Medfield Diagnostics har som mål att underlätta diagnostiseringen av stroke och huvudtrauma. Om man på ett tidigt stadium kan avgöra om patienten har en stroke eller inte, skulle behandlingsprocessen kunna påskyndas och rätt behandling sättas in betydligt tidigare än idag. Därigenom kan det elimineras mycket lidande hos drabbade patienter och det skulle kunna sparas mycket stora vård- och rehabiliteringskostnader för samhället.
