Brain Scientific Selected as Finalist for 2020 Epilepsy Foundation Shark Tank Competition

NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Brain Scientific Inc. (OTCQB:BRSF) (“Brain Scientific” or “Company”), a medical device and technology company offering products and solutions related to the brain including neurology, AI, and machine learning, announced today that its minimally invasive graphene electrode was selected as a finalist at the 2020 Epilepsy Foundation Shark Tank Competition.

The Epilepsy Foundation’s Shark Tank Competition is an initiative to advance innovative ideas in epilepsy treatment and care. The winners of the 2020 Shark Tank Competition will receive international recognition and compete for awards to support the development and commercialization of an important new product, technology, or therapeutic concept to help people with epilepsy.

Brain Scientific’s minimally-invasive graphene electrode idea was one of five finalists selected to present at the Shark Tank Competition. The Company is developing subcutaneous graphene electrode implants and graphene electrodes printed by 3D printers on the scalp that connect to a micro EEG signal processor to provide continuous seizure monitoring and uninterrupted data collection. The micro EEG signal processor is the size of a stamp and is printed by 3D technology on the scalp near the ear for maximum comfort. The goal of this disruptive technology will be to improve the quality of life for epilepsy patients and to offer health care providers an effective and novel monitoring tool. Brain Scientific has collaborated with GrapheneCA to make this project a reality.

“We are extremely proud of having our under-the-skin EEG implant be recognized by the Shark Tank Competition,” said Boris Goldstein, Chairman of the Board. “Epilepsy as a whole is in dire need of a low cost and effective monitoring and data collection approach. Our technology aims to liberate epilepsy patients from having to waste time in hospital monitoring units.”

The five finalists, including Dr. Goldstein on behalf of the Company, will present their discoveries at the Pipeline Conference, held virtually on August 27. Brain Scientific’s technology utilizes printed electrodes and connectors with on-the-scalp micro EEG processor, which increases the mobility of the technology.
