About The Company

Cortical Dynamics Ltd is an Australian Medical Device unlisted public company headquartered in Perth, Western Australia with operations in Scoresby, Victoria.

Focused on commercialising the intellectual property originally developed at Swinburne University in Melbourne. The core-product the Brain Anaesthesia Response (BARM™) System has been developed with the objective of better detecting the effect of anaesthetic agents on brain activity, aiding anaesthetists in keeping patients optimally anaesthetized.

The BAR monitoring system is based on recent innovative developments in our understanding of how the brain’s rhythmic electrical activity, EEG, is produced. This approach produces indices directly related to the physiological state of the brain, which is fundamentally different to all other currently available devices.
