Bittium BrainStatus™

Bittium BrainStatus is a new type of EEG electrode set solution to the diagnostics problems in the field use and emergency room applications. The EEG electrode set is disposable and, unlike traditional headbands, it is placed on the hairless areas of the patient's head, which makes proper placement easier and faster.


Bittium BrainStatus is a wireless compact EEG amplifier, which is used together with a disposable easy and quick to wear Bittium BrainStatus electrode headband for example to diagnose epileptic seizures and brain stroke. Bittium BrainStatus enables quick measurement in field conditions as well as in hospitals, thus making the treatment process of the patient faster. Bittium BrainStatus can be used for wireless real-time remote EEG monitoring or data can be recorded to the device memory.

Bittium BrainStatus wireless EEG-monitoring device has medical device approval in Europe.

Key Advantages

Studies carried out at Kuopio University Hospital have shown that Bittium BrainStatus EEG electrode set enables reliable quick diagnostics. The electrode set significantly speeds up the recording process because there is no need for any special pre-treatment of the patient´s skin in any way or to use any separate gels. As the Bittium BrainStatus headband is flexible and solid, the electrodes get automatically placed in their correct places. Furthermore, there is no need to move the patient´s head when putting on the forehead EEG electrode set, which is especially important in patients possibly suffering from a neck or skull injury.

Due to the fact that the electrode set is easy and fast to use, it is particularly well-suited to be used in emergency care, in ambulances and even in field conditions. Thanks to the material of the electrode set, there is no need to remove it for computer tomography scans.

The use of EEG recordings in emergency care will benefit many patients. For instance, EEG recordings can be used in emergency, intensive and primary care to diagnose a variety of brain electrical activity disorders associated, for example, with head trauma, serious brain injury, cerebral infarction, cerebral hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, states of poisoning and atypical altered states of consciousness.

In many cases, an acutely performed EEG recording and the start of a proper treatment will significantly reduce the need for aftercare and rehabilitation. This, in turn, will drastically improve the cost-effectiveness of the treatment chain.

Bittium BrainStatus™ with C-Trend™ - The Next Generation of Brain Monitoring for Intensive Care

Cerenion C-Trend

Bittium BrainStatus together with Cerenion C-Trend is the world's first practical method for measuring the brain function of intensive care patients. C-Trend combines standard EEG-measurement with advanced machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence. Bittium BrainStatus is easy to set up and together with the C-Trend Index it supports continuous monitoring and allows an at-a-glance view to brain activity over long monitoring periods.


C-Trend Index

The C-Trend Index provides reliable information based on the brain's slow-wave activity seen during sedation.

The health of the brain is distilled from a complex EEG waveform plot to an objective and easy to interpret index, ranging from 0 to 100. Values higher than 80 are considered to be normal for sedated patients.

Application Areas*

Hypoxic brain injury after cardiac arrest: Predicting the neurological outcome.

Deep anesthesia status epilepticus treatments: Monitoring burst suppression ratio (BSR).

Nonconvulsive status epilepticus: Detecting changes in the EEG activity which might refer to epileptic seizures.

Subarachnoid hemorrhage: Detecting changes in the EEG activity which might refer to brain hypoxia.
