An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in the brain using small, flat metal discs (electrodes) attached to the scalp. The electrical impulses generated by the brain cells to communicate with one another are observed in the form of wavy lines on an EEG recorder. The wireless headsets that use EEG techniques are called wireless EEG headsets. These are one of the main diagnostics devices for epilepsy, and also play a pivotal role in diagnosing other brain disorders. The EEG technique used in these headsets is typically noninvasive, with the electrodes placed along the scalp, although invasive electrodes are sometimes used in specific applications. Wireless EEG headsets measure voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current within the neurons of the brain, leading to accurate diagnosis.
The use of brain computer interface (BCI) devices in research and applications has increased significantly in the recent years. The wireless EEG headsets market is driven by rise in concerns of the consumer towards healthcare and the advancement in video games controlled by EEG. Increase in demand for immediate justice using lie detectors and high investments by WHO and other healthcare organizations for accurate disease diagnosis also fuel the market growth. However, unavailability of the headsets in economically poor areas due to lack of proper arrangements and high operating costs restrict this growth, thus limiting their usage to only economically stable areas. Despite this, there is a vast opportunity for the expansion of the market in the Asia-Pacific and LAMEA regions due to shortage of developers and availability of high capital investments.
