Two students from the University of Pennsylvania are working on developing a wearable, which aims to study the tremors of Parkinson's patients.
This bracelet can track the intensity and lasting time of the tremors, as well as voluntary movements. That way, they can analyze how the treatment and its activities affect their symptoms.
All these data taken in real time are stored, to be consulted by the user's physician or therapists through a mobile application. Thus, when handling real data can measure their progress and continually personalize therapy.
In addition, as mentioned by one of the creators of the project, it is useful information for the patient because it will show them how to adjust their activities to improve their quality of life.
These students of Penn University are carrying out this project through their company XEED. For now, we will not find this wearable on the market, as they are still processing out details and testing a new prototype to make more functional characteristics. But after the tests and the necessary permissions, you are ready for funding.
We can follow the activities of this project from the page XEED .
