WAVI

[ wah-vee ]

WAVi is a brain measurement platform that provides information about the brain’s health using a very detailed, specialized type of electroencephalogram (EEG) technology to record brain activity.

Our brain cells are always active, talking to each other through electrical impulses, even during sleep. This study allows us to look at neural pathways and look for signs of early cognitive decline.

Evaluating performance and changes in brain activity can be used to help provide more information on common conditions like:

Brain strength

Brain speed

ADHD

Anxiety

Depression

Cognitive declines, such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease

WAVi and Brain Function: The WAVi headset is a portable EEG scanner that allows us to measure brain function in real-time. The WAVi headset measures your brain waves (EEG) while you perform different tasks. Using established benchmarks by age, the brain scans can provide information about:

Brain activity

Processing power

Auditory and reaction time

Mood

Focus and attention

BLI offers on-site WAVI Scans and Analysis through our Brain Health Services.

Origin

Headquartered out of Nobel Laureate Tom Cech’s Biofrontiers Institute at the University of Colorado, WAVi Research has created and analyzed data sets that include pre-symptom Alzheimer’s, a 6-year longitudinal concussion study on NCAA athletes, studies on hearing loss and mental function, correlations between heart and brain health, and the effects of interventions on brain performance, including the effects of ADHD medication. Recently, WAVi has been awarded an NIH grant to study acute pain and opioid abuse. WAVi also helps promote its clinicians through open research collaborations made available by the WAVi cloud application.
