Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) can cause prolonged or permanent injuries if left undetected and ignored. It is therefore of great interest to lower the threshold for diagnosis of individuals with mTBI injury. We report on the development of a prototype of a portable quantified EEG system intended for inthe-field mTBI diagnostics. The 32-electrode system is fully battery driven, is interfaced with a control unit being part of a telemedicine care system. All electrodes are individually configurable sot that they can be used for wet or dry qEEG electrodes. All electrodes can also be individually configured to allow Trans-Cranial Current Stimulation (tCS) sessions in DC, AC or other current supply modalities. The system has been functionality tested in end-to-end configurations where all control and measurement signals are forwarded between the head device on one side and the user interface and telemedicine system on the other. Tests confirm that the device can acquire and forward EEG data from 32 channels in parallel at target sensitivities up to 1 kHZ sampling frequencies. Tests further confirm that all electrodes can be individually configured for DC or any alternating current waveform up to 1 kHz. Additional device clinical evaluation is planned.
