The M3BA is a wireless architecture for scalable and simultaneous acquisition of Electroencephalogram (EEG), functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), Accelerometer, and other biosignals. Its miniaturization and customization provides an infrastructure for neuroimaging, monitoring and Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) outside of the laboratory and in the real world. The M3BA is fully stand alone and can be integrated into any kind of head gear and has been used in multiple research collaborations across the world. It is currently being adopted for use in medical applications, and available as OEM device, see further info below.
