FightTheStroke – Winner of Johnson & Johnson supported Social Entrepreneurship Award for Digital Healthcare

FightTheStroke is the winner of the seif Award for Digital Healthcare, supported by Johnson & Johnson and presented at the award ceremony in Zurich, on 2 October 2017.

Roberto D'Angelo and Francesca Fedeli are the co-founders of FightTheStroke, a Social Enterprise that supports the cause of young stroke survivors. They developed Mirrorable, an interactive platform that helps children with perinatal stroke to learn motor skills while observing. The tool increases the level of effectiveness of the healing process for children, as it can be used at home in a favorable environment.

The Jury was impressed by the way FightTheStroke combines some of the most pioneering research findings on the human brain to improve care for young stroke victims using technology while empowering families. Successful therapy can make a significant difference to these children. Both, the innovative digital rehabilitation therapy solution and its high impact on children’s lives were strong reasons for the Jury to honor FightTheStroke with this year’s seif Award for Digital Healthcare.

Francesca Fedeli was delighted to receive the Award and will invest the prize money of CHF 10’000to further improve the platform and spread it more globally.

The seif Award for Digital Healthcare rewards innovative social enterprises that create social and health benefits. 171 social entrepreneurs  participated in this year’s competition and the finalists pitched on stage at the award ceremony in front of an audience of more than 200 people.
