EEG was invented by Hans Berger, a German psychiatrist who made the first electrical recording of human brain activity and called it Elektroenzephalogramm. The new neurologic diagnostic tool would lead to major advancements in treating brain disorders.
Measuring the head, marking electrode locations, abrading the skin, applying conductive paste, gluing the electrodes and eventually, tethering the patient to a box with wires. One thing is undeniable: the EEG procedure makes the patient feel sick.
Zeto has made a better world of EEG possible - for patient, physician and technologist. Our zero-prep, easy to wear headset with no-residue electrodes is backed by a cloud platform that offers live viewing, video, auxiliary inputs and tools for analysis.
For hospitals and clinics dissatisfied with traditional EEG, Zeto offers a turnkey solution for routine EEG tests. Unlike competitors, Zeto provides lower cost and faster turnaround time to clinics, extraordinary convenience to operators and a better experience to patients. Zeto makes EEG available to facilities that do not have access to trained EEG operators or neurologists.
I am in private practice since July 2006 in partnership with Dr. Akshay Shah, neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist at San Jose Pacific Neurology Center. We got the Zeto system in September 2019 and since then we have become part of a successful journey to the present Zeto system. The setup for routine EEG has decreased to 5-10 minutes from previous durations of 30 minutes to 1 hour. Removal of electrodes is very easy. Quality of both EEG and video is very impressive now with all the upgrades and enhancements. There is an artifact reduction tool also which helps interpret EEGs with movement and muscle artifacts. Routine EEG is integrated with photic stimulator as well. All the EEGs are stored in the cloud and can be reviewed in live or recorded mode.
The Zeto EEG system has been extremely useful during the covid pandemic where close exposure of EEG technologist to the patient was reduced substantially. This was true for set up, recording, and cleaning of the unit. Over the years, the video quality has improved, and it is easy to differentiate epileptic versus nonepileptic events. Patient is also happy as amount of time spent in the office during the procedure has decreased at least by 50-60%. We were able to perform EEGs during the peaks of the pandemic, thanks to Zeto.
Another thing I observed working with Zeto was exceptional customer service. From the day we placed the order, we received personal attention from Aswin Gunasekar, CEO. Whether it was supplies, video quality, artifact reduction, training of EEG technologist, or network issues, the help was just a phone or email away. I am also very impressed by John Crawford, R.EEG.T/EPT, Associate Director of Customer Success. He has such a deep knowledge of EEG acquisition and interpretation with lots of practical tips to acquire EEG data without artifacts. In summary, getting the Zeto EEG system for our practice was one of the best decisions made during my professional life and I am very happy with the product as well as the customer service.

The first time I heard about the novel concept of dry electrodes, I was immediately intrigued. I am so excited to incorporate the highly innovative Zeto dry electrode technology into my new solo practice. The incorporation of this technology is seamless and excellent, the waveforms are high quality. It is perfect for a private practice owner such as myself as I can easily throw it on in minutes which is far less time compared to the conventional electrodes using gel. Taking it off is an easy 1 minute. I quickly change settings with the touch of a button. It is not just an electroencephalogram machine, it is the newest in technology. I look forward to the advances of technology of this forward-thinking immensely inventive company. I strongly recommend this to my neurological colleagues looking for excellent EEG equipment that is not only easy to use but easy to incorporate in a busy practice.

We started using Zeto this year at our large university hospital in order to get our EEGs done faster. A Zeto EEG contains a full set of EEG electrodes and it only takes 5-15 minutes to set up (compared to 1-2 hours for a conventional EEG), and can be applied by anyone after a very short instructional session. The system includes an artifact reduction tool which significantly increases the quality of the recording. In terms of application time, the Zeto system is over 400% more efficient than a conventional EEG machine. The fact that the person applying the Zeto doesn't have to be an EEG technologist is very useful as well. Overall the system works very well for my needs as an Epilepsy Director.
An EEG technician at Methodist University can now be more productive and perform more EEGs in a day. The EEG and video recording are uploaded to the cloud where a specialist can read them at their own convenience. The ZETO Instant EEG has been beneficial in the midst of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the convenience of this EEG technology, PPE and exposure time for healthcare workers is reduced significantly. Fast setup and cleanup decrease the exposure times for nurses and other care providers. The ZETO Instant EEG uses single-use electrodes which also reduces the risk of contamination.
Accessing an FDA compliant EEG device that performs at an uncompromising standard, allows for increased throughput and provides a user experience that rivals the latest technology assets, was very attractive to us. Zeto transformed the way we think about EEG capture by advancing technology further in the past two years than the industry had in the prior three or four decades.
The most rewarding part of my experience with this device is that there was no glue! Having had several EEGs, both inpatient and outpatient, the most burdensome part is always dealing with the glue, the residue it leaves behind and the long process of getting it all out of my hair once the EEG is done. With Zeto, none of that was a concern which made it awesome.
The Zeto WR19 system is the ideal solution for modern EEG collection. The quality of the data, the headset’s ease of use, and the support provided by the Zeto Team have all been outstanding. Utilizing multiple headsets at multiple sites with a single cloud-based interface has allowed us to ramp up data collection in a very short time. Zeto is setting the highest of standards for quality medical grade EEG.
