ParkinSense: EngSci alumnus helps design award-winning medical monitoring system

ParkinSense is a medical monitoring system that uses wearables to provide detailed, real-time data on the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. It can be used to objectively determine the effectiveness of treatment. (Image courtesy of ParkinSense)

 

EngSci alumnus Christopher Lucasius (1T7 PEY, ECE PhD candidate) and his colleagues are among the five winning teams from Hatchery Demo Day 2021 that will share $80,000 in seed funding.

They have designed a system called ParkinSense that can provide real-time information about tremors in people living with Parkinson’s disease to their physicians.  The system can expedite treatment and track its effectiveness.
