Shaun Patel + REACT Neuro
REACT Neuro is a digital health company reimagining how we diagnose and treat the brain.
They’ve successfully digitized the entire neurological exam using VR with built-in sensors to track eye movements, record voice, and capture body movements. Today, REACT’s technology takes less than a minute to run a full brain health diagnostic and figure out a person’s attention, memory, and mood. They’ve even developed the most comprehensive brain health platform with 20+ digital exams.
REACT’s wide range of applications span from tracking healthy aging and performance to monitoring diseases like Alzheimer’s. Their sleek product headset is already being used in senior living homes, the military and concierge health systems. They are well on their way to achieving their mission to democratize access to the highest-quality brain medical care from the comfort of your own home.
