New 3G Device Coming To Market Which Can Detect Strokesby Richard Kuehn on 12/28/22
I read a story saying that every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a stroke, a shocking statistic. Some are massive and easy to recognize. Others are small and can be undetectable. A recent study of in-hospital strokes found that most go undetected for more than four hours, which can be very dangerous. Thankfully, there is a new product coming to market in 2023 called Neuralert, which the FDA designated a breakthrough device last year. The pair of smart wristbands use a proprietary algorithm to track arm asymmetry or weakness, common symptoms of a stroke. Neuralert can detect symptoms in as little as 15 minutes, and automatically alert medical staff.
