My Modular Optical Brain Imager (MOBI) is an optics based portable brain imager used to assist in drastically shortening recovery time post-stroke. It funded by the National Institutes of Health and is in the provisional patent stage (U.S. Patent Application Publication No. US2020/0022581). The motivation came from when I was developing a Space Suit for SpaceX. I was looking for a non-invasive device to integrate into an astronauts helmet to both assist in determining a "fit for flight" metric, and to assist in quantifying recovery post traumatic brain injuries that may occur in low-resource environments.

Demo of Modular Optical Brain Imager (MOBI), our fNIRS module

This video was prepared for the 7th annual NIH BRAIN Initiative Investigator's Conference in June 2021. This video highlights features of the fNIRS module we developed under NIH NINDS R01-EB026998.

MOCA Presentation for OSA 2020

This is the talk I gave on a software we've created for designing new and analyzing existing fNIRS modules. MOCA stands for Modular Optode Configuration Analyzer. The manuscript is in review, but the preprint can be found here @ doi: https://doi.org/10.1101/2021.04.06.438705
