Before you decide to participate,
you should know that…
- You won’t have to give us your name
or any other details that identify you.
- This should take about 5-10 minutes,
but you can stop any time you want to.

You will be asked to record your responses to
a few questions.
We hope your voice samples will help us learn to detect stroke earlier.
SUMMARY AND INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this venture by Perceive Brain Health Ltd. (the "Company") is to collect data that will help the Company learn to use voice analysis to detect strokes in real time (the "Venture"). In brief, you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire and provide short recordings of your voice. All of the data collected from you will be anonymized. We will not store it or use it in any way except for the purpose of this Venture.
Please note that you have no obligation to participate in the Venture and that you can decide to terminate your participation at any time. Below, we provide information to help you understand the purpose of the Venture, what you will be asked to do, the possible risks and benefits, and your rights as a volunteer. Please read this information carefully. You can then decide if you want to participate. By clicking the Approve button and providing the voice samples, you are stating that you have read and considered this consent waiver and are comfortable with what is being asked of you as a participant. This process is called “informed consent.”
We are interested in identifying suspected stroke earlier and more accurately than currently possible, so that a greater number of individuals who experience stroke can receive help in time to get optimal medical attention. We believe that certain voice patterns can help us identify stroke in real time, and hope that exploring and learning these patterns will allow us to reduce difficulties associated with stroke.
During the survey, you will be asked to provide minimal demographic and medical information. You will then be asked specifically whether or not you have ever experienced a stroke and, if so, you will be asked a few questions about the stroke. Finally, regardless of whether you have experienced a stroke or not, you will be asked to provide a number of short voice samples. We aim to collect voice samples from random, everyday speech.
Your information and voice samples will be saved anonymously. We will not know your identity. At the end of the recording process, you may choose to provide an email address. This address will be saved separately and will not be linked to your recording or to the information you provide. If you do choose to provide the address, it will allow us to reach you directly in the future – to provide you with information or ask if you would like to participate in additional studies.
This procedure should take less than 15 minutes to complete and will be completely anonymous. We ask that you do not include any personal or identifiable information during your voice recordings.
Your participation in this Venture is voluntary, and you can refuse to participate or withdraw at any time with absolutely no repercussions.
RISKS AND BENEFITS
This survey does not involve any intervention or physical contact, but only gathers voice samples and some basic data. As with any procedure, there is always the potential for some stress and discomfort, but we have not identified any particular risk associated with participation in this Venture that is greater than what you experience in your daily life. There is a slight risk of loss of confidentiality if a researcher could identify your voice. However, this risk is highly unlikely to occur. If you change your mind or feel uncomfortable during the study, you can stop at any time.
Your participation is strictly voluntary and there is no anticipated direct benefit to you for participating. However, the information collected from this research may help others in the future through development of technology used to identify stroke earlier than we can today.
We will keep your information confidential and will not divulge any non-anonymized data. Anonymized data, including anonymous speech samples and survey responses, may be shared with third parties. Your data is anonymous because there are no means to connect your identity to your speech sample or survey responses.
