Kappametrics Inc. is a medical technology company specialized in the development of innovative solutions to the problems of data acquisition in functional MRI environments. It was established in 2004 as a spin-out company from Unilever. The company's goal is to create an EEG imaging technology that can be used in conjunction with fMRI for better clinical diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from chronic neurologic disease.

Kappametrics has developed a revolutionary technology which is able to capture electroencephalography (EEG) data concurrently with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The f-EEG(TM) technology is based on the concept of 'reference loops', a breakthrough concept that enables EEG data to be collected simultaneously with functional MRI. The 'reference loop' technology provides 'direct noise cancellation' to remove noise at the source, and acquire an EEG signal that is largely unaffected by the interference induced by functional MRI scanner and enables the real-time collection of physiologic EEG data during fMRI scans.

Kappametrics has partnership with Cortech Solutions, Inc.
