About Firefly

Firefly is a medical technology and AI company developing and pioneering innovative neuroscientific solutions that improve outcomes for patients with mental illnesses and neurological disorders. The Company has developed its FDA-510(k) cleared Brain Network Analytics (“BNA”) software platform (the “Platform”) and is focused on advancing diagnostic and treatment approaches for people suffering from mental illnesses and cognitive disorders, including depression, dementia, anxiety disorders, concussions, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Over the last 15 years the Company has invested approximately $60 million to develop its BNA software, compile a database of brain wave tests, gain patent protection, and receive FDA approval to market and sell the Platform. As a result, Firefly is now pursuing commercial launch of the BNA Platform in multiple markets including, pharmaceutical companies with drug research and clinical trial activities and medical practitioners for use in their clinics.

The BNA Platform is a software as a medical solution (SAMS) that was developed using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) on Firefly’s extensive proprietary database of standardized, high-definition longitudinal electroencephalograms (EEGs) of over 17,000 patients representing twelve disorders, as well as clinically normal patients. The BNA Platform, in conjunction with an FDA-cleared EEG system, can provide clinicians with comprehensive insights into brain function (cognition). These insights can enhance a clinician’s ability to accurately diagnose mental illnesses and cognitive disorders and to evaluate what therapy and/or drug is best suited to optimize a patient’s outcome.
