Digital brain health goes global: Savonix raises $5.1 million to commercialize mobile neurocognitive assessment in the US, China and Japan

Savonix gets $5.1M to advance dig­i­tal neu­rocog­ni­tive assess­ment (Mobi­Health News):

San Fran­cis­co-based Savonix, mak­er of an app for neu­rocog­ni­tive assess­ment, has raised $5.1 mil­lion in a new round of fund­ing. Dig­iTx Part­ners led the round with addi­tion­al con­tri­bu­tion from ReThink Impact.

The com­pa­ny, which was found­ed in 2015, is made up of neu­ro­sci­en­tists and gam­ing experts. Its prod­uct, Savonix Mobile, is a 30-minute brain train­ing and test­ing app based on exist­ing clin­i­cal guide­lines and pro­ce­dures. It’s designed to replace a cost­ly, often time-con­sum­ing process that involves a clin­i­cian work­ing with pen and paper to screen patients. The app is avail­able inter­na­tion­al­ly via health­care licens­es and third par­ty partnerships…Specifically, Savonix will use the new fund­ing to expand into new inter­na­tion­al mar­kets includ­ing Chi­na and Japan.

In addi­tion to the fund­ing, Savonix announced some new strate­gic part­ner­ships. The com­pa­ny will work with New York Uni­ver­si­ty (NYU), CereS­can, Proove Bio­sciences, Alka­h­est and Senes­cence Life Sci­ences to estab­lish a new gold stan­dard for cog­ni­tive assess­ment.”
