Korwave is a mobile, easy-to-use EEG (Electroencephalogram) that discretely fits on top of a user's head. It continuously monitors brain activity, and can automatically detect and report seizures when they occur, giving the user a greater sense of independence and dignity that they hadn't otherwise known.
Founded by engineers with a passion for helping others, Korwave was born from a desire to better mankind through thoughtful and innovative technology.
Leader / Engineer / Co-Founder
Because my sister was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 4, I have had a keen understanding of the difficulties those with this condition face. My goal is to make a difference in this world through the application of science and unbounded compassion. Korwave was an idea that came naturally to me after seeing the trials that she went through. I wanted a way to create a layer of safety and freedom for children like my sister, and Korwave has met that challenge.
Engineer / Co-Founder
I came to America five years ago as an immigrant from Vietnam with the dream of changing the world. I joined the National Guard, and began schooling as an electrical engineer, with the lofty goal of creating a device that could help others. After meeting Patrick and Juan, helping children through Korwave became my calling and I am excited to work on a device that can radically change their lives for the better.
We are looking for people with epilepsy to try out Korwave and let us know how it works. If you are interested in testing Korwave, contact us through the button below.
