A Senior researcher from the University of Bolton is working on a potentially life-saving invention which uses microwave technology to detect whether people are at risk of having a stroke.
Professor Elias Siores, director of research at the university, said: “Where as a person may show symptoms before they have a heart attack, it’s likely a person with a heavily blocked carotid artery will be oblivious to their high risk of stroke, right up until the moment the stroke happens.
“But just as patients can now check their own blood pressure, it makes sense for people to monitor their carotid artery’s health at home, with an instrument the size of a mobile phone.”
