Company description

Voyage Biomedical prevents brain damage using novel cooling technology. Every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a stroke. When the flow of blood to part of the brain is cut off, time becomes vital to prevent damage and even death. Voyage Biomedical’s therapeutic cooling technology slows the clock on brain cell death, giving doctors additional time to treat these patients. In proof-of-concept studies, their technology has already prevented brain damage in human-sized animals undergoing 15 minutes with no blood to the brain — an otherwise unsurvivable massive stroke.

Backed by Y Combinator and several prominent medtech angel investors, Voyage is on a mission to end brain damage from stroke.
