Description: PRANA Software Suite features quantitative electroencephalogram (EEG) analysis with automatic artifact correction/rejection, heart-rate variability, pulse, arterial pressure, and respiration analysis. Various data types with different time scales (traces, markers, events, and trends) can be displayed simultaneously and in total synchronicity with one-millisecond accuracy. Based on a library of digital recording file formats, this technology can be used independently of the hardware collection systems ensuring data exchange and comparability.

This technology is a collection of modules rather than a traditional suite of standalone products and is available in two editions: the Production Suite and Developer Suite. This entry covers both editions.

This technology stores data on the user`s local drive.
