Wyss Center Announces CE Mark for Its Brain Data Visualization Software, Epios Cloud

Share

The Wyss Center announced today the CE (Conformité Européenne) mark Class I medical device for its Epios Cloud software. Epios Cloud is a web-based application for the online storage, processing and review of neural signals, including the ultra-long-term data recorded by an emerging generation of devices for remote brain monitoring. Its novel features allow seamless navigation of datasets covering months and years while access through a web browser allows clinicians to access patient data anywhere and anytime.

With the flexibility to connect to brain - or other bio-signal - recording devices over the web, Epios Cloud provides insights on multiple long-term data sources enabling clinicians to develop bespoke analytics to support personalized clinical decision making.

Clinicians are increasingly seeking options for outpatient neural monitoring over weeks to months. In epilepsy, home-based monitoring of brain activity during everyday life will help characterize the type and number of seizures, improve diagnosis and pre-surgical planning, and help build personalized treatment plans.

“We developed Epios Cloud as we needed software that would track not only when seizures occur but also the biosignals linked to epilepsy events. Epios Cloud allows us to synchronize neural data with heart rate or movement information over months or years. It gives us a glimpse of what is really going on in the brain during every-day life. In the future, additional data streams could easily be integrated into the platform to support other clinical applications. Importantly, centralized data storage will allow a fundamental change in automated analysis of neural data, allowing artificial intelligence algorithms to learn on an ever-growing global data lake – the development of which is already underway.” said Aleksander Sobolewski, PhD, Wyss Center Neuroscientist.

While current electroencephalogram(EEG) software is primarily optimized for the review of neural recordings that last minutes to hours, Epios Cloud is poised for the transition to longer-term recordings of weeks to months. Clinicians can also annotate the data with real-life events and develop novel analytics to automatically present regions of interest to complement visual screening.

George Kouvas, MBA, Wyss Center’s Chief Technology Officer said: “Epios Cloud is set to reveal new insights about epilepsy in individual patients – paving the way for personalized therapies. Now that Epios Cloud is CE marked, we look forward to connecting it to more brain recording modalities and to bringing this innovative long-term brain monitoring platform to more clinical or outpatient settings across Europe and beyond. Epios Cloud also has potential for use in stroke rehabilitation as well as neuromodulation of brain circuits for mental health applications.”

Epios Cloud is medical device software of Safety Class A as per IEC 62304 and CE-marked as Class I as per the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC. Epios Cloud is intended for displaying and reviewing electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings made by EEG devices using scalp and sub-scalp electrodes, heart rate and accelerometer measurements. The device is intended to be used by qualified medical practitioners. CE marking indicates that a product has been assessed and deemed to meet European Union safety, health and environmental protection requirements.

Evasc Neurovascular is proud to announce the third generation of its eCLIPs™ device, the eCLIPs Bifurcation Flow Diverter. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20211019006102/en/ The third generation of Evasc's eCLIPs™ device, the eCLIPs Bifurcation Flow Diverter. The new device is classified as a flow diverter, with a leaf density of 35%, which is 60% higher than the existing eCLIPs devices. As a result, the new eCLIPs Bifurcation Flow Diverter does not require coiling and provides for the same unique neck bridging delivery. The new eCLIPs Bifurcation Flow Diverter can cover up to a 6mm neck length. The eCLIPs Bifurcation Flow Diverter also simplifies deployment with greatly reduced delivery times. “We’re excited to see the latest innovation in Evasc Neurovascular’s eCLIPs devices, which will lead to better outcomes for patients and remarkable device delivery time—usually within 10 minutes,” said Leif Sorensen, Neur

Breaking the Silence in Osteoporosis20.10.2021 07:00:00 CEST | Press release

A new international survey of 1,008 women with osteoporosis from six countries, launched on World Osteoporosis Day, reveals that while more than two-thirds (67%) of women over the age of 55 mostly understand what osteoporosis is and the potential negative impact of future fractures, 19% felt poorly informed at the time of the diagnosis.1 This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20211019005894/en/ The survey initiated by Theramex in cooperation with the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), was conducted in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Australia, and Brazil. It included 316 postmenopausal women over the age of 55 years and 315 premenopausal women (40-55 years) with osteoporosis (altogether 62% of the surveyed women). Of these women, osteoporosis was only diagnosed after a fracture in almost 60% of the cases. This survey highlights a gap in osteoporosis awareness, as one-fourth of the patients aged 55 years and ov
