Mobile Neurotechnologies

The interpretation of signals from the human brain is a challenge. The  group »Mobile Neurotechnologies« of the Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg is taking on this challenge in order to make systems for electroencephalography (EEG) available in concrete application scenarios - for example in health applications or at safety-critical workplaces. Insa Wolf's group is particularly working on mobile EEG systems that make the analysis of brain activity suitable for everyday use.

Insights into research and practice


SleepWell – Development of a mobile multisensor system for sleep monitoring at home

Did you sleep well last night? This question concerns everyone, because sleep disorders affect health in the long term. That's why we are working on a multi-sensor system close to the ear that records sleep behavior comfortably at home.


Mobile EEG-Systems for better epilepsy treatment

Exactly recorded biosignals at the time of the seizure in everyday processes help in the classification of epilepsy disorders, in the optimal dosage of drugs - and perhaps in future even in the development of early warning systems. The project »MOND« contributes to research into these approaches.


Better listening at the cocktail party

At a busy party, a healthy hearing can concentrate on a single voice. This ability is also known as the cocktail party effect. Many hearing impaired people have a problem with this because their hearing aids lack information about which speaker to follow.


A mobile system for ADHD therapy - Attention

An attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) also frequently occurs in adulthood. The consortium of the BMBF project »ATTENTION« is dedicated to the development of an alternative or complementary ADHD treatment approach that is effective and has few side effects in adult patients.



Digital therapy system for hearing and pronunciation training

The goal of the THERESIAH project is the development of a new digital therapy system for hearing and pronunciation training for severely hearing impaired people. THERESIAH will complement existing therapies, especially for patients with cochlear implants. Various project partners have come together around the Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg for this purpose. Therapy with THERESIAH is software-based and focuses on gamification. Users can upgrade to performance levels through high exercise frequency, motivation and feedback systems.


Connected Health

The work area Connected Health dedicates its research and development activities to sensor-based health systems that can be deployed flexibly and without clinical infrastructure.
