A complete mobile electroencephalogram (EEG) system based on a novel, flexible dry electrode is presented. The wireless device features 32-channels in a soft, adjustable headset. Integrated electronics enable high resolution (24-bit, 250 samples/sec) acquisition electronics and can acquire operate for more than four hours on a single AAA battery. The system weighs only 140 g and is specifically optimized for ease of use. After training users can self-don the headset in around three minutes. Test data on multiple subjects with simultaneously acquired EEGs from a traditional wet, wired system show a very high degree of signal correlation in AEP and P300 tasks.
