EvestG – the diagnostic machine for mental problems


The EvestG medical diagnostic system from Australia has just won a major inventors award and continues to move towards commercial reality. The system, which measures nerve activity via the ear/balance mechanism, is apparently able to map and identify the brain patterns relating to a range of mental illnesses, such as clinical depression, Parkinson’s and such.


Once the mapping for a particular condition has been done, it can be used to detect nascent conditions, or for monitoring the efficacy of treatment. It’s like having a stethoscope for the brain. The technology is still under trial and there are no conclusive results for its effectiveness, but it does look very promising.


 An EVestG system is already helping patients and researchers at the Monash Alfred Psychiatric Research Centre. It is being used to discover and validate biomarkers that accurately diagnosed patients with a broad range of conditions such as Parkinson’s, major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and Meniere’s.
