NIRx Medical Technologies
NIRx Medical Technologies, LLC is a globally recognized leader in providing comprehensive solutions for functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) research. The versatility of fNIRS has seen a significant increase in its application in vision science. The technique allows for the measurement of neural activity in the visual cortex and large-scale cortical networks and is useful in investigating the neural mechanisms underlying visual attention and perception. Additionally, fNIRS is employed in studying the effects of visual deprivation or visual training. Its non-invasive and user- and subject-friendly nature makes it an ideal tool for monitoring changes in neural activity during the development of the visual system in infants and children. Furthermore, it is increasingly used in researching changes in neural activity related to visual disorders and the changes resulting from treatment.
NIRx offers a complete range of research solutions, including a versatile multimodal hardware platform, advanced online and offline analysis software, expert technical and scientific support, and comprehensive training programs.
We are committed to supporting fNIRS researchers through our offices in Orlando, New York and Berlin, Germany. For further details on our solutions, please do not hesitate to contact us at +49 308 1453 5990 (EU), (+1) 321-352-7570 (US/Canada), or come and visit our booth at the VSS meeting.
