Baslyne utilizes the most advanced medical technology (EEG) to help professionals in Medical Clinics, Veterans, First Responders, Athletic Trainers, and others to gather objective “real-time” information on brain performance. Regular objective measurements of Brain Health have largely been elusive to most people. In many cases, access to services and technology to measure brain performance have been inconvenient cost-prohibitive if available at all.
Baslyne is changing this paradigm by making a portable FDA cleared medical device accessible to the general public at a low cost. The device is a qEEG with P300 and produces objective data used by the medical community for over 30 years. The key to managing and monitoring your brain performance is to measure it over time to identify changes in your brain’s performance including cognition. This applies to brain performance changes as you age and as well as after a head injury.
PANORAMIC: An EEG brain scan presents information covering multiple views of the brain including traditional tests in conjunction with evoked response.
FAST: Developed for a quick and easy way to establish a “real-time” baseline for brain performance while testing can be done in minutes.
PORTABLE: Baslyne utilizes EEG systems that feature a portable carry case so tests can easily be completed remotely, saving time and expense.
COLLABORATIVE: Supported by a community of researchers and physicians, Baslyne continues to facilitate continuous improvements of protocols and practices.
Research is becoming clear: concussion is multifaceted and requires a variety of assessments, Americans fear Alzheimer’s more than any other disease, and many other concerns facing society regarding brain health, brain wellness, and behavioral health.
Living an active lifestyle is an important part of many people’s lives, several carry the risk of concussion. Concussions are multifaceted and require a variety of assessments. Currently, a brain's state is assessed through standard performance, subjective methods. However, performance and symptoms can normalize before the brain has healed. This health risk increases when a brain injury is not fully recovered, displaying electrophysiological deficits, and activity resumes prematurely. But how does a physician know when the brain is fully healed, much less know when a concussive event occurred?
As personalized health is one of the fastest-growing specialties worldwide, the aspirations focused on quality-of-life management are to keep physical and mental functioning high throughout life. Well versed in therapies to manage, and age-related mental declines (declines that are otherwise considered to be a part of normal aging), many are dissatisfied with the limited set of tools available for managing these ailments. Currently, there is a need for a low cost, easy-to-use and reliable in-office device to objectively monitor brain function longitudinally, where past reports can be viewed against those over various points in the aging process.
Of the 500 million primary-care office visits yearly in the United States, an estimated 1 in 8 are for mental disorders, including depression, ADHD, anxiety, and addiction. Anxiety is not a simple diagnosis as it takes many forms and can also accompany other medical conditions. Laboratory tests are not very helpful when it comes to diagnosing depression. In fact, talking with the patient may be the most important diagnostic tool the doctor has. Although the hallmark of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is having experienced or witnessed a traumatic event, there are a variety of distressing symptoms that someone with PTSD will experience after the event. Understanding that some of these symptoms may overlap with other mental health conditions and it is important that a thorough evaluation is done to make sure the diagnosis of PTSD is accurate.
Brain wave analysis allows one to capture a unique image through and objective measurement of an individual's brain activity and the importance of a baseline scan is to serve as a comparison tool when assessing the condition of the most current brain activity following a concussive event that compliments standard protocol assessments. P300 voltage and physical reaction time correlate with symptomatic concussive events and following a concussive impact incident, or if experiencing symptoms of a brain injury, a brain scan can compare data of the most current brain activity against their original baseline scan, the most "normal" brain activity. Electrical responses to sound and physical reaction time are affected by a concussion and the normalization of these measures correlates with symptomatic recovery.
P300 brain potential is sensitive to Alzheimer’s disease processes during its early stages, and can aid in the diagnosis of dementia and may help in the assessment of early Alzheimer’s disease, finding potential markers of Alzheimer’s years before symptom onset. Through routine EEG brain scans, detection in decreasing P300 amplitude can indicate a cognitive decline, and intervention can be administered if the noticeable change is worry-some.
EEG-related technologies can provide a complementary view of brain function alongside standard screenings and assessments measuring behavioral health brain physiology. EEG studies have found a link between hemispheric asymmetry in frontal regions of the cortex and many behavioral and mental health symptoms, including ADHD, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. P300 amplitude and speed are correlated with selective attention. Frontal asymmetries are correlated with depression and anxiety. Central frequency states are correlated with cortical stimulation and attention disorders. Many measurements (P300 latencies, P300 amplitudes, reaction times, frequency states, coherence) correlated significantly with important preventative care and heart-function markers.
