What is RIBURST?
RIBURST is an international collaborative study that aims to better understand the risk factors associated with stroke, heart attack, dementia and diabetes mellitus and to assess how much influence each risk factor has on the likelihood of having a stroke, heart attack, dementia and diabetes mellitus in the future.

The study is conducted according to the internationally accepted Good Clinical Practice Guidelines and relevant regional regulatory (Ethics) Committee) requirements. Your participation is completely voluntary. Please see the Research section of the Stroke Riskometer app for more information on the study and the consent form.
