Shower or bathe thoroughly the night before testing, as bathing and showering are not permitted until the test is complete. DO NOT USE ANY HAIR STYLING PRODUCTS INCLUDING CONDITIONERS, GELS, SPRAYS, MOUSSE OR OILS. HAIR PIECES, EXTENSIONS AND BRAIDS MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE SCALP PRIOR TO TESTING. Wear a front opening shirt with zippers or buttons so you can easily change clothes throughout the test.
An EEG technician will arrive at your home or physician’s office to set-up and test the video EEG monitoring equipment. Our technicians pass rigorous background checks and are highly trained and committed to your health and well-being.
The technician will apply EEG electrodes to your head with a paste that is made specifically for this type of testing. The wires transmit the electrical signals from your brain to the recording device in the harness. The electrodes are safe and are not invasive in any manner.
You will also be given a camera and a laptop computer as part of the video EEG monitoring service.
