Summary: Zeto is a medical technology startup transformin
g the way EEG (Electroencephalography) is done in hospitals. We are solving a problem that has remained unsolved since EEG was invented in 1924, i.e., an archaic, tedious approach that consumes time, requires a trained operator and puts the patient through a poor experience. Due to the scarcity of trained operators and this outdated process, EEG is unavailable in most hospitals, ERs and in many countries.
Zeto’s Instant EEG Platform (zEEG) provides a zero-prep, wireless, dry electrode headset that can be used to perform a routine or urgent EEG anywhere without the need for a technician. Data is immediately streamed to a secure cloud platform that provides live display. zEEG also provides tools for analysis and optional remote interpretation by neurologists. So easy to use, zEEG will offer more functionality than currently available EEG systems, while improving the top line. Zeto is supported by the Epilepsy Foundation and has received strong interest from large hospital and physician customers alike. Democratizing EEG with such a seamless Data+AI platform opens significant opportunities for conditions such as Epilepsy, Stroke, Concussion, PTSD and Sleep disorders.
Need: Clinical EEG is just as arduous to do today as when it was first performed in 1924. A trained technician measures the head, marks electrode locations, abrades the skin, and applies paste and electrodes to the scalp, eventually tethering the patient to a box with wires. This procedure consumes time, requires technicians who need to be perpetually on call and puts the patients through a needlessly poor experience. The scarcity of technicians makes the problem worse, even unfeasible in many Hospitals, Emergency Rooms and other Outpatient settings. Essential features such as easy data sharing and remote interpretation remain unavailable.
Value: For hospitals and clinics worldwide, Zeto offers a turnkey solution for Routine EEG tests. Unlike competitors, Zeto provides lower cost and faster turn around time to clinics, extraordinary convenience to operators and a better experience to patients. Zeto makes EEG available to facilities that do not have access to trained EEG operators or neurologists. Zeto presents the new way of collecting brainwaves, extracting valuable information and treating neurological conditions better.
