Our solution is a Catheter-based Stroke Thrombectomy Device (CSTD) powered by AI and nanorobotics for minimally invasive removal of thrombus blockages from the brain's blood vessels.

What specific problem are you solving?

When it comes to treating stroke, time is of the essence. Every second counts when it comes to removing a thrombus blockage from the brain's blood vessels, and the longer it takes to do so, the higher the risk of permanent brain damage or even death. Unfortunately, current stroke treatment options are limited and not always effective. That's where our Catheter-based Stroke Thrombectomy Device (CSTD) powered by AI and nanorobotics comes in.


The scale of the problem we're working to solve is massive. According to the World Health Organization, stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide and a leading cause of disability. In fact, someone in the world has a stroke every two seconds, and over 80 million people have had a stroke or live with its long-term consequences. In the United States alone, stroke costs the healthcare system over $34 billion annually.


One of the main factors contributing to this problem is that current stroke treatment options are limited. While there are FDA-approved thrombectomy devices on the market, they can be difficult to use and may not always be effective at removing thrombus blockages. Additionally, some patients may not be able to receive traditional thrombectomy treatment due to medical reasons, leaving them with few options for treatment.



Our CSTD aims to address these issues by providing a safe, effective, and minimally invasive way to remove thrombus blockages from the brain's blood vessels. By using AI and nanorobotics technology, our device can locate and precisely target blockages while minimizing damage to surrounding tissue.


But our solution doesn't just benefit patients - it also benefits healthcare professionals who use it. Our CSTD is designed for easy use and can be inserted into blood vessels using TUS technique - saving valuable time during emergency situations.


We believe that our CSTD has the potential to revolutionize stroke treatment worldwide by providing a more effective and efficient way to remove thrombus blockages from the brain's blood vessels. And with the right funding and support, we can make this vision a reality. 

What is your solution?

The Capsule Stroke Treatment Device (CSTD) is a medical device designed to treat stroke by suctioning and destroying thrombus blockages inside the brain's blood vessels. The device is a capsule-shaped mini-robot that sits inside the blood vessels and is controlled remotely by an AI algorithm.

Inserting the CSTD into the brain without surgery or pain requires a minimally invasive approach.
