Partner: BIND-UdA || 16th Febraury 2016

On 16 February 2016,  during the Open Day at the University “G. d’Annunzio” of Chieti-Pescara, Prof. Comani presented the ANDREA Project to a group of about 100 students (16-18 years old) from scientific, technical and classical high schools of the Abruzzi region (Italy).   Prof. Comani presented the goals of the ANDREA project, how it is implemented, and the potential medical and social impact of the use of dry electrodes for electroencephalographic monitoring in adults. Prof. Comani also presented the preliminary results obtained so far through simple graphical images that compared the project’s outcome with the 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.
