Abstract
The development of portable functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) systems has been widely investigated for neurology (TBI/Epilepsy/Stroke) and psychiatry (ADD/Dementia) research and holds great opportunity for neurological injury prevention and rehabilitation in athletes and military personnel. However, widespread adoption of fNIRS has been precluded by systems’ weight, complexity, and cost. With focus on affordability, portability (weighs <150g), and comfort, our group has developed a 16-channel fNIRS headband with an accompanying phone application. Our wear-and-go design would help athletes and military personnel to easily provide fNIRS data during routine activities and facilitate big-data research to identify novel biomarkers related to neurological injury.
