High R&D Potential
All Neurosoft systems are developed and manufactured at the company’s own base. Since 1992 designers and electronic engineers have created 52 models of different medical systems. All the software for the produced equipment is the creative effort of the company’s high-skilled programmers. Every second sold product has been developed in the last two years, every third one – in the last four years. The company can develop new equipment according to the customer’s technical specification. For example: in 2000-2002 the company created and introduced into cosmonauts training a new system for transmitting of physiological information by the radio channel on demand of Yuri Gagarin Cosmonauts Training Center. Neurosoft Сompany was awarded a diploma of Yuri Gagarin Cosmonauts Training Center for effective cooperation on behalf of Russian and International cosmonautics.
Annually the special parachute training of cosmonaut candidates and specific training for surviving in different natural regions in case of the emergency landing is performed with the use of the physiological data transmission system by the radio channel developed by Neurosoft Сompany. Nowadays Yuri Gagarin Cosmonauts Training Center uses digital systems for HRV analysis VNS-Micro, digital ECG systems Poly-Spectrum-12, digital RhEO system Rheo-Spectrum-3, digital psycho-physiological assessment system NS-PsychoTest, and digital EEG system Neuron-Spectrum-4/EP with the video EEG monitoring system. This equipment was used in cosmonauts training of ISS-3, ISS-5, ISS-7, ISS-8, ISS-9, ISS-11 (International Space Station).
Achievements in Telemedicine
Each digital system produced by the company can be used in telemedicine. It does not require any additional software (all the options are included into the basic software versions). Digital ECG systems of Poly-Spectrum series are embedded into telemedicine network “AMBULANCE” that covers most of Russian stations operating in Antarctica. A very big telemedicine project with the use of Neurosoft systems was put into health service of Tumentransgaz CLL of Gazprom JSC. This telemedicine network embraces more than 50 stations locating on more than 2000 km territory.
Planar Technology Application
In systems manufacturing Neurosoft applies the so-called planar technology, accepted worldwide for electronic components production. It allows achieving high reliability with extremely small overall dimensions of apparatus.
USB and Bluetooth Technologies Application
All the systems, produced by Neurosoft Сompany, use the USB interface for data exchange with the computer. Since 2005 year, the wireless Bluetooth technology appeared in the company arsenal. These modern technologies provide high speed of data transmission, convenience in connection and operation of devices.
Almost all Neurosoft equipment is manufactured at the company’s production plant. This allows operative updating of the products. Delays in delivery are rare and caused by the lack of components at the warehouses of outside manufacturers. The production of high-tech electrodes for electroencephalography, electroretinography, rheoprostatography, rheoophthalmography, and others is well-organized.
