Presto and T&W Engineering form long-term partnership

News

The companies are collaborating on the development of a patient-centric in-ear device that measures EEG to enable digital biomarkers for neurological disorders and brain health.

Presto Engineering, a European leading expert in application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design and semiconductor engineering and production services, and T&W Engineering, aleading in-ear electroencephalogram (EEG) wearable device developer and provider of artificial intelligence (AI)-driven EEG reading services, have announced their collaboration to develop an ASIC for measuring high quality, multi-channel dry-electrode EEG for next-generation wearable brain sensing.

T&W Engineering has researched and developed in-ear EEG technology for more than 10 years and has published a significant amount of peer-reviewed scientific articles and patents in collaboration with academic and scientific partners. By leveraging the competencies as a spin-out from one of the world's largest hearing aid manufacturers, T&W Engineering is advancing patient-centric brain sensing by integrating dry-electrodes and advanced miniaturized electronics into a pair of in-ear headphones. The potential applications are vast, with an immediate focus on digital biomarkers for assessment of sleep, epilepsy and neurogenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. The development and partnership with Presto, a company recognized for its track-record in the manufacture and supply of ASICs for hearing aids and wearable devices, will enable T&W Engineering to release its new, innovative product with the highest quality and ensure superior patient care.


T&W Engineering’s in-ear EEG technology provides a user-friendly, scalable and long-term sensing solution in the patient’s natural environment. For healthcare providers, the technology enables improved insight in the assessment of brain health.

According to Cedric Mayor, CEO, Presto Engineering, “Our collaboration with T&W Engineering is the perfect synergy of our respective strengths. Without leveraging T&W Engineering’s expertise in wall-to-wall design of medical products, combined with Presto’s capabilities in semiconductor design, industrialization, production test and supply chain management, such breakthrough innovation will be difficult to hit the market first-time right. Releasing exceptional and innovative ASICs is what we strive for. We are grateful to T&W Engineering for such a rewarding opportunity to contribute to improving patients’ lives.”

Richard Topholm, CEO, T&W Engineering, also shared his thoughts on the partnership, saying, “We are thrilled to collaborate with Presto once again, a trusted partner who shares our commitment to advancing medical solutions. Our combined capabilities enable us to tackle complex challenges and drive innovation in the healthcare industry. Together, we aim to make a significant impact in the field of EEG technology and improve the lives of individuals affected by neurological disorders.”
