Penn spinout Neuralert Technologies‘ stroke detection wristband has been selected for TIME’s List of the Best Inventions of 2022.
The lightweight, non-invasive wristband device can detect the onset of asymmetric movement (a hallmark indication of stroke) in as little as 15 minutes, and automatically alert medical staff to spring into action. The FDA designated the wristband a breakthrough device last year, and now Neuralert is targeting commercial release in 2023.
Neuralert was originally founded by former Penn Engineering professor James Weimer and Steven Messe, MD, Professor of Neurology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
