Forest Devices

Forest Devices helps first responders detect stroke and triage patients to the right stroke hospital.

Medical Devices and Equipment

Forest Devices is developing AlphaStroke, a device that helps first responders in early detection of both Stroke and Large Vessel Occlusions (LVO), which is a severe stroke with a care pathway available at far fewer hospitals. AlphaStroke will improve outcomes by decreasing time-to-treatment for these patients while also increasing the number of patients eligible for the time-limited, gold standard-of-care interventions. Getting the AlphaStroke device to market faster can prevent disability and save the lives of thousands of patients. Saving time is saving brain cells. An hour delay in treatment can be the difference between living independently or living in a requiring skilled nursing assistance for the rest of your life.
