The Neuro-CPD System
The system is built using multi-channel
physiological signal processing algorithm in
real-time to operate also under ambulatory
The major components and modules are:
Data Acquisition (DA) – collecting EEG,
ECG, EMG, BP, RESP and other physiological
signals in real time. Receiving verbal
information from the patient and generating a
specific adaptive patient pain profile (PPP,
see form). It also contains an Electro-Neural
Data Processing and Analysis (DP) - The
acquired data is processed and analyzed using
sophisticated Heuristic Artificial
Intelligence (AI) based algorithms. All data
is correlated and transferred to the
Diagnostic Reporting Module (DR) – The
Pain reporting module. The 3 modules may not
necessarily located at the same place.
Communication between them is by using the
latest 'Bluetooth' technology.
Among other parameters and diagnostic clinical
information, the report will classify the pain
into the following visual pain levels:
0 - No pain ; 1-3 – Mild ; 4-6 – Moderate ;
7-9 – High ; 10- Extra High.
Today patients after injury are referred for
orthopedic care where the appropriate
treatment may resolve the problem. However, in
certain cases patients will not get lasting
relief mainly because of inaccurate diagnosis.
Using Neuro-CPD those patients may receive the
appropriate neuro-medical treatment.
Neuro-CPD may localize and classify the source
and type of pain, psychological or biological,
which may avoid in certain cases unnecessary
surgery. This may save billions of dollars on
inappropriate procedures, assist patients and
may save insurance companies on unjustified
Neuro-CPD will increase the accuracy of the
Neuro-CPD system can monitor and document the
effects of physiotherapy, pharmacological
treatments and other interventions for
clinical as well as research purposes.
Neuro-CPD will provide objective physiological
Neuro-CPD is a complementary tool for the
physician to diagnose correctly and recommend
the appropriate treatment. It is NOT replacing
the physician nor is it performing any direct
clinical assessment. It is reporting
accurately certain vital signs so that in
conjunction with the physical, psychological
effect and other symptoms of pain the
physician may recommend the right treatment.
Neuro-CPD will revolutionize the treatment of
pain by physicians for the benefit of all
