Stroke is the second leading cause of death of people over 60 and the fifth leading cause of death in people aged 15 - 59.In adults, stroke is one of the leading cause of long-term disability irrespective of sex, ethnicity or location.
Sixteen million people a year experience a stroke. One in six people experience a stroke in their lifetime and someone dies of a stroke every six seconds.
Stroke can occur at any age and at any time.
“The great advantage of the Stroke Riskometer is that it allows a person to calculate their risk of stroke within the next 5-10 years. Armed with this information, an individual can take action, with the help of their doctor, to reduce their risk of having a stroke or a heart attack. Stroke is much easier to prevent than treat. As one of my patients stated, the best stroke is the stroke you never had!” Prof. Stephen Davis, President, World Stroke Organization.
Stroke Riskometer is the brainchild of Professor Valery Feigin, from AUT’s National Institute for Stroke and Applied Neurosciences, to reduce the incidences of stroke and save lives all over the world. It was brought to market by AUT Enterprises Ltd – the technology transfer office of AUT – a University based in New Zealand.
