Colorado manufacturer FieldLine Inc. recently received a $250,000 grant through the Advanced Industries Accelerator (AIA) Program. According to the company website, FieldLine HEDscan system is a non-invasive, wearable Magnetoencephalography (MEG) device with proprietary optically-pumped magnetometer (OPM) sensor technology.
MEG processes evaluate the magnetic fields produced by electric currents in the brain. The Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade called the sensors “quantum sensors” in the grant award announcement.
Unlike previous MEG equipment, which is typically housed inside a magnetically shielded room, the FieldLine HEDscan system can be used in any room of any medical facility, without the need for expensive building modifications.
This flexibility not only benefits patients in need of medical evaluation, it also gives Colorado manufacturer FieldLine Inc. a tremendous B2B marketing advantage. The device can be placed in nearly every hospital or clinic around the world.
