About Alva Health

Alva Health is developing a wearable neuromonitoring platform with the first indication in real-time stroke

detection. We are a Yale University spinout company that is backed by Techstars, the National Science

Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Alva Health’s mission is to develop a wearable medical

device to monitor stroke at home and to allow for the initiation of emergency response in a timely

manner. Our patented technology uses wearable sensors to continuously monitor and detect

hemiparesis, one of the hallmarks of stroke onset. Once deployed, our solution will dramatically improve

stroke emergency response and increase the number of patients receiving IV tPA and other reperfusion

therapies in the acute setting. Alva Health was recently named the Grand Prize winner out of 1100

development phases.
