The Massachusetts-based company 'MC10' just premiered a revolutionary diagnostic tool at CES 2016 called the 'BioStamp.' When it comes to diagnosing neurodegenerative disorders, doctors must observe their patients with intense scrutiny. This wearable patch collects diagnostic information to give researchers and physicians "rich profiles of human activity."
The BioStamp is a wearable device that looks like a small sticker. The patch is worn directly on the skin in order to provide physicians with important diagnostic information in real time. The patch is able to gather this data thanks to the built-in gyroscope, accelerometer and mini ECG. Specifically the patch can be used to detect issues with motor skills, movement and other symptoms associated with neurodegenerative disorders.
The high-tech patch can be used to provide doctors and researchers with more specific information about a patient and any potential health issues they may have.
