The secondment of Dr. Lars Matthäus (partner EEM, Industry, Berlin, Germany) takes place from February 1st until March 31st 2016 at BIND-UdA (Academia, Chieti, Italy). During his secondment, Dr. Lars Matthäus joins Dr. Frank Zanow (partner EEM). Dr. Matthäus will support the validation of the ANDREA prototype in athletes (WP6, BIND-UdA) and of the software for the correction of artifacts in dry EEG signals (WP8, BIND-UdA). He will contribute with knowledge about industrial production of electronic components for biomedical devices, while gaining insights in sports EEG applications. He will analyze the application of dry electrode systems in realistic scenarios in order to identify current prototype limitations and requirements for further improvements of hardware and software components.
