Bringing to market the world’s first integrated medical cooling system for minimizing brain damage in stroke patients.

Project description

Innovative cooling device to reduce stroke-related disabilities

In Europe, over 1.1 million people will have a stroke each year, and a third of them will suffer from permanent disabilities. Targeted temperature management (TTM) is an effective method for reducing brain injury in sudden cardiac arrest patients. Extrapolation of TTM to stroke will have an enormous impact on patients. However, currently available cooling technologies have limited functionalities. The EU-funded CUCUMBER project will bring to market the world’s first cooling device, CoolConnect, that will assist the needs of stroke treatment to improve patients’ neurological outcomes and survival. CoolConnect is an integrated device addressing the three critical phases of brain cooling: early cooling, cooling during reperfusion and maintenance cooling.
