Title of Entry: “SymPulse™ Tele-empathy”
Category: 321c. Write Your Own Category – Other – Innovative Use of Technology
Understanding the challenges of movement disorders can be difficult for others who have never experienced movement complications. Klick Inc. aims to increase the understanding of these challenges through their SymPulse™ technology.
SymPulse™ uses an electromyography (EMG) band to convey a patient’s muscle activity to whoever is wearing the band. Using this technology, physicians, caregivers and loved ones can experience the patient’s tremors.
Klick Inc. captured volunteers’ reaction to using SymPulse™ technology in their video “Experience the Unimaginable with SymPulse™ – Leading The Tele-Empathy Revolution.” In the video, volunteers complete every-day tasks while experiencing Parkinson’s disease tremors through the SymPulse™ EMG band.
