A portable medical system for the early diagnosis and treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury

Abstract

Although Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is recognized as a major public health concern, there is currently no efficient method of fast and reliable detection of mild TBI at the point of need, where the injury has occurred. This paper addresses this problem by proposing a portable system for emergency TBI diagnosis and monitored personalized treatment based on quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) and High Definition transcranial Electrical Stimulation (HD-tES). The paper highlights three innovative elements of the proposed system: its architecture, communication framework, and diagnostic process for detecting TBI in emergency situations.
