Brain monitoring is the observation a recording of several brain parameters over time. The most common brain monitoring procedure is electroencephalography (EEG). It is the recording of electrical activity of brain along the scalp. Voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current flows within the neurons of the brain are measured in EEG. Multiple electrodes are placed on the scalp and the brains spontaneous electrical activity is recorded over a short duration of time.
EEG is widely used to diagnose epilepsy, sleep disorders, brain death, and encephalopathy. Intracranial pressure monitors are used to record the activity of brain of patients suffering from severe traumatic brain injury. The most widely used method to measure intracranial pressure is by inserting a catheter into the cranium. EEG is used in hospitals, laboratories, clinics and in home settings.
The global brain monitoring devices market is driven by the rise in number of incidences of brain disorders, and ageing demographic. However, the market is constrained due to the lack of skilled personnel to handle monitoring devices and uncertain reimbursement policies.
The global brain monitoring devices market has been segmented by product type: 8-channel EEG, 21-channel EEG, 25-channel EEG, 32-channel EEG, 40-channel EEG and multi-channel EEG; by modality: portable EEG devices and fixed devices and by end user: hospitals and diagnostic centres.
The global brain monitoring devices market has been geographically segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and North Africa (MENA), North America, and Rest of the World, with North America dominating the market. Asia Pacific is also an emerging market which has a scope for growth and can potentially dominate the market in the future.
The use of EEGs in continuous neurological disease monitoring has opened growth opportunities for brain monitoring devices globally. The major companies dominating the market with its products, services and continuous product developments are Elekta A.B., Natus Medical, Neurosoft Limited, Cadwell Laboratories, BrainScope Company, Bio-Signal Group, Neurowave Systems and others. However, the global brain monitoring market is challenged by pricing pressure and competition.
