EEG Technologists who have the opportunity to use NillyNoggin EEG Caps with their patients have shared their praise for the new product and the important ways it helps brighten the experience for the child.
“As an EEG technologist who has worked in the field for over 34 years, I know that the experience of having an EEG can be very traumatic for young children and older children with developmental delays.”
Reduces stress and anxiety
“NillyNoggin® EEG Caps relieve some of the anxiety and apprehension brought on by the application of the electrodes and the lengthy recording during the procedure.”
“The ability to choose a personal NillyNoggin EEG Cap during the duration of the recording allows the child to exercise independence and a measure of control of their situation and ease their transition into the recording process.”
Delight in patient’s eyes
“I have personally seen the delight in patient’s eyes as they try on their NillyNoggin EEG Cap and show it off to family and staff. I enthusiastically endorse this innovative and kid-friendly product as I appreciate just how important these little measures can be in a child’s medical experience.”
– Russ P, EEG Technologist for over 30 years, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC
Hospitals can be very frightening and stressful
“The hospital can be very frightening and stressful to children of all ages. The loss of control, new experiences, and a strange environment can interrupt the normal development of a child.”
Provides a sense of control
“NillyNoggin EEG Caps provide patients with a sense of control by allowing them to choose their own cap to wear during an EEG. The NillyNoggin EEG Cap covers the EEG electrodes, allowing a child to “forget” about the test they are undergoing and feel more like a normal child.”
A simple, yet profound way to brighten the experience
“NillyNoggin EEG Caps are a simple, yet profound, way to brighten what could be perceived as a negative experience and the patients and families that have received NillyNoggin EEG Caps so far have loved them. I believe that NillyNoggin EEG Caps could benefit every child that comes to a hospital for an EEG.”
– Hannah W, Child Life Specialist, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC
