Probes and caps are some of the most important pieces of any NIRS system setup. Both you and your subject will be in intimate contact with these critical components every time the system is used.
NIRx offers complete flexibility for montage definition. The possibilities are nearly limitless. One may place probes on the 'standard' (e.g, 10-20, 10-10, 10-5) layout or in arbitrary positions; one may use short-distance measurements (tomography) or fixed-distance measurements (topography); one may have integrated EEG or other modalities (tDCS, accelerometer, etc.) in addition to NIRS, or simply use NIRS alone on a dedicated NIRScap; and one may use fNIRS concurrently with fMRI, TMS, MEG, EKG, pulse oximetry, EMG, EOG, eye-tracking, motion-tracking, etc.
