mBrainTrain's Smarting device offers high-quality wireless EEG recordings and real-time brain activity monitoring, both in and out of the lab. When paired with a PC, it delivers superior data quality and excellent time precision, making it a reliable tool for researchers. Motion tracking, facilitated by a 3D built-in gyroscope, contributes supplementary data, enriching EEG research capabilities. The battery of the Smarting device lasts up to 5 hours for wireless EEG data stream, up to 500Hz sampling rate.


Smarting is compatible with mBrainTrain’s innovative EEG headgear, Smartfones, perfectly suitable for auditory and music studies.



Acquisition Software  

Smarting seamlessly integrates with user-friendly streamer software for PC, facilitating wireless communication within a range of 10 meters. Configured pre-sets allow for possible configuration mistakes and enhance the ease of use. Recordings maintain precision and synchronicity in supported BDF or XDF formats. Smarting is equipped to handle Lab Streaming Layer (LSL) and TTL inputs with millisecond precision, while offering customisable keyboard markers. The software enables impedance measurement for each electrode and provides real-time visualisation of data acquisition.

Channels and Caps

Smarting features 24 channels, 1 ground (DRL) and 1 reference (CMS), with a customisable layout to accommodate additional EOG and ECG electrodes as needed. Smarting is compatible with both gel-based and semi-dry/saline-based EEG caps.
