Striking Stroke- enhancing and expanding StrokeAlert’s business skills

Project description

Detecting silent stroke at home

Strokes happen when the blood supply in a small area in the brain gets cut off – often due to a clot. Silent stroke doesn’t cause any noticeable symptoms and patients may go on living their life without ever receiving treatment. The EU-funded StrokeAlert- WomenEU project wishes to address the inability to detect silent stroke with existing technology. Researchers have developed a novel device that monitors haemodynamic parameters and can alert individuals at risk for stroke. The device can be implanted for telemonitoring at home, reducing the stress of a next episode and improving the quality of life of individuals at risk.


Our vision is to preserve Improve the quality of life by reducing silent stroke impact. We will develop, manufacture, and introduce the first easy-to-use device for alerting stroke for high-risk populations. The first market is hospital use during sedation, with the end-stage market being home telemonitoring. The company has a clear patentable product, a large growing market, and an expert and experienced team. StrokeAlert's intellectual property is an alerting system via continuous monitoring of hemodynamic parameters (patent submitted). StrokeAlert's impact will be reducing morbidity and mortality from stroke. We shall compare patients' neurological outcomes with and without StrokeAlert.
