iMediSync announced on the 7th that ‘iSyncWave’, an EEG measuring device, was introduced to the ‘visiting mobile medical checkup system’ hosted by Busan Metropolitan City and implemented at Busan National University Hospital from this month.
Visiting mobile medical checkup system is also called a ‘Door to Door medical health service.’ It is explained that this project was prepared for an increase in the demand for public health services from the medically vulnerable class due to the increase in the elderly population and single-person households with the elderly in Busan. A medical bus transformed from an electrical bus is equipped with portable ultrasound, X-ray, and EEG and professional medical staff provide medical services. It was implemented for the first time in the country.
iSyncWave is the first EEG measuring device that has been FDA 510k cleared in Korea. It is in the shape of a helmet with dry electrodes. It does not require electrode gel, so the participants do not need to wash their heads after the measurement.
EEG analysis software that is included in iSyncWave is associated with the Big-data based cloud automatic analysis system.
Through the artificial intelligence (AI) amnestic mild cognitive impairment screening and diagnosis auxiliary test selected as a new medical technology for deferred evaluation, it can detect the memory-decreasing mild cognitive impairment, the pre-stage of dementia, within 10 minutes. In addition, it provides early prediction and screening services for various brain diseases such as those at high risk for depression.
The participant can check the result with their own smart phones. If the effectiveness is verified through the pilot project, it is expected that the service will be expanded nationwide in the future. Door-to-door medical health services will continue until the end of this year.
