This project will develop a wireless, body-worn neurophysiological monitoring suite. The system comprises of multiple'patches'designed to cover the body for ECG, EEG and EMG acquisition along with auxiliary sensors for temperature and motion capture. The core of the Phase I project will focus on demonstrating the feasibility of the device for EEG and evoked applications due to the high technical challenge and stringent signal quality requirements compared to the'simpler'ECG and EMG modes. A prototype EEG system will be built that consists of a slim and unobtrusive patch covering the scalp positions Fp1, Fp2, C3, Cz, C4, O1, O2, A1 and A2. Novel sensor designs will be evaluated to enable high quality recordings through hair. A miniaturized electronics data acquisition system will be built that supports the 8 signal channels with a novel ultra-low power wireless protocol to allow enable live streaming over a 48 hour period while operating on a tiny coin cell. The end result of the Phase I project will be an evaluation device that demonstrates the key features of the neurophysiological monitoring suite.
