In High Income Countries:

Epilepsy is diagnosed with an electroencephalogram (EEG) machine, which are common. A neurologist interprets the results and makes a diagnosis. A seizure medication is prescribed, and most patients live seizure free.

In LMICS
(Low and Middle-Income countries):

EEG machines are expensive to buy ($15k min), difficult to operate, and are rare. Neurologists are rare (some nations just 1 per 5 million + people). Medicine is cheap and accessible, while Diagnosis is lacking

The world’s most common brain disease (WHO)
0%
80% of people with epilepsy live in low and middle-income countries (LMICs)
Affects >50M people globally
0%
>75% (30M) of these people do not receive treatment

An affordable, Bluetooth enabled electrode cap

An app for data collection and upload to cloud

A Quality Control (QC) algorithm to enable clean data collection by non-expert workers

Telemedicine via app/cloud enables remote diagnosis by neurologist

A diagnostic support algorithm that reduces neurologist time to diagnose from 45 to 10 minutes

1- Low Cost of Acquisition = Point of care diagnostic
  • Increases availability of EEG diagnostics
  • Reduces cost of diagnosis, brings hardware to point of care
2- Reduces need for trained staff
  • No EEG technician required for EEG data collection
  • Reduces staff costs through automation
3- Delivers access to experts and uses AI as a force-multiplier
  • Transfers and interprets data to remote neurologists, removing need for travel
  • Can diagnose more patients with the same amount of work

Private Clinics/Hospitals

  • Provide majority of care in LMICs
  • Mid- to Low end facilities do not have EEG
  • Can increase revenue from added diagnostic
  • Specialist revenue-sharing with hospitals

BC’s Solution / USP

  • Low cost of acquisition
  • Immediate revenues from scans
  • Portable and can be transported to remote locations
  • Scans can be downloaded in reader formats

KENYA / East Africa

  • High Epilepsy Burden / Strong Middle Class
  • Established regulations for startup/med-tech
  • Test market for expansion to E/W Africa

INDIA / South Asia

  • High Epilepsy Burden / Strong Middle Class
  • Excellent market potential
  • Government policies driving tech adoption

Diagnosing Epilepsy Leads to Healthy Lives
  • Neurological disorders are the leading cause of years lost to disability
  • Rates of epilepsy are substantially higher in LMICs due to parasites, injuries, and other issues
  • Epilepsy often affects children <10 years old
  • Without treatment their lives are disrupted by seizures
