Stroke is a major health concern, with 1 in 4 people over 25 at risk, and a third of all global healthcare costs are spent on stroke. Fast treatment is essential to improve the outcome of patients with an acute ischemic stroke, because time is brain. Currently, over 50% of the large vessel occlusion (LVO) stroke patients are transported to a hospital without endovascular treatment, causing them to be transported again. This delays endovascular treatment of LVO stroke by 60 minutes.
Our solution for EMS: StrokePointer
StrokePointer is our solution with which stroke can be diagnosed in the ambulance by the acquisition of electrical brain activity of the patient and its automatic analysis. The goal of StrokePointer is to enable triage of stroke patients in the ambulance, providing emergency medical service (EMS) personnel with the opportunity to transport patients directly to the right hospital for the right treatment. This saves time, saves brain and dramatically improves patient outcome. Very similar to the electrocardiogram (ECG) for cardiac patients, our innovative technology measures electrical brain activity (EEG) to determine the right hospital and the right treatment.
