Quality you can feel, the technology you can trust.
waveguard original is the cap solution for EEG measurements compatible with fMRI, MEG and TMS systems. Use of active shielding guarantees performance in even the most demanding environments.
The waveguard original EEG cap is the latest and most advanced cap available at this moment. All waveguard original caps are very lightweight through the use of very thin electrode wires, and the flexible, breathing cap fabric enables comfortable recordings even over a longer period of time.
Simultaneous EEG recordings with TMS, MEG or fMRI:
The easy-to-apply EEG caps are available in different configurations (standard EEG as well as TMS, MEG and fMRI compatible) and layouts, ranging from a clinical montage (e.g., for routine EEG) to specialized high-density electrode configurations.
Shielded caps for the purest data streams:
The option to use shielded wires makes the cap less susceptible to outside noise. Due to the special design of the electrodes, and the superb quality of the sintered Ag/AgCl electrode material the cap can be applied easily and fast, and provide the very best signal quality.
Features and benefits:
- Most suitable cap for AC and DC coupled recordings in research and clinical settings. Good signals even in (very) slow potentials, e.g. frequency range < 0.5 Hz.
- High-quality EEG signals
- Comfortable fit
- Several capsizes to cover a large variety of head circumferences
- Quick application
- Easy to clean
- Up to 256 electrodes
- Available in 10-20 and equidistant layouts
- Optimized shape of electrodes minimizes induction type artifacts (e.g.fMRI,TMS)
- All caps are compatible with TMS
- Connects to any EEG system
- Active shielding option
- 1-year warranty
- Custom layouts are available upon request
High-quality EEG signals:
Sintered Ag/AgCl provide the best EEG signal quality of all electrode materials, and are maintenance-free (no need for re-chloride).
The waveguard original EEG electrode cap is applied by choosing an appropriate size and fitting it over the subject's head. The cap is secured by using either the included chin strap or chin-cap, or by using the optional chest belt. Contact between the waveguard original electrodes and the subject's head is made by using conductive gel. The gel is applied via a syringe with a blunt needle, or with a gel dispenser. The small, high-quality, Sintered Silver/Silver Chloride electrodes allow for very fast application times.
Active shielding option:
By using a shielded waveguard original cap the user is able to record high-quality EEG in conditions where conventional electrode systems would not work. For instance, when doing EEG/ERP research using a portable ERP system without having access to shielded rooms. In these cases, the active shielding of the electrode leads will continuously deliver you with good-quality data and protect it from the 50/60 Hz environmental noise. Moreover, active shielding protects data in situations when the subject is physically active. Active shielding works only when both the EEG amplifier and the cap are shielded.
Key benefits of active shielding:
• Movement of electrode cables do not interfere with EEG recording
• Good signals, even when your impedances are high
• 50/60 Hz environmental noise is shielded
• No need for expensive and fragile pre-amplifiers at the cap
Connects to any EEG system:
waveguard original caps are equipped with special connectors to make connecting and disconnecting to EEG headboxes quick and easy. In case the waveguard original cap connector does not fit directly to the EEG headbox it can be connected by one of our adapters. The installation is straightforward with minimal effort.
Comfortable fit, few sizes:
The soft fabric and rubber electrode housing provide a comfortable fit on the head, even for extended recording times. Each waveguard original is delivered with a chin strap and a chin cap; either can be used as preferred. An optional chest belt is available to allow fastening of the cap without using the chin area. The elastic CoolmaxTM fabric allows covering a wide range of head circumferences. The medium waveguard original cap fits approximately 65% of the population aged 10 or older. Optimized shape of electrodes minimizes induction type artifacts (e.g.fMRI,TMS).
Compatibility with TMS:
All waveguard EEG electrode caps are compatible with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. EEG can be recorded during the TMS experiment, with very high quality and short artefact recovery times.
Two electrode ring options:
This important part of an EEG cap now comes in two versions: the 16 mm wide standard type, which is fine for inter-electrode distances of down to ca. 35 mm, and the 13 mm small type, which is especially suited for high-density caps with 128 or more channels, in baby caps with 32 or more channels, and in all caps used in neonates. All waveguard original caps with 128 or more channels are now by default equipped with the small rings. But since the electrode rings can easily be replaced by the user as well, we made them available as a separate item - please contact our local distributor or one of our offices in case you would like to have more information about the new high-density rings or you are interested in purchasing them.
