A game-changing ubiquitous brain alarm.
Time is brain– early detection of evolving neurological
processes can save lives and improve outcomes.
Sense is well-proven in experimental studies
and is based on solid scientific principles.
Sense is a non-invasive, disposable device that continuously monitors
brain activity primarily in the intensive care unit.
4 million annual ICU admissions in the U.S, 25% of these experience neurological complications.
Half a million ICU admissions are due to brain diseases, 75 % of these experience clinical worsening due to brain bleeding or swelling.
Beyond the ICU, there is no convenient, non-invasive method for brain monitoring in ambulances, ED, or OR
Currently, neurological complications in sedated or critically
ill patients are discovered after they have occurred.
In current practice, every patient admitted for hemorrhagic stroke or TBI gets a baseline CT scan typically followed by a repeat scan within 24 hours after admission. If the patient shows poor neurological status either before or after that time, physicians often order additional CT scans. Because patients that are comatose or otherwise unresponsive cannot respond to questions and commands, their severity is defaulted on assessment scales and they generally receive additional CT scans due to the unreliability of their neurological exam.
Doctors can use it in the field, ICU, OR, ED, or anywhere where patients risk neurological worsening.
Offers better and earlier information to trigger intervention.
Continuously monitors brain activity, which reduces the need for unnecessary CT scans.
A non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) sensor that detects changes in the brain
including: Hemmorage/bleeding, Brain swelling (cerebral edema), and Seizures.
The Sense device transmits a low power tailored electro-magnetic (EM) pulse in the RF range across the patient’s brain, and detects changes in the signal that may indicate acute hemorrhage, brain swelling, or seizure. The device consists of three parts: (1) an antenna array, (2) the driving electronics for the array, and (3) a spectrum analyzer coupled with a computer that analyzes the EM signals and detects changes in brain status.
