Avertus is a company focused on providing tools for physicians to provide better patient care and treatment and researchers who are seeking new and improved treatments. Its first platform is a high frequency wireless brain activity monitor with a first application for seizure pattern detection. This will help physicians assess types and causes of seizures as well as response to drugs and other treatments and longer term help deliver future treatment technologies. With support from the SOSCIP and University of Toronto researchers, we will also implement the first commercially available high performance distributed computing platform for easy to use biomarker discovery tools and both batch and real time big data analytic capability for clinicians and researchers.
