«Samsung» has developed a device EDSAP preventing strokes
The Korean giant Samsung is not only developing smartphones, tablets, smart watches and other equipment, the company also creates a variety of experimental device designed to improve the quality of life and take care of his health.
Recently, experts of the research division of the Creativity Lab, the company “Samsung” has announced the creation of a portable device for Early Detection Sensor & Algorithm Package (EDSAP), which can be used to predict and prevent strokes.
Light and easy to manage device Early Detection Sensor & Algorithm Package reads the electrical impulses of the brain and transmits them to the mobile app on your smartphone or tablet, for subsequent processing. Thus, you will be able to check the status of your heart muscle and in the case of the risk of stroke to go to the doctor and then the doctor will prescribe you the appropriate treatment, after reviewing the testimony of the application.
In addition, if you use EDSAP for a long time, you can learn a lot about not only your heart, but also on the status and quality of sleep, the frequency of the test stress and so on. For analysis of readings takes only 60 seconds, so daily use will not be difficult.
At the moment, the Early Detection Sensor & Algorithm Package is developing, and has not even conducted a full-scale device testing. But now scientists believe that the device can be used for diagnostics and research not only strokes but also other cardiovascular diseases. Although when EDSAP was created, medical professionals were skeptical. “We turned to neuroscientists with a question: is it possible to create such a device? They treated us pretty dismissive. But we still really wanted to try to bring this project to life,” explained one of the leaders of the project Si-Hun Lim.
