The NIRSIT system is the first fNIRS system that provides millimeter-level spatial resolution while also providing high temporal resolution (125 ms / 8 Hz). The system defied conventional thinking that fNIRS imaging cannot provide comparable spatial resolution to the more expensive and stationary - fMRI and PET systems. NIRSIT is the culmination of three core/ pioneering technologies: 1) dense packing of laser and photo diodes, 2) code-division multiple access (CDMA) and time division multiple access (TDMA) modulation for high temporal resolution, and 3) monolithic IC implementation for high SNR.
The NIRSIT and NIRSIT LITE systems have been used in multiple research publications including:
NIRSIT by OBELAB is exclusively distributed in the US and Canada by Soterix Medical.
