Periodic Reporting for period 1 - BTD (The EEG Dementia Index – Fast and Affordable Dementia Diagnosis)
Reporting period: 2019-12-01 to 2020-04-30
We propose a novel approach for early, fast, and affordable dementia screening based on electroencephalography (EEG). BrainTrip has developed, scientifically tested, and validated the BrainTrip Cognitive Index (BCI), an algorithm for the reliable detection of cognitive impairment, which can be the result of early-stage dementia.
Our method works best for people over 60, when the risk for early dementia starts to steeply rise. The test is completely non-invasive and simple: a minimally trained professional puts on an EEG cap, pushes the start button in an app, waits for 5 minutes, and receives the results.
We were accepted into the Dutch-based accelerator Rockstart Health, which introduced us to our first business partner, the senior care organisation Sensire.
BrainTrip was also accepted into the investor-focused accelerator Fast Track Malmö, which is introducing us to potential investors on a weekly basis.
We have received a grant from Expo 2020 Dubai for our societal impact.
With the help of the EU-provided coach, BrainTrip has been able to better understand and start the CE-certification process.
