Samsung develops technology for early detection of strokes




A group of developers within Samsung is engaged in the development of an algorithm that makes use of signals from the brain to predict the likelihood of a stroke. The brain signals that Samsung captures can be read with a smartphone.

Samsung calls its technology the Early Detection Sensor & Algorithm Package. It consists of software and a headset with sensors to put a user on his head. With the headset to be measured electrical signals derived from the brains, which may be then passed to a smartphone. Based on the pattern of these signals can smartphone determine the risk of stroke and possibly with a warning.

According to the manufacturer, the algorithm needs only 60 seconds to determine the risk of stroke. This is considerably shorter than the equipment currently used in hospitals, according to Samsung. Incidentally, with the technology would also be possible to provide the user with other information such as sleep patterns, stress level, and ‘neurological health.

The manufacturer also states that the required sensors headset is easy to wear. The algorithm would have been validated by the use of the data from a large number of patients who has had a stroke.

The EDSAP algorithm should also be used in the future for the analysis of signals arising from the heart are. Because such electrical signals are stronger than the brains Samsung expects to book in this field success.
