Otivio : Medical Device for Combating Hyperthermia in Acute Stroke

Do you know that in the USA alone, approx. 150,000 people die from stroke annually? Stroke is also the leading cause of serious long term disability. Around 1/3 of stroke patients suffer from hyperthermia which is an abnormal increase in body temperature. Otivia is a conceptual medical device specifically designed to cool down and stabilizing body temperature of stroke patients suffering from hyperthermia. It works by increasing blood flow in the arm while at the same time drawing heat from it. The blood flow in the arm alone is enough to cool down the entire body, avoiding abnormal fever and other dangers associated with it.
