Making stroke decisons smarter, and reducing delays in critical treatment.

Prehospital mis-identification of stroke is the single largest contributor to delayed and missed stroke treatments.

exams are subjective

Of the 4M stroke exams performed by first responders per year, 30-50% of stroke patients are misdiagnosed and transported to the wrong hospital.

hospitals are not equal

Only 5% of all hospitals can treat major stroke emergencies, and only 20% can treat moderate stroke emergencies so patients are oftened transfered to another hospital.

treatment is delayed

For major stroke patients, a misdiagnosis causes a median delay of 110 minutes, and decreases the likelihood of receiving the most efficacious stroke treatment by 90%.

Forest Devices has developed a disruptive technology: the first objective, electronically-determined test for stroke for use by EMS.
