With NIRSport, you can measure fNIRS from anywhere on the head, in any environment, concurrently with (nearly) any other modality. 

Setup fNIRS Fast
NIRx uses the NIRScap system for an incredibly fast setup (see video of <60-second setup).


Move with NIRS
NIRx has minimized the presence of movement-related artifacts through innovative headgear, probes, and system design (see video of NIRSport in action during movement). 


Multi-Modal Integration

NIRSport integrates for concurrent measurements with EEG, fMRI, eye-tracking, cochlear implants, TMS, tDCS, EMG, pulse oximetry, and other modalities for concurrent measurements.  

Application-Specific Probes & Headgear
Specialized probes and headgear available for comfortable measurements on any subject.

The NIRSport is a freely configurable, battery operated, fNIRS system comprising of 8 illumination sources and 8 detection sensors.  This ultra-light (1kg) system combines LED illumination and innovative active detection sensor technology to provide a truly wearable neuroimaging solution. 

The NIRSport also offers the ability for tandem studies with two separate systems synchronized to operate simultaneously, thus doubling the source-detector density (up to 32 positions on the head)
