RomSoft to Sponsor Hack4Life, Be a Stroke Hero Hackathon

When stroke occurs, physical and psychical abilities of the person affected are partially if not totally impaired. If the person is alone or in the company of people who are not trained to recognize the signs of a stroke, help and intervention usually occurs too late and the effects on the brain may become irreversible, with death risk increasing dramatically.

Could the latest developments in technology help in such situations? How?

We are ready to find out this Saturday, February 15 2020, at the Hack4Life, Be a Stroke Hero hackathon, organized by the iMAGO-MOL Cluster and the Faculty of Computer Science Iasi.

The Challenge

The Hack4Life, Be a Stroke Hero hackathon is dedicated to developing a mobile application to help recognize a cerebral vascular accident (commonly known as stroke) in its earliest stages and also issuing a medical alert, directed towards the closest emergency units in the region, together with data about precise location of the patient.
