16 million people suffer stroke each year.
5 million people develop epilepsy.
Another 6 million have a moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury.
Here’s what NeuroSpring is doing to combat these neurological disorders,
and what you can do to help.
NeuroSpring is developing new medical technologies to diagnose and treat the major neurological conditions that plague the world.
The Artificial Intelligence
The Virtual Neurologist is a medical device that can diagnose neurological emergencies in ambulances and hospital emergency departments everywhere. (The Virtual Neurologist is in collaboration with Faucetworks LLC. No product is currently available for sale.)
The Facial Nerve
Facial nerve stimulation is a promising treatment for conditions of brain ischemia such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, and cardiac arrest. NeuroSpring is a leading authority in preclinical testing of invasive and non-invasive facial nerve stimulation and NeuroSpring is an owner of Nervive Inc, which is developing the VitalFlow™ non-invasive facial nerve stimulator for the treatment of stroke.
NeuroSpring is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity with a unique mission: To advance neuroscientific research and training that drives improved healthcare for the underserved. Here are some facts about us:
