NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, November 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ – Evoke Neuroscience won the popular vote by attendees and took home the People’s Choice Award at OCTANe’s 13th Annual Medical Technology Innovation Forum. Recognized for its bold vision of eradicating dementia, Evoke Neuroscience was one of 8 companies selected out of 113 who applied to present via the OCTANe LaunchPad program.
Evoke presented its eVox® System, which aids physicians in the diagnosis of memory loss and other cognitive disorders, to a diverse audience of clinicians, investors, and healthcare industry professionals.
“To date, our eVox System has been used to measure the brain health of over 45,000 patients in primary care clinics and specialty practice settings in the United States.” said Marinela Gombosev, Chief Executive Officer at Evoke Neuroscience. “Our eVox platform helps physicians detect and diagnose memory loss sooner, which means more time for a successful intervention.”
Historically, most providers have relied on self-report questionnaires and effort-based computerized testing for determining a diagnosis. But to understand cognitive health, and more specifically memory, it is important to measure key biomarkers of the brain itself. The eVox® System delivers objective and stable biomarkers that may aid in the diagnosis of cognitive diseases such as dementia.
Primary and specialty care physicians can use eVox® to acquire these biomarkers, in-office, via a non-invasive procedure performed with minimal staff training and time. Doctors should use their professional judgment in determining when the eVox System is appropriate to aid in diagnosis.
