The Boston Neurofeedback Center is raising funds to launch the Boston Educational Assessment Team (BEAT), a small portable computing device that measures brain activity though an electroencephalogram(EEG) test. Analysts upload the EEG data onto a personal computer and use the information to detect whether the subject may have an attention deficit issue (ADHD) or learning disability.
The BEAT device could make testing students for ADHD and learning disabilities quick, easy and quantifiable. Boston Neurofeedback hopes to get FDA approval by the end of 2009. The BEAT is expected to be on the market in two years.
