This activity took place on 12 May 2015 within the framework of the Open Day at the University “G. d’Annunzio” of Chieti-Pescara, in the Chieti campus. Prof. Comani presented the ANDREA Project to a group of more than 200 students (16-18 years old) from several scientific, technical and classical high schools of the Abruzzi region (Italy).
Prof. Comani presented the goals of the ANDREA project and the impact of the dry electrodes from the social and medical points of view. The preliminary results obtained so far with a prototypal dry electrode cap system were presented through simple graphical images and compared with similar results obtained with commercial systems using wet electrodes.
The general impression was that the students were sensible to the topic and interested in these new technological developments. They understood the impact of the new device for the treatment of patients of different age and for other applications such as sport science. It was also clear that it would have been important to have a prototype to show to let them familiarize with EEG systems and advanced devices.
