Introduction

ICM+ Tools is a Microsoft Excel AddIn that greatly simplifies the summary and analysis of large collections of files containing columnar data. ICM+ Tools was developed specifically to address the needs of neuromonitoring researchers using ICM+, particularly when conducting batch analyses on large repositories of high-resolution monitoring data.

The benefits of using ICM+ Tools

ICM+ provides functionality for storing and analysing complex neuromonitoring datasets. Over time, these datasets can become quite large, often containing many hundreds or even thousands of files. After reanalysing these files, the results can themselves consist of many files that need to be summarised prior to statistical analysis. Analysing or summarising each file individually is laborious and time-consuming, greatly limiting research output.

ICM+ Tools dramatically reduces user time spent summarising text-format data output by ICM+, thus improving productivity. With this software it is possible to analyse hundreds of files in minutes and seconds, instead of hours or days (file loading times may vary depending on file size).

System requirements and supported versions

ICM+ Tools has been developed as a Microsoft Excel AddIn, leveraging the inbuilt functionality of Excel to offer a wide range of data summary functions. ICM+ Tools has been tested successfully with Microsoft Excel 2003, 2007 and 2010. Compatibility with versions other than these is not guaranteed.

Licence and Registration

A limited-functionality, trial version of the software is available to download, which also allows compatibility checking with your installation of Excel.
