NIRx Spring Loaded Grommets

For high quality, low-noise fNIRS recordings, optodes needs to make firm and constant contact with the subject’s scalp in an easy-to-setup and comfortable way. NIRx developed spring loaded grommets to address this need with four (4) levels of spring strength:

  • Apply zero tension tops to probes on the forehead or on sensitive child populations.
  • Apply low and medium tension tops to probes covered by some hair or where a subject may be ambulating.
  • Apply high tension tops to probes that have thick layers of hair to fight through.

Mix and match tension levels to achieve the right balance of data quality and subject comfort. Each subject is unique! Retrofit your existing NIRScaps to take advantage of this improvement today.
