Transforming Acute Stroke Detection through Real Time Neurological Monitoring

What is the purpose of this trial?

The objective of this project is to develop a monitoring system for the early detection of stroke in at-risk subjects. The technical system is composed of a wearable sensor with the capacity to collect and to stream motion data via Bluetooth technology to a tablet for data storage. The specific aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of an existing technical system, currently used in seizure monitoring, when applied to stroke. The technical system will be tested both in patients who have suffered a stroke as well as in normal healthy volunteers, with the efficacy analysis based on the system's ability to detect person-specific and disease-specific (i.e., stroke-specific) patterns of motion.
