Lifelines Neuro has design and manufacturing facilities in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and distributes products and services across the globe. The Lifelines Neuro headquarters is in Troy, IL, which also serves as the US distributor site.
The company provides electroencephalography (EEG) solutions for a number of market niches, specializing in underserved segments where EEG is traditionally difficult to record. Our exceptional hardware and software breaks down barriers to performing EEG in the NICU, ED, ICU, veterinary practices and in patients’ homes.
Lifelines’ solutions empower physicians, EEG service providers, research leaders, EEG technologists, and veterinarians. Deep experience in the EEG community means unmatched customer service that helps clients improve patient care and safety, processes, research, operational efficiency, and financial performance.
Our History: Ambulatory EEG – The Trackit Recorder
In 2000, Stephen Walters and Dave Hulin founded Lifelines Ltd in the UK. They developed a robust, ambulatory EEG product, the Trackit™ Recorder. This small, portable device allowed patients to have their brainwaves recorded in the comfort of their own home. Lifelines began selling this device globally in 2001 and the Sleepwalker product in 2003. To secure global success, the company needed a US presence to tap into the world’s largest market.
Expansion to the United States
In 2001, Simon Griffin, a biomedical engineer with years of expertise in the neurodiagnostic industry, started Lifelines Neurodiagnostic Systems, Inc. in Troy, IL to distribute this technology in North America. Adding video to the Trackit EEG recorder allowed physicians to observe a patient’s clinical status while simultaneously looking at the electrographic activity of the brain. Patients who were having seizures were no longer required to be admitted to a hospital epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) to obtain a clinical diagnosis. The Trackit recorder has become one of the most successful ambulatory EEG systems ever released.
Lifelines founders Dave Hulin, Simon Griffin and Stephen Walters
Simon’s wife, Mary Anne Griffin, R. EEG/EP T., joined Lifelines in 2013. Her previous experience as a clinical EEG technologist and director of the neurophysiology lab at St. Louis University Hospital served as the foundation of her career as COO for Lifelines.
Together, Simon and Mary Anne have continued to grow the US market of home-based epilepsy monitoring, and in 2017, they acquired Lifelines Ltd, strengthening the ties between the two Lifelines companies on both sides of the Atlantic.
Lifelines’ innovative technology and cloud-based solutions, deep experience in the EEG space, and unmatched customer support help our clients improve patient care and safety, processes, research, operational efficiency, and financial performance.
