of patients with, and without, brain injury (over 7,000 evaluations) to determine the potential presence of a structural injury (or “brain bleed”) and their level of brain function impairment, (e.g. concussion)\
BrainScope One is the only FDA cleared device for assessment of the full spectrum of traumatic brain injury, from structural (brain bleeds) to functional (concussion).
BrainScope technology represents over 10 years of research, funded in part by Department of Defense Contracts, with 7 FDA Clearances and 26 peer-reviewed published clinical studies.
