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

Condition or disease

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.

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 31 participants
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: ClearView Predicate Comparison Testing
Study Start Date : September 2011
Actual Primary Completion Date : September 2011
Actual Study Completion Date : September 2011


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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.
