Very exciting to see the leaders in tech partner with the leaders in cancer care.  I believe the next revolution in medicine will be driven by technology and the front line health care and research institutes.


Aggregating and utilizing data intelligently will help clinicians and reseachers better provide care to the community.  The lines between research trials and the standards of care may gradually blur as new technology driven treatment strategies emerge.

Philips, Accenture prototype app would let ALS patients mind control their devices | mobihealthnews

Philips, Accenture prototype app would let ALS patients mind control their devices | mobihealthnews | EHealth - mHealth | Scoop.it

Makers of EEG tracking headband devices have pitched the devices with a number of different use cases: as a biofeedback device to help the user manage stress, as a controller for gadgets, or as a quantified self device for assessing sleep. Now Philips Healthcare and Accenture have teamed up to show off the possibility of using one such device, the Emotiv Insight Brainware, to help patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to manage both their care and their life.

Patients with ALS, which is also called Lou Gehrig’s disease, have gradually diminished muscle control, and can eventually become completely paralyzed without losing any other brain function. Philips and Accenture have developed a proof of concept app that would allow such a patient, equipped with an Emotiv sensor, to control Philips devices like the Philips Lifeline Emergency Alert system using only their minds.

Scientists develop at-home 3D video game for stroke patients

Scientists develop at-home 3D video game for stroke patients | EHealth - mHealth | Scoop.it

The game helps stroke survivors overcome their motor weakness.

 

Washington: Scientists have developed a therapeutic at-home 3D gaming programme to help stroke patients overcome motor weakness, which affects 80 per cent of survivors.

Hemiparesis is defined as weakness or the inability to move one side of the body, and can be debilitating as it impacts everyday functions such as eating, dressing or grabbing objects, said researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

Constraint-induced movement therapy (CI therapy) is an intense treatment recommended for stroke survivors, and improves motor function, as well as the use of impaired upper extremities.

However, less than 1 per cent of those affected by hemiparesis receives the beneficial therapy. "Lack of access, transportation and cost are contributing barriers to receiving CI therapy. To address this disparity, our team developed a 3D gaming system to deliver CI therapy to patients in their homes," said Lynne Gauthier, assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation in Ohio State's College of Medicine.

Gauthier, also principal investigator of the study and a neuroscientist, is collaborating with a multi-disciplinary team comprised of clinicians, computer scientists, an electrical engineer and a biomechanist to design an innovative video game incorporating effective ingredients CI therapy.
