We are pleased to congratulate Dr. Uri Gabbay of the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine at TAU School of Public Health and co-founder of CardioScale, for winning the US Department of Defense and Israel Ministry of Defense Anti-Terror Technology Start-up Competition.
In a competitition with over 200 entries, CardioScale won the $100,000 grand prize at the “2018 Combating Terrorism Technology Startup Challenge” (CTTSC3). CardioScale developed an early detection device for cardiovascular deterioration that intends to save lives of casualties in general and particularly victims of terrorism and mass casualty events. The core invention is a CVRI-cardiovascular reserve index derived from the novel hypothesis of a joint study by Dr. Gabbay and Prof. Benzi Bobrovsky on momentary cardiovascular reserve and its measures of estimation.
