Since medical imaging methods such as MRI and CT can only be carried through by specialists, disorders in the brain are often discovered at a late stage. My answer to improve this situation is Hemolite, a medical device that allows an easy measurement of cerebral blood flows. Its aim is to empower family doctors in detecting changes in brain activities. This starting point might then initialise more accurate examinations.
It applies near infrared spectroscopy, an already established medical imaging method, and puts it in a new context: Contrary to regular NIRS settings with many receivers and emitters, Hemolite is designed for a mobile use.
