g.tec medical engineering has been founded by Dr. Christoph Guger and Dr. Günter Edlinger in 1999 in Austria. g.tec develops and produces high-performance brain-computer interfaces and neurotechnologies for invasive and non-invasive recordings for research or clinical purposes.
Christoph Guger and Günter Edlinger started developing brain-computer interfaces (BCI) about 20 years ago, after presenting the first portable BCI system in 1999 at the BCI Meeting in Rensselaerville, New York. g.tec’s products are internationally used in clinical environments or for research purposes such as the analysis of the brain, heart or muscle activity, brain assessments of severe brain injuries and disorders of consciousness, motor rehabilitation after stroke, neuromarketing, deep brain stimulation, brain mapping, neuro prosthesis control, communication, painting and closed-loop invasive and non-invasive BCI experiments.
In addition to biosignal amplifiers, invasive/non-invasive stimulators and wearable EEG headsets, g.tec offers CE-certified and FDA-cleared user-ready applications which are used in hospitals and rehabilitation centers for stroke rehabilitation, the brain assessment and communication of coma/locked-in patients or for brain mappings before and during neurosurgery. g.tec also organizes the yearly BCI Award for the world’s most innovative brain-computer interface project.
