Detection & monitoring
for delirium

Prolira-DeltaScan can be used to objectively detect & monitor for delirium which is beneficial to patient care in hospitals

“Our innovation is a breakthrough in delirium care”

DeltaScan revolutionizes delirium care

To help healthcare professionals detect and monitor for delirium, DeltaScan is created. The development is initiated by clinicians, who feel the need to get a grip on delirium, to improve patient recovery.

Medical device based on EEG

Delirium is a manifestation of acute brain dysfunction. 
EEG (electroencephalography) is the depiction of the electrical activity in the brain. The brain activity of patients with delirium is different from those without delirium, specifically in the delta frequency. As DeltaScan measures and analyses patient’s EEGs quickly, it is a practical device to help detect and monitor for delirium.

Why would you choose DeltaScan?

Delirium detection is complicated and confusing. International guidelines say and research shows that in current practice only
30 to 50% of the delirium cases are detected. Patients, caregivers, and hospitals are suffering the consequences, while healthcare cost keep rising.

To help healthcare professionals detect delirium, better and in time, DeltaScan is created.

DeltaScan improves patient safety and the quality of care. Improved delirium detection and recognition, improves patient outcome and reduces hospital length of stay, while reducing healthcare costs. Using DeltaScan is beneficial for patients, their families, healthcare professionals and budget holders.

DeltaScan benefits


DeltaScan is the world’s first objective medical device to detect and monitor for delirium, acute brain failure. Our proprietary technology measures brain activity, via electroencephalography (EEG). With DeltaScan, delirium can be monitored like all other vital signs, effectively and easily.


Delirium is a medical emergency. With DeltaScan, healthcare professionals can measure their patient’s brain activity and detect for delirium as soon as it develops. It is our ambition to equip healthcare professionals with the right tool to detect delirium in every patient. And as early as possible, as it is a medical emergency.


DeltaScan improves the quality of care and patient safety. Healthcare professionals can objectively monitor every patient every shift. It improves compliance with medical guidelines and makes documentation and communication about patient results practical and precise.
