A MINI-Q (patent pending) is a type of EEG switch device that allows a 2 or 4 channel EEG to take multiple channel recordings in sequence. When used with the accompanying assist software, it becomes possible to do fast whole-head assessments without the cost of a full head EEG.
A MINI-Q is intended to complement, not replace, a full QEEG. It is much like a chest x-ray, when compared to a CAT scan. A chest x-ray is much faster and cheaper than a CAT scan, and serves its particular purposes. Just as everyone does not need a CAT scan, everyone does not need a full QEEG, and can benefit from a MINI-Q as an alternative.
