South African – Swedish effort on pre-hospital diagnostics of stroke and traumatic injuries

The purpose of the present project is the implementation of cost efficient, easy to use, diagnostic tools for stroke and trauma in the sub-Saharan Africa, where there are very limited resources in terms of medical personnel, hospitals and diagnostic devices. We have developed and clinically tested a diagnostics system intended for the around 200,000 ambulances and the 30 million yearly stroke and traumatic brain injury patients, around the world. For the patients the system will contribute to faster more adequate care. For the society this product will help reducing the large cost of stroke and traumatic brain injuries. While of uttermost importance for the western world, less developed countries may come to benefit even more due to the potentially low cost and easy handling of the technology used.
