This study serves as a comparison study between the EPIC ClearView and a predicate device.


Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: ClearView Predicate Comparison Testing

Further study details as provided by Epic Research & Diagnostics, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation Between ClearView and Predicate [ Time Frame: At time of study scan (Single study visit only, with no follow-up. The study endpoint will be reported for day 0, the day of the study visit.) ]
    The primary objective of this study is to perform a point-to-point comparison of the EPIC ClearView™ galvanic skin response hand measurements (on a 0-25 scale) to those of a predicate device (on a 0-100 scale). We hypothesize that there will be a statistically significant correlation between the galvanic skin response measurements made by the two devices.

Detailed Description:
The EPIC ClearView is a galvanic skin response (GSR) measurement system that is intended to be used to determine autonomic response as psychological indicators by measuring the electrical resistance of the skin. The EPIC ClearView is a non-invasive digital bioelectrography instrument that is used to assess the electrophysiology of humans. The measurements are digital photographs taken in a brief exposure to an electric field. These measurements are quantified to produce a standardized Response Scale.
