Biopac Systems Inc. FNIR100A-W Wireless fNIR Optical Brain Imaging
The wireless fNIR100A-W is a stand-alone functional brain imaging system that includes a control unit and sensor for continuous fNIR spectroscopy (NIRS), plus COBI control unit software and fNIRSOFT Standard analysis software to view the data in real time and perform post acquisition analysis.
This wireless fNIR unit works with the 2-CH pediatric sensor (RXFNIR-PED
) or the 4-CH Adult Sensor (RXFNIR-4
)—system includes one sensor which should be specified when ordering.
fNIR is an optical imaging technology that measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. The subject wears a sensor on the forehead that includes an IR light source and detectors that are mounted in a flexible band. This fNIR sensor detects the oxygen levels in the prefrontal cortex and provides values for oxy-hemoglobin and deoxygenated hemoglobin in real time. It provides a continuous and real-time display of the oxygen changes as the subject performs different tasks, and is comfortable to wear for prolonged periods of time.
The wireless fNIR100W provides users with an in-lab assessment of cognitive function. It eliminates a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. The subject can sit in front of a computer and take a test or perform mobile tasks. It integrates with stimulus presentation systems and BIOPAC’s virtual reality products. The wireless nature of the fNIR100A-W device enables the user to move freely within range of the PC receiving the signal.
The fNIR data combines with other physiological variables such as ECG, respiration, cardiac output, blood pressure, electrodermal activity and stimulus response markers. AcqKnowledge software provides automated analysis tools for event related potentials and ensemble averaging. Combining the fNIR data with the other physiological signals provides researchers with a detailed subject assessment.
fNIR100A-W is suitable for a wide range of applications: Human Performance Assessment, Depth of Anesthesia Monitoring, Brain Computer Interface, Virtual Reality, Neurorehabilitation, Autism, and Credibility Assessment (lie detection).
