Open Source – FlexNIRS

We made the best NIRS cerebral oximeter and we are working on sharing  it with you for your research applications!!!

You can watch a short video about the FlexNIRS here

We are actively working on getting funds to support the open source operation.

Our plan is toshare the basic circuit drawings, and 3D printing files with researchers. These details will be available under formal request from non-profit institutions.

We are also finalizing a negotiation with a non-profit company, Neuluce, to share fully assembled and programmed FlexNIRS devices.

For large orders we can share them already under a service contract with MGH.

We expect the cost of each FlexNIRS to be ~ $500-$800, based on quantity

If interested please contact Dr. Franceschini for more information.
