Implantable Neurorecording Sensing System: Wireless Transmission of Measurements

Seizure detection and monitoring are generally carried out by electroencephalogram (EEG) instrumentation with electrodes located on the scalp. For 24 h monitoring, it is possible to use an EEG recorder brought by the patient positioned on a bed or normally moving in the hospital and doing everything. This paper presents findings in the design of a neurocase for hosting a neurorecording system and its conformity to IEEE 24451 limited to wireless aspects related to data transmission.

The recording system also provides for suppressing spikes and surges in EEG signals since these signals can be considered as a series of voltages with a relationship with space and time. Nanotechnology solutions relative to materials have been illustrated. Moreover, a stress simulation has been also performed in order to verify the sustainability of the design. The studied system considers the implementation of the neurorecording system including, design of circuital electronic components and thermoelectric power board supply, and 3-D package.
