Promising results for bioimpedance as a tool for early detection of stroke

The technology of bioimpedance seems to be possible to use to discover the effects of a stroke already in an acute phase. This is shown in a dissertation at KTH School of Technology and Health.
– Early discovery and identification of acute stroke could enable the start of treatment already in the ambulance transport of the patient, says Fernando Seoane, Associate Professor in Medical Engineering.
