fNIRS made easy


FNIRS device

Brite23 is a lightweight, user-friendly and plug-and-play device with no set-up time. It works with multichannel LED’s, giving you continuous and real-time feedback in our data analysis software that is delivered with the system. 
Initially, the Brite was developed to measure the effect of cognitive interventions using portable and user-friendly fNIRS. With the Brite23 we enable you to monitor brain activity without the use of large intimidating scanners. The Brite research package makes monitoring oxygenation easy and accessible. Hyperscanning (monitoring multiple subjects at the same time) can be easily done, while our software enables you to combine different NIRS devices within one data stream. The Brite23 enables you to place live events during your measurement and have complete physical freedom. The optodes are designed to be easily adjusted in height for optimal skin connection. 



Subjects are able to perform physical activities like walking, running and climbing while the device is connected to Bluetooth (up to 30 meters) to the laptop. For offline measurements, you can store up to 200 hours of data.
The Brite also perfectly complements with our other portable NIRS devices e.g. for measures muscle oxygenation. This makes it the most suited fNIRS device for athletes on the market. The soft neoprene head-cap and the portability of the system make monitoring the brain oxygenation status of elderly, children and vulnerable patients especially safe and easy.
Main applications can be found in brain oxygenation monitoring, sports science, functional studies, cerebral studies, and hyper-scanning.


The near infrared spectroscopy technique


how it works

Optical oximetry and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in particular is a tool for assessing the oxygenation status and hemodynamics of various organs, e.g. muscle and brain non-invasively. It relies mainly on two characteristics of human tissue. Firstly, the relative transparency of tissue for light in the NIR range, and secondly on the oxygenation dependent light absorbance of hemoglobin. Read more >
