What is mindBEAGLE?

mindBEAGLE uses Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology for quick and easy assessment of DOC patients and even provides basic communication with some of them. It is used to determine whether patients can understand and follow basic task instructions, even though they are diagnosed as people in a vegetative state (VS, also called UWS or Unresponsive Wakefulness Syndrome), minimally conscious state (MCS) or (completely) locked-in state (LIS/CLIS).

The lack of feedback is a huge barrier to medical diagnosis or clarifying the patient’s condition. mindBEAGLE gives physicians, family members or caregivers a broader knowledge of the patient’s perception and consciousness. In the assessment phase, mindBEAGLE will provide reliable information about the level of awareness and consciousness of the patient. The system also supports a longitudinal screening to investigate stability and improvement of responses or daily changes in awareness.


Imagine being able to think, hear, and feel–but not to move or communicate

Dr. Melanie Fried Oken

Oregon Health & Science

“mindBEAGLE helps us to work with individuals in their home environments to determine if they have measurable evoked potentials.”

Dr. Steven Laureys

FNRS Research Director,
Coma Science Group, GIGA-Ulg and CHU Liège, BE

“mindBEAGLE combines important electro-physiological tests that allow us to search for signs of consciousness after coma. The big advantage of mB is that it is integrated. You can take it to any patients and plug them in and get the results directly. It is still a challenge and it doesn’t work with all the patients. mindBEAGLE is a big help for us to use the paradigms as they are implemented in mB for very challenging patients.”
