An EEG test may cause a great deal of anxiety for the person having the test, as well as their parents or caretakers. The gauze and tape that is wrapped around the head to protect the EEG hardware can be visually terrifying.
A NillyNoggin can help! It serves several purposes. It can minimize stress when a child realizes they get to select their very own fun colorful cap to cover up the ‘scary’ look of the leads. The cap can lessen the anxiety that parents have because the child is less stressed. The NillyNoggin EEG Cap also provides the EEG technician with ease of functionality – it helps them have quicker access to fix any malfunctioning leads.
