Under the framework of Brain-Computer Interfaces, Naxon is a company that works with portable EEG technology for the development of practical tools for research purposes, innovative applications within Medicine, Clinical Psychology (Neurofeedback), Sleep and Well-being, as well as mind-controlled hardware and software technology (such us in Gaming).
There are multiple health problems linked to the brain and neurocognitive diagnosis that must currently be evaluated through expensive equipment and/or in specialized centers. This situation limits the population’s access to diagnostic studies to treat diseases or brain disorders in time, delaying treatments that can improve the quality of life.
Additionally, there are many cases of physical impairments related to brain problems that generate limitations in the normal adaptation of the person to the environment. The same technology that allows to solve these difficulties and improve medical diagnosis can expand the accessibility and control of the environment of people with physical difficulties, and also in people without medical pathologies in various areas such as hardware control and the use of virtual reality.
In recent years, portable low-cost electroencephalography (EEG) devices have been developed with wireless connectivity, confortable and easy to install, which can be used extensively by medical, clinical and professional centers to study certain patterns and perform diagnoses and treatments, as well as by different users for mind-controlled applications. In addition to medical centers or clinics, it can also be used in other environments such as in schools with children for performance evaluation and for support in various psychological assessments.
Under the concept of Brain-Computer Interface (BCI), Naxon seeks to use EEG equipment to obtain neuronal information based on brain waves, which will be recorded in a software and data platform, which will have tools for analysis and assistance in diagnosis and treatment. We intend to lay the foundations for using big data and machine learning techniques, so that pattern analysis can be performed to improve professional assistance in diagnostics and treatment, as well as generating applications for mind-controlled hardware and software. The platform will be available in a Software-as-a-Service format.
Each problem area has its particularity and requires a specific work. The first phase of the initiative is in process of development and will provide a practical and useful tool for researchers in the fields of Neuroscience, Psychology and related areas interested in exploring the possibilities of portable EEG devices for academic and development purposes. In parallel, the second phase is under development through prototype testing and laboratory tests, to develop a next generation innovative tool for health professionals for their clinical work.
