This High-Tech Visor Uses Radio Waves to Examine Patients' Brain Health

A Californian company by the name of Cerebrotech Medical Systems has created a futuristic, high-tech visor that is designed to make the process of stroke detection easier and more effective for doctors.

When worn on the patient's head, this high-tech visor uses a method known as volumetric impedance phase shift spectroscopy, in which it transmits low-energy radio waves that travel through the brain fluid, which alters their frequency. The visor then analyzes the frequency changes to detect whether the patient has suffered a stroke.

This stroke-detecting visor has been cleared by the FDA, and has been proven in tests to be far more accurate than conventional stroke-testing tools, making this a great example of bold wearable technology applications showcasing the potential to save lives while also making diagnostic processes more cost-efficient.
