Our Solution: Early Detection

Alzheimer disease is often recognized by patients from its early symptoms such as memory loss, difficulty completing familiar tasks, confusion with time or place. However the first physiological changes in the brain happens a decade before. With our technology, we want to redefine the patient journey by screening the population. Such screening will enable the patients to take preventive measure that can delay or avoid the onset of Alzheimer. What is more early screening allows the patient to be closely monitored and thus treated in time making the treatment more effective.
