There have been several proposals for a dataformat for EEG, see G. Hellman,
M. Kuhn, M. Prosch, M.Spreng: Extensible biosignal (EBS) file format: simple
method for EEG data exchange. Electroencephalogr clin Neurophysiol 1996;
Besides EDF (European Data Format), there is an USA standard: ASTM E1467-94
(American Society for Testing and Materials: Standard Specification for
Transferring Digital Neurophysiological Data between Independent Computer
Systems). Several manufacturers will provide the transfer of data to this
format if consumers want this (see discussion in J Clin Neurophysiology
1993; 10:397, 534-39).
Software and Documentation for Conversion Software to/from ASTM 1467 can be
obtained from Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research, Rochester,
Minnesota 55905. Neil E. Brusacker can be reached at +1 (507)284 8679.
The ASTM E1467-94 documents (and also ASTM E1238-94, Specification for
Transferring Clinical Observations between Independent Computer Systems, and
ASTM E1713-95, Standard for Transferring Digital Waveform Data between
Independent Computer Systems) can be purchased from ASTM, 100 Barr Harbor
Drive, West Conshohocen, PA 19428-2959. e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
