New Features

The DSI-7 * is a research grade wireless EEG headset designed for ultra-rapid application of 7 sensors at locations corresponding to the 10-20 International System. Its main features include:

  • Self-donned and ready to record EEG in under 1 minutes
  • Comfortable for wearing continuously over 8 hours
  • Portable design suitable for light ambulation in office or lab environment
  • 7 sensors positioned at choice of F3, F4, C3, C4, Pz, P3, P4 locations of the 10-20 International System
  • Linked-Ears earclip mounted active sensors
  • Continuous impedance monitoring
  • BlueTooth wireless transmission with sampling at 300Hz
  • Rechargeable Li-ion batteries allow continuous operation
  • 4-bit digital trigger input
  • Adjustable to fit a wide range of headsizes
  • CUSTOMIZABLE SENSOR LOCATIONS (contact us for custom requests)

* The DSI-7 replaces the DSI-6 prototype system (most information about DSI-6 and tutorial videos are applicable to DSI-7)


The DSI-7's practicality, portability, and high signal quality opens the door to taking numerous applications that require rapid and non-intrusive EEG recording. Such applications include:

  • Neurofeedback
  • NeuroErgonomics
  • NeuroEconomomics / NeuroMarketing
  • NeuroEducation
  • Augmented Cognition
  • Brain Computer Interfaces
  • Biometrics
  • Cognitive Stress or Workload Monitoring
  • Psychological Research
  • Sports Peak Performance Training

DSI-7 Software


DSI-Streamer is Wearable Sensing's easy-to-use data acquisition software. The software features include:

  • Control of DSI headset functions
  • Real-time diplay and replay of data
  • Tabbed navigation of controls
  • Integrated diagnostic tab with graphical color representation of electrode impedance
  • User selectable filters
  • Record raw and/or filtered data
  • Exporting to standard EDF and comma-separated value (.csv) formats that can be readily imported to 3rd party applications
  • Editable montages, color scheme and display parameters (window size, scaling, etc.)
  • Event Related Potentials (ERP) view (in beta)
  • TCP/IP socket for real-time streaming to external applications (in beta)

* included at no additional charge with DSI systems



QStates is a quantitative EEG (qEEG) based cognitive state classificatin software that uses spectral features

  • Rapid and efficient Partial-Least-Squares (PLS) based learning algorithm
  • Train to classify cognitive states based on as little as two one-minute recordings (high and low states)
  • Produces linear interpolation or probability density function output of state (0-100 value) every 2 seconds
  • Models can be trained to classify any cognitive state for which there is a qEEG signature (eg. workload, emotions, ...)
  • Validated perfomance of >90% accuracy for mental workload, engagement and fatigue
  • Classifies up to 3 models simultaneously
  • Real-time processing of data streamed via TCP/IP socket
  • Off-line data analysis with graphical display of results
  • Automated summary tables generation
  • Monitor data quality and rejects bad epochs
  • Data saved in comma-separated value (.csv) format

*Sold separately

Application Programming Interface (API)

Wearable Sensing is currently developing an Application Programming Interface to allow developers to directly communicate with DSI systems via a Component Object Model (COM) interface that is implemented as a .dll library for Windows OS.
