NEW YORK, NY, USA, October 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ – Evoke Neuroscience announces it has been selected to present to the attendees of this year’s Medical Technology Innovation Forum on October 29th in Newport Beach, California.
Evoke will present its eVox System, which aids physicians in the diagnosis of memory loss and other cognitive disorders, to a diverse group of clinicians, investors and healthcare industry professionals.
Evoke has assembled an executive team of industry veterans and innovators to lead the research, development and commercialization of its next-generation technology.
As of October 4th, 2018, Marinela Gombosev has been promoted to the position of Chief Executive Officer, bringing expertise in medical device operations, product development, marketing and commercialization. Marinela has been EVP of Operations and Marketing at Evoke for four years. Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer, James Thompson, Ph.D., will continue to ensure that Evoke’s technology is grounded in scientific validity and is maximizing clinical utility for physicians. Peter E. Raymond will lead the company’s next generation research and development as Chief Research and Development Officer. Peter E. Raymond has been named an IBM Global Platinum Entrepreneur for his work in Cognitive Artificial Intelligence (AI), developed the world’s first biometric heart failure simulator, and has been featured by Apple for innovation in healthcare. Co-founder and former Chief Executive Officer, David Hagedorn, Ph.D., will remain on the Evoke Neuroscience Board of Directors.
“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 presents a solid foundation for future development to aid doctors in the diagnosis of cognitive diseases such as dementia.”
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 diagnosis.
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.
