BrainScope Company, Inc. is a medical neurotechnology company developing a new generation of portable, simple-to-use, non-invasive instruments to rapidly, and objectively assess brain function at the initial point of care. Its goal is to provide medical professionals with new, rapid, effective analysis tools to assist in the assessment of brain function.

BrainScope has focused on optimizing analysis of brain electrical signals to enhance detection and assessment of changes in brain function. The company's initial focus is the development of a device for military use, to aid in detection and assessment of Traumatic Brain Injury using an objective scale. Its technology in development is based on the premise that the brain is an organ with function exhibited primarily by electrical activity. All of the brain's activity, whether reflexive, automatic, unconscious or conscious, is electro-chemical in nature, and has mathematically predictable electrical correlates.
