About this product

Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is an optical, noninvasive, continuous and regional brain imaging technique. It is relative simple, low weight and portable and can be used in real life settings. The technique is a spectroscopic method that uses the near-infrared light between 600-1000 nm. Typical applications include medical diagnostics, pharmaceutical, as well as research in functional neuroimaging, sports medicine & science, elite sports training, ergonomics, rehabilitation, neonatal research, brain computer interface, urology (bladder contraction), and neurology (neurovascular coupling). In the FOCOM project Artinis Medical Systems’ NIRS technology is used for monitoring cognitive processes in food preference, motivation and liking and for cognitive testing.
