Bittium BrainStatus™ Wireless EEG Amplifier

A unique solution for critical care EEG, designed for emergency, acute and intensive care use. Apart from cutting-edge remote monitoring capabilities, the BrainStatus features an easy to use disposable one-piece electrode. 

Bittium BrainStatus

Bittium BrainStatus is a wireless compact electroencephalography (EEG) amplifier, which is used together with a disposable easy and quick to wear Bittium BrainStatus electrode headband for diagnosing patients with altered mental status like status epilepticus. 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 electrode, device and software have medical device approval in Europe. Brainstatus electrode is patented in EU and in the US.

EEG Has Never Been this Easy

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 prepping the patient's skin in any way or to use any additional 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 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 fast 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.

Key Facts

Very easy electrode setup, EEG readings in a couple of minutes.

Universal cable set with connectivity to all major EEG devices.

Hygienic single-pack with usage instructions.


Bittium BrainStatus electrode, device and software together form a solution for easy EEG for non-EEG professionals. Windows 10 based software supports the Bittium BrainStatus electrode and also EEG with standard electrodes.

Software is designed for touch panels making it easy and intuitive for nursing staff and other users not familiar with EEG devices and software. However, it has all standard features EEG technicians and neurophysiologists expect, such as different EEG montages, EEG filtering, commenting, and split screen EEG review while recording. 

Software records EEG locally and simultaneously uploads data to network file server (or optional cloud) so that the same EEG can be reviewed from other EEG workstations throughout the hospital. Cloud solution expands availability outside the hospital and can be extended with the Cerenion C-Trend analysis as well as parameters such as Burst Suppression Ratio (BSR), amplitude EEG (aEEG) and Alpha/Delta Ratio (ADR).

Bittium BrainStatus - the Fastest Way to Get EEG from an Unconcious Patient

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. The patient's condition and treatment decisions must be assessed based on the comprehensive EEG measurement and made by a qualified physician.

Application Areas
