Samsung Reveal New Wearable Stroke Detecting Device
Tech giant Samsung have revealed that some of the company’s engineers have been developing a new wearable stroke detecting device. They started the project 2 years ago as part of Samsung’s Creativity Lab, where some of the top engineers have been working to create the new wearable technology.
Samsung have the prototype which they have called the Early Detection Sensor & Algorithm Package (EDSAP) and will detect a stroke using brainwaves. Samsung explain how the device will work on their Samsung Tomorrow website and we have outlined it below.
EDSAP’s sensors are placed on a headset, collecting and wirelessly transmitting brainwave data to a mobile app, where the algorithm analyzes the brainwaves and ultimately determines the likelihood of a stroke, all within a 60-second time span. Additionally, by tracking brainwaves for longer durations, EDSAP can leverage its brainwave analysis capabilities to provide additional information related to neurological health, such as stress, anxiety and sleep patterns.
