It is a low cost, easy to use and portable device that do not need additional equipment, and provides doctors in primary care, emergency rooms, hospital units and even in their private practices with straightforward intelligence to early diagnose these neurological and mental disorders. It has a disruptive potential and will be a leap forward in diagnosing these illnesses.
With OSCANN the probability of right prognosis in the primary care practice or in the emergency room will be, in some cases, up to 50% higher than with current praxis. Moreover, the probability of false negatives in diagnosis in early stages will be notably reduced, contributing to focus medical efforts from the onset on the correct disease and its specific treatment.
In addition, our intention is for OSCANN to become a source of bio-markers data: users (physicians) will have the option of uploading to a cloud-based application data from their practice (anonymity and privacy assured!) to create a rich bio-markers database for the medical community. This being a first attempt to crowd diagnosing as an assistance for neurologists throughout the world.
