This report explores the patent landscape of innovation relating to electrode positioning for detecting or recording brainwaves. This analysis demonstrates ongoing commercial interest in this area, with strong growth and potential. Recording and analysis of brainwaves is used for medical diagnosis and for therapy of neurodegenerative disease. Technological advancements in brainwave recording and analysis continue in emerging areas such as machine-brain interfaces to restore mobility and independence to people with paralysis by enabling direct brain control of these devices.

We have also provided the content of this report as an interactive visualisation which allows the field of research to be more deeply understood.
