Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability in India. The estimated adjusted prevalence rate of stroke range, 84-262/100,000 in rural and 334-424/100,000 in urban areas. Stroke can be effectively treated by giving medication to dissolve the clot. The window period within which this treatment has to be initiated is four and a half hour of initiation of symptoms. However, most of the patients are not able to recognize the symptoms. This leads to death and disabilities.
Gamifying stroke symptoms, diagnosis and treatment has the potential to help in creation of awareness and prevent death and disabilities.
