dc.description.abstractHow can brain testing be more accessible to prevent undiagnosed and untreated brain injuries? In researching solutions, the Muse 2 and Oculus Quest 2 were examined to establish whether they could detect baseline brainwave patterns, which they successfully did. While compact electroencephalogram (EEG) devices exist, currently a health professional is necessary to administer the Vestibular Ocular Motor Screening (VOMS) test and EEG scan and analyze the results. From this research, a self-administering headset prototype was designed and built with the EEG of the Muse and the VR technology of the Oculus to demonstrate the device could be feasibly developed. One of the many uses for quick EEG tests would be to detect concussions in athletes mid-game to minimize brain injuries. 99% of deceased NFL players showed chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), which is a degenerative brain disease associated with head trauma. When a health incident occurs, this device allows athletes to quickly assess whether it is safe for them to continue playing or whether they should seek further medical attention. Because this new design combines VOMS testing with EEG scanning, there are far more diverse applications and analytical capabilities than a VOMS test or compact EEG scan individually.
