Brainomix and Nanoflex Robotics have been granted funding to collaborate on the development of an AI-powered integrated remote diagnosis and treatment platform for stroke patients. The partnership between the two companies will begin in 2024 as part of the UK-Switzerland Bilateral Collaborative R&D programme.
The project aims to create an AI-assisted magnetic navigation system for robotic surgical tools. Brainomix will contribute its AI-enabled diagnostic imaging capabilities, while Nanoflex Robotics will provide expertise in precise magnetic navigation technology.
The goal of the project is to develop a system that enables remote thrombectomy, a procedure to remove blood clots, thus transforming stroke treatment options and improving outcomes for patients. By leveraging the power of artificial intelligence, the partnership seeks to enhance Nanoflex Robotics’ cutting-edge magnetic robotic navigation system.
The project has been granted a total of £400,000 for Brainomix and 400,000 Swiss Francs (£364,000) for Nanoflex Robotics through grants administered by Innovate UK and Innosuisse, Switzerland’s innovation agency.
Dr. George Harston, Chief Medical and Innovation Officer at Brainomix, expressed gratitude for the support of Innovate UK in funding their collaboration with Nanoflex Robotics. He highlighted the potential of the project to leverage AI to enhance stroke treatment options and improve patient outcomes.
Christophe Chautems, Chief Technology Officer of Nanoflex Robotics, emphasized the importance of timely treatment for stroke patients and the potential of their remote robotics platform to increase access to mechanical thrombectomies. By reducing delays in clot removal, the platform aims to improve the chances of post-stroke functional independence.
A recently published report from Oxford Academic Health Science Network showed that Brainomix’s e-Stroke AI platform led to an average treatment rate for stroke patients that was 55% higher than the national average.
The collaboration between Brainomix and Nanoflex Robotics holds promise for revolutionizing stroke treatment through the use of AI-powered technology. This partnership has the potential to significantly improve outcomes for stroke patients and give them a greater chance of living independent lives after experiencing a stroke.
