Description of the ICS Dr. G. Roscher GmbH
The ICS Dr. G. Roscher GmbH (ICS - Intelligent Computer Systems) is a SME in Klein Ammensleben near Magdeburg. Magdeburg is the capital of Sachsen-Anhalt, one of the new German countries. ICS was founded in 1991, to develop, manufacture and trade Intelligent Computer Systems for medical and industrial applications.

The topic is the patented method for real time recognition of noisy biological signals.
The EEG system BrainScope consists of efficient algorithms implemented for a powerful multi-processor system that recognizes EEG activity as Event Related Potential (ERP) in real-time. These methods are integrated into a powerful graphic user interface and use a database and knowledge management system. Incorporated into this user interface are state of the art EEGSYS algorithms from the NIMH (Washington / USA) for mappings, FFT, etc. A video-system is integrated in the system for watching a patient.
The ECG system HeartScope is based on the technology of the BrainScope. With the HeartScope a physician can recognize the electrical activity of the heart in the dynamic in time and space in real-time.
Portable devices - PhysioCord - using low power technology can store, recognize and transmit biological signals as the ECG wireless and in open field.
The real-time recognition is realized by using the following methods:
- Patented method for real-time recognition of EEG (and other noisy signals),
- Neural Networks for feature extraction,
- Fuzzy-logic for pattern recognition,
- Evolutionary algorithms for classification,
- Dynamic lists for internal management of signal description in real-time,
- Database systems for external management of signal description and clinical data,
- Knowledge Management Systems for the acquisition of the knowledge of the experts.
The strategy of our R & D activities is oriented on the application of IST and is developed from signals, signal acquisition, classification and recognition in to knowledge, administered by the Knowledge Management System (KMS), designed as communicative system, acquiring the knowledge from the leading experts. Users of the high performance systems for real-time signal recognition are Universities, research institutes and private clinics in Germany. In the last years we are going in the European market, especially in Switzerland.
The ECG-devices are used by international well known pharmacological enterprises.
From 1991 to 1997 ICS worked in the Innovation Founding Center Magdeburg. The success of the enterprise gives the chance to build the own building in Klein Ammensleben near Magdeburg in 1997.
