Detecting strokes. Early.
Alva Health is establishing the standard of care in remote stroke monitoring
Early stroke detection and treatment is essential for better patient outcomes
When a stroke occurs, Time is Brain.
Yet 90% of stroke victims do not get medical care in a timely manner.
Growing problem for aging US households
1 in 3 US adults have at least one stroke risk factor, and 700,000 will suffer an ischemic stroke each year
Loss of Independence
More than 50% of stroke survivors are chronically disabled and require specialized care
Avoidable healthcare spend
US healthcare system spends over $53B annually on long hospital stays, treatment, rehab and lost productivity
A major indicator of stroke is the sudden onset of disability that affects only one side of the body.
But symptoms can be subtle, assessments are subjective, and patients may be too disabled to call 911 until it's too late.
Our patented wearables work around the clock to detect signatures indicative of stroke, and immediately connect users with emergency responders.
Because every minute counts.
Alva Health is a Yale University technology spinout, founded by a team of stroke experts, PhD scientists, and engineers with the vision to revolutionize stroke care and the skills to build, validate and commercialize game-changing neurotechnologies.
