Annual Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Health and Medical Technology Products and Companies
BETHESDA, Md., May 11, 2022-(BUSINESS WIRE)-Brain-assessment device innovator BrainScope, today announced that it has been selected as the “Best New Diagnostic Technology Solution” in the sixth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program hosted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that identifies leading companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market.
The BrainScope is an FDA-cleared, handheld, Class 2 medical device that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology to identify target biomarkers of structural and functional brain injury in patients with suspected mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
BrainScope allows clinicians to triage mTBI at the point of care without radiation and has shown a 30% -60% reduction in unnecessary head Computerized Tomography (CT). BrainScope is suitable for patients presenting in emergency departments, urgent care centers, and concussion clinics, as well as patients who play sports or in the military. In less than 20 minutes from patient preparation to result, BrainScope provides an easy-to-use, intuitive tool for the operator and instantaneous accurate, actionable outcomes for the medical professional.
“It is an honor to receive this award from MedTech Breakthrough. It testifies to the work of our entire team as we strive to improve brain health by providing objective diagnostic insights that enable better performance. patient care, “said Drs. Diku Mandavia, Chief Medical Officer of BrainScope. “The BrainScope helps answer important clinician and patient questions — whether the patient is suffering from a brain hemorrhage or concussion, and whether they are ready to resume normal activities. The time of this 21st century that approach couldn’t be better. ”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to recognize the importance and recognition of innovation, diligence and achievement in various categories of health and medical technology, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR) , Virtual Care, Medical. Devices, Medical Data and more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,900 nominations from more than 15 different countries around the world.
“Traumatic brain injuries are at near-epidemic levels in the U.S. with five million head injury patients receiving care in emergency departments each year and while CT remains the standard of care. care, these scans can only detect the presence or absence of brain bleeding and may .not detect disturbance, “said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “BrainScope is the only system that helps fully examine the spectrum of mild traumatic brain injury including brain hemorrhage and tremor. Recognized in our sixth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program.”
BrainScope’s FDA-cleared technology has been uniquely validated, published, and patented, through 29 clinical studies, more than 14,000 subject evaluations, 8 FDA and 2 Health Canada clearances, MDSAP and ISO13485 certifications, 31 peer- reviewed publications and 90 issued global patents.
BrainScope’s FDA-cleared, EEG-powered algorithms help clinicians prevent brain hemorrhage, assess concussion and concussion severity, and assist with accurate diagnosis and referral along the continuum of care.
BrainScope is a medical neurotechnology company that improves brain health by providing purposeful, diagnostic insights that enable better patient care. BrainScope leads the rapid and objective evaluation of brain-related conditions, ranging from mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), using multiple integrated assessment capabilities, artificial intelligence (AI), and digitalization. The company’s technology supports the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Select Wisely® campaign to avoid CT scans of the head in emergency department patients with minor head injury. BrainScope’s innovative EEG-based, AI-derived algorithms empower physicians to quickly perform accurate head injury assessments, responding to the full spectrum of traumatic brain injuries from structural (brain bleed) to functional (concussion) injuries, which gives for the first time a full picture of the damage, and does so in little time and without radiation.
