Wearable tech could more accurately predict falls, assess MS disease state

Wearable tech could more accurately predict falls, assess MS disease state | Patient Hub | Scoop.it

A Dublin, Ireland-based company, Kinesis, has found that its QTUG system, which uses app-connected wearable sensors to assess fall risk, could be valuable for evaluating multiple sclerosis, too. Studies have found the technology to be 10 to 20 percent more accurate than existing methods for detecting falls.

Abramson says all the information these devices collect can be overwhelming. One of his patients arrived with pages and pages of Excel spread sheets full of data — everything from heart rate to symptoms to medications. Abramson says he didn’t know what to do with it all.

“Going through it and trying to analyze and extract meaning from it was not really feasible,” he says.

New technologies are doing much to benefit those patients who, for mobility reasons, cannot get to their specialist hospital as frequently as they would like. Many of these solutions are enabling their conditions to be remotely monitored - and for support and assistance to be provided, at a distance.

SPROUTLING : Savoir si bébé dort bien ... ou pas !

SPROUTLING : Savoir si bébé dort bien ... ou pas ! | Patient Hub | Scoop.it

Au vu des brouettes d’objets connectés qui sortent actuellement, mon petit doigt me dit que les parents vont être gâtés cette année en matière d’objets pour bébé. C’est vrai quoi, être parent, c’est vivre dans le stress absolu durant des mois, des années, voire des décennies.
C’est pour cela que nos gentils ingénieurs nous inventent des produits qui nous rendent de fiers services … et qui vident notre portefeuille. Bref : Bébé va devoir vivre les premiers mois de sa vie avec douze capteurs sur le corps afin que maman puisse faire du shopping sur le Net et que papa remplisse la cave à vin tranquillement pour fêter les 28 prochains anniversaires de leur progéniture chérie.

[Bilan] 15 objets connectés qu'il ne fallait pas manquer au CES 2015

[Bilan] 15 objets connectés qu'il ne fallait pas manquer au CES 2015 | Patient Hub | Scoop.it
Le CES 2015 a refermé ses portes la semaine dernière sur une large sélection d’accessoires connectés. La présence française importante grâce au soutien d’UbiFrance a permis aux startups tricolores de briller mais pas seulement.
Cette édition du CES 2015 était placée sous le signe des objets connectés, de la vidéo UHD, du son multiroom et des véhicules autonomes. On a clairement vu moins de nouveaux accessoires, de lunettes connectés (etc.) mais plus d’usages aboutis. C’est bon signe. Le carton plein de Parrot –qui place 2 produits dans notre top 15– et l’absence de Jawbone sont les 2 faits marquants pour moi, avec la présence Française. Voici 15 coups de coeur de l’équipe de rédaction.

The future of fitness could just be a chest-worn sticker

The future of fitness could just be a chest-worn sticker | Patient Hub | Scoop.it

For the last couple of years, medical science has been working on a way to build health sensors into stickers for better patient monitoring. It looks as if the folks behind AmpStrip might have gotten there first. AmpStrip is a piece of wearable technology that sticks onto your chest (we're told that the ideal location is below your nipple) and monitors your vitals without needing any other of the numerous fitness products we've seen on the market.

 

Nestled within the Band-Aid-sized hardware is an accelerometer, thermometer and a heart rate sensor, which, combined, are capable of monitoring your heart rate, movement and activity. You don't actually stick the AmpStrip directly onto your skin, it has to be said; instead you use a sticky pad that lasts for between three and seven days, depending on your workout. Stick it down properly, however, and it should hold firm even when you go swimming, which you can do with the AmpStrip.

 

Because the hardware is self-contained, you'll need to drop it onto a wireless charging plate for a couple of hours. That's not much charging, but the company promises that a combination of Bluetooth Low Energy and some secret algorithmic sauce will keep the battery ticking over for a full seven days. The hardware itself is currently in beta, but now that AmpStrip has beaten its Indiegogo goal, production should begin sometime this summer.
