Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, led a delegation of top Japanese businessmen, representing the largest companies in Japan, through an Israeli innovation exhibition showcasing breakthrough Israeli technologies. ElMindA was one of only five companies selected to present to Abe, the Japanese delegation and Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.  Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had this to say about his interaction with the BNA™ technology; “We just experienced, along with Prime Minister Netanyahu, the truly ground breaking technologies and  innovations that Israel is so proud of… I was very interested in a device [BNA™ by ElMindA] that can really tell us how the brain functions. Maybe this new technology could tell us what and how people think. If Japan were to be the first country to develop and utilize this technology, then maybe in our next summit meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu, Japan would have a competitive edge.”

ElMindA Selected to Present BNA™ to the Japanese Prime Minister at the Israeli Innovation Exhibition

      One month after announcing plans for a landmark effort to better understand the workings of the brain, President Obama received a first-hand look at a groundbreaking brain mapping and imaging technology that may be critical to achieving this ambitious goal and to helping detect and manage a host of brain-related diseases and conditions.   During a visit to the Israel National Museum with Prime Minister Netanyahu on  Thursday, March 21 , President Obama saw up-close six Israeli technology innovations as part of the “Israeli Technology for a Better World” exhibit hosted by Prime Minister Netanyahu. Among the technologies that were carefully selected by an expert panel to showcase Israel’s most transformational innovations was ElMindA’s Brain Network Activation or BNA™.   Developed in association with researchers at Ben-Gurion University and the Technion Institute of Technology, the BNA™ advanced imaging technology applies sophisticated signal processing and pattern recognition algorithms to 3-dimensional electrophysiological data gathered by multi-sensor electroencephalography or EEG equipment.  “We are absolutely thrilled that ElMindA’s brain mapping technology was chosen for this one-of-a-kind exhibit involving President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu,” said ElMindA CEO Ronen Gadot, who demonstrated the technology to the world leaders. “It is particularly exciting given the President’s recent announcement of the Brain Mapping Project in his State of the Union Address   and the relevance of our technology in helping improve scientific understanding of the brain.”  “Such information can be vital to making progress against a host of diseases and conditions including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and to improving the health and well-being for hundreds of millions of people throughout the globe,” Gadot added.

      LONDON (Alliance  News) – Electrical Geodesics Inc on Thursday said it has signed a two-year deal with ElMindA to provide its GES 400 systems to the US-Israeli company’s Brain Network Activation platform.  The BNA platform is an analysis system which received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration last year for the assessment of brain function in 14-to-24-year-olds.  Under the deal, Electrical Geodesics will supply and support customers of ElMindA who buy the BNA analysis system with its GES 400 dense array EEG systems on pre-determined terms. It did not provide financial details of the deal.  “We have worked with ElMindA over a number of years and are pleased that their research efforts have led to the BNA system receiving FDA clearance. ElMindA recognises the need for the precision dense array EEG provides to enable objective assessment of brain disorders and injuries,” said Electrical Geodesics Chief Executive Officer Don Tucker.

MORNINGSTAR: Electrical Geodesics Wins GES 400 Contract With ElMindA

       ElMindA, creator of the ground-breaking Brain Network Activation (BNA™) technology has been recognized once again for its innovative approach to neuroscience and management of brain disorders. The company was included on Fast Company’s annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies that ranks the top 50 companies that are radically changing an industry, consumer habits and assumptions. Not only was ElMindA honored on the Top 50 Worldwide list, but it also placed within the Top 10 Most Innovative companies in the Healthcare and Israel categories.   In August 2014, ElMindA announced that BNA™ was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the analysis of brain functional network activity, initially indicated for 14 to 24 year olds. ElMindA research showed, for the first time, the ability of BNA to map pain pathways in the brain and objectively and sensitively differentiate between a drug effect and a placebo effect on the brain – previously only possible by subjective measures.
