Samsung Delves Deeper Into the Field of Healthcare With the EDSAP

samsung-strokeSamsung moves further into the field of healthcare with the development of the Early Detection Sensor and Algorithm Package (EDSAP). The EDSAP pairs a flexible, dry EEG device with a smartphone or tablet app that can deliver the reading and results of a test within a minute. Samsung claims that the app will be helpful in identifying patients who have suffered a stroke. The EDSAP headset delivers much higher quality EEG readings than current headsets because of the high-sensitivity dry electrodes and an algorithm which compares the current reading against a bank of EEG readings of patients who have suffered strokes in the past. In addition to paramedic and emergency room use of the device to detect strokes, Samsung predicts that patients themselves can use the device not only to determine if they have had a mild stroke, but also to monitor stress and analyze sleep patterns. The EDSAP is still in the prototype stage, but the company is hopeful about its potential uses.
