LiveAmp 8 / 16 / 32

Compact wireless EEG amplifier especially designed for mobile EEG applications

The LiveAmp is a wearable, 24-bit amplifier – available with 8, 16, 32 and also with 64 channels. As it is wireless and allows you to store your recorded data internally (i.e. on an exchangeable memory card), there are no mobility limitations. The LiveAmp is easy and intuitive to use and its technical specifications leave nothing to be desired.
