Other Parts Discussed in Thread: ADS1298, ADS1198
William Croft, supporter in theOpenBCI forum says about the ADS1298ECGFE-PDK:
"TI explicitly states that the kit is not safe to connect to humans."
Is William Crofts statement correct? Scientsts from Indonesia tested the ADS1298ECGFE-PDK on humans and wrote two papers about it. The compared the board to a medical grade device as far as accuracy is concerned, and concluded, that the ADS1298ECGFE-PDK has the accuracy of a medical grade device.
For a 8 channels EEG Data Aquisition System:
For 32 channels EEG Data Aquisition System :
These papers contradict William Crofts statements from OpenBCI. What is correct? Is there a danger to use the ADS1298ECGFE-PDK with humans? Are the conclusions of the indonesian scientists wrong? Is it possible to start a study to validate the ADS1298ECGFE-PDK for medical and research applications, to make the ADS1298ECGFE-PDK a device which can be used for a broader range of applications?
